hey guys, which wood do you choose for your grill?
I assume you're asking about smoke wood, not a grill made out of wood. For me, it depends on what I'm smoking. Anything specific?
Alder for salmon. Lighter fruit woods or maple for poultry & some cuts of pork. Other pork cuts like bacon and ham call for hickory, pecan, or cherry. For beef you can get into the heavier stuff like hickory or sometimes mesquite; many people like oak also. Once you get an idea of what you like, you can start to mix it up.
