Top Customer Reviews
Apple: Slightly sweet but denser, fruity smoke flavor. The strongest flavor of all the fruitwoods. Beef, poultry, game birds, pork (particularly ham)
Pecan: Sweet and mild with a flavor similar to hickory but not as strong. Tasty with a subtle character an all-around superior smoking wood. Good for most things including poultry, beef, pork and cheese. Pecan is the best for that beautiful golden-brown turkey.
With that said, I decided on apple wood and pecan wood. After shopping around locally (and comparing to Amazon while shopping), I found that the wood chunks were cheaper than my local stores.
Unlike other reviewers, both bags of wood (apple and pecan 5-pounders) that I received were nice sized chunks and nowhere near the size of "chips" like they stated. Of course those reviews were back in 2010 and 2011. So maybe Weber improved the quality of their content over time.
Bag weighed in at 5 pounds 6 oz.
The bag says it's 360 cu. in, not really sure how that is measured since it's a bunch of chunks of wood.
My bag had one large piece. a couple pieces about 2/3 the size of a can of soda. Then there was a series of medium size pieces and then a set of small chips.
Overall it's a good mix and you should get a 2-3 good smokes with the bag.
Around here we can't get Pecan wood in a bag, so this is a good value.
The wood was plenty dry and ready to use. There was one piece that had bark on it that I had to remove.,but that's to be expected. I opened another brand that I had that was Apple wood and it had 5 pieces that I had to remove the bark from.
If you're looking for a ready to use bag with little prep and a decent smoke this is the one to try. I'll be back for more...
The pieces are just the right size too. No "chips" as some have found.
I'm smoking some brined trout as I write this, and can say that the aroma is great--much better than the oak that I've been using. [Oak is too strong for fish and poultry, I've learned. I have a ton of oak for the wood stove...it's good for beef.]
There is a nice reference chart on the back of the bag recommending different wood for various meats. I'm likely to try a variety from Weber in the future. Cherry, Pecan, Mesquite, etc
The 5# bag is a good size unless you're smoking every week and need a jumbo quantity. I'm probably using 1/2 pound for 5 large trout. Thumbs up!
FYI, wood CHUNKS (not chips) are best for smoking meat in a smoker. If you are using a gas or standard grill, then chips might be better for you.
