Apple is a very mild smoke compared to Hickory, so I'd go with 3:1 Apple:Hickory to keep the latter from drowning out the former...

Cheers!

You may find Apple quite addicting. I use it on virtually every cook as my "base", and add smaller amounts of wood like Wild Cherry, Sugar Maple, Alder, Oak or Hickory...

Cheers!

Apple wood is awesome! I love it. For the first year or so that I smoked, I used nothing but apple from area orchards. Great smoke flavor, but hard to over smoke with it.

+1 on apple being good.

I have been enjoying Cherry lately.

I like pecan a lot too.


hickory is ok, but that is what all restaurants seem to use, so I don't use it much. As a result, I tend to mix hickory with something else when I use it, to make it a more unique flavor.

I tried mesquite for the first time the other day, anyone want any? I can't see using that too often.

I love to smoke all of my meats with half white oak and the other half can either be apple or cherry. Apple or cherry all on its own just doesn't provide enough smoke flavor for me.

Since that is what you have i would 3:1 apple/hickory which is what was covered already.
Honestly my favorite combo is cherry/oak when i have those woods. And oak is my favorite single wood for everything.
