Does any one use these much for smoking--and if so what flavor do they impart?
All citris is supposed to be good. I haven't tried it personnally (they don't grow well in Connecticut) but they are supposed to be really good. I have dreamed about doing a chicken or turkey with Orange or lemon wood!
Orange - A tangy, citrus smoke. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Orange gives food a golden color. Produces a nice mild smoky flavor. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.
Grapefruit - Produces a nice mild smoky flavor. Excellent with beef, pork, fish and poultry.
Lemon - A tangy, citrus smoke. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of
fruitiness. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.
Lime - Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.
I have never used it myself before however with chicken or possibly fish I would guess that it would be awesome.
We burned some when I was growing up and did have a wonderful smell to it.
I have used peach before but did not care for it. Just wonder if the citrus would be too powerful.
Maybe use some but mixed with a different wood mixed with it too
I use orange and lemon both work well. Try it you maybe suprised.
I haven't seen it sold online anywhere or I'd get me some. Seems like it'd be awsome on poutry!
Here you go Deb, they also have lemon.
I've been looking for that!
I ordered some ASAP! Man shipping from there is high!
I ordered Apricot Wood Chunks (I'm out until spring-fall trimmings), Nectarine Wood Chunks, Orange Wood Chunks and Lemon Wood Chunks WooHoo! I can't wait!
Debi's dancing around the room
Thanks Ron! BIG HUGS!!!
I have used grapefruit and several varity of orange tree woods. Very nice on poultry and fish. Not so much on beef. I would personally want a stronger wood for it.
You are very welcome Debi! Glad I could help you out for a change. Let me know how the woods work, I've always been interested in the nectarine and orange woods.
We help each other!
I can't wait to try this stuff! I'l definatelty let you know.
