If you are looking for the best smoking wood, come by our shop in downtown Oklahoma City. We also ship if you are out of our area. We have Santa Fe Pinion wood, cooking wood, smoking wood and fireplace firewood year round. Below we have listed a few of our smoking wood mixes that have had high reviews from our customers. Part of smoking wood and smoking meats is experimentation. We do a lot of smoking wood mixes here at our wood shop. We smoke at east once a week usually on Saturdays to find the newest and best smoking wood recipes. If you are like us, you are looking for that perfect smoking wood recipe. If you have found your best smoking wood recipe, we are not here to change it. We are just helping you smoke some of the best meats in the nation!

All our fruit firewood is seasonal but we always have various best smoking woods available all months of the year. Pecan firewood for sale is a wood we always have. Pecan wood is one of my favorite cooking woods. We also have Hickory because in small amounts it gives a great flavoring. Using too much hickory can really dry out your smoking meats.  We bring up Texas Mesquite wood but we recommend you have some experience using mesquite before you invest in larger quantities of this smoking wood.

We have apple smoking wood at times throughout the year but we have found the apple wood is quite overrated. It has been implied that apple smoking wood is the "best" and that is what people think. But, it's not true. It has quite a tangy taste that some people just don't like. If you are looking for sweetness, Persimmon smoking wood has a much larger sap line and is sweeter than apple wood. We have customers that have been enjoying our smoking wood mix combinations to really elevate their meats to bring out more flavor. Below I will discuss the different mixes we have been using with our customers lately.

Walnut Persimmon mix - This is a mix of our Cross Timbers Persimmon wood and Oklahoma Walnut smoking wood. This is a unique combination that really brings sweetness into your smoking wood meats. The persimmon wood already has one of the largest sap lines in the smoking wood industry. That large sap line really brings out the flavors of all your smoking meats. We fuse Walnut wood because of its similarities to Hickory wood. But since Hickory can dry out meats and also give people indigestion, we use Walnut wood in this mix. Walnut is a high valued wood in the United States but that is for the reason of furniture making. We often get customers that are wood working professionals that often use our stumps and cut firewood to make creations out of them. Consider linking walnut wood and persimmon wood together to bring you a great smoking wood mix!

 

Mesquite Pecan mix - Mixing our Texas Mesquite together with Southern Oklahoma Pecan has been a popular mix here in our wood shop. The mesquite has a distinct and heavy aroma and is definitely made famous in Texas. It can also be used for fajitas and burgers and any time of meat that stays on the grill for a short time. For a longer smoke time in your BBQ smoker we recommend you combine it with our Southern Pecan smoking wood. We think of pecan wood as a lighter smoking wood but it is just a wonderful wood available here. The pecan smoking wood also counters the heat that is put off by the Texas Mesquite. Just using the mesquite wood can really drive up the overall temperature of your smoker. Doing a 50% Pecan and 50% Mesquite mix of the two smoking woods really helps in this way.

Oak wood and Plum chips mix - This has been a unique mix we like using. The Oak smoking wood is really the best smoking wood for your base in your smoker. The base is the wood you use in the bottom of your firebox to keep hot with what you decide to put on top. If you choose the wrong base wood then your underneath fire will go out and you won't be able to cook for a long period. For long smokes in your BBQ smoker of over 6 hours, always use Oak wood for this purpose. We then use the Plum smoking wood chips because it is such a delicate fruit smoking wood. With your Oak wood as a base this means you can put your plum wood chips in a smoker box tray and it will smoke for hours! Another technique you can use instead of a smoker box tray is to use aluminum foil. Wrap 1/3 cup of our Plum chips in the aluminum foil and poke some holes in the foil for the smoke to escape. Some people like to soak the plum chips in water to allow them to not catch on fire and really put off a great long smoke in your BBQ smoker.

If you are on the search for a new smoking wood to try and experiment with, you have come to the right place. We have at least 30 different smoking wood options available. They all have unique features whether they are exclusively used to smoke meats or some are better when grilling fish. If you are looking for a delicate smoking wood for grilling fish, I would recommend you start with Alder because it is a well known Alaska smoking wood. It has features the work best with fish. A type of smoking wood that you would never want to use grilling fish for example is hickory wood. It is way too overpowering for delicate meats like fish.

Some of our best and most exotic cooking and smoking wood options have to be our large selection of smoking wood chips and smoking wood pellets. Due to the popularity and vast selection of our smoking wood pellets, we have an infinite amount of possible smoking wood recipes.  This is what makes cooking so much fun!

Hi Ryan,

In my experience, I really like pecan wood and persimmon wood. After a lot of cooking, the pecan wood and/or persimmon wood. In a couple years from now I may have a different answer but for now I have been using pecan wood as my best smoking wood options.

Great question, Ryan
