Need advise on my new smoker. I was going to have a block base 3 blocks high. I then wanted to put a propane burner inside the block base and build a wood smoker enclosure on top of the base. I am wondering what wood to build the enclose out of? Do I use oak, hickory, or what? Also, I want to use this as a hot smoker. What temp do I run the smoker at? Thanks all!

For hot smoking I would suggest some type of stainless steel lining on the inside.
