Beech wood or beechnut is the nuttiest of all the nut woods that are used for smoking or grilling. The beechnut smoke has a distinct nut smell that pairs very well with beef, pork, and cheese. Beechnut is one of the most dense of all hardwoods which means it will smoke longer with a more intense smell that even hickory, oak, or pecan.
It seems to be common knowledge that wood
from the colder climates have more density than those grown in
year-round warm weather.
shows that northern woods have a higher density (4%-28%) than their southern counterparts.
bottom line to all of this is simple: The greater the density of wood,
the more smoke, and the more smoke the more flavor! All of the wood
