Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

AVOCADO wood for smoking ... results

Awhile back I asked if anyone had tried avocado wood for smoking. Apparently no one had as I got no responses and searches in the Internet for information were futile.
Well, I have tried it now. Knowing that chicken takes up smoke flavor to a greater extent than anything I am aware of I cooked unseasoned chicken breasts using 3 small chunks of seasoned avocado wood. The result was a pleasant, mild smoke flavor akin to orange. Luckily we are surrounded by avocado groves and they sell the wood as firewood for campers. There is so much of the stuff here, anyone interested in smoking an elephant or two?
