High quality wood chips specifically manufactured for use with hot smokers, stovetop smokers and The Smoking Gun (tm). Wood chips are far superior to wood shavings which burn poorly because of the flat shape of a shaving compared to the more square shape of wood chips - ie they allow air to draw past them. This is especially important for the Smoking Gun because shavings can block the wire screen and cause the gun to over-heat. The other problem with shavings is that because they are waste from saw mills (often swept from the floor) they can have other materials mixed with them.
Chemical free and ground to a consistency that gently smoulders when ignited – so a little goes a long way! These smoking chips can also be used on the BBQ to flavour food - simply sprinkle onto coals just before cooking the food or near the end of the cooking time.
MESQUITE Flavour of the Southwest USA, from smoked chicken tacos to smoked chilli-peppers. This has a very strong, earthy flavour so remember a little bit does it as overused it can turn foods bitter. Works well with most meats, especially beef, and most vegetables.
