    I'm interested in that info too. The ice storm last winter left plenty of it available.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT PUT THAT PEAR ON THE BURN PILE. it is very much like apple wood. It has a great taste and aroma. If you dont want it, I'm sure someone will snap it up in a hurry.

    Now if you're eever headed this direction and have a whole rick of cherry, I'd swap you 1 1/2 ricks of pecan for it.
    I have a wood splitting maul that I use to split my wood with. When I get rich, I'm gonna get me a hydraulic splitter. A friend of mine has a cherry tree a in his backyard that was destroyed by the ice storm. He told me that if I wanted to come and cut it down I could have the wood. Me and my son are going to do that this coming weekend. I have quite a bit of apple ,pear and pecan that I got as a result of the ice storm to go along with the large supply of hickory I already had cut and split. The ice storm we had here in Oklahoma was tragic for the tree here. But it sure was a God send for smokers!!

    Me too. I also have two small pecans trees that went down in the storm at my office parking lot,but I don't have a chain saw. It would be easy to strap them to my truck and pull them the rst of the way down. There's prolly 3/4 of a rick to be had.
