So being from Texas, mesquite is about as easy to come by as tumbleweeds and trucks. I've grown up eating everything smoked primarily with mesquite, at least if it was smoked in my family. Well, today I'm branching out (no pun intended..lol) and trying hickory.
I've got some Mothers Day baby backs on the egg as we speak and I can definitely tell the smell difference. I hope it tastes as good as it smells. If this turns out well, I will be trying out more wood flavors and combinations.
I know the popular woods:
What are some good parings? I guess I need to try out several things on each wood type to see what I like best.
Is there a distinctive fruit flavor out of the apple/cherry woods?
Thanks all, and Happy Mom's day!
