Tooch …Going out on a limb! ;) .... Noob here, a lurker and learner , But! If you re into BBQ and, If you were to cut the portions of the boards with the nail holes away in order to make boxes, etc., don t discard them. Save those little pieces for smoking meats, especially Pork. Hogs eat Chestnuts ( It s a natural pairing … that s another topic) I would temper it a bit with Fruit Woods. Apple wood be first choice, Cherry next. Hogs eat those too. Try a piece, soaked for 30 minutes in water, on some coals and check out the aroma. I ve never personally gotten any Chestnut for “Q”, but have heard it s quite nice. The only Nut wood I ve used thus far is Pecan.

That’s a great call. I’ve made a few oak planks for grilling salmon. after soaking them for a few hrs I like to drop on some liquid smoke to add some flavor and it turns out pretty darn good. Will definitely keep any scraps
