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!!!
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.
