The Story Behind our Apple Wood
Apple trees can be found throughout the United States. Everyone knows that apples themselves taste sweet and are perfect for pies, apple sauce, or simply on their own.
The wood from apple trees carries that same sweet flavor, but you’d have trouble eating the apple wood. Fortunately, when you cook with apple wood the incredible flavor gets absorbed into your food! The key to getting the best flavor is to choose apple wood that is dense, clean, and dry.
We ensure all of our apple wood meets these qualifications by putting it through the most rigorous drying process in the industry. After spending 48 hours in a kiln at 250 degrees, our apple wood has no bugs or mold, and it is dry and dense. The dry wood allows it to ignite quickly, and the density of the hard wood allows the wood to burn for longer periods of time. Say goodbye to musty flavors from damp wood, and start enjoying food cooked over apple wood the way it was meant to be!
When the apple arrives at our warehouse, our team hand selects and cuts the finest pieces of apple to be used as cooking wood splits. Each piece is cut to 8″ in length and will provide flavor for hours at a time in your cook.
Apple is a popular wood cooking wood because it adds a sweet aroma and flavor to whatever you choose to cook.
