I just got my 1st wood burner Oklahoma Joe Highlander and I love it. It is a positive thing to do at home. Smoking beats BBQ hands down. I really like smoking with wood it take the cooking outdoors experience to a whole nother level. Concrete boy myself from Indianapolis. I would like to get my hands on some pecan wood and see what that is all about. None grows locally. I got cherry, apple, oak, hickory; plenty of those around. I am also wanting to experience smoking with hardwood maple. Interested in hearing and learning from you veterans stick burners.
