    Smoking a small venison roast today. Marinated overnight in Allegro. Can't make up my mind on the choice of wood. Here's my choices...

    Maple (white & sugar)
    Apple
    Cherry
    Hickory
    Red Oak

    Combinations would work as well.

    Thoughts everyone?????

    cherry is a good fist choice that ahs a reputation for complimenting wild game, so is apple or maple - i've done a 1:1:1 combination of the three and have had very good results.

    there is absolutely no bad choice,

    What Bubba said! The only thing I do different is mix in a little apple. Smoked venison is good stuff.[​IMG]
