    I have some orange wood I've yet to use but the first thing I want to try with it is chicken.

    Another that I think would be very good is a stuffed pork loin in orange wood. I'm sure anything would be good with orange wood but I think the loins and chickens are where I'm gonna start personally

    I've used plenty of orange zest on beef, so smoking it over orange wood might be interesting. It's supposed to be a mild wood, so definitely do some poultry at some point. For beef and pork, you might supplement it with some oak.

    I've used Osage Orange wood for chicken & pork with good results. 1 word of caution it burns very hot so keep an eye on your thermo.
