    Shadbark Hickory is fine for smoking. Has almost identical flavor to regular hickory.

    The tree may be different, but the flavour will be very similar.
  9. Shagbark is wonderful stuff, I think Swamp is a bit better.
    They're the only two I have to choose from on my place, both are in short supply, but thank God there's more Swamp because I need the Shagbark for the nuts.
    Tons of Cherry and Maple.
