    I like all the fruit woods best - apple, cherry, peach and grape.

    While I'm fairly new on this forum, I used to lurk on the old forum many, many years ago.  Do y'all remember when guava wood was all the rage?  I know I had some shipped in from Hawaii.  Is anyone here still using guava?

    You don't add wood blocks during smoking cooks?

    Interesting choices above. Pulled pork Mecca is NC. I've never heard of any of the Q joints there using anything other than hickory and/or oak. Probably because that's what's most readily available. I'm partial to hickory myself. Oak's okay, but hickory has more punch without overpowering the pork. I think I used pecan once (a relative of hickory), but it's hard to find here. I don't recall ever using any of the others mentioned, not for pulled pork anyway.

    Guess I'm gonna have to open my bag of Cowboy. =)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Using a knife is cheating.

    You`re right, but my only goal is whats in the bag. The longer I spend futzing with that $%#+
    String, the less time I have to cook.
