Default Local wood

Got a friend that can hook me up with local wood. He supplies some bakerys in the area with Hedge, which I understand make allot of heat. Probably good for finishing up foiled stuff. Not sure if it would add bad or good taste. He can also get me Oak and Hackberry, which I think would be goo for smoking open meat.

Anybody have any experience with any of these and what was the results?

Oak would be good but I've never heard of anyone using hedge or hackberry.

HawgSniffer Man,
Here is a list off my web site. I do see Hackberry, but no Hedge. Like they say, If it is NOT on the list DO NOT USE IT. Too much good wood out there to chance it.

I thought mahogany meant you had to stay married to only one woman at a time.

No, mahogany means using only one type of wood in your smoker.

No Mahogany is what you get when your wife cuts you off for a long period of time.

I think Hackberry smoke is slightly toxic.

I use oak as my main fuel - it has great flavor, and mixes well with Hickory, Pecan or any of the fruit woods.

Hedge usually burns to hot to be a good smoking wood - great for stoves however....
