WHAT FOODS GO BEST WITH EACH TYPE OF WOOD?
Selecting the best wood for your culinary venture is like pairing wine with a meal. The flavor nuances imparted by the wood can make all the difference.
For those drawn to smoky flavor, hickory wood is an excellent choice for red meat dishes, especially for briskets, steaks and burgers. If you're craving a touch of sweetness, apple wood and cherry wood are popular fruit woods that are ideal for pork and poultry.
Meanwhile, pecan wood is versatile and pairs beautifully with most meats. Oak wood, especially post oak, is commonly used for classic BBQ wood dishes.
WHY IS COOKING WITH WOOD BETTER THAN GAS?
For millennia, humankind has been drawn to the primal allure of cooking over an open flame. The practice of smoking meat, in particular, has been a tradition cherished across cultures, turning simple cuts into delicacies over hours of slow and steady heat. Gas might offer convenience, but wood, especially our ultra high quality cooking wood, evokes an experience that goes beyond the plate.
The enticing aroma of natural wood smoldering, combined with the connectivity of sharing a fire-cooked meal, traces back to our ancient roots. Beyond the sensory appeal, wood imparts a depth of flavor unmatched by gas. Each wood type, from hickory to apple to pecan, adds its own unique touch, enriching the food and making every bite an aromatic journey.
WHAT MAKES CUTTING EDGE COOKING WOOD SUPERIOR?
While you can find cooking wood just about anywhere, most of it is actually pretty bad for you and for your food.
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. Seasoned cooking wood will almost always contain some mold and fungus which adds additional chemicals and carcinogens to your food. Green cooking wood will add a bitter taste to your food and reduce the temperature of your coal base.

We harvest the firewood for cooking specifically and have a special drying process. This means our cooking wood never sits around decaying and will therefore be denser. 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 – It comes out extremely dry and with no bugs, mold, or fungus.
There is never a 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 from the list of premium firewood options today and be prepared for the best cooking wood available. Period.
WHAT SIZE WOOD DO YOU NEED?
Selecting the right size of wood is key for optimal grilling and smoking. For those with pizza ovens, our pizza wood provides consistent heat, ensuring your pizza has that delectable wood-fired touch. It also comes in three different sizes (full-size, mid-size, and miniature) so that you can ensure an optimal burn in your specific pizza oven.
If you prefer a prolonged smoking session, our smoking wood chunks are your best bet, as they maintain steady heat and emit a continuous smoky flavor. For grander affairs or larger grilling apparatuses, our 16-inch cooking logs are the way to go.
Regardless of the size, whether you’re using wood splits or wood logs, each piece from Cutting Edge is dried to the perfect moisture content, ensuring a cleaner burn and pronounced flavors. And remember, while wood chips might be common, it's larger cuts like chunks, logs, and splits that provide that genuine, unbeatable wood-fired taste.
