The Red Oak and Pin Oak in Alabama don't smell so great when I split them. The White Oak smells sweet like Hickory and makes a great bed of coals.

Yes.

If you are smoking tri-tips, then red. Otherwise white is o.k.

If red oak is not good enough for whiskey barrels, then it is not good enough for smoking. That being said, I am now convinced that there are some regional reds that would be okay. We just don't have them here.

I have tried red oak it was fine but white oak is my go to wood, a lot milder smoke than the hickory. In my pit the oak burns a little hotter (10 degrees hotter) than the hickory.

I think you should bring some over to the new ranch and input some of it in my garage....

In my neck of the woods it's about all we have (unless you're lucky enough to find bitternut hickory). I've used red oak often and like it.

I use both red oak and live oak, that I cut locally, and season in my yard.

I have found that the red oak needs a longer seasoning than the live oak, which is a white oak.

Red oak, IMO, seems to cook more like hickory. It seems to be a stronger smoke. The live oak seems to be more subtle -- more like pecan.
