    Hi guys! I'm smoking some baby backs and tri-tip today. I just got some peach wood chips and wanted to mix it with either hickory, pecan or apple chunks. What combination do you think will go best for todays cook?

    It's all a matter of taste. Personally I would think peach like apple is a light flavor so I wouldn't use it for ribs I'd use it with poultry or fish

    It's all good.  I think I would use some pecan with the peach for a mild flavor.

    Peach, Apple, pecan, cherry all go good. I do apple/peach for ribs quite often. Cherry-pecan is my favorite for tri tip though!
  5. Smoker,

    I recently found a commercial supplier of cooking woods who has peach in log and or small logs. I bought 5 bags...apprx 200 lbs of peach logs. I cook pork with just the peach...If you need to use chips I still wouldn't add another wood as it will overpower the peach. Apple and pecan works well but with peach....just go peach!
