Forgive me if this is somewhere I did not find yet, but is there a preferred smoke for smoking butts?

I like Apple wood, or a mix of Apple and Oak.

Bit it depends more on what wood you have or can get easily, Just about anything works well with Pork, though I'm not so fond of Cherry on it' own with it.

Apple
Hickory (the strongest)
Oak
Pecan (hickory lite)

Jack daniels wood chunks (oak )

My two favorite combos.....
Apple & Cherry
Maple & Cherry
Each on its own is outstanding with pork in my opinion

Hickory, but I prefer a more pronounced smoke flavor on my pulled pork (and ribs).

Wild cherry has become my favorite smoke wood for pork.

I do not typically mix it with other smoke woods.
