Hi guy's,

I'm am trying to get a sweeter taste from my pork ribs.

Could someone advise on an appropriate wood to get a sweeter taste?

Cherry is a good choice, also you could add more sugar to your rub.

I've been using hickory and apple.

Could using too much hickory affect it?

I think I have pear, plum, apple, hickory and whisky barrel chunks.

I also have some maple chips.

I know zippy12 zippy12 has really been bragging maple up lately. I might have to cut a few branches off of one of my trees and try it.

Ive done a mix of maple and cherry and really like it. About 50/50 mix of chunks in my drum. Love the flavor the maple gives and really like the color the cherry gives. Ive only done this with pork ribs.

Sugar maple or cherry is what I would try for more sweetness in the smoke flavor.
