Sorry, Ginger; it's really to big to post with the limitations of the forum.  I can make it available in a Word format, it you'd prefer.

I personally feel that PDF's are the best possible format for sharing documents. Every platform has a reader (including phones).

That being said, it could easily be posted inside a forum post using the table tag. If you don't feel like typing all the tags, you could use the following site to create the code and then just copy and past it. It also makes it easy to update if you save it.

We'll keep it PDF for now...like you said, there are PDF readers on every platform, and I've personally never had a problem with them (and create/use/send PDF docs every day, all day).  Thanks for the suggestion, though! I'll pass it on to Ben, the IT guy!

Hey Ginger, head over to the "What Tree Do You Use" section and do a search on pellets.  Here's a recent topic, from Arnie, with his experience with pellets:

http://smokinitforums.com/index.php?topic=2365.0

There's been lots of discussion on pellets in the wood section.

235 deg, at least 5 hours.  Check at 5 hours and add wet sauce if you like.

Thank you for the very helpful guide. I have saved it and will be printing it out shortly.
I noticed that pecan wood is not mentioned for smoking pork and was wondering if Gregg or anyone else could comment on that.

Also no mention of peach. Is it safe to assume that it would be used just like apple or cherry?
Thanks again,
Ralph

I haven't used Peach before. But like apple, it is a mild smoking wood and can be used much like apple.

Ralph, we just couldn't list all the woods that are good!  Peach is great on pork, especially combined with a mix of hickory.  Very mild and sweet - I like it better than apple.  Adds a little orange color to your bark, too! ;)

Man you guys are Johnny on the spot or should I say Gregg and Tony on the spot?
I noticed that Pecan is not mentioned in the pork section. I was planning on using some pecan 2 oz., mixed with Apple 3.5 oz, on my Boston butt tonight.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Cheers, Ralph

This isn't an absolute, but the majority of my smokes are 2 fruits and a nut.  Apple and cherry dominate the 2 fruits.  Pecan is the dominant nut.

Ralph, I ordered 30 pounds of peach from fruitawood just before getting my #2. I guess I should have read more of the forums before ordering such a large amount.  :-[  Now I'm looking for any takers that want to buy/trade so I can get a bigger selection of woods. I've been using mostly peach and some hickory (from the #2 delivery) on my recent smokes. I also have some apple chips I've tried once.


Anyway, I really enjoyed the peach wood on the turkey I did. I'm doing some ribs tomorrow and will use peach with them.

Hi Tony, I would be interested in getting some of your peach chunks if the shipping doesn't tear me up. Let me know what it would cost for 5 to 10 pounds of peach shipped. My ZIP Code is 34112

If you prefer you can PM me or send email direct.

Tony - you might want to post your peach wood in "For Sale or Trade."
