OAK

Oak Cooking Wood

Oak cooking wood is one of the most widely used hardwoods available and is a go-to choice for any chef looking for a kiln-dried wood experience. Oak adds a subtle smoky flavor perfect for any dish without becoming too bold or overpowering, making it ideal for all types of red meat, pork, poultry or vegetables.

APPLE

Apple Cooking Wood

Cooking with apple wood is as American as apple pie or Johnny Appleseed. It provides a sweet, apple smoked flavor to your food and is a crowd favorite when cooking pork, poultry, seafood, and lamb.
ORDER NOW

PECAN

Pecan Cooking Wood

When it comes to barbecue cooking, no wood has been more trusted throughout the years as pecan. With a similar taste to hickory without hickory’s overpowering bold flavor, this wood offers a smoky taste perfectly suited for meats such as ribs and poultry.

HICKORY

Hickory Cooking Wood

Cooking experts love our hickory smoking chunks for their distinct crackle and robust taste. Because hickory cooking wood gives an overpowering smoky flavor very quickly, chefs often pair hickory with lighter cooking woods for a more even, balanced taste.

Testimonials

Superb experience with every aspect of the company. I ordered the smoking chunks variety pack for my husband's birthday. We have had some delicious food prepped with it on other occasions and we look forward to using our own now. The delivery was expedient (same day as ordered - in December no less) and customer service follow up the same day to boot. We earlier purchased their specially treated firewood and have enjoyed immensely the warmth provided by CE fires with family and friends. FYI, I never realized how nasty the firewood from the grocery store is until I used CE. It is so refreshing to deal with a company that specializes not only in providing superior products, but also in providing superior service. It really is a novelty to have something done correctly the first time, and to have it done with such quality.

We ordered the woods chunks to use with our smoker. We decided to try them this Thanksgiving to add some flavor to our smokedturkey! Wow! The taste was amazing and the comments from family were awesome! We will use it ever time we smoke meat!

Great woods. Kiln dried definitely makes a difference. Strong smoke if you use it with charcoal for cooking. Cleaner burning if you use it for heat.

I just wanted to take a minute to share my feedback. First, the quality of the wood is fantastic! Cut and split perfectly and dried to perfection. Second, I screwed up my order and bought the cooking logs instead of the smaller splits. I thought maybe it was something that happened on their end, but no it was me. I called to straighten it out and they offered to ship me two boxes of wood for free! You can't beat customer service like that! I will be buying all of my wood form them. Highly recommend!

A rare experience. Today, I was lit up by the kindness of a company that creates a great product. I wrote an earlier review saying after one fire I can say amazing wood, expensive but totally worth it if only the huge flood this week had not washed the box away. Today a new box was delivered to me by courier. I didn't ask. It was just given. That is extraordinary. Thank you for a rare kind of considerate customer service that accompanies a product that does what it says. And now back to open wood fire cooking. Wow.

Cutting Edge might be known for their firewood but their wood chunks for cooking might be even better! The chunks are much cleaner and more solid than anything I've used before, and produce a great smoke flavor on my Big Green Egg cooks. This is an easy way to take my smoked meat to a whole new level.

This place is my #1 go to for cooking wood, I saw an ad on facebook for them one day when I was in the middle of a cook and figured Id give them a try. My first order was for some 8" maple splits that I order to smoke a couple racks of Lamb ribs they have great prices and when you receive your order it comes in a box that says Cutting edge on it, maybe 3-5 days I recieved a hand written postcard from a gentleman named Leroy Hite who was sending me to tell me how much they appreciated my business! Every since then Ive given them my business for all of my cooking, smoking, and firewood needs 10/10 you guys rock and you have a return customer for life! I live in Michigan and they are in Georgia, they waisted no time getting me my order! I really appreciate you guys!

What makes our Cooking Wood special?

You can find cooking wood just about anywhere – from your own backyard to hardware stores and everything in between. The only problem is, most cooking wood is actually pretty bad for cooking!

Musty wood will add a musty flavor to your food and completely ruin an otherwise perfect meal. Wet cooking wood will reduce the temperature of the fire every time you add a piece. Instead of cooking your food, the fire must burn away the water. Seasoned cooking wood is also problematic – it will almost always contain some mold and fungus, which you don’t want for cooking.

Fortunately, Cutting Edge Firewood delivers and ships the best cooking wood available. It has never been easier to source quality cooking firewood – the wood comes to you!

There are several reasons our cooking wood is the best:

  • We only source quality hardwoods that are ideal for cooking, such as hickory, cherry, apple, and pecan cooking wood.
  • We harvest the wood and put it directly into the kiln for drying. This means our cooking wood never sits around decaying and will therefore be more dense. This allows the wood to burn longer and hotter. In fact, one restaurant found our cooking wood lasted 40% longer than his previous supplier!
  • Our drying process is extremely rigorous – each piece of cooking wood spends 48 hours in a 250 degree oven. It comes out extremely dry and with no bugs, mold, or fungus.
  • There is never musty flavor from our wood because it is so dry.
  • You can taste the difference – our dry hardwoods provide excellent flavor and will improve anything you cook.

The best way to experience the difference is to try our cooking wood yourself. Place an order today and be prepared for the best cooking wood available. Period.
