I like a mix of mesquite and hickory but I have to admit that some good oak smoked into my brisket is mighty tasty. I have been using a lot of red oak lately, but I can't tell much difference in taste between red and white oak.

I have heard bbq places always state what type of oak they use as if it makes a difference, but in my experience all Oak's seem to give the same flavor and burn pretty much the same

I've seen some that do and some that don't if you ask they should tell you. I know on guy (just a small BBQ place ) that only uses red oak another place uses hickory most of the franchise places use a mix of oak
