It's not like hickory to me. Its mild and nutty, too mild to be used on beef. Wonderful on pork.

Pecan is definitely lighter than hickory. Do try the unseasoned chicken breast test. I use mesquite for beef and pecan for pork and chicken with great results.

Pecan makes the whole neighborhood happy. The aroma coming off the cooker along with the mild nutty/sweet flavor imparted on the food is one of a kind. Nothing better IMO.

Well maybe apple and cherry.

I have 4 large pecan trees in my yard so pecan is my go to wood for obvious reasons. It is definitely milder than hickory.

I have tried both. Hickory is without question stronger than hickory. I won't even use hickory because it's too strong.

I have a huge 100 yr old(i think) pecan tree on my property. It's huge. It is kinda self pruning, so a few times a year it provides me with large enough branches to cut into chunks and dry. I love using it, and do find it less strong than hickory.

As a side note, probably the best hamburgers I have ever had came from cooking them over a bed of 100% pecan coals in my firepit. I had burned up a big branch in my firepit, saw the awesome coals, and decided to make good use of them. Man, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

I currently have 3 stacks of pecan wood and love it. I also have oak and hickory, but after I use those stacks, I'll be using pecan exclusively. It dries well, burns great, smells wonderful and puts out perfect Q.
Everything can be smoked (successfully) with pecan!

Pecan is my wood of choice, assuming I can fine it. Great flavor, slight LIGHTER flavor the hickory.

I have no idea what Vision said here as he's been on my ignore list for a while.

And for good reason.

I've used it with pork and beef ribs. If you don't like it, I'll be glad to take it off your hands.

But I don't think that will happen.

Personally I think Hickory is much milder than hickory and I use them both.

I agree with most comments here and Pecan to me seems milder than Hickory and I am glad to see that it is not just me that thinks the smell of Pecan burning is a religious experience.
