I will be attempting my first smoking BBQ this long weekend (with a trial run) So, while talking to a co-worker here on LI, he put me in touch with one of your members. Start-up info has been great. Thought I would say hello and get your votes on which flavor wood to use on the ribs I plan on cooking.....errr... smoking. Apple or Hickory? I have kids who enjoy the 'chinese' version, so, someone suggested apple to avoid any potentially bad noobie experiences with Dad's first smoke attempt.

I'll try to use the polling option...

Welcome to the group.

Do a mix of apple and hickory. Get the fire going so that you have clean light blue smoke. Thick white smoke will be bitter and dark black smoke is toxic. As you learn, the less smoke the better.

What are you smoking your ribs on?

I agree with Robert, but if apple is not available just hickory will work fine. I use mesquite on beef or chicken,but have used pecan on everything, it's very simular to hickory. We don't have a lot of apple and cherry out west,but we have a lot of mesquite and pecan.

Welcome! I agree, try a mix of both. Stay away from mesquite, too heavy of smoke for you northerners, hell to heavy of smoke for me! LOL

if you have a Bandera, warm your wood on the firebox lid to cut down on the bad smoke. you want sweet blue.

hope it turns out great for ya!

Welcome to the group.

Stick with the hickory on ribs.

Apple is lighter. Try that on turkey breast or chicken.

Glad you found us!!

Welcome aboard, this group is great and chock full of great information. I cannot argue with the masses, Hickory and Apple are great for pork. Some preferences will vary but if you go with either or a mixture of both you will be fine.

Good luck. Let us know how it went.

Jutsuka, Welcome don't fret and run away if these guys give you any crap. The Grand PooBah will take care of you Long Island boys---unless you pour cement but that's another story.

Use the mixture of the two, should be fine. Next time out, try some pecan, you will love the results. Close to hickory in flavor, but a little bit lighter. I use pecan for everything but beef....it needs mesquite.

THAT'S spoken like a true Texan! Myself, mesquite is a little strong for my taste, I'm more of a hickory and sugar maple flavored type of guy.
