    Whatever you have on hand. If you don't like it, try another kind. Asking what flavor you'll like best is kind of like asking someone what your favorite color should be don't you think?
    I personally like pecan best. Unless I'm in the mood for cherry. Or if I happen to only have apple on hand....

  6. Chicken takes on smoke pretty quick, use whatever flavor you like but sparingly

    Personally I like cherry but can't always get it, hickory too but also sometimes hard to get, in Florida oak is always plentiful, like was stated try what you have, try others but like Gary said chicken takes on smoke and flavor pretty quick, remember it is fun to try different rubs, sauces and wood, find the combo you like, one thing I try to do is try one thing different at a time, I try not to change multiple things, this way you know which changes are good for you
  8. Chicken is going to be a pretty quick smoke, if you have an Academy, Lowe's, Home Depot, Wally World go pick up a bag or two of different chucks and try them out.
