Pinion wood is referred to as the "smell of Christmas" and has a amazing smell. It can be used in your outdoor fire pit, indoor fireplace and outdoor fireplace. It is a long burning and hard firewood that creates a lot of heat. In the spring and summer, it repels bugs, insects and mosquitoes. We love the smell of the firewood and the bugs hate the smell and get as far away as they can from the pinion wood fire.
Another firewood that is great in your BBQ smoker is pecan wood. Pecan firewood is a light smelling smoking wood. It is a go to firewood if you are wanting to grill steaks, smoke bbq ribs, grill vegetables and more.

If you are looking for a long burning firewood for longer smoking times in your BBQ smoker, then hickory wood may be the best option for you. Hickory wood is known as the King of the Smoking Wood and is best known for its flavor. It creates wonderful flavor for all your cooking wood needs.
Firewood is often seen as a winter time thing but that is not the case. There are firewood types that can be used year round and especially all the smoking wood and cooking wood types are used all year round. To look strictly at winter firewood types that burn hot there a couple different options:
1.) One of the hottest burning firewoods happen to grow in Kansas and it is Osage Orange. It is a extremely hot burning and long burning wood. The native american indians used it in bow making. It is a very popular smoking wood in the kansas area. It also called horse apple and a few other description.
2.) Another hot burning firewood is persimmon wood. It grows in a few parts of the United States and is also a great smoking wood. Persimmon mostly grows wild but is a very hot burning fireplace firewood and also makes a excellent smoking wood.
One of the year round firewood options is Santa Fe Pinion firewood. It is great in the spring and summer because it repels bugs and mosquitoes. Important: Pinion wood is not a cooking or smoking wood. Since pinion wood is a pine (gymnosperm) it does not do well for cooking. You can roast marshmallows with pinion wood but nothing further than that in the cooking spectrum. In the fall and winter, pinion wood is a hot and long burning wood that works great in indoor fireplaces, outdoor fire pits and chiminea fireplaces. Pinion firewood has a spectacular aroma and is also referred to as the "smell of Christmas."
If you are looking for a hotter burning firewood then Hickory firewood is a really good option. Hickory has a very hard inner core and can burn longer that other burning firewood. We have sold a lot of hickory wood in the winter months because it has a long and hot burn time in the indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit.

If you are looking for the correct smoking wood for meat, we have a variety of options for you. Smoking meat is a fun endeavor and pairing your meat with the correct smoking wood is important. There are a variety of meats to consider like wild game meats, beef, pork and more. In experience, the lighter smoking woods are used with pork. Pecan smoking wood is a great choice for meat but hickory wood would not be my first choice for a lighter meat like pork.
Hickory smoking wood - Hickory packs a very robust aroma and when used correctly can be a fabulous smoking wood. It is called the "King of the Smoking woods" and is a popular choice for ribs and brisket. There are some various meats that hickory wood is not preferred like fish. Fish needs a lighter wood and hickory wood can easily overpower fish and seafood. Hickory is best used in smaller portions and is really good as a add on smoking wood to your base wood that you use in your bbq smoker.
Walnut smoking wood for meat - Walnut wood can exceed the expectations and can really do well with meats and wild game. Walnut smoking wood has some similarities to hickory wood but walnut will not dry out your meat like using too much hickory wood can do.
Pecan wood - Pecan smoking wood is a all around amazing wood that can be used as your base wood and your primary smoking wood. A base wood is the wood you use to begin your fire in your bbq smoker firebox. The base wood also serves as the underlying coals to keep the fire hot throughout your cooking and smoking session. Pecan wood can be used with ribs to fish. If you are interested in grill and smoking fish then pecan smoking wood is going to be your best choice. Pecan is a lighter aromatic wood and won't overpower your cooked food.
For a unique way of smoking meat, bbq pellets are a great way to smoke meats. Pellets are 100% fruit or nut wood and they should not have any fillers in them. We also discourage pellets that have a oak wood base. If you want oak wood pellets then buy them that way. But to "cut" the 100% fruit and nut wood with oak is not preferred. Using smoking wood pellets really expand your possibilities in aromatic flavors to use. To look at all of our smoking wood pellets for sale, click here
