|About our cooking wood.|
Our gourmet cooking wood is harvested from forest trees. This product is not from orchard-based woods that have been or have the potential to be sprayed or growth enhanced with chemicals, which can be transferred to the food that is being cooked.
Our wood is fresh and never kiln dried. 15%- 20% moisture is the ideal moisture level for most types of smoking cooking wood.
It is important to remember, that when shopping for smoking wood chips and chunks, products that are packaged in plastic bags generally must have an average moisture level of less than 8% to remain stable enough to prevent mold growth and spoilage. Unfortunately, this means this type of product would compromise the ability of it to re-hydrate, as once the molecules of the wood are deprived of air circulation and moisture, they permanently die.
Our bagged cooking chunks are packaged in air flow bags to allow for natural drying. You will never see our gourmet woods sealed in plastic!
Smokey Bears Gourmet Cooking Wood is used by top BBQ and gourmet restaurants as well as champion BBQ competitors.
