    I just picked up some jack daniels chips today. Would they be good for a pork butt?

    I use hickory, oak, & pecan on everything.

    Mainly because it's cheap & available around here.

    I've used hickory and pecan.  I like pecan the best but you can't go wrong with either!!

    What kind of oak do you typically use?  Theres plenty of oak around me but I haven't been very impressed with it.  Maybe its the species of oak?

    I use red oak.

    Make sure it's seasoned & dry.
