I would never use pine in any of my smokers. It will leave a nasty taste on your food and in your smoker.
Pine wood contains benzene a known cancer producing agent.
Learned that in firefighters school. That is why we have to wear air packs when fighting scrap lumber fires.
Any hardwoods should be ok. I prefer hickory when doing cold smokes on cheese, sausage.
