i am doing the same with you my friend. i use dry pine needles.but with all fires here we can't visit the forests when the wether condition is red(very dangerous). so i am looking for something else.sqkcrk said:chemical smoke? What do you mean?
For smoker fuel, I usually use bailer twine, which I don't know if you can get or not. It is used twine from bales of hay from dairy farms. There are many different smoke making materials. With your pine trees, do you use the dry pine needles for smoker fuel? I do when I am in South Carolina, a state 1,000 miles south of me where my bees go for the winter.
Lately beekeepers have been using wood pellets, compressed wood that is usually used by people who want to heat their homes.
What is the flavor and color of your different honeys? Dark or light? Mild flavored or strong? Robust? How would you describe thyme honey or pinetree honey?
