Last weekend I did something different. Instead of using just hickory, I mixed an equal amount of pecan and hickory together with pretty good results according to the family. I also have some oak and alder ready to go. I'm open to suggestions. Planning on a rack of spares, and three or four Jimmy Dean fatties tomorrow and would love to know what some of you have used in the past. I LOVE hickory, but the pecan was a nice subtle difference to the flavor. I'm thinking of just oak, but hate to give up my beloved hickory.
