South Florida BBQing

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if I can use the various hardwoods in my SW Florida backyard to safely BBQ?

Thinking that Mahogany might have some funky resin in it. What about sea grape? It is very hard and would no doubt be perfect. Anyone know if it is safe?

Plenty of oak even in Sanibel. I've used seagrape from my yard. It's safe as far as I can tell. Produces edible fruit and I've seen some old Florida cracker cookbooks mention smoking fish with seagrape. Of course all your citrus trees would be fine for smoking as well. Just stay away from the oleander.
