    I was given some chunked oak and was wondering what the best recipe and cut of meat I should try on. I have both a gas, GOSM and an electric smoker.

    Oak tends to give a heavy smoke flavor, so I'd say a brisket or loin would be good. I don't think oak would be good for fish or chicken, but since I've never used it with fish or chicken, I could be wrong.

    Oak is pretty mellow in my experience. Also, a good heat producer. I HAVE done all wood smokes using oak coals and flavor wood on top...sucessfully. My rec is poultry - but like I said...it's mellow so try it whereever...it won't suck :{)

    Hmm...well.. I guess this is what makes SMF great! Use the oak and report!
