Smoking with Lilac wood?
Anyone ever smoke with lilac branches before. I have quite a bit of branches that I saved from spring cleaning, and I was going to be smoking this weekend and was thinking of using some of the lilac branches with some lamb, maybe some seafood too. Any advise would be appreciated.
I haven't used it, but I have notes on various smoking woods. Lilac is actually quite light with a hint of floral taste. It is recommended for use with fish and lamb.
I have used Lilac wood often to smoke chicken, ribs, etc. It works out
well. The Lilac I have is old, large and well seasoned, so I don't know
how well wood that is on the green side would work. We used to have a
store locally called the Outdoor Cooking Store, and Lilac was their most
expensive wood to buy for smoking.
