    First, let me just say I've only smoked with Mesquite and Hickory. They're great, but man are they....smoky.

    I was looking around the local Mejiers and I found a bag of apple wood chips! It was about $2.99. I threw some in a foil packet in the good 'ol silver smoker....and whew...that is the sweetest smelling smoke I ever did smell. Yum. I've enclosed a picture of the bag, no weight included but it said it was 180 square inches.

    If you found mesquite and hickory to be a little strong then I think you'll be pleased with the lighter flavor of apple. It may be a little too light for beef when used alone as it is a very mellow wood so I like to blend it with pecan for beef. :D Hope you find it to your liking.
  6. I like guessing games too. My guess is you got it from Walmart.

    I am geussing you did not go to a store anywhere near my area of the country. I went out Saturday and drove around for 3 hours to 7 different locations. I could not find apple or cherry wood chunks to save my life. Now I am using hickory, which I never used. I like the why the hickory is working, but I LOVE the fruit flavored woods.
