Last evening after work I headed to Holt Michigan for a karate seminar.
Before it began I had a chance to briefly meet up with Joe Mama of Eaton Rapids Joe. The good sir brought me quite a present indeed:
Yes, that's a whole lot of wood for smoking: Hickory, Apple, Pecan and Mulberry, enough to fill the trunk and rear seating area to the brim. Each box was full and smelled great.
That's a closeup of some Mulberry - I've never used it as a smoking wood before so it should be interesting to try it out. It should be a fantastic smoking summer. After the karate seminar was over, I got in the car and it smelled great - the apple wood especially has a very nice fresh scent.
Then I went home through high winds, lightening and a thunderstorm that had visibility on the highway down at times to a few feet, which sucked.
Thanks again to Eaton Rapids Joe for a fine gift of some wood. He joked that he had found a city slicker that he could offload some wood on, and he indeed found an appreciative one.
