Oak is a great wood , you don't want it , load it up and send it to me...I like Oak ,less astringent that Hickory , a great pair with Pecan and long burning with lots of BTU's.

some of the greatest bbq restaurants and pitmasters in the world rely on oak. Pinoak is superb its a type of red oak (Spanish) and is about all I use when grilling fish, smoking beef, lamb, and even cheese. white oak is also great where one of the more famous is post oak (used by world famous central texas bbq restaurants. Any oak is great IMEO. Of course the black sheep of the oak family if you ask any real Texan will tell you is Blackjack. Not a favorite of the oak family but is used when need be.
