Hickory I use for many meats and fish
Apple is my go to for Pork
Cherry and poultry always works for me
I would like to get some peach and pecan yet, to give them a try. I never seem to get to peach before it is all gone.
What are your thoughts on wood vs meat combinations?
Interesting. Generally, I use hickory for pork, beef, and anything else that can stand strong smoke. I use cherry and/or apple for poultry and things that can be over-smoked. Sometimes I combine them. Once in a while, I use oak; it's good for anything. To each his own as long as you are pleased with your results. I remember my first turkey breast smoked with several chunks of hickory.
