Fruit Wood Chips For MES - What do you use?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So, I have tried using my own pruning's from my apple, cherry & peach tree's with limited success.

 

What do you use?

 

If using your own pruning's - Should you season them first?

How long? 

 

I have also tried Cowboy Brand Chips purchased from Lowe's with limited success. 

 

What do you use?

Please tell me your Fruit Wood hints, tips and tricks

 

Thanks,Ted

Most here abandon the chip loader in favor of the A-MAZE-N Products AMNPS Pellet Smoke Generator, with or without the Mail Box Mod. It depends on the model you have which direction you go...JJ

 

BTW...You are not the only Polish smoker here. Welcome...JJankoski

Ted,

 

I checked, and I have Pecan, Cherry and Apple Cowboy chips from Lowe's. I've not had any issues using them. The nut/fruit chips get used for the "in between smokes" like smoking Canadian Bacon.

 

That said ... As Chef JimmyJ said, I mainly use an Amazen Pellets 18" tube smoker with the mailbox mod for most of my smoking. This provides a long period of smoke for pulled pork. I also use it for cold smoking bacon.

Ted,

I use Apple, Cherry, Peach, Mable, and Pecan chips from cowboy in my 40 MES. I mix Apple and Pecan for most smoke ( Beef prime rib, pork spare ribs, and pork chops). I use the MES cold smoker attachment for my 40 MES.
