I used a hickory/mulberry blend on some poultry recently, trying to go light on the hickory. It just didn't quite turn out the way I wanted. Gotta get me some cherry and give that a whirl. Fortunately, I got some big hunks of oak sitting around waiting to be split. Looks like I got wood for the weekend!
I think you will be pleased with using oak. It can be vastly different in taste, depending on how well it is seasoned, so make sure your using well seasoned.
Good luck finding the flavor you are looking for.
