    Just curious if anyone has any advice on what kind of meats go well with peach. I picked a bag of chunks up today and using it with cherry and hickory mixed ( unfortunately I'm out of my favorite, pecan) anywho I got a whole chicken smokin with a whole reds red apple beer on fresh garlic clove a sprig of rosemary some fresh basile and a sweet onion all in a ceramic beer can chicken thingy with the bird rub down with some olive oil and everglades rub! Wow the smell is AMAZING! I was wondering anyone use peach with pork like ribs and or Boston butt?

      You never know what you will like till you try it.  Don't be afraid to try a new wood! Most fruit woods are great.

    I agree. I am looking forward to the pear wood as well. I must say the wings turned out great!
  10. I've smoked ribs and butts with a mix of peach and oak. Loved them, I also use Peach Porkalicious Sauce.

    I have smoked belly bacon, loin, turkey, and Canadian bacon on peach..... It was tastee! Pecan is also my favorite, probably because it's what most folks use around here. When I left home and ran into a pecan smoked item, it was kind of a reminder. Now I am back, and the bulk is pecan. I have been trying a lot of different smokes, the one that surprized me the most was corn cob. Unbelieveable color and a very mild sweet taste like a fruit. I know, I was surprized too.

    Pork and peach wood go good together as does fowl.
