Smoking wood for sale

 

When it comes to choosing the best smoking wood, it is important to pair it with the meats, poultry, wild game, beef etc that you will be smoking. The most important thing is to not use a smoking wood for sale that overpowers the food so much it is not edible. We have found this to happen with mesquite wood. Mesquite can be so powerful that after a long smoking time of over 4 hours, it was not edible. Mesquite wood is great in other application but we never recommend it for long smoking periods. Below is a chart we often use. It is not copy/pasted from the internet but our our personal experience:

Pecan smoking wood - A light burning smoking wood that is subtle. It's great with steaks, ribs, grilled vegetables, cheese and everything else we've ever thrown on the BBQ smoker.

 

Almond smoking wood - Almond smoking wood has a sweet and nutty and strong flavor. Almond wood is great with all meats.

 

Cherry smoking wood - A mild and fruity smoking wood and is often used in presentation with chef by turning the meat a light brown color.

 

Maple smoking wood - Maple wood is a excellent choice if you are looking for a very light cooking wood. Maple wood goes well with the lighter meats like fish and is also great for smoking cheese.  

 

Hickory smoking wood - Hickory wood is known as the "King of the Smoking Woods" and is a nation favorite when it comes to smoking meats, beef and many other types of food.

 

Oak smoking wood - One of the main uses for Oak wood is it is a great coal base. Meaning it is the first smoking wood to burn in your smoker firebox so the Oak coals can stay hot for a long smoking session. Oak is mostly a neutral wood but it is a favorite smoking wood and is known as the "Queen of the Smoking Woods." 

 

Mesquite smoking wood - Mesquite wood is a famous smoking wood that was made famous in Texas. Mesquite wood is best with foods that are on the grill or smoker for a short amount of time. If using Mesquite for too long, it can easily overpower the meats you are smoking.

 

Pear Smoking wood - Pear wood is a light and fruity smoking wood that can be used with anything.

 

Apricot smoking wood - Apricot has been a excellent smoking wood in our experience. Especially great for deer steaks and grilled vegetables, bbq ribs and burgers.

 

Walnut smoking wood - Walnut cooking wood has some similarities with Hickory wood but where the hickory wood is known to dry out meat on occasion, Walnut smoking wood will not do this. Where hickory wood can come across bitter, the walnut smoking wood does not. Walnut firewood is great for ribs (pork and beef) and everything else you can put on your smoker like steaks, burgers, pork butt and pork roast too. Pair this walnut woods with one of our marinades and bbq sauces.

Persimmon smoking wood -  Persimmon is a great fruit wood that doesn't overtake the meats and food you are smoking or grilling. Persimmon smoking wood a very unique smell and it is wonderful for all ribs, pork roast and pork butt, chicken, grilled vegetables and more.

Then measure out 1/3 cup and place them in a smoker box or you can wrap them in aluminum foil and poke holes in the foil so the sweet smelling smoke can escape.  Take a look on our menu above and look for "PELLETS" and you will find wood pellets like Hickory, Peach wood pellets, Alder wood, Pecan pellets, apple wood for sale, cherry wood, Sassafras wood, Oak soaked wine pellets and more. 

Smoking wood chips - Another unique way for smoking meats and food is to be using smoking wood chips. The best way to use smoking wood chips is to soak them in water or fruit juice for about 15 minutes. Then wrap some damp wood chips in some aluminum foil and poke some holes in the foil. This will allow the sweet smoke to escape and do a great job flavoring your food.  Look above on our website menu and click on "wood chips" to find what fits you best in your culinary endeavors.

Hi Sam,

That a good smoking wood question concerning chicken, ribs and brisket. First all of our bbq smokers are different. Some have thin metal to hold i heat and temperature control and some have thick steel that preserve better constant temperature with using the smoking wood for sale. You will know the amount of wood needed for a cooking period the best. For grilling and smoking chicken, go with a lighter smoking wood or some of our smoking wood pellets that have a lot of creative possibilities. For chicken, pecan wood or a light fruit wood. Brisket is a thicker meat and will allow you to use a firewood like hickory wood and people have very good outcomes with the flavoring of hickory wood. For ribs, I like doing a combination of 50% hickory wood and 50% pecan. You can use one cooking wood but when you bring in a compliment wood it really helps everything come together. Often people use a base wood like pecan wood or oak wood and use a 2nd smoking wood for the good part. Let me know if you have any other questions, Sam. Thanks from growokc.com

