Oak
 
I've always used hickory but have a line on some good oak. Choice between red or white. Looking for input.

I've been using red oak recently, it's mild and I like it.

Any oak is good smoking wood! If you can find some post oak, jump on it.

dkryzer 02-04-2013 06:58 PM

I've had great success with both. In my opinion Red is a little milder.

What about pin oak?
Sorry I don't want ti hijack.

Pin Oak I's also known as Swamp Oak since it tends to grow in wt environments. I've never tried it for smoking.

Pin oak and 5 others have the local name "swamp oak" depending on where you live, just as an FYI here's a link that names all of them-

oak is good. "red oak" can cover a lot of oak species.
so get what you can. i use pecan or oak.

I prefer white oak, haven't had much luck with red oak., All the red that I have gotten was to resinous for my taste.

Either one is good. I prefer white oak but would never turn down any red.

I like red. Whites good too though, but I like red better.

I Oak has become my go to wood. Doesnt seem to mater red or white as long as its well seasoned.
