One is if it is used too much in your smoking wood recipe it can easily dry out meats. I would rarely use 100% hickory smoking wood. You'll get meats packed flavor but it's not going to come out tender. Hickory as the best smoking wood may pack you authentic flavor but its no good when the meats or bbq ribs come out dry.

Another popular item to smoke in your bbq smoker is pork ribs. They are a American favorite and there are some great ways to smoke the ribs and there are some ways you definitely want to avoid. A very popular smoking wood recipe is combining 50% Pecan and 50% Hickory. This is a great way to smoke your ribs. The hickory is known as the King of the Smoking Woods and gives it that amazing flavor. The pecan smoking wood helps the meat stay tender and the meat can fall off the bone. These two characteristics make a great smoking wood combination. On occasion, hickory can give people indigestion and that is mostly because the bark is bitter. Some chefs and cooks will take the bark off the hickory wood to avoid that bitterness. If hickory smoking wood gives you indigestion then a great choice would be to use Walnut wood.

Oak is not going to interfere with you other main smoking wood. If you use Pecan smoking wood to mix with the Oak you are going to very happy. Pecan is a well known wood and is excellent.
A technique I have found to be very productive is to use a water pan in the bbq smoker. Combined with a great smoking wood combination, the water pan really keeps your meats moist as the water condensation finds its way into the smoking chamber. You can add water in your smoker water pan or you can use fruit juice. If you decide to use a gallon of fruit juice in your water pan, apple juice tends to be the most popular. I have also added some molasses in with the fruit juice.
If you are in Texas, you probably think of mesquite smoking wood as one of the best. But, we always caution our customers on using too much mesquite wood. Mesquite smoking wood is incredibly strong and can easily overpower you meat and ruin them. The last time we researched and used mesquite smoking wood, it turned all our smoked food a brown film and it was so intense with aroma that we had to throw everything away that we cooked. So, if you are using mesquite smoking wood then use it sparingly.
