Our double filet wood chunks can fit where does size matters for your cooker

DOES SIZE MATTER?

I’m sure you’ve had the experience of going into a store and locating the limited supply of wood chips and/or chunks offered, then look closer at the clear plastic bag and ask: Is this it?

It’s always interesting to realize what we are willing to accept versus what we really want.

My Team has spent a lot of time examining the products available in the wood chip line. Boy, have we learned a lot!

For instance, there seem to be two divisions with chip suppliers: those that manufacture wood chips as a waste product to another product line say cleaning agents, animal bedding, or flooring products. Then there are those that offer a product with a brand name on it that may be associated with a specific equipment manufacturer. Generally, that type of supplier is not the manufacturer of the product just simply a re-seller under a brand name. Thus, you can’t be sure what portion of the tree is actually in the bag and where the wood is coming from!

We still hold ourselves to a higher standard believing that a true cooking wood manufacturer should offer different variations in product size to work with the abundance of equipment lines available. That’s why we pride ourselves on being able to offer over 6 chip sizes and 4 chunk sizes. Like other food ingredients, why would you settle for only ground pepper when you can have the whole peppercorn as an option.

We are a food ingredient, a food flavor. Most of all, we are a COOKING WOOD manufacturer!

SMOKINLICIOUS TO THE WOOD RESCUE!!

Did you ever have the experience of buying something that you were really excited about only to get it home and realize that you didn’t have a clue how to even begin to operate it?

 

Well, a similar event happened with a national restaurant franchise that we were called in to assist. Here’s how it played out.

 

This particular Company was in the process of launching a wood-fired menu and had agreed to install Magikitch’n® charbroilers with the smoke box inserts http://www.magikitchn.com/PDFs/manuals/Series600/L80-104.pdf

 

Of course, they would be in need of a wood supplier to service ALL their locations. Initially, we worked with the test kitchen Chef in supplying samples that we felt had the potential to work with the unit. Unfortunately, as commonly can be the case, the size wood pieces sent didn’t seem to be maximizing the unit’s potential. The solution? HANDS ON!!

 

We immediately scheduled to be in the test kitchen some 36 hours later to work directly with the Chef in finding the perfect fit.

 

That’s how it works and that’s what we are all about! Service and knowledge like no other Company.

 

So, if you find yourself longing to bring in equipment that will provide for a wood-fired menu but you don’t want to spend months learning about cooking woods, seek us out! Or, if you’re in the equipment business and want to ensure the correct recommendation in wood size, type, and conditions, call us! Isn’t it nice to know that old fashioned customer service still exists?!

 

Dr. Smoke recommends having us properly size the smoking wood to the equipment prior to making large purchase decisions. We know the sizes that work best in almost all equipment. Wood rescues are hard!
