I have only smoked 1 Salmon so far in my smoker. Used hickory. Turned out pretty good for my first time. I will do some things differently next time, but over all, it wasn't bad, it was gone in about 1 hour. What is the rule for mixing wood types? Let say, use both Hickory and Mequite. Does anyone do that? Or should I be more of a purest and stay with one wood type at a time. Suggestions and comments for combinations are appreciated, if that is an OK thing. Like I said, all I have smoked so far is one salmon so I am still learning. I am planning on doing some ribs this weekend. I have hickory and mesquite that I can use, I am just wondering which one to use. Thanks all! I will get some pictures of my first rib try!
