    Lamb is popular meat in this household! I've grilled lamb over mesquite and also with hickory, but never smoked any lamb. I don't see any reason why apple wouldn't be great with it.

    What cut are you smoking?

    I say go ahead, it's a good match. Keep us posted and don't forget the q-vue![​IMG]

    I have used pecan.Apple sounds excellent.
  4. Results were excellent with the apple wood... Did a quick smoke of a small Lamb Chop just to get some added flavor which the apple wood did perfectly!

    Hickory is king but i've been told oak is fabulous.

    Apple is the way to go. I use it most of all. Hickory is a close second. I personally have never smoked lamb, just grilling but after your report I mite just have to give it a try.

    apple should be good, i have heard that lilac is excellent, but haven't tried it.
