Welcome Big Nate!
You'll find a ton of different opinions on wood. It really comes down to what you like. I use a lot of different stuff depending on whats on the smoker. Alder for fish. Post Oak for brisket. Like fishing4bass I often like to hit beef with some mesquite. Love apricot on pork. My "fallback" combination is pecan and plum-- mostly out of laziness since they're at the front of my smoke woods collection. Anyway, there's a lot of options. Dig through the forums. Ask questions. Jump in and start trying things. You'll find what you like.
