Newbie with wood questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am planning on smoking some sausage in the next few days. The mixture is half venison half pork. I have used alder and cherry before. I preferred alder but I might have smoked with the cherry too long. Does any one have suggestions for wood. I was thinking apple. maybe mixing apple and cherry. Any suggestions are welcome. Some of the sausage will have jalapeño in it. Thanks.

Ill beat everyone else to the punch... Stop in Roll Call and give us some back ground ... now to answer your question, I use a mix of Apple and Hickory on my sausage and love it... Good to have ya here.

ya what fireguy says about roll call-the bible says no fruit wood on sausage-hickory is best-but just my many links worth-or is that 2 cents?

Apple on ANYTHING is good IMO... Hickory is traditional on alot of sausages tho. OAk as well.

For sausage I have used hickory for years and a little mesquite, but lately have really been enjoying apple. I need to start trying others also; I have pecan, cherry, alder and maple. Need to find some good oak.....
