    pear is excellent for chicken and pork, it's a lot like apple.

    Void where prohibited.
    It's a J&R Oyler. Either 700 or 750. It will easily smoke hundreds of pounds at a time. I think you can get into a brand new one for about $30K.

    Yeah Rachel pear would be good....I've even used fall cherry wood. They are a small dark cherry that come late in the fall here. Most fruit trees would work.

    I think you can use pretty much anything but evergreen trees....I don't think pines and such would work very well.

    So does pear wood lend much flavor to the food?

    Yes but it's subtle, not a powerful flavor and not sweet like apple.
