ACAIA Same family as mesquite, but more mild. Similar to Kiawe from Hawaii. Very hot burning wood.
ALDER Very delicate with a hint of sweetness. Great for smoking salmon, fish, poultry, and light game meat.
ALMOND A nutty, sweet smoke flavor. Light ash. Great all around wood. Good with all meats.
APPLE Slightly sweet but with a more dense, fruity smoke flavor. Good with all types of meat, poultry, seafood, and game birds. Especially good to smoke ham. May turn the skin on poultry dark.
APRICOT (SOLD OUT) Mild with a subtle sweet flavor. Smells like apricots when cooking. Good with all meats, poultry, and seafood.
CHERRY Rich flavor, but not as sweet as apple. Can be used with all meats, pork, and poultry.
GRAPE Aromatic, rich and fruity. Provides a lot of smoke. Use with all meats.
HICKORY Pungent and smokey, with a hint of bacon flavor. Best with beef, pork, ribs, and ham. Hot, clean burning wood. "King of the smoking woods."
MAPLE Smokey, mellow, and lighty sweet. Maple is great to use with beef, pork, game birds, poultry, cheese, and vegetables. Especially sensational with pork roasts.
MESQUITE One of the hottest burning woods. It is somewhat more sweet than hickory with an earthy, honey flavor. Compliments meats such as beef, pork, lamb, and duck. The bark may cause a bitter taste. It is best to remove before smoking.
NECTARINE Slightly fruity, somewhat rich flavor. Very good with poultry, games birds, and pork.
OAK Red oak is similar to mesquite, but with less flavoring. White oak is the most mild, mainly used for heat as it contains no flavor. Both burn very hot, "Queen of the smoking woods."
OLIVE Smoke flavor is similar to mesquite, but distinctly lighter. Delicious with poultry and pork.
ORANGE Citrus, medium smoke flavor. Contains a hint of fruit flavor. Excellent with beef, pork, poultry, and other mild meats.
PEACH Slightly fruity, woodsy flavor. Very good with poultry, game birds, and pork.
PECAN Delicate pecan flavor. Similar to hickory, but not as strong. Pecan is an all around superior wood. Use with all meats, turkey, and cheese.
PLUM A medium-hard burning wood which will provide more heat than many other fruit woods. Has a rich, fruity flavor. Can be used with all meats and poultry.
