One wood not addressed in the chart is juniper which is common in Arizona. A few years ago, they were selling it in chunks at Home Depot as a smokewood. It came bagged and labeled as "Aligator Smoke Wood." I tried some and got what I expected- a strong juniper berry flavor. It tasted like the meat had been injected with gin. But not in a good way. I've been marinating myself in gin for something now and most people consider me tasteless. 8)

Thanks! This helps a newbie like me a lot. I didn't even know you could smoke with a lot of these woods.

Not a competition cook. Just doing it because I love the taste/smell/creativity and enjoy feeding people!
Using a WSM to get it done!!

One word of'll want to season the wood (let it dry out) for 6 months or so. For instance, you don't want to cut branches off your orange tree and toss 'em straight into your smoker. You'll get a bitter smudge out of green wood.
