If you had to choose 1 all purpose smoking wood what would it be?
 
I am looking at getting a face cord of wood for the offset smoker and to get decent pricing on it I have to buy it by the face cord. I am wondering which wood to buy, I have been leaning to either hickory or cherry. I want to use this with all of my smoking birds, ribs, butts and brisket.

Here is the different woods they carry.
apple, apricot, cherry, hickory, oak, pecan

Pecan. Goes good with everything.

There IS no other wood before hickory...

If your talking about all around, you wont go wrong with oak

If I'm stuck to just that list it would be hickory. Otherwise I love mesquite and almond too.

Oak. High btu's, clean burning and mild smoke.

Pecan to me is a milder and sweeter version of hickory. It makes great poultry, pork, beef and KILLER smoked bacon! I love oak and mesquite too but pecan is the one that I would want if I had to be stranded on an island with only one kind of tree.

My family prefers Hickory...So, I use Hickory for the most part...See what your audience likes, not us...They have to eat it...My .02

P.S. Hickory is not MY favorite...

Hickory if I was to choose just one. Oak and Cherry closely behind. But like MeatCandy said, choose what "you" enjoy.

Hickory is first choice - oak and pecan tied for second. I love 'em all. I like the flavor of apple, but the stuff I get tends to not burn as well as hickory and there's more ash flying around.

I checked Hickory but a wood that will go with absolutely everything is Maple. You just can't go wrong with it, i've smoke everything from cheese to fish to beef to chicken and turkey to vegetables with it. The most common wood around (red maple) is all over good.

I use lots of other woods but Maple would be a good choice if you could only choose one.

Other fine choices would be oak and pecan.

I used to think cherry, but now that I have done several smokes with pecan, I'm changing my mind.
