I'm a pecan fan, myself, but I'm going to get some cherry and try that soon. So many people talk about it, I want to check it out.

My vote, though is pecan, because that's what I know. And it's delicious.

I like all of the woods you posted, but only picking one, it's Oak. No doubt.

A wise man once said that all wood is good for smoking as long as it's cherry.

True dat.

I burn white and red oak in the fireplace and cut some into chunks each year for the smoker. Oak for brisket with some pecan and hickory for pork with a little peach. If only one to use though it would be hickory.

Like many others said, different faves for different applications. But if I had to pick just one for all purpose, gimme the hickory.

I am going to pile on here and say hickory. I do prefer pecan for bird, but I can get the same effect (almost) by using less hickory.

Cherry here. Love the smell coming off any cook. Still need to try pecan. Wasn't impressed with apple but it may be old.

Pecan is from the hickory family, so hickory will be 2 for 1
