What is smoked food? Well in basic terms, smoked food is flavoring, cooking, or preserving food by exposing it to smoke. You’ve probably noticed the flavor in smoked bacon.  The flavor comes from the type of wood used to smoke – usually hickorymesquite, oak, apple or peach wood.  

Usually we see a lot of chicken, pork, ham and sausages being smoked and it tastes amazing!  Before smoking, the protein is often spice rubbed with flavors like garlic and onion or in a brine with ingredients like beer or another flavorful liquid.  Then, the meat is cooked at a low temperature and indirect heat so it’s fall-apart tender and the smoky flavor permeates the meat.

Smoking meats is a flavorful twist on traditional barbecues.  Smoking your foods can be addicting! Whether you want to try smoked beef brisketpork shoulder or pork ribs or something a little less common like salmontrout, a whole turkeysteak or burgers, we have you covered in this collection.
