What is your favorite wood to use when you smoke?
If you use different wood for different meats what do you like to use on fish chicken beef etc. ?
Brisket - Hickory and/or Mesquite
Ribs - hickory and apple mix
chicken - mesquite and apple mix
fish - alder only
but it also depends on what you like , i do mix it up just to see what the wood does to the taste
I can't get Pecan as some of the 'lucky' folk can , so I use:
Hickory-because I love it on Beef and some Fowl
Oak as an extender and for some staeks
Maple on Chicken , Pork Loin
Cherry on Ribs and BB's and Butts , when I have enough.
I don't do fish with Alder anymore $$$ - but it does well in Maple
Apple is aother good one for Pork
All are locally available and if I need something , I go to a friends and repay them with some goodies...
Have fun and as always. . .
