Hello everyone! Quick question, I like to use oak when I smoke. Here in Spain they have a wood called Encina which as far as I have been able to find out is white oak (it is the tree that produces the acorns they feed to the pigs used to make jam├Án). Does anyone have experience using white oak for their smokers?

I have used it before. It is very good. I don't know if any of the oak varieties are bad smoking woods.

I just asked because I'm not familiar with it. Thanks timberjet! I also have some lemon wood from a tree I cut down because the wind broke it. Can that be used as well?

Any fruit wood is good smoking wood with apple and cherry being my all time favorite. I can't wait to see how you like lemon wood smoke. I bet it would be great on chicken and fish.

I use white oak as my heat source for my Lang and use hickory and or any fruit wood for flavor.

Hey! Thanks for the reply Dutch! I tried the white oak on some fish the other day and it turned out great!
