TOP 3 Brands for Wood Chips, Chunks, and Pellets

If you've been into one of our stores you know that we carry a wide selection of wood chips and chunks. We consistently get questions and inquiries about advice on what to use for smoking, that's why we wanted to give you the inside scoop and tell you what our most popular wood chips, chunks, and pellets are!

One of the most popular flavours is the True North Cherry because it provides a great complementary sweetness to your meats.

Another fan favourite are the BBQr's Delight Pellets. These unique pellets start out as Jack Daniels whiskey barrels and are compressed into pellets for easy use and flavour. Sprinkle these right over hot charcoal or place a handful in a smoker box over your gas burner for heavenly smoke flavour. Be sure to keep these pellets as dry as possible - they'll turn to mush if they get too wet.

Other heavy hitters in the market are the Weber Wood Chunks. Aside from the great reviews from our beloved customers, our staff members use this atop of our Buffalo Charcoal all the time and we haven't been let down.

Please don't hesitate to come into our stores and talk to an expert if you have any questions about our personal favourites, or perhaps about what charcoal-and-wood combination would be best for you. If there's one thing our experts love about this business, it's helping new smokers begin their barbecuing journey... because, well, we were all beginners once before.
