    my mom and step-dad live out in the country. they have 8.5 acres of land (2 acres is a stock tank (pond to you northern folks). she told me she has mesquite, post oak, and other trees. i have seen a huge mesquite tree out there. i don't really know one tree from another, by looks, except for a few. i have two big pecan trees here in my yard. she told me i can have all i wanted, just to let her know and she will cut me some and bring it to me.

    my question is, has anyone ever used post oak?

    Post Oak is an excellent wood for smoking. It's similar in flavor to the White Oak. Enjoy!

    Agreed that Post Oak is a good wood. I usually mix Post Oak or Red Oak with my Pecan when I am smoking. It burns long, hot, and clean.
