I was siting here pondering what wood to smoke with and wondered what everyone else has a preference for. I use lots of oak, maple and hickory--occasially some apple and pecan. What are some of your favoites?
I cook everything with Oak and Cherry at ratio of about 60/40. I will use a little Hickory if I can con someone into busting it for me. I can handle the Oak and Cherry myself but even that is getting a little tiring.
Keep on smokin.

My first choice is always Pecan. Goes great with anything and is not over powering. Second would be Oak. Why? That is what I like and that's what I get for free!!!! I''ve been known to throw some mesquite into the fire during the cook too... Esp. when cooking beef!
