Hey gang,

just got a butt put together for superbowl and was excited to find some pecan wood pellets at the store yesterday so picked em up-

i have it rubbed down with jeff's rub and sitting in the fridge right now-

was wondering your guys' thoughts on using pecan wood for my butt?


Should be great don't forget the Qview
Sounds like you are set! Pecan is one of my favorite smoking woods it'll work great for that. Enjoy the game and drop on back with a little play by play of your weekend smoke. 
Pecan is one of my most versatile woods I use. 

I use Pecan or Apple almost exclusively, and have tried my share of woods as well. 

Can't go wrong with Pecan buddy! 
Yup of my favorites..

 Have a great day!

Let me know how that goes. 

I have never used pecan.  Seems like a fruit wood might be a little lite for a butt unless it is mixed with another wood.  Having said that, our household likes lighter and sweeter smokes. 

Can't wait to hear back from you. 

Good luck and good smoking. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
