Barbecue season is finally upon us, and while it’s the perfect time to fire up the grill and enjoy a delicious meal, there‘s something else that can make a huge difference to your cookouts – wood chips or wood chunks. Using wood chips or wood chunks when smoking or barbecuing is a great way to give your food a delicious smoky flavor. But storing wood chips or wood chunks can be a tricky business.
Here we’ll cover some tips for storing BBQ smoking wood. First and foremost, you want to make sure that your wood chips or wood chunks are stored safely and properly to avoid the risk of contamination and spoilage. To do this, it’s best to store the wood in an airtight container made from a material such as metal or a food–grade plastic. If you want to get a bit more advanced, you can also invest in a wood chip holder that holds the wood chips or wood chunks in a large container and has a lid with a lock feature.
This type of holder will help ensure that the wood chips or wood chunks are stored securely and will make it easy to open the lid and access the wood. Finally, it’s important to make sure that you store the wood chips or wood chunks in a cool, dark place. Storing your wood in these conditions will help to preserve the flavor of the wood, so you can enjoy the smoky flavor for much longer.
By following these tips, you’ll be able to store your wood chips or wood chunks safely and securely, so you can enjoy flavorful barbecues all summer long.
