Orange wood chips?

I was at the Bass Pro Shops in Myrtle Beach and saw orange wood chips.  I'd like to hear some uses.  Common sense lends it to seafood and maybe some Korean barbeque.  Thanks.

    I used orange chips tonight with chicken.  I've also used it with pork loin and butts.  Subtle, sweet smoke.  It's becoming a new favorite.

    I tried chucking fresh orange peels once and the smoke was pretty good.

    Very mild IMO.  I could hardly detect it in the meat.

    I bought a bag of orange chunks @ bass pro. Haven't used any yet though.

    Great idea.  I've been wanting to do duck on the grill.  Been sorta nervous because my in-laws almost blew their house up doing one on a gas grill years ago.My father-in-law said his grill was, "the worlds biggest zippo lighter." 
  • Orange is like a mix of apple and hickory. It's sweet like apple, but stronger then apple. It's delicious
