post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Any one here ever used "Black Oak" firewood for smoking. If so, how was it and what did you cook using it?

There is Black Jack and Blue Jack Oak. Both can be used for smoking. Black Jack oak is most excellent. I use most of my oak for Beef.

I usually use black and white oak as my mix wood with fruit wood. I'll use 1 piece of oak to every 3 pieces of fruit wood.  In Eastern NC I know of a of resturant that uses strictly oak logs for cooking butts overnight producing a wonderful Eastern NC Q. Not sure which oak because there is a wide variety of oaks in the state.

 Oak is the # 1 wood used in most BBQ joints.

It is a type of Red Oak. Black Jack is just the name. All oaks are either White or Red.
