Imparts great flavour
on 6 July 2015
I've used these on a gas BBQ and found them to work really well.
Come in a white plastic, airtight tub which keeps them dry and fresh
A decent amount of product, you can get 5 or 6 Barbecues worth out of a tub.
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.
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.
