You can't go wrong with Apple, but I've used Maple and Cherry

I like cherry, but limit it to 1 1/2 - 2 rows of sawdust in the AMNS cold smoker. Same for smoking Manchego, Oaxaca, and mozzarella cheeses. Cheddar can take a little more smoke; these are my experiences and not to be considered as fact. Whas I through?.

Now I would recommand using apple and cherry. Those are the two woods that I use almost all the time.
