Hello from RI.

Smoked clams.Unless you're shucking them not much point in smoking them.If you're shucking then ya you can certainly get some smoke flavor on them.Type of wood is really up to you and how strong a flavor you want,I'd start with a fruitwood like apple and see if you like it and go from there.Don't overcook them which easy to do out of the shell.I generally do them over indirect heat on my gas grill with a smoke tube.
