Cook4All BBQ Smoking Wood Chunks, Whisky Oak – Large 5kg Box
(as of Oct 06,2021 18:43:07 UTC – Details)
The essence of a barbecue is smoke. Originally the only fuel source was dried hardwood logs which provided the heat and cooked the meat, with smoke from the wood and dripping juices imparting distinctive BBQ aromas. Most grills and smokers these days use charcoal or gas to produce heat, whilst flavour and aromas are achieved with the addition of wood chips, chunks, bisquettes, etc. The colour of smoke from wood or charcoal can vary significantly. The most desirable smoke, particularly for long cooks, is almost invisible with a pale blue tint. White smoke comes about when charcoal is igniting, whilst black and grey smoke occurs when the fire is starving of oxygen. The latter can give a bitter sooty flavour to food. So ideally you need to get the temperature of your fuel right before adding your wood and control it throughout the cooking process. These BBQ chunks are perfect for long, slow cooks. For best results, soak an appropriate amount of wood chunks in water for at least 30 minutes. This prevents the wood from burning too quickly and allows for longer smoking times. To increase the intensity, add a few soaked wood chunks to the hot coals prior to placing food on your cooking grill. These flavoured chunks add an extra dimension to the flavour of food and are perfect for BBQs. They can be used in a smoking chamber, a separate smoker box with a gas BBQ, on a charcoal BBQ, or even in a fire pit. Wood chunks are an economical way of adding extra depth to your food. They go a long way and are a steady source of smoke which is a bonus and why they are a popular method of smoking. In a fabulous choice of flavours, this 5kg box of wood chunks will keep you going for a long time. You could try mixing flavours, for example mild, sweet apple and the stronger oak blend well. Generally speaking, mild woods are best for foods that are not heavily seasoned or marinated, whilst stronger woods are good with spicy or heavily flavoured foods.
