I have discovered after much internet searching that suppliers of smoking chips do not all sell them in the same quantity types. Some sell by the pint, some by litres and others by weight. This can make comparing prices somewhat of a maths exercise (not my strongest discipline) but if you spend the time you can get good quality smoking chips much cheaper on the internet and from UK suppliers provided you want a greater quantity. Same principle applies for most things really so I do not feel I did not get value for money given I was only wanting to test them out but now I know what I want, I will be buying smoking chips in greater quantities from another supplier. Great if you are just starting to play with smoking until you get to know what you are doing…well a little better at it in any event!

having bought this and paid the postage, the amount you receive in a very small tub and is nothing but a rip off. The total weight of the chips was 346 grams at a cost of £4.95. Won't be buying this again

I've used these on a gas BBQ and found them to work really well.
Packaging:
Come in a white plastic, airtight tub which keeps them dry and fresh

Quantity:
A decent amount of product, you can get 5 or 6 Barbecues worth out of a tub.

Quality:
Produce a decent amount of fragrant smoke, no harsh chemical flavours emitted from the wood. The apple wood flavour could be a bit more pungent, but you may be able to achieve this by varying the quantity used or length of smoking time.

Tips:
These can be used on a gas BBQ by putting them into a tinfoil pouch and scoring it a few times with a fork. You'll often see advice telling you to soak wood chips before use. I've found that this just creates steam and takes longer before they start smoking and having any flavour benefit, so I don't bother. I usually turn the burners of the bbq on over one side, stick in a pouch or two, then shut the lid and wait for the chips to start smoking and the bbq to get up to temperature. I leave the righthand most burner off and stick the food on there, the food then cooks through and gets the lovely smokey flavour.

Well packed, shipped quickly, not as big as other chips that I have had but packed with Apple flavour, really added a buzz to a smoked turkey crown. The Oak, Cherry and Hickory were as good.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! Fabulous product which, used properly, produces a lovely smoke. Perhaps it is me, being comparatively new to all this, but it seems to me that the guidance for usage recommends that you use so much more than is necessary. No? Whatever. I use the quantity that I feel is right and I have been very pleased with the results - a lovely, delicate tasting smoke that works well with most meats and fish. Sadly, although excellent, I prefer the whisky oak chips from the same supplier. Recommended though, just the same. Enjoy!

These chips have a lovely gentle flavour when smoked. I use them in a Weber 57cm One-Touch Original BBQ inside a Barbecue Wood Chip BBQ Smoker Box with great results. I soak the chips for at least an hour in warm water, and the smoker box (placed on a grille over the hot coals) keeps the wood smouldering for an hour or more, imbuing the food (I usually do chicken or salmon) with a sweet, not over-pungent flavour.

Secret Garden supply them in a handy re-usable sealable plastic tub. They have stayed bone dry over winter in my shed.

Highly recommended

Wonderful with any cut of pork, if you like apple wood smoked bacon, you'll love these!

Beautiful sweet, fruity smoke. Adding wood chips to any BBQ will up your game for sure!

The apple wood chips produce a mild and tasty flavour for smoked trout.
Soaking the chips first improves the process, producing more smoke.
Very pleased with the product.

Like the cherry wood, it gives a mellow flavour. Interesting results when mixed with stronger flavours like oak, hickory and alder. Quick delivery and well packed.
