Came home from work today and had my first order of smoke wood from Fruita Wood Chunks sitting on my front porch. Fruita is one of the largest and most popular online smoke wood retailers. I normally get smoke wood from local wood vendors or chain stores like Lowes or Home Depot, but I’ve heard a lot of really good things about Fruita and the quality and selection of wood they sell. They offer free shipping and sell their wood in 5 1/2″ – 6″ “mini splits”, 12″ “splits” or “chunks”. I’ve smoked with a lot of different woods but one I haven’t tried yet is peach wood. I’ve read a lot about the smoke quality of well seasoned peach wood and apparently there are a lot of comp guys that prefer it over any other kind of wood. I ordered myself a 15 lb box of peach chunks and it was sitting on my front porch within 3 days.
I opened the box and I’ve got to tell you, it is the freshest smoke wood I think I’ve ever smelt. If you glance over their website you’ll quickly see that they take pride in the quality of their wood and they do a great job of telling you how to properly store it and what foods to pair their wood with. I’ll be cooking with it over the next month or so, so check back soon for my thoughts. Disclaimer: I am not being compensated by Fruita for this post and have no affiliation with them whatsoever.
