    I am not positive, but I think you will be looking for wood from a Sugar Maple tree.

    Maple works for me:)

    I have sugar maples around here and occasionally one falls or has to be cut. I like the flavor, its mild, but makes a nice smoke ring, and is plenty hot for cooking.

    When I have oak, I will mix it in or even better apple:)

    May just have to add maple to my list...I see 8 lined up in my neighbors yard everyday. [​IMG]
