Hi Jane in Columbus Ohio

Prime rib is amazing to smoke but yes it is a expensive piece of meat and you want to make sure you do it right. This is the occasion that I’d use Pecan wood. It’s not going to be too overbearing. Be careful not to use mesquite wood since it is too overbearing.

Good question, Jane!

Jeff in Wichita,
The cooking woods are great as campfire wood because they can be used as heat and cooking. One of my favorite campfire firewoods to use is Hickory wood. It has a great smell and ambiance and is perfect for hobo dinners and burgers. Marshmallows too!
