At SmokinLicious®, we've taken the hard work out of selecting wood chunks that are appropriate for smoking foods. Wood selection is essential to completing what is known as the barbecue triangle: heat, smoke and time. In particular, we pride ourselves on that fact that we are able to offer eight wood types that are considered the base for smoking: Wild Cherry, with its mild, sweet/tart flavoring; Sugar Maple, with a mellow, sweet flavour; Red and White Oak, earthy flavors, with Red imparting the strongest smoke undertone; Ash, an exceptional hardwood that is a fast burner, has a light flavor which allows it to easily mix with other hardwoods; Hickory(northern), a popular wood which imparts a heavier, bacon-type flavoring; Alder(Eastern), also know as Birch, a delicate flavor with just a hint of sweet. American Beech, a variety of White Oak with medium intensity.
Our wood chunks are derived from our special hand-filet process which is offered in two different filet sizes: Single or Double Filet. What is fileting? This is our customized splitting process that actually looks at the wood grain and then produces a special cut or "filet" of the wood. The Single Filet results in wood pieces that are approximately 3"x4" in width with a length 4". The Double Filet produces wood pieces that are approximately 2"X2" in width and height, with a length of 3". By providing the two distinct filet cuts, SmokinLicious® is allowing the user to match the wood more accurately to their specific cooking equipment.Match your Cooker. In addition to our Single and Double Filet wood chunks, we offer a larger chunk Wood Blocks, which includes wood piece sizes 4"X 4"X6" see Wood Blocks.
We take great care to ensure that our woods, after fileting, have a higher moisture content. We even go as far as to take a moisture reading of the wood at the time of packaging your order to be sure you are getting the freshest product available!
As always, please store your unused wood in a cool, dry location making sure to allow the wood to breathe. The best way to ensure good air circulation is to keep the original carton open, punching some holes on all sides of the box for proper ventilation.
For your convenience, we offer cardboard boxes of our select SmokinLicious ® Gourmet Wood Chunks. They are available in three sizes: small , large, and Serious . As always, in your choice of woods: Wild Cherry, Red Oak, White Oak, Sugar Maple, Ash, Hickory(northern), Alder(Eastern), American Beech or a mixture of woods.
To specify your wood selections for a mixture, please type the woods with your phone number in the shopping cart area! Remember, you may select 2 woods for a small and large carton, and 3 woods for the Serious carton. Please note: we currently are sold out of Alder!

Whether you prefer a wood-fired oven, grill, or smoker, efficiency should be the key consideration. Higher quality materials, insulation, heat retention, and radiant heat, result in more efficient function of the appliance. Likely the most important consideration though, is the type of fuel you plan to use in the appliance. That is where efficiency takes on a whole new meaning.
Cooking on an appliance with thin metal walls and without appropriate insulation means valuable heat is lost to the air. In the long run, that means more expense to you as you will have to keep adding fuel during the course of the cooking process. Cookers with well insulated heavy metal, brick, clay, or ceramic housing retain the radiant heat which results in better cooking outcome and less fuel cost.
So why do we call our product Charwood? In short, because our product is not standard charcoal. Our method of production is based on the Japanese direct method which removes pyroligneous acid during the charcoal making process. The difference is, when burning, there are almost no stimulating smells or smoke. We produce our Charwood in small batches, carbonizing at temperatures between 400 and 700 degrees Celsius. The Charwood is then smothered using a non-chemical procedure to cool it down. Plus, we produce a wood specific charwood for those that understand that every component used in wood-fired grilling, smoking, and cooking affects the outcome of overall taste in the food. As with ALL our products, we manufacture our Charwood with premium, heartwood that is 100% bark-free, not from recycled or waste wood by-products.
We are thrilled to introduce our wood-specific CHARWOOD! We are offering this product in a 3-pack with each bag weighing approximately 5 lbs. You select your 3 choices from 9 hardwood options: Alder/Ash/Beech/Hickory/Mixture/Red Oak/Sugar Maple/White Oak/Wild Cherry. Simply note your 3 choices with your telephone listing where indicated in the shopping cart.
