A mild to medium hardwood with a slight sweetness, maple produces a lovely mellow smoke flavour which works well with pork and poultry and is also excellent with more delicate fish flavours such as trout.
Our maple wood 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. Our chips are packed (by hand) by weight and are available in bags of 500g. 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. Our maple wood chips are sourced from sustainable FSC certified managed woodland in the USA.
