BBQ Smoking Wood Chunks


Old blog updated with Winter 2021 prices


What was once just ...


... for Americans, Aussies and South Africans and a few hardy Brits BBQ-ing with an offset smoker is now popular here all year round. 20 years ago I was one of the very few supplying a small but very keen group of low an' slow cooks.


There's quite a bit of choice now but I hope you'll give my woods a go.


My best seller mixed box of Apple Oak and Cherry ...


... is good for new & experienced smokers as it offers a variety at a discount from per kg prices.


Of the three woods Oak is the cheapest followed by Cherry and then Apple. The Oak subsidises the more expensive fruit woods so if you had just Apple and Cherry it would be more expensive.


It's not sold by weight but there is about 14 - 15 kgs of wood - 2021 £46 delivered


There is an option to spec up these boxes with a bag of Hickory or Mesquite or Pecan on top for same delivery price or my other woods listed below.



I usually put in a chunk or two of other woods to try


Last year I introduced a starter ...


... pack which currently has 2kgs of Oak 1.5 kgs Cherry 1 kgs Olive 1 kg Hickory or Pecan if availableand 4 chunks of 3 other English Woods for a delivered price of £32.


Imported and consequently ...


... more exy than my Hampshire Woods are Hickory Olive Mesquite and Pecan - more info below.



In addition the big 3 English woods above I have Ash, Beech, Birch, Olive, Maple, Walnut and Sweet Chestnut with occasional Alder and Plum - prices. New for 2021 Pear Post Oak and Hazel


If you want something bespoke ...


... rather than the mixed box you can have whatever mix you like. These orders I tend to put in foodbags in 1.5 kg quantities.


Four 1.5 kg bags with a few other extras fill a box nicely and should last large number of cooks. If you have a urge for a English wood not listed above like Elm which hasn't proved popular I can try and get it for you.

Hickory is the most popular ...


... wood from the other side of the pond . I've been importing it for a few years now trying to improve the quality of the wood without making it too exy but even so with freight costs and import duty it's always going to cost more than local woods.


I tend to sell it in 1 kg and 1.5 kg food bags.



Exchange rates and ever increasing shipping costs are making the imported woods around twice the price of UK ones - Summer 2019 price is 6 quid per kg ... keeping this price for 2021

By popular demand ...


... and after a couple of years trying to get the right stuff at a sensible price I can finally offer Mesquite and Pecan. The current batch of Pecan is a similar size to the Hickory but the Mesquite is now in bbq chips as pic below.


I'm selling the Mesquite by volume - 2 litres for £6 in a quality reusable plastic bag that costs me a quid so should be good!

I'm really not the person to ask advice on cooking ...


... as I just sell the drugs, so to speak!


There are so many really knowledgeable people on the British BBQ Society and Country Woodsmoke Forums that I strongly advise you to have a look at both - the latter on FB - you can index search the subject you want from types of meat to where the next competition.


Email me Paul if you want any more information or to discuss your order
