Hi Dennis, Gary W0GDS. Types of wood to use for various meats.
Depending upon how your equipment & you can maintain cooking
Beef can be prepared with any hardwood such as Hickory, Oak and
even Maple. These woods can also be paired with fruit tree wood.
Hardwoods are used to flavor meats for long keeping or serving.
Fruit tree woods are used for one sitting or serving event.
Whether you use a dry smoker with an offset fire box, or if you
use an electric water smoker, or variations there of, you need to
study the many materials available on Sublime Smoke to learn
the wonderful art of preparing meals in this manner. There are
many books on the market that give you a wealth of information
and teach you all about the equipment, seasonings, how to make
your own rubs, using spices, how to make your own seasonings,
sauces and marinades, If you've never cooked before you have
a large learning curve to travel. Stay Hungry My Friend!
