Smoking Chips are a quick and convenient way to smoke food by using a stovetop, home smoker, or gas or charcoal braai. Due to their size, they smoulder for a shorter time to produce a delicious smoky flavour.
My Butchers Block products are proudly South African, which means that only local and ethically sourced wood is used and that all of our products are made by locals too. The Smoke Shavings is a great gift as it fits the bill of being on-trend and useful. It’s also perfect for those family braais.
How do I use my chips?
Soak your wooden chips / shavings in water for about 30 minutes. This generates steam that adds moisture and heat to the smoking process. This method also prolongs burning time. The key with wood chips & shavings is to deny the wood of oxygen so it smoulders and smokes.
What Smoking Wood Shavings Should You Use?
Wood flavours are a personal choice of taste so to make it easier, but here is a brief description of our flavours:Smoked Chips – 500g
Beechwood Smoke Chips – Our Beechwood Smoke Chips is a light, mild hardwood with a slight nutty flavour and a subtle companion to more delicate flavoured foods. Ideal for red meat, fish, nuts and cheeses. Add a refreshing feel to your plate.
Oak Wood Smoke Chips – The Oak Wood Chips has a heavier smoke flavour and is great for red meat and game; this is probably the best wood for steak. It gives your meat a lovely colour and a deep smoky flavour.
