Pimento is a little harder to find and is expensive. I mix it with Maple and it goes a lot farther and you get a good flavor from the pimento wood still. Yancey might have a good source with his Jamaican roots.

I've never cooked with Apple. The same exact bag of Pecan wood is $10, but Apple is $20. Just because the term "apple wood smoked" is popular, doesn't mean it's any better than the next. If anything, apple should be cheaper. I'm sure there's a LOT more apple trees in the world that pecan.

I use pecan wood all the time...Use the broken limbs and twigs that drop from storms and stuff each year....Great to cook anything one in my opinion...I also like peach wood as an extra....

Amazon is your friend.

Yep, I am only applying smoke during the initial phase although you can get some superficial smoke flavor at the end. However each kind of wood does have its own flavor and mixing them can produce a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Some people prefer to just mix the woods from the beginning. In slid meats that will be sliced or eaten whole as opposed to being pulled I like layering the smoke.

My old cook would smoke a whole hog 3 days per week for the tourists. Always over pimento. I have found a cheap alternative that gives me the same flavor: allspice. Allspice berries are the fruit of the pimento tree. You may have an old jar of the ground stuff in your spice cabinet. Adding some to a BBQ marinade/baste/sauce will give it a jamaican flavor. For the true Jamaican smoke though I buy whole pimento berries and soak them like wood chips. Like with all flavoring spice woods such as rosemary go light. It doesn't take nearly as many berries to get the flavor as it does wood from the tree itself.

Here are the berries. $12 and free 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime: http://www.amazon.com/Spicy-World-Wh...words=allspice

Amazon Prime is a Netflix like streaming service. They have different offerings so I have both. The free 2 day shipping that comes with it saves me far more over the year than what I pay for it though. If you dont have it sign up through me and I make a few bucks: http://www.amazon.com/gp/video/prime...=dentplan08-20

Since we're discussing BBQ, one of my favorite topics.. I actually had some room left on my rack 2 weeks ago and didnt want to waste it. I had some ground beef in fridge and pattied up 3 hamburgers. INCREDIBLE. I left them on for about 2 hours. The patties didnt shrink down as much as when you put them on the grill. They also retained most the juice that you can lose over an open flame. So if you've not tried hamburgers on the smoker.. and have some extra room. Go for it.

Every time one of these threads starts I get hungry as hell.

My peeps will not let me do meatballs any other way than in my smoker now. I do a 4 stage cook: smoke/roast/pan fry/simmer in sauce.

Thanks for the tip, I will give it a try. I keep whole allspice on hand, my wife loves the flavor in lots of dishes. Never thought of smoking with them.
