The almond tree is native to the Middle East where it eventually was brought to the United States. Now, California and the Central Valley region is the largest almond producer in the world.
The almond tree grows to around 30 feet in height and begins bearing a harvestable crop 3 years after planting. The trees reach full bearing 5 to 6 years after planting. We've determined that almond is a great choice for heating, but is it any good for cooking? You bet!
Although it's not as popular as mesquite or apple, many people choose to smoke their food with almond. The wood will give your food a sweet, nutty flavor that's absolutely delicious.
For cooking purposes, almond is very similar to pecan.
If you're looking for a bolder flavor, using larger chunks of almond will generally give you better results compared to using small amounts of almond chips.
