Default Sausage question.

Well, the snow is finally gone, and I've decided to start this season off by smoking some Sausage. It is beef, pork, and venison in even 3rds. I'm kinda looking for some suggestions as to what wood to use. I've got hickory, oak, maple, cherry, apple, mesquite, and apricot. any ideas? thanx Dan

It's a mixture of all 3 meats, with hot peppers packed in. About 1 1/2" thick, and foot long links. got it off a pal that owns a farm.

With the 3 meats in mind, especially the venison, I'd go for a 3 to 1 mix of hickory & mesquite. Shades of New Braunfels Smokehouse in TX.
