Smoking Wood Chips
Cut into an easy to use chunk format, these sticks are made from seasonal prunings from Kenyan trees grown without the use of harmful chemicals. 4 to 5 pieces will smoke for about an hour, and there is no need to soak prior to using.
How to use:
Place a small handful of Cookswell Smoking Wood in the removeable tray that catches the ashes below the liner. When hot coals fall through the holes, they will slowly smolder the wood to produce high-quality smoke for meats, veggies and more! Alternatively and for more smoke production, place a few sticks directly onto the coals in the oven, and cover with a bit of ash.
Remember to keep your oven clean if you also plan to use it for baking. The smoke buildup from each use will impart a smoky flavor to the other dishes that you prepare. Each bag is approximately 1kg in weight.
