So...I just got my FEC a couple of weeks ago and it ships with hickory.
I've always found hickory a bit strong and have preferred Apple, Cherry, and Pecan for my smokes.
But I've read that Pellet Smokers may have less 'smoky flavor' than the Amerique I was using before...and even with the hickory, this certainly seemed to be the case (though I must admit, it was my first smoke and so the FEC has certainly not been well seasoned...yet...)
I'm going to Pine Bluff next week to pick up a couple hundred pounds of pellets from BBQr's Delight and was wondering if ya'll had any suggestions? Do ya'll use different woods in your Pellet Smoker because of the less intense smoke flavor...if so, what?
