Wood Chips Buying Guide

Smoking Gun Wood Chips -A Buying Guide

Smoking is a great way to add a unique flavour to your cooking.

But if you want to add smokiness to your dishes without having to mark or flame your food, a Smoking Gun™ combined with flavoured wood chips can give your meals a beautiful aroma, and bags of additional flavour, without the addition of any chemicals.

If you’re not sure where to start, the table below should inspire you; with details of which wood chips to select in order to achieve the perfect smokiness to any of your meals.

Introducing The Smoking Gun

Our 2 Smoking Guns The PolyScience® Smoking Gun® Pro and the Sage® by Heston Blumenthal Smoking Gun are the quickest and most convenient way to apply cool natural smoke to your food and the ability to expose food to smoke without heat opens new ways to create exciting flavours and unexpected combinations.

Traditionally, smoking was only possible using a smoker and a process which uses both heat and longer smoking times. For those looking for the flavour of traditional smoking but without the need for its preserving qualities the perfect solution to creating excited flavours to your dishes is with a smoking gun and wood chips. This technique leads to a lighter infusion or subtle finish of smoke; something which allows for quite unusual approaches to smoking.

We’re pleased to stock both the The PolyScience® Smoking Gun® Pro and the Sage® by Heston Blumenthal Smoking Gun, as well as a glass cloche for smoking and a range of differently flavoured wood chips. However the only limit is your imagination and whilst you might find that not everything benefits from being smoked, some foods and indeed drinks are the perfect pairing. Don’t only be limited by woodchips either, for instance earl grey tea mixed with oak wood chips gives a beautifully light infusion to salmon.

In Short the main benefits of Wood Chips are:

  • Exciting flavours
  • Simple technique
  • No need for a smoker
  • Fast ‘smoking’ time
