Here is the different woods they carry.
apple, apricot, cherry, hickory, oak, pecan
Pecan to me is a milder and sweeter version of hickory. It makes great poultry, pork, beef and KILLER smoked bacon! I love oak and mesquite too but pecan is the one that I would want if I had to be stranded on an island with only one kind of tree.
