The smoke from White Cedar Wood is smooth and distinctively aromatic, making it a great seasoning to use on its own or combined with other flavors. The woodsy, slightly spicy flavor of cedar works particularly well with the natural sweetness of honey, apricot, onion or caramelized foods. Try cedar when grilling or smoking foods rich in flavor like lamb or salmon.
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.
• 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.
