Smoking Wood Guide


Smoking is another seasoning to add to grilled favourites. Like spices, different woods impart very different flavours - from the intense, spicy notes of mesquite and hickory, to the sweet and fragrant notes of apple and cherry.

If you've never done any smoking before, don't overdo it - start with a small amount of wood chips (1/2 cup or so), and soak them in liquid for at least 1/2 hour. Drain the wood chips, and then scatter them directly on top of the smoldering coals.
