What is the best wood to smoke a brisket to get the smokiest sweetest flavor? It’s been a while since I’ve made one and I honestly can’t remember which wood I used. The store has several different ones. Cherry,peach,pecan,hickory,and mesquite.

I read that some woods can cause a bitter taste.

you need to control you smoke. you want a light blue smoke not a big billowing cloud. Too much oxygen caused too thick if a smoke that make a bitter bark on the brisket.

You can cheat on the smoke ring by using pinking salt in your rub. frown Shhhhh..... dont tell anyone.

I’m thinking on a combo of hickory and cherry. Gotta love those cherished crunchy ends!

I really like using Pecan. Hickory might be too strong for some people.

Hickory's probably the most common, followed by mequite and post oak. I've never tried cherry or apple, but if you're going for a more sweet flavor then that might be the ticket. I don't think you can go wrong, really. I don't use a lot of oak though, that gives a real heavy smoke and that's what will cause the bitter flavor if you're not careful.

Hickory. I do my brisket Texas-style with just salt and pepper(lots of it). The fruit woods are good for pork but I feel brisket needs a little more oomph. Texas traditionally is post-oak.
