Vine Maple for smoking?

Never used it, keep hearing it's outstanding for smoking meats.  Anyone use it before?

I've used it and thought it worked well. Just remember to peel it when it's green because the bark really sticks when it's dry.

it's the best IMO. I never peel it, just scrape any moss off it. It will burn when wet and provide a relatively cool fire with a lot of smoke.

Thatís all my dad used for doing salmon. Works well on fish. Never tried it with meats.

After giving up on long bow projects, I smoked the rest.

It really smells good.  After reading about it, I burned it green like they said too.  I also skinned it with a machete (easy) before I chunked it.

Vine maple is the best.  Close second is Hazelnut.  Both give great results green with the bark on.
