Enjoy the distinct maple smoke flavor from Western Premium BBQ Products. Take your cookout to the next level with our Maple BBQ Cooking Chunks. They are made from real heat-treated maple wood to deliver a robust flavor to every meal. Wood chunks are a great way to add texture to the taste of your next barbequed meal. The next time you’re thinking of making smoked meat for the family, add some Maple BBQ Cooking Chunks to the grilling process. Be the cookout hero your friends and family deserve. Our BBQ Cooking Chunks are easy to use, and they work on charcoal grills, open fires, and large smokers. To use our wood chunks for smoking in a charcoal grill, load your grill with lump charcoal. Light the charcoal using your preferred method; however, we would recommend you avoid using lighter fluid so your meat retains the natural maple smoke flavor. Several minutes prior to cooking, add 3-5 dry maple cooking chunks on a standard grill so they have time to smoke. Add your meat to the grill, close the lid, and smoke until you achieve that great maple smoke flavor. Continue to add wood cooking chunks every 20-30 min. during your cooking process. Make sure to add more charcoal around every hour to keep your cooking chunks smoking. If you’re using wood chunks for smoking your meats on a gas or electric grill, place dry cooking chunks in a pyramid on top of a solid fire starter leaving an edge exposed. Light the fire starter. Let the cooking chunks burn for 15-20 min. with the lid and all vents open. If you desire a milder flavor, cook longer. Close the vents and lids, and wait for the flames to subside. Spread the cooking chunks evenly on the grill, and add your food. Close the lid and let the meat absorb that delicious maple smoke flavor. If you’re using a smoker instead of the grill, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for smoking meat. Keep adding our maple chunks throughout the smoking process until you’ve achieved the flavor you desire.
