Free wood. Very Happy

Honestly I lean toward hickory, but cherry, apple, and maple get into the mix depending on what I'm cooking and the flavor I'm looking for.

I'd like to try peach and pecan also but haven't gotten to it yet. So many woods, so little time.

My best go to wood is almond. Dave found almond at a wood place and started using it. The smoke is mild and burns hot.

Apple is my favorite and I will also use an Apple and Cherry mix. I really enjoy using Pecan for poultry Smile

Hickory, I like it and it is the easiest to get....chips in any grocery store and chunks in Lowes/Home Depot or WalMart and split logs in several firewood places ( or I can cut my own off of my property if I am feeling frisky Smile )
I also like to mix it up with pecan, cherry and some oak when I can get them.

Hickory is my primary choice. I'll also throw in mulberry to spike the temp if it is running a little low. I've had some really good results with that blend, but don't have a ton of it available to use on a regular basis.

Cherry is my go to wood. I do mix it with Hickory, Oak, Pecan and Maple. I get it from a buddy who has an orchard not far from me. It produces the most consistent flavor and ring out of all the woods I've tried.
