just trying to get a idea of what everyone chooses for their pork? I love the apple wood the best followed up by cherry...(and for poultry plum wood but thats a different thread)
I like a pecan and cherry mix
hummm pecan wood? I'm acctually allergic to nuts has anyone with nut allergies tried the nut woods?
I like Cherry mixed with maple. I use hickory also
I go with what a lot of folks go with it seems.  I like a 50/50 mix of pecan and cherry, or pecan and apple.  I did up some pork tenderloins last night, and used some oak.  This was the first time I used oak.  It imbued a very smokey flavor.  The smoke flavor overpowered the rub.  I think that in the future I will save oak for beef, and go back to my pecan/fruit wood mix for pork.
I would definitely have to say apple wood. Followed by an apple/hickory mix.  I live in central WA so apple wood is readily available to me.
