    I am a newbie to all of this so I had a simple but maybe dumb question.

    Do you have a favorite wood chip brand for an electronic smoker and why?
  2. I don't run an elec smoker ...but I like peach or apple for pork and poultry and oak for beef.
  3. It depends what I am smoking. [I use a charcoal barrell offset but type of smoker is independent of wood used].

    For pork, I use cherry as well as apple.  For beef, mesquite.  I also like whiskey flavour [made from whisjey barrels].
