Russian Sage as a Smoking Wood? PDF Print E-mail

Hi Dr. BBQ:

I just cut back my overgrown Russian Sage and was trying to confirm whether or not it would be a good idea to use the wonderful smelling wood in the BBQ.

Thanks for your very informative articles!!!


Hello Laura:

No, do not use this plant with food, as it is listed as an irritant to the skin.  In one forum, a grower reports that deer will not eat it, which is a bad sign for culinary use.
