i'm a cheap farker & tend to mostly use free wood. I used to use peach a lot because i hunted a friend's property & he had a peach orchard. Then i started hunting a friend's place in SW Arkansas and we had hickory available so mostly used it. Now i'm using mostly pecan because my son brought me a bunch that he cut from a fallen tree at his grandmother's house.
Wampus sent me some cherry wood a couple of years ago & i used it sparingly because it was such incredible wood (and was very sad when i used the last of it).
If i had my druthers, i'd smoke with cherry all the time, if no cherry then pecan or peach with hickory close behind.
