What is your favorite wood to use for cooking meat. I just got my smoker finished, the cooking box is 4' long and is made from a piece of 18" pipe the fire box is mounted lower and is 16" pipe and 24" long.

Wild cherry is my favorite. I have lots of pecan, but the smoky flavor from it is a little too strong for my taste. Sometimes, I'll mix different woods for a unique flavor.

birch, but i make sure there's no bark left on it (creosoty taste). I just use wood for the first 1/2 hour, then just keep about 120 degrees of heat
til ir dries out real well. Try making jerky from hamburger with soy sauce/hot pepper - Waahoo!!

That smoker sounds like it would make a good steam box for bending wood too :)

I perfer pecan, but mostly I use seasoned live oak cause I have plenty of it and pecan and hickory is hard to get down here in South Florida.

That live oak is some more hard to split.I'd rather bust a truck load of elm and gum that a wheelbarrow load of live oak.

Try Barbequen' on the internet.If your a beginner or a pro,there is some good stuff on there.

I like a hint of hickory,and let the fat cook back in the coals.Do it slow and low.

Hickory or apple are my favorites, but the secret is not to over do it, it don't take as much smoke as most people think.
