    I live in south east Texas on thirteen acres raise  sheep and chickens.For my smoke house wood I am using pignut hickory a hard wood a little harder than pecan and a little softer than hickory..We cut four trees 1 pine,1 pignut hickory,and 2 cypress on our land and had a band saw mill come to our home and cut lumber ..we got 2600 board feet of lumber..we will use pignut and cypress on smokehouse..

    I will be posting pictures along the way and would love any suggestions along the way..
