If I use a apple brine & rub should I use apple wood chips
on turkey or use another type of wood chips I have a Mes--40
You can still whatever smoke flavor you like. Apple chips may tie it all together or use a stronger wood to accentuate. I recently smoked turkey with hickory smoke just because I like it. There is no wrong answer. Try it both ways and see what you like best.
I mostly use apple wood on chicken and turkey because I always read that poultry takes on smoke easier than other meats, so I was afraid of over smoking birds. Apple and cherry are more mild. I have used cherry, and I really like it for almost everything. I do know that mesquite is a very strong wood and can ruin a meal if you use to much. I threw some in my gas grill long ago making hamburgers and it was too much for me, have not used it since.
I may give hickory a try on poultry just to see what I'm missing.
how did your apple chicken come out last week--Ken
