You gotta give hickory a try. The planks are the same price. I peppered and browned this tenderloin in garlic butter first and added fresh rosemary when it went to the cooker.

Because of the longer cook times I only get 2 cooks out of the hickory, (usually 3 from the alder), but like all used planks, split them and use them for flavor wood in another cook.
