Oak is the most commonly used commercial smoking wood in the UK, producing a heavy smoky flavour which is great for all red meats, heavy game, and pork. Itï¿½s also perfect with sausages or blended with cherry for smoking turkey. These very popular Oak wood chips are made especially for use in The PolyScience Smoking Gunï¿½ and are completely chemical-free. Theyï¿½re ground to the perfect consistency for smoking, smouldering slowly when ignited, and lasting for a long time. Theyï¿½re great for barbecuing too, just sprinkle them over the coals before or near the end of cooking to add delicious aromas to your food.
