Birch for smoking?

I have some European White Birch trees that I'm pruning, and wonder if anyone has tried Birch as a smoking wood? Seems its related to Alder, which we like for fish.

thanks in advance

    generally we get steered away from soft woods....

    toss a piece in the fire and give it the sniff test, maybe try it on a chicken breast
