Wood Smoking Chips are used to add wood smoke flavours to food or drinks through Handheld Smokers, Freestanding Smokers or while cooking on an oven or grill. The most important thing to remember is that all wood isn’t created equal, and the flavour of smoking wood chips varies from mild to strong. Fruit woods like Apple, Cherry or Peach are mild in flavour and ideal for subtle foods like poultry or fish. Birch is a touch stronger and suitable for stronger fish like Salmon. Beef or game meat, and spirits like Whiskey pair well with Maple, Pecan, Hickory or Oak smoking wood. Mesquite has the strongest wood smoke flavour and should always be used in moderation to prevent overpowering the food or drink.
