Any or all of the above would be great. Some like a smokier taste some milder. Hickory is the strongest out of the three, then the maple then the cherry.

I don't smoke any beef but for pork I usually use hickory or pecan. I save the fruit woods like apple and cherry for the poultry.

You can't go wrong with any of them!!

Would it be wise to mix like maple, and Cherry together?

I never have but can't imagine it would be bad. Cherry is super mild and maple is not very strong either.

play with 1 wood-no need to mix at this point-hickory mesquite-brings strong flavor-fruits give a milder taste-good for fowl-fish-no need to mix strong & fruit-

I would mix Hickory and Cherry, this combo seems to work for just about everything.

You want TEXAS style...BEEF & MESQUITE...

I prefer (actually, my wife) a 'lighter smoke'...Hickora'

--apple wood combo...with my pork
