So a friend from New Hampshire sends me a goodie box in the mail yesterday, completely unexpected. Nice surprise, really! Contents:
-2 jugs of his homemade maple syrup, made from sap tapped right on his woodlot.
-4 page letter
-1 Moose bumper sticker

AND slices of crabapple wood. Cut from limbs he pruned from a bunch of them on his property.

I'm wondering how alike or dissimilar it and the apple wood I purchased from a dealer is?
Any insight/experience with crabapple appreciated!

I like it, but i have not done a cook off with both apple and crab apple to compare both woods. that's an idea for the future
