Welcome, glad to see you try and get your feet wet.
Someone once said any wood is suitable as long as it's cherry... (Lol)
There are many good woods to smoke with, as a beginner, I found Apple was versatile and the smoke flavor was not over-powering to those who never had smoked food before.
Glad to have you on-board with us...
