So after contemplating where this post fit in best I've decided that it probably fits best here. (Moderators, feel free to move it if you want) Being pretty new to the smoking world, and knowing that newbies like me are signing up on this forum all the time, I think that it would be helpful to us all, and was wondering if it was possible, if we could have a sticky topic on wood types, and uses (ya know, what wood is best suited for different types of meat as well as tips on what wood not to use) to make sure that we can have an easy place to find all that info. Other info that I'm curious about includes the "seasoning" of wood to use in smoking. Does that mean just letting it sit outside as it was cut off the tree and dry out naturally, does it need to be split first to season properly, or is there something more complex about this process? Thanks All!
