    Default Cooking with pine?

    This may not belong here, but it is the closest I can find. I have a WSM with a leaky door and bent bottom vents. It controls air like a 3 month old controls its bladder.

    I bought two bags of wood and discovered too late that it was pine. I know that smoking with pine is like taking your sister to the prom, it may sound good, but the end result is just an embarrassment to you and your family.

    So my question is, can I grill with it? I am thinking building a fire with pine in the WSM and grill some rib eyes I bought. Good idea or bad?

    I wouldn't use it even for grilling. Pine will burn fast and hot and puts off residue in the smoke. I don't use any softwoods for cooking, but thats just my opinion. I won't even use it in my fireplace. Makes too much creosote.

    Or you can just pour a bottle of Pinesol on those ribeyes. Have ya ever handled a 2 x 4 and gotten that sticky stuff on your hands? Have ya accidently put your hand on you mouth and tasted it? Double yuck!!!!!!!!! I'll bet you'd have the for a week after cooking with pine. Don't do it!

    Well, at least I have some fire wood for camping now. The bags were not labeled and it wasn't until I got home and the bill that I found out what type of wood it was. They were they perfect size too.

    Thanks to all for the help. Time to chop some birch so I can cook those rib eyes.

    I say go get some real smoking wood and take that pine off to the side and build a nice fire to keep warm with... You do get chilly at night right?

    Buy a chimenea and burn it for ambiance. It's most likely pinion pine and really smell good while burning, but do not, I repeat, do not burnt it in your cookers.
