Apple wood is one of my favorite woods to use on long smokes. Apple is a milder wood that’s great on pork, beef, poultry and seafood. It’s a different tone than hickory and infuses well into meats.
Apple wood smoking chunks are also fairly easy to find through all seasons. While other woods like peach, cherry and pecan may be available in spring and summer, most retail locations scale back to hickory, mesquite and apple wood.
