    Hi all, I just joined the forum even though I've had a Cookshack for 13 years. I grew up in Texas and in and out of the backdoor's of B-B-Q joints since I could be carried. First I ever remember was Sammy's in Fort Worth, Texas.....but I digress. WOOD!!!!!!!! Since being in the Northeast I have come across the Shagbark Hickory. It is milder that the Texas hickory and in fact my family has me ship them this wood. They say, and I agree, that the Shagbark is a much better smoking wood that the other types of hickory. Any comments????/

    What an education we get here?

    Never heard of that stuff?

    It is probably the stuff in Todds dust that I love so much?  LOL

    Good luck and good smoking.
