Silver Birch

Provides a light smoky taste similar to maple and is ideally suited to cooking poultry, fish, and vegetables such as asparagus and courgette.  Silver Birch is commonly used in winemaking and distilling due to its mineral, zesty flavour. 

Apple

Apple is most commonly associated with cooking pork.  It gives off a light, fruity aroma and is particularly effective for longer smoking.  It works well in combination with other sweet woods, like cherry, or with stronger smoking flavours such as oak.  Pork ribs in particular taste best when cooked over oak and it is also well-suited to lamb, poultry, and seafood.

Wild Cherry

A mild, sweet wood that is best suited to beef, poultry, and pork.  It gives a subtly fruity flavour to food and works well either on its own, or in combination with apple or oak.

Oak

An excellent all-rounder that goes well with any meat.  It has a reasonably strong smoky flavour, meaning that it pairs well with lighter woods like apple and cherry, but is also a versatile classic by itself.  Oak adds considerable flavour to any barbeque and works especially well with red meat, fish, and game.  It is particularly effective in smoking salmon. 

Ash

Ash is a medium-intensity wood that provides a delicate but distinct flavour.  It works best with red meat and fish and tends to burn fast. 

Hazel

Like most nut woods, hazel produces a strong, fragrant smoke.  It adds a rich flavour to meat and is also a great choice for smoking cheese. 

Beech

A hard wood that releases flavour slowly and smoulders with intensity.  Its herbal aroma makes it excellent for cooking light meats and oily fish.  

Alder

Gives a delicately sweet flavour and a honeyed scent that works well with pork, game, and poultry.  Alder is the best choice for marinating meats.
