Below are descriptions of each with flavor recommended food pairings. However,
BBQ is all about what you like.
Be sure to experiment with different flavor parings and wood blends
to find out what works best for you.
Apple is one of the most popular flavors of wood for grilling or smoking in the United States. Apple wood produces a mild yet delicate smoke with a hint of sweetness to add a very distinctive flavor to meats grilled or smoked with it. Apple is great for pork, fish, poultry and light meat game birds.
Hickory is the most commonly used wood for smoking. Hickory has a sweet to strong flavor that most people identify with pork. But Hickory is also wonderful for smoking beef, chicken, turkey, and other poultry.
Mesquite, a long-time favorite wood in the South, has a strong, sweet, hard flavor. Mesquite is great with rich, full-bodied meats like beef, duck, chicken and lamb. It can also be used to flavor seafood and vegetables.
Nothing says nature like cracking open a pecan. And nothing is quite as sweet as a pecan pie. Pecan woods is just as satisfying with it's tangy and sweet flavor.
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.
Piñon Mini Logs are not intended for cooking but are ideal for burning in your fire pit, chiminea, or campfire. Imagine harnessing the nostalgia of childhood camp-outs or of cowboys riding the range whenever you want. The natural oils within the fibers of the Piñon wood create an aromatic experience that will transport your senses to another time and place.
Plus, that great pine smell is a natural insect repellent!
At WESTERN, we recommend starting BBQ fires in a natural way to avoid that lighter fluid taste. Red Hot Fire Starters are the best way to get your fire going without harsh chemicals.
Fire Starters are simply made of high quality wax and sawdust. They are formed into a dense shape to promote a longer burn time to make sure your fire is burning well before the starter is finished.
And because they are weather resistant, Red Hot Fire Starters are perfect for camping trips to get your fire going the easy way.
