Smoked chook!
« on: August 10, 2018, 03:12:06 AM »
Looking to smoke a couple of chickens this weekend. In terms of wood I have the following

Pear chunks
Apple chunks
Cherry chunks
And chips, itís Maple then Hickory.

Any tips on which to try out first?

Those all sound good. I like apple and cherry. Never tried maple or pear.

I would go for pear as it's IMHO the best wood for chicken. It gives nice colour and taste. However, I'm adding only a very small piece as chicken meat tends to absorb the smoke very easy.
