    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.

    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?

    I am using a mixture of ash, apple and hickory right now. Usually I just use ash.

    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.....
