Have a new, seasoned Masterbuilt electric smoker and ready to break it in. I've selected an arm roast, a dry rub of paprika, black pepper, salt, mustard seed, nutmeg, garlic, allspice, sugar, ginger, thyme, sage, red pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla bean. The only thing I'm stuck on is the wood selection. My wife doesn't like a strong smoke flavor but I want to know its been smoked. I was thinking Pecan but wasn't sure if there was a better option. The meat is still thawing in the fridge so I have time to get some input.
Pecan is a great flavor wood. Goes well with just about anything and isn't too strong....especially for beef chuck.....which is where the arm roast comes from. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
