Thinking of trying peach wood for chicken. Any thoughts.

I LOVE peach wood. It's great on ribs and chicken. I believe Myron Mixon of Jack's Old South uses peach exclusively because, he says, it is impossible to oversmoke anything with it. It has a wonderful, sweet perfumey smoke. Go for it!

Do you have any sources for some seasoned wood.

Peach wood is good to smoke with. Mild flavor.

I've gotten peach chunks from Chigger Creek (http://chiggercreekproducts.net/), but currently have some sticks from Meadow Creek (http://www.meadowcreekbbq.com)that I got when I picked up Large Marge. Really nice.

butts sent my wife some peach chunks in the last trading round... and some peach cider.... we plan on trying both shortly. I'm thinkin the peach will ROCK on Chicken.

That's also our thought. I would try some of the peach cider in a finishing sauce should give a nice flavor.

I burn peach, plum, persimmon, apple, and pear regularly, but while I can smell the difference during the burn, I cannot taste the difference between these woods. If a particular wood such as apple is abundant in your area, then I would save myself the trouble and burn apple. Also, don't you guys have a lot of cherry up there?

We have alot of apple and cherry in this area. We just cut down 6 hedge row wild cherry trees, they had to be at least 40 + years old. Just looking for something new to try in the off season.
