Lets see what kind of wood you guys prefer to put in your smokers....

Last week I smoked some deer tenderloins using wood from a plum tree that got damaged in an ice storm last year. Simply awesome. I've also used wood from a persimmon tree with great success.

We use pecan or hickory most of the time,would like to try some apple wood.I prefer pecan because of it's milder taste.

Mesquite is my favorite, must be a Texas tradition I'm still hanging on to.

Trees you can eat the fruit from always make great smoking wood...ie: apple, plum, cherry, and so on...hickory, pecan, and mesquite offer a more dusky and smoky flavor. I love to smoke pretty much anything, so I love em all.

For an extremely unique flavor try sassafrass.

I use smokers chips in may gas grill and I LOVE the Jack Daniels wood chips that add awesome flavor especially with using a gas grill that can lack the grilling flavor. Once the Jack has aged in the barrels they esesntially just throw them into a chipper bag'em and sell'em. Or mixing the jack daniels smoker chips with another type. I use them for anything and everything on the grill veggies, especiallt potatoes, chicken, beef, deer, fish all of it. I go through propane like crazy year round! I had to clear the snow off the grill the other day to fire it up!!!

My Dad and I do Ribs in a slow cooker smoker that he made in the back yard,we use hickory,apple and cherry  and my mother's BBQ sauce that she won't tell anyone the recipe for( I know it starts out with Catelina dressing and brown sugar ,onions,garlic,ketchup,and I think some horse radish,But she won't tell me the amounts of anything) But these ribs are awesome.