Hi Ron,

We are not just a holiday time business, we are open and ship year round. The holiday weeks of the year are a popular time of the year for cooking with smoking wood, but there are many popular times of the year that smoking woods are needed. For example, July 4th is a big time of the year for people being out by their BBQ smokers and smoking some great meats. Smoking a Thanksgiving turkey is another important time of the year for smoking wood. It’s not just the popular holidays, smoking wood is needed year round. Often we will get in a special and rare smoking wood and since cooking is experimental, people love to try out another type of smoking wood. So, check our inventory year round and we will be able to help you out with all your smoking wood needs. Great question, Ron

Hi Greg in New York,

There are many pluses to using smoking wood combinations. You will get a really good compliment and it is a fun way to get creative. I’ve used so many different combinations that I can’t list them all but I will list some good ones.

For pork ribs, I really prefer pecan smoking wood mixed with hickory smoking wood. I do a 50/50 ratio. If I am smoking a lighter meat than I’ll to 70% Pecan wood and 25% hickory wood.

Another smoking wood combination is using Oak firewood and Pecan smoking wood. The reason for this smoking wood combination is the Oak wood serves as some good heat and it will burn long. Oak really doesn’t have a lot of aroma but is seen as a neutral smoking wood to start your fire in your smoker firebox. Then the pecan smoking wood puts a awesome touch on your smoked meats.

Persimmon smoking wood and Pecan smoking wood has been a great smoking wood recipe. Although not many people sell persimmon around the nation because they don’t have any idea how great it is in cooking. Persimmon has a really high btu heat output and has a very unique aroma for a fruit smoking wood. The pecan smoking wood just makes everything better and it compliments the persimmon. A smoking wood mixture of persimmon and pecan is really good with smoking pork butt, beef and a lot of other lighter meats. Since it is a nice smoking wood combination is can also go well with the darker meats like wild game, venison and more.

Great question Greg. Let us know how we can help you any time.

Hi Josh,

First the lemon smoking wood chips are great with lighter meat like chicken and pork. It is a citrus smoking wood and it is one smoking wood that I really like to experiment with. The smoking wood pellets are always going to burn longer than smoking wood chips. They both need to be soaked in water for approximately 15 minutes. I use either a smoking wood tray or just wrap them in aluminum foil and poke some holes in the foil so the sweet smoke can escape.

So, yes it is well worth your time to experiment with lemon wood chips. Also, smoking wood pellets are always going to burn and last longer that wood chips. Just make sure when you buy wood pellets that they are 100% fruit or nut pellets. Do not buy the ones with additives like Oak or even glue. Some companies use glue to keep the pellets together. We never use pellets like that. Why do you want glue and adhesives ending up in your culinary dishes?

Great question on lemon wood chips and smoking wood pellets!

Greg,

The smoking wood chips and smoking wood pellets are both great but yes, there is a difference. It is advised that on both that you soak the in water or in fruit juice for 15 minutes before using them. The smoking wood pellets are fruit smoking wood and nut smoking wood that is ground down to sawdust. Then the sawdust is highly compressed in to “pellets.”
The smoking wood pellets are considered to burn longer than the smoking wood chips. If you have tried the wood chips, I would encourage you to try the smoking wood pellets. That is the best deciding factor for you whether you feel they burn longer than the wood chips. We only sell 100% fruit wood and 100% nut wood. The smoking wood pellets are just a different form to buy them in.

Hi Richard,

There are quite a few people that either call this kind of firewood for sale either smoking wood or cooking wood. To us, smoking wood and cooking wood are the same. Smoking wood for sale is a precise way to refer to this type of firewood because of what it does. It is meant to “smoke” instead of catching it on fire and burning it quickly. These types of firewood and especially fruit and nut firewood is to get the flavor and smoke out of the firewood instead of burning it up in a winter fireplace firewood. Cooking wood for sale has the same function. So whether you are buying smoking wood or cooking wood it is for the same purpose.

Great question, Richard
