Vance,
I’m going to be writing an article about this technique soon. You can use different woods but they will all have different effects, as far as I know, because they have different sugar content. I have roasted cherry and it worked well. It has an ebonizing effect on the wood. I say do an experiment with the lacewood and show the pictures here. Regarding the smoker, I have no idea if it would work or not. my most successful attempts have been getting the wood to the 360 degree temperature and holding it there for four to five hours. I”ve noticed some effect after three hours but the color doesn’t change much. it actually turns a bit more gray, which doesn’t look so great. five hours has been the magic time for me. the wood gets very roasty. good luck and keep us posted.
