Default Smoking the Bird

I am smoking a turkey tomorrow for Easter. I found a great rub recipe in a book by Paul Kirk. I was wondering what kind of wood is reccomended for smoking "the Bird"?

I'm as big a fan of cherry as there is, but don't use it on birds. For poultry I prefer apple with mabe a little hickory or pecan in the mix.

Apple, a little hickory, and maple should do you just fine.

I add hickory to the mix when doing turkeys too, since the meat is so much thicker than chicken. I'm a big brine fan too & that seems to help me out also.
