I cooked almost exclusively with pecan when I lived in Louisiana. It is my favorite. I also like oak quite a bit. I have used red, white, and live oak with no problem. I use cherry of poultry when I can get it. Hickory is ok and I use mesquite in moderation mixed with oak.

Personally, I have never had good results with apple. Last year I found I guy on Craigslist who was cutting down 3 pear trees and I loaded up. They have been curing for a year and I will cook with them in the spring.

One time I got my hands on some persimmon and I recall being happy with it as well.

Avoid citrus for smoking. It is OK for grilling.
