When you are considering how to use a smoker, the number one item you need to think about after the cooker and coals is wood. Food smoking will be more dependent on the type of food you are cooking so you will want to choose the type of wood with aLikewise amount of smoke. It is also important to match the type of wood with the food you are cooking on a regular basis. Different types of wood give off different aromas and flavors to the food you cooks in them. You do not want to use just regular wood when cooking food because the flavor and aroma will not be able to be fully accomplished. The right kind of wood to use is according to what the food you are cooking is. For example, you will not want to use just regular apple wood for making a smoked brisket because it does not have the proper flavor or aroma that you are looking for. You want the specific flavor that comes from alder or hickory, not just any old apple wood.

Wood from fruit or just charcoal, but not too much at first

Different woods can be smoked separately (one wood comes from the fruit, another from the charcoal, etc.)

The wood you use depends on what you will be smoking. Fruit wood can be smoked using dried flakes, chips or chunks. Regular oak or hickory, as well as fruit, can be smoked. Wine, beer or brandy can also be smoked according to your preference.

The liquid smoke you will be using needs to be added at the beginning of cooking, when you add the meat or liquid smoke will be added. Once the liquid smoke is added it must be allowed to burn for approximately 5 to 10 minutes (although some consider it ready at 2 minutes). You can also add the liquid smoke at the end of cooking, though that will change the flavor, as well as the texture, of the meat.
