What to consider before using BBQ smoking wood chips

Here’s everything you need to know before you start using smoking wood chips for grilling:

Choose the right wood

Choose wood pellets carefully as the type of wood affects the flavour of your dishes. Popular options include hickory, mesquite, apple, cherry, and pecan.

Check the quality

Make sure the wood pellets are of good quality and free from any contaminants. Look for pellets made from 100% hardwood with no additives or fillers.

Ensure compatibility

Not all wood pellets for grilling are compatible with all types of pellet grills, so check the manufacturer’s recommendations before purchasing and ensure compatibility.

Soak the wood pellets

Soaking wood pellets isn’t always necessary, but it can help them last longer and produce more smoke. Soak the pellets for 30 minutes before using them.

Deduce the amount of wood pellets

Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for the pellet amount. Few pellets will lead to weak smoke, while too many pellets can lead to bitter over-smoking.
