     For ribs and most all pork, I prefer pecan wood in whichever form I am using.

    I use to use traeger hickory pellets at work. At home I usually use pitmasters choice blend. The last time I ordered from Todd I got some cherry and pecan pellets as well but I haven't tried them yet...

    My go to wood for pork and poultry is kiawe. I use ohia for beef and guava, or a guava blend, with fish... ;)

    Usually Apple or Hickory seems to be preferred by most in my family.

    Oak is pretty much the go to for me as I have a whole stack of splits. Hickory has been getting a decent amount of use around here lately also.

    Never seen these woods in the few places I frequent here in Eastern Washington....wonder if they are available someplace mail order? The Boss & I would love to try some "regional" stuff...
    Sad to say I have never seen Oak anyplace neither.....going to town today to get my meds that they could not fill yesterday, going to take a look. Truly glad that there are online retailers....we do a lot of mail order stuff....
