Just wanted to quickly let you guys know that I stumbled upon an incredible deal on hickory wood chunks a few minutes ago.
Amazon has 9lb bags on sale for only $5.58! Stock up now! My local grocery stores sells this exact bag for $9.99, so this deal presents nearly a 50% savings, especially if you have Amazon Prime or if you can combine with other items in order to receive free shipping.
In my opinion, hickory is one of the more versatile smoke woods and is perfect for smoking various cuts of pork or beef. With hickory chunks, you can expect a noticeable smoke flavor with a slight hint of bacon. It also pairs extremely well with oak or apple wood if the smoke flavor from hickory alone is a little too strong for your taste.
