    My wood guy delivered two cords of locust yesterday.

    I mentioned my plans to try a pizza in my new stove, and he added an armload of apple to the last load he delivered. He says the pizza would taste funny if I used my regular firewood, but the apple will do fine.

    And I think he said cherry also is good for baking pizza. I have some splits of cherry that I could set aside for pizza nights.

    I think if you're making pizza in your stove, it's going to be coaled and way past the smoking stage and probably won't matter much what kind of wood you use. Good idea though, locust is way to stinky to take a chance.

    Do you prefer Chianti or Cab/savs with your pie? I'll be right over.

    Currently drinking a fantastic Carmenere after a big flavor skirt steak and chimichuri sauce with sauted 'spergus and fingerling potate's with blue cheese sauce. (maybe even one too many, but I won't tell, if you don't :cheese: )

    Good grief, Jags! I'm a Coors Light girl. Such cosmopolitan taste you've got there...

    Mmmmm. I love a good carmenere. We have some good vineyard in Walla Walla that are producing some nice vintages, though they can be pricey.

    FWIW, I didn't note any bad taste in our last stove fired pizza with doug fir. The wood is all coals by that point and with no smoke to speak of. But I have some peach and some cherry wood, so this winter I will try some different wood to see if his theory holds up.

    Seems like a shame to use what's some really fine smoking wood for cooking a pizza. As has been noted, you're gonna let the fire get into coaling before you put the pizza in...so the character of the wood is already gone, and it's just a bunch of hot stuff. Rick
