Default What's your favorite wood mix?

For those that cook all 4 categories on one smoker?

With my next setup I plan on using chicken only on my green egg and butt/brisket/st Louis on the new smoker. Just curious, I've only been doing hickory but want to change to pecan. However many say pecan is too light for brisket.

Just curious what many of you use in this situation.

I think oak is hard to beat as a go to wood for everything.

Depends on the smoker. Pellets would be strictly hickory. I use a mix of pecan and cherry (or peach) on my kamado. I solely use pecan on my stick burner.

Oak + fruit wood is my stand by for everything, especially if I'm cooking mixed meats. I'm in apple country, so usually it's oak and apple, but I also really like cherry.
