I use both red oak and live oak, that I cut locally, and season in my yard.

I have found that the red oak needs a longer seasoning than the live oak, which is a white oak.

Red oak, IMO, seems to cook more like hickory. It seems to be a stronger smoke. The live oak seems to be more subtle -- more like pecan.
