Whats types of wood do you have?

I have been collecting free wood all year and have got a good supply going. So far I have a 1/4 cord of apple, 1/4 cord of peach, 1/2 cord of oak, 1/2 of Mesquite. I'll be cutting another Mesquite tommorow and a very large Post Oak next week so I should have a few cords split and stacked by the end of June. What about you guys?

I've got Apple, Oak, Sugar Maple, Hickory, Cherry, Guava and Pecan. Pecan is starting to run a little low, have to restock soon.

Would like to try peach in the future.

My In-laws have about 20 pecan trees and one of them is about to be history. I have a overgrown pear tree in my yard that will look good in my firebox.

Chunks... hickory only.

I've heard it said many times that unless the que is exposed to smoke for 6 or more hours you can't tell any difference between various species... but I just haven't found that to be true. I think I prefer hickory to the others I've tried and I very, very rarely have que exposed for 6 hours or more. I usually wrap in foil after 3-4.
