    Just wondering if anyone had experimented with mixing different woods together?
  2. I do it often. Usually pecan mixed with something. Depending on the meat it might be apple or cherry. I usually let hickory run by itself.

    Yup, mixing a strong wood with a lighter wood works.
  4. I buy a 20lb bag hardwood blend ... maple, beach and birch .. I will also add some softwood dust to the mix as well

    I usually mix fruit woods with hickory or mesquite I only use mesquite for brisket though.

    Think of it as similar to whiskey - there are single-malts, and there are blends.
