BBQ season is fast approaching and now's the time to stock up on all your favourite BBQ essentials. As all barbecue enthusiasts know, aside from the perfect choice of firewood, using the right wood to smoke your meats and vegetables is the best way to bring your grill to brand-new heights and host a BBQ to remember. Whether you're looking for new ways to up your BBQ game or just enjoy experimenting with different flavours, you'll love Lekto Wood Fuels' new Wood Chips.
Coming in both Apple Wood and Cherry Wood varieties to fit all recipes and smoking preferences, they're designed to give barbecued meats, poultry, fish, vegetables, and even fruit a rich, aromatic flavour. Both our Apple Wood Chips and Cherry Wood Chips are the perfect wood chips for smoking.
Below, you'll find out what makes these two options stand out, both in terms of their shared qualities and distinct characteristics. We've also included a few handy tips on how to best use them to make your smoked meats, vegetables, and even grilled fruits shine!
Apple Wood Chips
The ideal choice for smoking poultry, wild game, pork, and various barbecue vegetables, our Apple Wood Chips give dishes a subtly sweet flavour and light aroma.
So, how can you use our Apple Wood Chips for smoking a show-stopping chicken with deliciously aromatic, delicate, and fruity notes? All you have to do is soak them in water for at least 30 minutes, put them directly onto your pre-heated charcoal or smoker box, and let the smoke pour out before placing your food on the grate.
Cherry Wood Chips
The perfect choice for giving your beef, poultry, pork, and fish a distinctive colour and flavour, if you’re looking for an intense sweet flavour with a deep aroma, look no further than our Cherry Wood Chips!
While these cherry wood chips are usually more indicated for barbecues with a signature intense aroma, you can be sure that they won’t overpower the natural smoky flavour of your grilled meats and fish.
Just like our Apple Wood Chips, putting Lekto’s Cherry Wood Chips to good use is incredibly easy, even for first-timers: Soak the chips in water for around 30 minutes, put them onto your hot charcoal or smoker box, and let the smoke pour out before adding your food onto the grate.
Both apple and cherry wood chips come in re-sealable, and lightweight Kraft paper packaging.
