Bbq smoker time with our Smoking Wood !

It's another great time to be cooking outdoors with smoking wood for your guests, family and friends. Although, year round is great this seems to be the time of the year that people are really enjoying getting in the outdoor to cook up some amazing dishes. There is nothing quite like creating your own food in your BBQ smoker to enjoy and have satisfaction from. The fall time of the year is also the period of the year that families are hitting the road to find a great camping spot for the weekend. Whether you are roasting marshmallows or cooking hobo dinners, we have some excellent firewood for you to do it all. We can help you in every type of cooking endeavor or just enjoying a fire late at night.

Let's talk about a good campfire wood.  You are going to want a firewood that is going to burn hot and long and also would be good for cooking over the fire.  My first choice actually would be hickory wood. Not only is it a great smelling firewood, but it will burn hot and long into the evening hours. Just make sure you are using seasoned hickory so it will burn well. The seasoning time need to be at least 8 months. It is common to use green hickory wood in your BBQ smoker but for campfire purposes make sure it has aged well. So, it you are eager to cook hobo dinners, burgers, marshmallows and any other food, hickory can be a great solution. Another great solution is going to be pecan wood. But again, make sure you are using seasoned wood just to make sure you will have no problems getting it to light.

For campfire wood, the most overall and best aromatic smell is going to be from our Santa Fe Pinion wood. It smells beyond lovely but it is not the choice if you are going to be cooking food. Pinion wood is a gymnosperm pine and is too sappy for cooking.

When you are using your BBQ smoker a important thing to consider is the amount of time you are going to be cooking. A short cooking and smoking time could use a different smoking wood. A very long smoking time makes other firewood be a better option.  A average cooking time wood is going to come from Pecan wood, apricot wood, persimmon wood and some other various wood. For a much longer smoking time you will need to prepare a good coal base. A coal base is the bottom layer of smoking wood that burns long and the coals stay good and red hot for many hours. A popular coal base throughout the years has been Oak firewood. Oak wood is a long and hot burner and has a relatively neutral smell. It is not going to over power your main smoking wood. The one thing it will do is it is going to heat up your BBQ smoker, so consider that when you think about the BBQ smoker temperature you are going to want to stabilize at.  Make sure you are using seasoned Oak smoking wood because if you have green and freshly cut Oak wood you will have quite a task getting it to light. Begin with your oak wood and let it burn down for a good hour until you can begin to see it is entering the coal stage. After it has entered the coal stage, you can begin to place your main cooking and smoking wood right on top.

Stan,

That’s a good question. I don’t often soak smoking wood in my water pan, but I do some other stuff that has had success. I have filled my bbq smoker water pan with apple juice. I’ve also put some sweet molasses in my water pan. Some people fill their water pan with vegetables. I really like using a water pan because then all that water vapor and moisture helps keep your smoked meat moist. My #1 thing to put in the water pan has been to fill it with a good fruit juice and add some sweet molasses.

Thanks Stan

Do you use any smoking woods in your water pan? I’ve heard of many techniques and I was curious.

Thanks,

Peter,

That is a great question. First, I choose a good coal base and it depends how long I am going to be smoking in my BBQ smoker. If I am going to be smoking less than 6 hours, I’ll use a seasoned pecan wood to get the firebox coals. If it is a a longer smoke I’ll go with some of the imported lump charcoal that we sell. There is also an option of using some Oklahoma Oak wood chunks. I’ll let the fire die down for about an hour. Then I’ll choose a smoking wood that goes with what I am cooking. Often I’ll choose a combination of pecan smoking wood with hickory smoking wood. If I am smoking something delicate, I’ll probably choose persimmon smoking wood. That is often what I’ll do. If there is a meat that is on the grill for a very short time then I’ll go with Texas Mesquite smoking wood or hickory smoking wood. I also like adding a unique smoking wood pellets to change things around. Hope that helps!

Stephanie,

If you are looking for your first smoker, I would choose simplicity as the most important thing. Advanced BBQ smokers can get fairly complex with all they are able to do especially with the air venting and temperature controlling. Look for a offset smoker so it will be great for you now and for years later.

Are there any BBQ smokers you suggest to buy? There are so many options, I just could use advice. Thanks
