Re: What Kinds of Wood for Smoking? 
We recently tried combining some apple and maple wood to smoke some pork belly. Awesome!

I agree on Apple and Hickory. I have used Maple with Pork, it was ok.

Also, try dried grapevines with fish. My local winery will offer them for free when pruning their vineyards.

White grapes give a nice flavor to trout. Red grape added to hickory wood adds a nice flavor to beef

Grapevine can also be added to the grill as well

We actually got to try the red grapes and hickory to BBQ some ribs. It was just awesome! Thanks so much for sharing about it.

Is that the leaves or did you include some of the fruit too?

Re: What Kinds of Wood for Smoking? 
Hey Alban,
Woods like Apple have a mellow flavor and won't give you much in a short amount of time but if you’re cooking for a while then it has time to add that mellow flavor without overpowering the food. And Woods like mesquite are very strong and while it gives you a good flavor quickly that flavor will become bitter fast so don't use too much or for too long.. 

Re: What Kinds of Wood for Smoking? 
I have been smoking all kinds of things for over 20 years. You can use almost any kind of wood or even a blend of woods. I have used Hickory, Apple, Pear, Peach, Cherry, Orange, And even lemon, I like a blend of Hickory & Cherry. It gives pork a sweet taste with a little bite at the end.
So mix them up and try them all! You can look on line or even Bass Pro Shops have a good bunch. I have even used crabapple from my back yard.
