I live in a remote part of Alaska so it can be hard to get what you need some times. Thanks for all the info guys.
    I made powder with CC made from willow that wasn't dried and it worked fine. If you have the time to dry it, good, but go ahead and make some just to get started and see what happens. None of the CC that I have made has been dried before processing. Of course ignorance might be bliss in this case.

    I have often thought of using old cricket bats that were made of willow. Probably not many cricket bats in the US.

    Adler is used for smoking fish (and I think it tastes nasty ) and it seems to be extremely "greasy" and aromatic . I hope that it might just be in the bark ? As has been mentioned before there is LOTs of it up here in the north of Alaska.

    I like scrap popular I get from a wood shop. Political correctness is ruining this country and this forum.

    I'm willing to bet you can't go off half cocked with pushywillow charcoal BP . Cockeyed sights make you miss a titmouse . Boobytraps are probably on the auto chop too . Remember a few yr ago after an upgrade when you couldn't call a 7.7 Arisaka by it's more common name 7.7 Jap ? I'm surprised we can still describe powder as black .

    I got in trouble once at a job when I talked about a good pair of dikes (wire cutters). Just made some Carolina willow cc for my next batch. Seems that the willow cc is lighter than the red cedar cc I used for my first batch. Think I'll have some red skinned potatoes with dinner
