Charcoal Companion® aromatic wood chunks are essential for adding a rich wood smoke flavor to pizzas cooked on a charcoal grill. Adding wood chunks to lit coals will turn up the heat and dramatically reduce cook times for your pizza. They also burn safer and hotter than standard briquettes. They work wonders in our PizzaQue® Pizza Kit for Kettle Grills!
Hickory is one of the most commonly used smoking woods, as it goes well with a variety of ingredients. Hickory wood chips can be used with any type of meat, but it really shines with pork.
