Why Cooking with Wood Splits is Better Than Logs

Ever wondered why we prefer to use wood splits for smoking over cooking over whole logs and even charcoal here at Cutting Edge?

Round logs have their advantages, but cooking wood splits will better serve the purposes of 90% of pitmasters for several reasons. Smoking wood splits are easier to work with, more flexible, and deliver a better quality burn on most fires.

There’s nothing like experimenting with different chunks and splits with so many woods and flavor pairings to choose from. Take your game to the next level and become the grillmaster you were born to be with the help of Cutting Edge.

Want proof that wood splits for smoking are the best choice? Here’s what you need to know.

Cooking Wood

They Light Up Fast

Don’t spend the day struggling to light your fire. Buy wood splits for smoking, and you’ll have a roaring fire in minutes. While whole logs do burn for longer, they also take a lot longer to get burning. Save time and use wood splits for your smoker so you’re not frantically trying to get a fire going.

Backyard BBQ

They Put Your Meat to the Sizzle

Even the amateur pitmaster knows that cooking up chicken, beef, brisket, ribs, or big game requires a lot of heat and smoke. Wood splits for smoking burn hotter because there’s more organic matter and a higher density. BBQ wood splits are the only solution for maximum heat and faster cooks. Get to searing and charring and add your unique griller’s touch to every fatty, juicy part of your meats without burning using premium Cutting Edge wood splits for smoking.

Cooking Wood

They Provide Consistent Cooks Every Time

Don’t know whether to add a whole log or a few cooking wood splits to your next barbecue? Whole logs can do incredible things. The slow-burn effect works perfectly for pork shoulders and lamb shanks. But for most meats, a kiln-dried, wood split will get the results you want faster. Smoking wood splits burn from the heart of the log rather than from the bark. By consuming organic matter quickly and evenly without further assistance, you guarantee a clean flame and an even, consistent burn.

Which Cooking Wood Is Best For You?

Our cooking wood splits are the perfect size for people looking to cook with miniature logs – each one is about 8 inches long and cut to fit into larger Kamado smokers (Think Big Green Egg, Kamado Joe and kettle grills), other smaller smokers, vertical smokers, and offset smokers. This means you can get the best cooking wood available, now in a smaller package.

We are passionate about great fires, but we aren’t the only ones! Here is what other people have to say about our Cutting Edge Kiln Dried Firewood:
The wood burns clean and hot, and lights easily. It's the right size for small pizza ovens like the Ooni. The customer service and communication is terrific and the wood arrives in a heavyweight box that's easy to move.
