Having recently received a smoker for Christmas, I knew I would have to get some wood to smoke with. After doing research, I learned that wood chunks are MUCH better than wood chips because chips require soaking and burn up quickly. Wood chunks do not require soaking and smoke a good amount. Also with that research, I learned of which type of wood provides specific flavoring. I made my selections based on the following description from a well known BBQ site:
Apple: Slightly sweet but denser, fruity smoke flavor. The strongest flavor of all the fruitwoods. Beef, poultry, game birds, pork (particularly ham)
Pecan: Sweet and mild with a flavor similar to hickory but not as strong. Tasty with a subtle character an all-around superior smoking wood. Good for most things including poultry, beef, pork and cheese. Pecan is the best for that beautiful golden-brown turkey.
With that said, I decided on apple wood and pecan wood. After shopping around locally (and comparing to Amazon while shopping), I found that the wood chunks were cheaper than my local stores.
Unlike other reviewers, both bags of wood (apple and pecan 5-pounders) that I received were nice sized chunks and nowhere near the size of "chips" like they stated. Of course those reviews were back in 2010 and 2011. So maybe Weber improved the quality of their content over time.
