    Gonna do a couple racks of ribs today and had a question about smoke. I have some Peach wood, which I have never tried. Should I go all in on peach or mix in a little hickory with it? If you think I should mix, what kind of ratio sounds good? Sorry for the noob questions I'm always asking, you guys are always helpful though :)

    Hey Paaco1981, first off don't be sorry for asking a question.... That's what this site is all about is helping each other. As far as your question, I've not done peach wood as it's not easy to find here. However, I've used apple & hickory on my ribs before..... But you can always do a single wood as well, like your peach or hickory. As far as ratios when mixing ya can try different ratios til ya find what ya like the best.

    Thanks Waterinhole, I'm just not sure how mild of a flavor peach might be. If it's super mild I think a little hickory mixed in might be nice, if it has a nice flavor on its own though I don't want to mess that up. Unless someone chimes in and gives me some different advice, I think I may just do all peach so I know what to expect or do with it next time.

    Hey thanks again Waterinhole, very helpful indeed. Probably be a little while but I'll try to update my thread with pics and comments on the flavor once I get things going.

    Peach is a milder smoke, along the lines of apple. I haven't mixed peach with anything when I've used it. I have used it on pork and it is really good.

    Peach is good stuff. It's a lot like apple.

    As far as mixing is concerned it's up to you.

    The higher the peach percentage is the milder your smoke is going to be.

    I say go 100% peach just to know what it tastes like without any other wood. I don't have peach but I have pear, and it's also similar to apple.
