Pecan. It's the only wood I now use. Perfect on anything and everything.

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.

I've been a big fan of Peach with a bit of hickory thrown in.  Sometimes I'll go all peach with a bit of apple.
