Smoking With Wood Tips – How to Choose the Right Wood for Smoking Meat

Smoking With Wood Tips

There are different types of wood to use for smoking bbq. I like to choose a seasoned wood chunk.

When I use charcoal as a heat source I like a seasoned wood chunk for flavor. When cooking on a stick burner, use a seasoned wood split for smoking.

Smoking With Wood Tips

Comments 7

  1. Hi Malcolm,

    Love your videos. When it comes to grilling, I use your recipes exclusively. I have a question about smoking woods. Some say to soak the wood before using it on the coals. I notice you use dry wood in your cooks. What are you thoughts on soaking wood chunks before the smoke?

    Thanks,
    Jerry F.

  2. I always soaked the wood chips, but never the wood chunks. Now I won’t soak the chips any more. Thanks for the tip.

      It all depends on your smoker – you add it as needed. When your fire burns out you add new charcoal as needed and you add new wood as needed to keep that light, blue smoke.

  3. Hey Malcolm!

    I have a Masterbuilt electric smoker which you may be familiar with. I am unsure how often I should be adding wood chips during my cook?
    For example I bought a 20lb packer brisket that I did for Halloween and followed your burnt ends process. I added chips on the hour for the first 5 hours of the cooking process and then stopped. It turned out to be excellent but I’m not sure if I’m short changing myself by not adding enough?

    Thank you for all of your expertise. Happy Thanksgiving!

    (I’m doing something like your cajun smoked turkey as I type this …. hope I hit the sweet spot for smoke today)
