Black Cherry Wood burns with a mild smoke but imparts a rich sweetness and fruitiness to foods. With mild meats like poultry or pork, the sweet notes of cherry wood are a great complement for rubs and sauces made with spicy or warm flavors like ginger, clove or allspice. With stronger-flavored meats like ham or wild game, cherry wood pairs well with rich bourbon-based sauces or glazes. Use cherry wood alone, or as a balancing flavor with hickory or oak.

Wood Chips vs Wood Chunks:
Chips are best used to add quick bursts of smoke to your grilling and chunks are best used for longer, slower smoking or grilling projects.

Smoking Notes:
• Soak wood chips prior to using them. This allows the chips to smolder and create smoke, not become a heat source.
• Experiment! Every palate is different. Don’t be afraid to mix different woods to find a unique flavor.
• Not all woods are suitable for smoking, some can make you very ill, so don't use a wood unless you have sufficient evidence that it is safe. Only use wood designed for use with food. Most wood that you buy at a lumber store has been treated with arsenic, insecticides and other chemicals.

NOTE: These Wood Chips are sold by the pound. Please indicate the number of pounds you would like in the quantity box.
