A collection of six wood chip flavours including fruitwoods and hardwoods in an array of flavour strengths to suit a wide range of hot smoking projects. Use on a BBQ or hot smoker. Chips are 6mm to 1cm in size and produced from 100% natural woods, sustainably sourced from managed orchards or woodlands. Included with this wood chips six pack is our Guide to Using Wood Smoke Flavours which will help you match wood flavour to food type and provides tips and techniques for hot smoking success.
This instant wood chips larder includes the following in order of flavour strength: oak, hickory, apple, cherry, maple and beech in a variable chip size typically half a cm to just over a cm.
Oak: a strong smoke flavour which works with most types of food including fish and red meats.
Hickory: a strong hardwood ideal for red meat and oily fish such as mackerel.
Apple: a medium strength smoke flavour, ideal for white meats and poultry.
Cherry: slightly sweeter than the apple, cherry is an ideal partner of game and poultry.
Maple: a medium strength hardwood which works well with pork, chicken, fish and vegetables.
Beech: a milder hardwood flavour ideal for more delicate flavoured foods.
For best results, soak the chips in water for approximately 30 minutes before use, or use with a stainless steel smoker box. Both of these methods will inhibit the wood from igniting and promote richer, more intense wood smoke flavours.
Our chips are packed by weight (500g) in recyclable cellophane bags. sealed and labelled and packaged in a kraft gift box.
All woods for smoking are sourced from managed estates or sustainable sources and the wood is completely natural and untreated. The woods have FSC/PEFC certification. Our suppliers undergo a stringent audit for each of the sources they select to ensure they are truly sustainable and of the appropriate grade.
