WESTERN Cooking Wood Chunks can be used in dozens of different types of grills to add that wonderful wood smoke flavor to your barbeque dishes. Chunks are great to use with charcoal for added flavor, but for best results and completely natural cooking, use only 100% wood chunks. Unlike Mesquite, Oak wood is very mild and neutral and is a great all around wood for meat smoking. It’s great for adding a mellow smoke flavor to any entrée or side dish. The balanced flavor is distinctive but not overpowering and is good for sausages, beef, lamb, seafood and vegetables.
