Walnut smoking wood - Walnut is a fabulous smoking wood and I have often mixed it with some sweet pecan. Walnut has some similarities to hickory but it is not quite as intense as hickory wood for sale. It is much lighter than mesquite wood.

Walnut wood also should be seasoned for awhile and should not be used if it is "green" or freshly cut. Walnut smoking wood needs to sit and season for a bit to mellow out the flavor.

Pecan cooking wood for sale - I refer to pecan smoking wood as the cooking wood for sale that can cook everything in a wonderful way.

Mesquite smoking wood - Mesquite cooking wood was made famous in Texas and they use it for all of their cooking. But beware, it is such a powerful aromatic cooking wood for sale that it can ruin your meat if you are using it for long smoking sessions.

Cooking wood is made up of certain fruit cooking woods and nut cooking woods. Most of these types of firewoods are found in the orchards of the United States.  There are the fruit orchards like peach smoking wood, apple smoking wood, pear smoking wood, orange smoking wood and many more. One of the most famous nut cooking wood is pecan smoking wood. Pecan smoking wood is used quite frequently because it is not overbearing to all your cooked meats, vegetables, pork and more. Pecan cooking wood is one of the cooking woods that can be used virtually with any type of cooking dish. 

When you are beginning your fire in your BBQ smoker firebox it needs to be done correctly. You need to decide if you are going to use charcoal for heat or using a base wood like Oak cooking wood.  As long as you are not cooking over 6 hours you can use pecan cooking wood as your base. But, if you are going to be smoking for quite some time then you need to consider using Oak cooking wood. Oak has a fairly neutral aroma but it has the capacity of burning really long and hot. Some people use Oak cooking wood as their main cooking wood and that is great. But, some people like to make a smoking wood combination and use the Oak cooking wood with another smoking wood like Hickory wood or Pecan wood or a variety of other smoking wood options.  We have found that using a cooking wood combination of Hickory smoking wood with Pecan smoking wood is great. This is the main smoking wood combination of smoking pork ribs. The hickory smoking wood combines excellent with the pecan smoking wood. The Pecan cooking wood really helps the meat fall off the bone and the hickory smoking wood gives it that excellent flavor that is known around the country in BBQ restaurants. Then there are the types of cooking wood options for some really long smokes like brisket. Brisket is going to need a long burning coal base like oak smoking wood. It's not advised to use charcoal on the very long smokes because what does one do when the charcoal burn out? You are stuck!  So use a long burning coal base in your BBQ smoker box like oak smoking wood. The oak cooking wood is rather neutral in aroma. Then a great option can be hickory wood. If you like to have some really nice authentic flavor then hickory wood is great. Please avoid mesquite wood cause it is so powerful with a strong aroma that it can literally destroy your meats and you'll be throwing it all away instead of enjoying it.

There are a couple different ways in using cooking woods to. Cooking wood pellets are awesome and are really easy to use. Our smoking wood pellets are 100% fruit or nut wood that has been ground down into sawdust and then compressed into pellets. You will need to soak the pellets for 15 minutes before using because that will help them smoke more. If you don't have a smoker box tray, put about a 1/3 cup of damp pellets in your smoker box and set the box on or close to the fire. If you are not using a BBQ smoker tray, you can use aluminum foil and wrap the pellets in the foil. Make some small holes in the foil so the sweet pellet smoke can escape. We have a wide variety of all types of cooking wood pellets and they really make cooking fun because of the wide variety we have at Upchurch Cooking and Firewood.

When it comes to choosing the best smoking wood, it is important to pair it with the meats, poultry, wild game, beef etc that you will be smoking. The most important thing is to not use a smoking wood for sale that overpowers the food so much it is not edible. We have found this to happen with mesquite wood. Mesquite can be so powerful that after a long smoking time of over 4 hours, it was not edible. Mesquite wood is great in other application but we never recommend it for long smoking periods. Below is a chart we often use. It is not copy/pasted from the internet but our our personal experience:
