California’s native Red oak is a hardwood that burns slowly and evenly. The aromatic smoke generated by the smoldering chips imparts the distinct character of the terroir of California’s Central Coast; a mellow sweet flavor that is low in tannins.

Red oak

Susie Q's Red Oak is the best wood I've ever used on tri-tip and or prime rib to smoke with! I've used a lot of different Oak and Susie Q's Red Oak is the best hands down!

California Red Oak Chips

California Red Oak Chips infuse meats with the most scrumptious flavoring. When California Red Oak Chips are used, the result is amazing flavor and aroma. California Red Oak Chips are absolutely essential for grilling and roasting Santa Maria tri-tip.

Premium chips, would like more size options

This is my first time trying red oak after learning that this is the type of wood my favorite local BBQ joint uses. I've found that it's surprisingly difficult to buy red oak in chip form (which is what I need for my grill). So far, it's my favorite flavor wood! The quality of Susie Q's chips is excellent. There are no tiny pieces/shavings settled at the bottom of the bag like all of my other smoking chips. They are all of relatively uniform size as pictured on the website, which shows that the company is careful to deliver a good product to the customer and not fill the bag with useless pieces to save cost. My only wish is that Susie Q would offer a larger package of these. I ordered the "Large" bag and it's really not very big. Red oak is a mild smoking wood and you need to use a lot of it to get flavor into food, so the bag I ordered isn't going to last very long. It would be nice if I could order a 5-10lb box and use my own container. My only complaint is that I can't buy as much of the product as I'd like to.

Red Oak Wood chips

I am very particular when it comes to grilling Santa Maria style tritip. Putting these red oak chips on my Weber and allowing the flames to kiss the roast leaves a delightful Smokey authentic flavor! These are hard to come by and Susie Q packs a lot of chips in the container.
