Was on a job the other day and a Newfoundlander told me they smoke salmon using wild blackberry bushes. Has anyone ever heard of this or tried it. He says the very best I've never heard of anyone using Berry bushes.

You'd have to dry em out first ?? You'd never keep em lit while green.

 

I think winter time would be an optimum time to get a back load of em to try

Nope use green as the heat will dry them enough to smoke and not burn
After all it's the smoke you want

Just the "wood"?  Bark on or off?  Leaves?   

Sounds like something worth a try!  :-)

Growing up in Labrador we used black berry bushes as well but its not the same type as here in NS. The black berry bushes being used in NL are found along the coastline, it produces small round black berries. Not only was the bushes used but the entire sod was scraped from the rock and used.

Would they be the same as the crow berries?? I think the boys would call them

Thought so. Only reason I remember them was one moose hunting trip the lady said we are having crow pie for supper and I didnot say anything but wanted to puke thinking man bad enough I had to kiss a cod now I have to eat crow :(

I found out later is was crow berry pie and like you say I would love to have another pie right now

Man it was good

Take care
