Applewood is a favourite for food smoking because it works well with a wide range of food types. Whilst stronger than other fruitwoods, it still provides a pleasant smoke flavour with a slightly sweet overtone.
Our pure Applewood chips are graded to a chip size of approximately 5mm to 10mm in size, ideal for use in a hot smoker or on your barbecue. For best results, soak the chips in water for approximately 30 minutes before use, or use with a stainless steel smoker box. Both of these methods will inhibit the wood from igniting and promote richer, more intense wood smoke flavours. The 500g chips are packaged in a robust cellophane bag with natural jute twine tie. All woods for smoking are sourced from managed estates or sustainable sources and the wood is completely natural and untreated. These apple wood chips are sourced from sustainable FSC certified managed orchards in the USA.
