In the Marysville/Yuba City peach wood is plentiful. It gives pork and chicken a nice sweet flavor. Similar to apple.

For brisket I mix it 75% peach 25% pecan or hickory.

Plum is good, and you should be able to score some almond too which is awesome for everything.

I use peach wood all of the time. I use oak to get nice hot coals then throw in small pieces of peach for smoke. You are very close---let me know if you need oak---I have several connections. I am not sure what you are cooking withfor equipment.

I can't vouch for peach with beef. But it's great on pork and poultry. You can't go wrong there.

Fruit wood is great with pork and chicken. All the woods you named are good for smoking (although I've actually never used walnut). You're a blessed man to have a source like that! Get to smoking and post some pictures. Can't wait to see 'em.

It's horrible! Dont believe these guys! You're being set-up. Think of it; peaches and
BBQ!!! Give me your address. I'll drive right over with the truck and help you dispose
of it carefully. It's toxic, you know! Very dangerous. Matter of fact, if I were you,
I'd stay 20' away from it. Let the professionals (ala. me) dispose of it for you.

Being a Bretheren n all, I'll only charge you for the gasoline...

How far is Marysville CA from Atlanta GA?... Shouldn't be much.

I love Mesquite and Hickory for beef.

And then... Peach or Cherry for everything else!

Great smoking wood.

I second that... (and if he takes you up on the offer, got a friend who's fairly local to you who would be more than glad to grab that toxic stuff off your hands too!)

I use a lot of peach and it has become my favorite. I will mix it with apple for the best pulled pork, ribs or chicken that I have ever made. I have used it with beef and it's good, but I prefer oak or hickory if I am doing beef ribs or steak. Peach is also great with lamb.
