Product details

Then, you proudly present your smoked food art (yes, it’s art) to family, friends, neighbours, co-workers and everybody else who is within a nose’s sniff of your smoked creations.

Consider the Dish as a Whole, Not Just the Protein

There are some things to keep in mind though. You have to consider the dish as a whole, not just the protein or vegetable you are using. For example, if you are planning on making a spicy & saucy chicken dish, you may want to bump up your smoking to a stronger wood than would otherwise be suggested.

Consequently, the smoky flavour will show through the spices. Otherwise, if you want to smoke a large cut of game meat without more seasoning apart for the old faithful salt & pepper combination, then use a milder wood, As a result, the natural flavours of the meat will take centre stage.

Personal Preferences Matter 

As well keep your personal preferences in mind. If you find woods such as mesquite or hickory overpowering or bitter, then consider only using them for well seasoned and flavourful cuts of meat, such as game or beef.

Alternatively, consider changing woods halfway through the smoking process for something milder. Or you can cut the smoking time by finishing it in the oven. Otherwise, if you’re on the other end of the spectrum, and you like a heavy smoke flavour, then woods such as Alder just won’t cut it for any pork dish for you. Just go for something stronger.

 Happy smoking!
