These were a must-have for our Santa Maria BBQ-themed family event in Texas. Huge container of red oak chips!
California Red Oak Chips
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. When prepared on a grill, foods barbequed with red oak are quickly seared to seal in the flavorful juices then slow roasted to perfection (medium rare in the case of beef).
This was a must to get the true SM Style flavor.
