Default Woods for Smokin'

There probably is a thread or list here somewhere, but I'm lazy and don't want to search for it. So, here goes. I bought an Old Country Pecos smoker, and have used it a few times. I used regular charcoal, and I was continually feeding this beast. I tried lump in a basket, better results, better heat control, and used less coal. I'm wanting to try stick wood. What woods are acceptable to use? I have access to oaks, pecan, hickory, and a lot of others. I know not to use pines etc, but unsure about some others. Are all hardwoods OK to use? What not to use? Thanks...you guys ROCK!

Honestly, it doesn't really matter what we all tell you. Experiment with different woods and see what YOU like. Bottom line is everyone Q is different, what I like you may not. Get out there and try a few woods and stick with what you think gives the meat the best flavor.

Pretty much anything that is a hardwood(Oak, Hickory, Alder, Mesquite, Maple..etc) or a Fruit wood (anything that bears fruit like cherry, apple, pear, plum, perrsimon, etc...even grape vines are good).

One thing to keep in mind is you'll probably be better off in the long run using something that is readily available in your area - hopefully you like whatever that is! I think in GA you likely have a wide variety of options available.

If you are constantly feeding it, try oak. It's a mild smoke and the best and longer heat for your smoker next to hickory.
