Stick burners - oak?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've heard of people using oak as a general wood fuel, but what I haven't determined is whether they're using WHITE or RED oak.  Any thoughts?  I've got a new pit that'll handle a 15" split and would like the option of burning wood..., oak is the easiest to find but most of what I see is red.


Appreciate any thoughts,



P.S.  Been gone from here a while, but been smoking all the while!

Hello.  The short answer is: Yes.  Either will work fine.  Keep Smokin!

Oak is my preferred wood on my side firebox smoker. Red or white.

To my taste, oak smoke is a bit strong, but it's my favorite wood for good, long-lasting embers. Once I have a bed of those, I can another wood for fragrance.

My pit will handle 18" split. However it don't work well with the longer wood so I cut them down 10" - 12" and split them pretty small. I get a lot less smoke and can reach the TBS we all love using to smaller chunks.
