Thanks for the question regarding Mango wood.  Although limited in the
areas they can grow (India, Florida, Caribbean, Hawaii, etc.), Mango wood
is very popular for upper end wood products like bowls, vases, and even
some furniture.  However, you are correct.  Mango wood contains a sap
that is located at the base of the stem, branches, and trunk. As a result,
a recommendation is made never to burn mango wood as it emits a smoke
that is full of potent irritants.  Plus, Mango trees are highly
suseptible to a number of diseases and pest infestations,
including the fruit fly, black twig borer, sooty mold, and
southern green stink bug to name a few. Pesticide application
is generally necessary to maintain the health of these trees.
Because of the chemical application, Mango wood does not make
for good BBQ!
Stick to forest producing products for the safest woods for BBQ!
