Smoking Wood

Recently found some cherry wood at the price cutter and smoked a turkey breast with it. Still not sure if I like it better than apple.

Mesquite is my "go to" for pork, and I like it on beef.

Apple has grown on me for everything but pork.

Does cherry work well by itself on anything, in your opinion, or should I mix it with something else for the best flavor?

Hickory seems pretty harsh to me, and I don't use it on anything but pork.

Mind is open, have much to learn.

I love cherry, and my neighbors agree... I find that a wet heavy cherry smoke for the first two hours provides a sweet ring, and a nice flavor. Most cant tell it from apple though. Skroo them!!! But I like to go hot for 45 minutes of wet heavy smoke, then cooler for the next hour and a quarter. After that, the wood is done (rather expensive), but the flavor is there to stay, and I go with a cool, wet, pure cowboy charcoal for the remainder of the burn. But I'm growing more fond of cherry.

Have you tried sassafras? Another weekend project if you have not...

Hickory is my favorite...on all meats. Followed by apple.
To me, cherry gives the meat a flavor too close to soured milk. Maybe it was just a bad bag o' wood chunks, but I wasn't a fan.

Acacia is similar to mesquite but not as strong. This wood burns very hot and should be used in small amounts or for limited amounts of time.

Alder has a light flavor that works well with fish and poultry. Indigenous to the northwestern United States, it is the traditional wood for smoking Salmon.

Almond give a nutty, sweet flavor that is good with all meats. Almond is similar to Pecan.

Apple is very mild in flavor and gives food a sweetness. This is good with poultry and pork. Apple will discolor chicken skin (turns in dark brown).

Apricot is great for poultry and pork. This wood is similar to hickory but is sweeter and milder in flavor.

Ash has a light, unique flavor. This wood burns fast.

Black Walnut has a heavy flavor that should probably be mixed with other wood because of the bitter taste it can impart.

Birch has a similar flavor to maple. This wood is good with pork and poultry.

Cherry has a sweet, mild flavor that goes great with virtually everything. This is one of the most popular woods for smoking.

Chokecherry has a bitter flavor and should only be used in small amounts for short period of times.

Citrus woods like lemon or orange have a moderate smoke that gives a light fruity flavor that is more mild than apple or cherry.

Cottonwood is very mild in flavor and should be used with stronger flavored woods. Avoid green wood.

Crabapple is very similar to apple wood and can be used interchangeably.

Fruit, like apple, apricot or cherry, fruit wood gives off a sweet, mild flavor that is good with poultry or ham.

Grapefruit is a mild wood that produces a good, smoky flavor. A good wood for any meat.

Grapevines make a lot of tart smoke and gives a fruity but sometimes heavy flavor. Use it sparingly with poultry or lamb.

Hickory adds a strong flavor to meats, so be careful not to use to excessively. Itís good with beef and lamb.

Lemon is a mild wood that produces a good, smoky flavor. A good wood for any meat.

Lilac produces a good supply of mild, sweet smoke. A popular wood for smoked cheese, but also good for poultry and pork.

Maple, like fruit wood gives a sweet flavor that is excellent with poultry and ham.

Mesquite has been very popular of late and is good for grilling, but since it burns hot and fast, it's not recommended for long barbecues. Mesquite is probably the strongest flavored wood; hence its popularity with restaurant grills that cook meat for a very short time.

Mulberry is sweet and very similar to apple.

Nectarine is great for poultry and pork. This wood is similar to hickory but is sweeter and milder in flavor.

Oak is strong but not overpowering and is a very good wood for beef or lamb. Oak is probably the most versatile of the hard woods.

Orange is a mild wood that produces a good, smoky flavor. A good wood for any meat.

Peach is great for poultry and pork. This wood is similar to hickory but is sweeter and milder in flavor.

Pear is similar to apple and produces a sweet, mild flavor.

Pecan burns cool and provides a delicate flavor. Itís a much subtler version of hickory.

Plum is great for poultry and pork. This wood is similar to hickory but is sweeter and milder in flavor.

Walnut has a heavy, smoky flavor and should be mixed with milder flavored woods.

I was about to be incredibly impressed a Dolt fan knew so much about his smoking woods. Then I started to realize the list was alphabetical, then I remembered you were a Dolt fan. Then I read this last line.

I do bet you make a dope BBQ Fish taco though Gadzooks. Mmmm Mmmm...KC Masterpiece and some chunk albacore on a flour shell. HEAVEN.

I'm finding my favorites to be oak, apple and hickory. I like oak/hickory with a pork butt, oak/apple with a brisket or ribs. With chicken I like apple or any other fruit wood. I get plum and apricot on occasion. Probably not much different from apple but fun to experiment.

I'd say oak is way underrated. Maybe because it sounds dull. But it does the job, especially with beef.

I'd suggest mixing it with oak next time you do a brisket.
