You can smell the sweetness as soon as you open the bag. Again, it's a rather mild flavor, but you can definitely taste it on whatever is in your grill. I would suggest starting with a small batch on your first attempt and add more if needed the next time to get that perfect flavor. As with any wood chips, you can easily overdo it and end up with food that is completely masked in a strong smoke flavor.
I see some people saying they do not soak prior to grilling and some that do. 99% of the time, I soak my wood chips (at least 15 minutes) prior to grilling. This helps avoid a strong, burnt smokey flavor that may come from the dry chips being directly on the heat. It also allows the chips to smoke longer which is good, especially if you're slow smoking some ribs or a pork roast.
I've done the chips both in a small tray and directly on the coals. It depends on how long I plan on smoking the meat. If I'm doing a batch of ribs that will take a few hours, I'm more inclined to put the chips in a small tray with some water and allow them to slowly heat up and smoke, whereas if I'm just trying to hit something with a quick batch of smoke for less than an hour I'll put the pre-soaked wood chips directly on the coals.
If you are new to this, trial and error is a big part. Try new and different things until you get the perfect meal. Once you figure it out, stick with it and in no time you'll have people talking about how great your food is.
I still keep a batch of hickory wood chips for when they're needed, but I would definitely recommend these apple wood chips to anybody looking to add a little sweetness to their next grilling or smoking experience.
The Weber package is 3 pounds which gives plenty of chips for lots of meals. At this price, I can also buy a few other varieties (apple, hickory, cherry) so I'm not stuck with one.
If you're not sure what variety of wood chips to get, you can't go wrong with Pecan for chicken, fish, salmon, or pork. Pecan has a slightly sweet smoke, but more subtle than apple or cherry. If I want to play it safe and be sure I'll like the result, I use the pecan chips. If I'm feeling a little more experimental, I mix pecan with apple or cherry. You really can't go wrong with any of these.
