Many customers come to us that are looking for smoking wood because they are having a dinner party and want the best combination for their wood fired food. There is nothing quite like wood fired because it brings out all the flavors of what you are cooking. A good all around cooking wood is Pecan. It has a light aroma and doesn't over power your grilling and smoked food. If you like a little more aroma then Hickory wood may be a great option for you. Hickory is known as the "King of the Smoking Woods" and is popular around the nation to give that distinct hickory flavor.  It is known that Pecan wood will help the meats fall of the bone and hickory will give it that unique flavor. A great smoking wood recipe is to have a wood recipe of 50% Pecan and 50% Hickory. This gives you the best of both worlds with your cooking. Another way to go about your cooking wood is to use smoking wood pellets and smoking wood chips. Smoking wood pellets are a great way to add some unique and exotic flavors. The wood pellets are compressed and have a very long burn time. At first, you soak them in water for 30 minutes because this will allow them to smoke better. Then you wrap them up in aluminum foil and poke holes in the foil so the smoke can escape. You will only need to use 1/3 of cup to 1/2 a cup if you really need a lot of smoke you have have a very large grill. This sweet smoke fills your grill with smoke that will flavor your cooked food. People have thought that you'd have to buy a brand new BBQ smoker to get this kind of effect. But no, you can achieve this in your gas grill and use these amazing smoking wood pellets.

Our cooking wood pellets have some instructions that will give you a better outcome. Measure out 1/3 of a cup or a generous 1/2 cup if you are needing some more smoke. Soak your pellets for 20 minutes in water. This will enable your smoking wood pellets to smoke more. When you soak your cooking wood pellets, wrap them in a aluminum foil and you are going to want to poke holes in the aluminum foil and this will enable the pellets to smoke well. Remember to place the aluminum foil now close to the flames or on the flames. Cooking wood pellets are meant to burn long because they are compressed of 100% wood. There are no fillers in the pellets we sell. Some companies add a filler of Oak wood to cut their expenses cause 100% fruit and nut wood has a higher cost to the production company. We always use 100% real with no fillers. The nice thing about our wood pellets are they can turn a regular gas grill into a smoker. You don't have to go out and buy a BBQ smoker. Just use our cooking wood pellets and get the best of both worlds!
