Wood smoke adds to the mystique of outdoor cooking and gathers people around the fire. Adding wood chips and chunks to the grill boosts the flavor of any grilled food. On charcoal grills wood chips can be used directly on the hot coals. Wood chunks can even be used instead of coals. On gas grills add smoky flavor with the use of a smoker box for smoking wood chips. Hickory and Mesquite are classics in smoking. Their strong, rich flavors are blended with Cabernet Soaked Wood Chips to enhance and compliment the flavors of beef and lamb.
- These wood chips and chunks are made from barrels of French, American and European oak.
- These barrels are used in the great wineries of Spain and Portugal for producing Porto wines.
- They provide complex flavors perfect for barbecues or gas ovens.
