We as a family love to smoke food and we have tried and tested just about every wood chip on the market so you don’t have to. We found such a variation in chip size, too small and they burn too quickly, too big and they burn too slowly so we decided to produce our own chips with the perfect blend of mixed sized chip to give the perfect burn time balance for consistent smoke. The smaller chips burn quicker which gets your smoker nice and hot and then the larger chips burn for longer with a consistent smoke to give the delicious taste you are looking for.

Instructions, hints and tips.
For the perfect smoked food, our wood chip can be used in a variety of ways:
Soak your chips in water for at least an hour, wait approx 15-20 mins after lighting your bbq until the coals have gone white and the flames have died down, scatter a couple of handfuls over the hot coals on your bbq and smoke away! Soaked chips will burn slower so this is ideal for your meats that require long slow smoking.
These are great to turn your gas bbq into a smoker. Pre soak your chips and then fill up the smoker box to approx. half full. Place inside the bbq and close the lid. After about 10-15 minutes the smoker box should start to smoke, this is when you add your meat or fish. Turn the bbq down to low and close the lid - cooking the meat or fish on low will take longer to give the food more chance to soak up that smoke flavour.
If you are new to smoking and don’t want to invest in a smoker, you can make your own out of foil. These can be used on gas or charcoal bbq’s and are quick and easy.
Pre soak a couple of hand fulls of chips for at least an hour. Take a piece of foil, approx 18” long and place your soaked chips in the centre. Fold the foil into a neat parcel making sure you tightly fold in the edges. Using a toothpick make several holes in the top of the pouch for the smoke to escape. With your gas bbq on high place the pouch underneath the cooking shelf, close the lid and wait for the smoke! After about 10-15 mins the pouch will smoke and you will be ready to pop in your food.
If you are using a charcoal bbq then place the foil pouch directly on top of the coals, this will begin to smoke quicker than on a gas bbq.
