I went to to look for cherry and apple wood. For the Amerique smoker, should I get the "briquettes" which seem to be about 1.5 oz of pressed wood, or just go with the oddly shaped chunks ? Advantage of the bricks I guess is consistent size, but I wonder about what they add to it, plus shipping is much less. Chunks have higher shipping charges. Or I guess I can head into Houston to barbeques galore and buy some local, I remember the apple wood, but not the cherry.

By the way I have Hickory for pork/brisket, but was thinking of these fruity woods for chicken.

Hello SmokeItAll,

Have you heard when you are getting you CS.

Tracking my Amerique now. It's schduled for delevery tomorrow. Big Grin

I have been using a SS gas smoker from Sam's the last couple of years and used the wood chips. I use pecan for my brisket and everybody loves it. Only problem is I have about 20lbs of these on hand. I think I will try useing them in the CS and see how they work. As for the briquettes, I don't know but I have used for my wood now for several years and have been very happy with them. They seem to have one of the most complete selection I have found. If the chips don't work I will go to the chunks that everybody on the forum and CS says use.

Waiting is the hard part of Qing with a CS! Razzer
Smoky thanks for that, I will contact them, Spring isnt far from me. No sense paying UPS to send wood to me when it is close to me. Toms, I havent heard yet, I ordered my Amerique June 12. I cant even smoke here with my existing New Braunsfel smoker, I know it will not compare. Off to the street with it !
