Box of Mini Wood Chips
This gift boxed assortment of four different smoking woods is a taster pack of different flavours, matching a wide range of food flavour profiles. Ideal as a gift or bundled with a hot smoker, the box presents an opportunity to experiment with smoky flavours in your hot smoking projects.
The chip size is our ‘mini’ version, so the box is a great starting point for hot smoking in a Camerons or similar hot smoker, or for use with a smoking gun.
Included in the box are 4 flavours: Oak, Apple, Cherry and Alder – in order of smoke strength. Oak is a great match for red meats and oily fish such as mackerel, whilst Apple and Cherry are more mellow medium flavours great with chicken, gamebirds, pork and veg. Alder is a more subtle flavour suitable for fish, seafood and also great with vegetables.
Each flavour is packaged in recyclable cellophane bags with a weight of approximately 200g. Based on a handful of chips per cooking session, this gives you approximately 8 to 10 uses.
The smaller chip size is typically around 1 to 3mm in size and is ideal for offset heat conduction – ie through a stainless steel base or other, rather than directly on an open BBQ fire. They can however be used with our smoker box and are particularly suited to gas BBQs, For charcoal, we’d normally recommend our larger 6mm chips where the box is placed directly on hot coals.
Produced specifically for food use, the chips are 100% pure natural wood.
The same flavours as well as further options are also available separately in larger 500g packs – see our mini chips section:
Oak – a strong smoke flavour which works with most types of food including fish and red meats
Apple – a medium strength smoke flavour, ideal for white meats and poultry
Cherry – slightly sweeter than the apple, cherry is an ideal partner of game and poultry
Alder – a light hardwood with a mellow, subtle flavour, excellent with fish, chicken and pork
