Best smoker? And wood to use?

It depends on what you plan on smoking.
My go to for everything lately is a blend of hickory, cherry, and pecan.
Of course, you could use any one of those woods individually with outstanding results.

I like hickory, got a bag of pecan I haven't tried out yet, oak has worked great in the past. Nice looking rig you have there Cobb, and welcome to SMF. RAY

I don't know where you live but here in the desert hardwood isn't easy to come by. I order three bags of hickory splits from Cabelas for about $85 and get free shipping. It burns good and arrives at my doorstep. RAY

Try Craigslist for some seasoned wood.
Myself I like using cherry...it's my go to wood.
Oak is my next favorite.

Great looking smoker. I use chunks also, as the only wood we have local is fruit wood. I really like using hickory, it's my go to. I like doing a pork butt for my break-in cook. Does a good job of seasoning up your cooker i.m.o.
