Wood chip choice in smoker ??

Recommended Posts

iv have just purchased a new smoker, and only ever previously used basic smoker shavings in my old smoker.

 

Is anyone clued up with the variations of wood chips available and what types of foods they are best suited for ?

 

what chips do you find best for fish ? chicken ? pork ribs etc ?

 

mmmm......pork ribs.

 

 

cheers,

Nup as ive been lazy and buying redgum sawdust from the local.

 

Have some nice seasoned olive & plum wood ive been meaing to drop the saw thru but havnt got there yet. Both smell pretty good when they go up the chimney!

 

Apparently apple & cherry are rather nice too.

 

Anyways im just using a cheapie stainless box smoker & STs (and tomatoes to make bbq sauce)!

I use whatever I can get my hands on. Hickory and mesquite and great. I was using a mix of Aussie hardwoods from a friend who did some woodworking but am almost all out. At the moment I am using passionfruit vine as mine has died and I've got a heap. It is nice with both fish and meat. I would like to try rose canes next as I have a heap of roses and the wood is meant to give a similar flavour to apple wood.
