Which smoke for your butt?
« on: July 28, 2012, 06:56:08 am »
Interesting title to this thread I know but I am curious what type of wood is being used and for how long people here are putting smoke to their butts?

thanks.

Pretty much whatever I have on hand that I'm in the mood to try.  Pork takes most woods well.

I started by furst butts bu rotating apple and hickory as I didn't want it too strong.
I have since changed to all hickory and I can't tell a difference.
Roll smoke for 4 hours

Hickory is my go to for everything. However Whiskey Oak was recently tried and wasn't bad. 4 hours on a big butt

I use hickory for four hours.
I too wish we could get peach for the Bradley.
I live very close to many peach orchards and i really love pruning time  :)
