You might not know that barbecue can take on a whole new dimension if you use BBQ wood chips. If you are an avid griller then you already know the reason for using barbecue wood chips. However, lots of people don’t have a clue why this product is so popular. Wood chips are very small pieces of wood that are added to your BBQ to create smoke. If you are not using a wood fire to cook your food, then the only way you are going to get a true smoke flavor is by adding wood to your fire. Using BBQ wood chips can send your grilling into the stratosphere. Whether you have an electric, gas or charcoal BBQ you can add wood chips to get authentic barbecue flavor. There are special smoker boxes that can be placed in your gas and charcoal grills to add that special wood smoke flavor. Read the instructions for your particular grill before you try doing this. The key to using wood chips is to not let them burn too quickly. This creates intense bursts of smoke that can make food bitter. By soaking wood chips in water for about 15 minutes you can slow down the combustion and lengthen the time in which the smoke is created. Make sure you let the wood drip dry for a few minutes before you add it to the fire. Ideally, your wood chips will be damp but not saturated. If you’re using a smoker in your grill, it’s probably not necessary to soak the wood chips before you use them. Soaked wood chips will burn longer, but if you’re cooking a steak, you probably don’t want a long, slow grilling. Wood smoking chips or BBQ wood chips are available in a wide variety of flavors. You can try cabernet, hickory or mesquite. The stores that sell BBQ wood chips will have flavor guides to help you wade your way through the new age of wood chips. In general, the lighter the meat, the milder the wood chip you need to use. You can also try “heavier” flavors with lighter meats, though, such as using mesquite with chicken, but start with fewer wood chips. With its more delicate aroma, alder wood chips best accompany lighter meats like fish and poultry. Fruit wood chips are also mild and are best used with poultry, veal and pork. Fruit woods include apple and cherry. Hickory or maple wood chips are strongly flavored and should be used with poultry, pork or beef. Beef, duck and lamb go well with the strong mesquite wood chips, and oak, another strong flavor, is good with beef and ham. When you barbecue, your first focus should be the meat. A substandard cut of meat is not going to be improved significantly by the wood chip you use. Make sure your meat or chicken is fresh and from a reputable butcher. So the next time you decide to grill a great piece of meat consider using some of these BBQ wood chips and savor the great flavor and aroma coming off your grill.
