Hickory 100% Bacon-Flavor Hickory smoked ham flavor 40LB bags
Hickory is probably the most common type of wood used for smoking (along with Oak). Hickory provides a strong pungent smoky bacon flavor and can be used for all types of meat, but is especially good for cuts of pork, beef, and ribs. There are many types of Hickory but the most common around the Midwest is the Shagbark and the Pignut. Both are similar in flavoring but the shagbark is a little stronger. A little hickory goes a long way in smoking so don’t over use it.
