Been smoking for a long time. Avid Hickory wood user for all most every thing. I use Apple wood when I smoke bacon. Today, I scored a full trailer of apple wood, logs from 20 inches or so down to 4 inches. I get to go back tomorrow for another trailer full. Up until now, I have been begging and buying(at a price) for apple wood. Now I have a cord of apple, 1/2 cord of hickory and 6 cords of oak. I have never smoked with oak before, my friend loves it, says he gets good penetration and color. I know some people use pecan and other fruit/nut woods. My question to all is this, what wood is your favorite, why so and what you smoking?
