Flavor is good, but chips too small,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Steven Raichlen Best of Barbecue Smoking Wood Chips for Beef (Lawn & Patio)
I got these chips to use with a side firebox style smoker. The box lasted for an 8-hour smoke which was good. However, the chips are very hard to use as they are very small, and sometimes only slightly bigger than a toothpick. When you soak them, they last a little longer, of course, but even then, when you throw them on hot coals, they burn up pretty quickly, and the smoke for flavoring on each handful doesn't last long. Which, if you don't want to risk over-smoking you meat, may be a good thing, but if you don't want to be constantly adding chips every hour to your firebox either, than this is a bad thing.
I would not purchase these again. I would prefer bigger chunks which would last longer and smoke longer at a time. If you want some quick smoke flavor to a traditional grilling of 20-30 minutes, then this might be good to impart some good flavor. Just not for a smoker where you are smoking for 6+ hours.
