The different types of wood chips available make it easy to experiment with different flavours and create unique and delicious smoked dishes.
Which wood is most suitable for food smoking?
The wood chips used for smoking food can come from a variety of trees, including hickory, mesquite, apple, cherry, and pecan. Each type of wood imparts a unique flavour to the food being smoked, so choosing the right food smoking wood chips is an important part of the smoking process.

How to use Food Smoking Wood Chips
When using wood chips for smoking, it’s important to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using them. This helps to prevent the wood from burning too quickly and also helps to create more smoke. The food being smoked should be placed on the grill grates above the food smoking wood chips, with the lid closed to trap the smoke inside. The temperature of the grill should be kept low, around 105-120°C, to allow the food to smoke and cook slowly.
