Generally, in the area of around 451 degrees F. So, if this is a cooking-related question, you will want your temperature somewhere between 425 and 450 degrees to get the smoke but not the combustion.

Different woods ignite at different temperatures and burn at different ones too.

If it was me I would soak the hickory so it would burn slower and smoke more, and thereby adding more of that flavour to what your cooking.

Sometimes slower is better, not hotter!
