There are many different types of woods that are used for smoking food and they come in many different forums. Some of the most common types are chunks, chips and logs, but they can also come in puck and pellet forum. Most flavor wood used is fruit like Cherry, Peach, Apple and Pecan. Some hardwoods that are used are Alder, Oak, Mesquite, Hickory, and Maple. Most charcoal smokers can use chunk, chips or even logs. The big competition smokers mainly use logs. Propane grills tend to use an optional smoker box that is a metal rectangle about 8 inches by 6 inches chips for smoking.
Electric smokers can use either chunks or chips for smoking but some smokers like the Bradley Smoker use compressed saw dust that is formed into a puck that is automatically fed in to the smoker. Wood pellets are made from compressed saw dust that is in a cylindrical shape then cut into pieces that are about 1 1/2 inches long. They get put in to a hopper then fed into the fire pot via an auger.
