When it comes to BBQ, there is nothing more traditional than cooking over natural, raw wood. WESTERN wood chunks are ideally used as a fuel source on kettle-style grills, offset smokers, or any appliance on which charcoal is typically used. Apple wood produces a mild yet delicate smoke with a hint of sweetness to add a very distinctive flavor to meats grilled or smoked with it. Apple is great for pork, poultry, and lighter items. It also goes well with beef when mixed with hickory or pecan.
