  2. Hi Ken ..i have never smoked with oak but i can post this from the Wiki on this site.

    OAK - Heavy smoke flavor. Red oak is good on ribs, white oak makes the best coals for longer burning. Good with red meat, fish and heavy game.

    Hope this helps.

    Oak produces mild smoke compared to Hickory

    The smoke is not overpowering

    My neighbor gave me 6 cut whiskey barrels made from oak, they were cut about 6 inchs from the top for a design project. I used the staves for smoking and it created an incredible flavor. I have a bin full and I will be upset when it is gone. I like the flavor of oak on red meat. Have not tried it on fish yet???
