This is a question that is hotly debated by all cooks from the professional to the back yard enthusiast. Everything from the
species of wood to the moisture content and what is being cooked are important factors in making the final decision. It all adds
to the fun of cooking with wood and determining your favorite combination of meat, wood and method. A general guideline is to
use good quality hardwoods that have been kiln dried to a moisture content of 15% or less and have an aromatic quality that
matches the food you are preparing. Smokers tend to like a higher moisture content and strongly aromatic woods like hickory
and mesquite, while those cooking more delicate and milder meats, poultry and fish will select dryer, milder woods like oak,
cherry, pecan and fruitwoods. And we haven’t even gotten into sauces, marinades and rubs.

Southern Fuelwood offers kiln dried Oak, Hickory, Cherry, Pecan and other southern hardwoods in a variety of cuts, splits,
chips, chunks and grilling woods in bags, boxes or bulk pallets. Contact us for your specific needs
