My uncle always sees that i have something in the smoker. After he tasted the q, he fell in love. He works for a stair bulding company, and has acess to all sorts of wood. Look what he bulit for me. I have oak, hickory, cherry, pear, mulberry, maple, and beech. Plus i have another box full of hickory, and a 4 foot piece of pear wood in the shed. Talk about a suprise, i love it.
