Hickory Floor parts

OK...I'll try again. I posted this on Monday with no response. Somebody has to have an opinion...

My neighbor gave me some scraps from the hickory floor he just had installed in his kitchen. The builder says it's 100% hickory that is untreated.

Can this be used in the egg for smoke?

Any help appreciated!

    You will get a better response from this if you post the question at More people read that forum than this one (*.net). I personally would be afraid that it had some varnish or what-not on it.

    how certain are you that the wood is NOT treated ?
    the installer doesn't know everything- if you can contact the manufacturer, ask them. I have my doubts that's untreated. To be safe, i would not use it.

    Thanks for the replies. I am not 100% sure it's not treated. I am relying only on what my friend said. It sure looks like it is just plain ole' wood, but you might be right Chef...better to not take the chance.

    To be honest, I thought both forums were the same. There are different posts on each?

    If you post at the message is forwarded to the site. If you post on the site it does NOT get sent to the *.com site. The *.net site is still in beta and some folks don't look at it. If you post on the *.com site everyone will see it.

    I had no clue that the posting was a little different. Thanks for the info.
