I pretty much exclusively use 1 part hickory, 1 part apple and 2 parts cherry on my chicken and pork smokes. I love the taste the hardwood hickory imparts and the color the cherry puts out. I always start with Cherry and hickory then go over to apple and cherry to finish.
When smoking brisket I use pecan and oak.
