    So I'm, planning my next rib smoke (baby backs) & I'm considering using some peach wood I recently got on sale. So far with the ribs, I've been going back & forth between hickory on a couple of smokes & a mixture of cherry & apple on a couple of others. Last time out it was hickory. I'm thinking this time I don't want to do a mixture, but want to use a single, fruit wood. I do still have apple & cherry on hand, but this unopened bag of peach has me curious. As a one-wood smoking option what are the general opinions of the peach (or the apple & cherry)?

    Thanks TW

    I am a hickory or pecan man for my ribs, however, any of the fruit woods work well.  I've never used peach and would be interested in how the finished product turned out.

    I like peach and use it often. Nice mild sweet smoke. I love the taste and aroma!  I like great color. I used them separately, paired and in combination. I think the combination of hickory, peach and then finish with cherry is hard to beat. But that's me.

    That's what I needed to hear.

    I'm going with the peach this time.

    Thanks everyone.
