A collection of six pure wood dust flavours for food smoking including hardwoods and fruitwoods suitable for cold smoking and for stainless steel hot smokers.
We have gathered together a versatile collection of wood smoking dust products in a range of flavours to suit most food smoking recipe ideas.
Dust is mostly used for cold smoking where low temperatures are required, or for long slow hot smoking projects, and the consistency ranges from a fine particle to a more feathery, bittier flake. The smaller size of the dust gives you optimum smouldering, and the production of wonderful rich smoke aromas to enhance the flavour of your food. Perfect for use with the ProQ Cold Smoke Generator or with stainless steel hot smokers.
How to use - Instructions for use will vary according to which equipment you are using, however, here's a quick guide:
For stainless steel smokers - use a heaped tablespoon and place in a pile in the centre of the base of your smoker.
For the ProQ Cold Smoke Generator - you will need 100g dust to fill the smoke generator. Damp the dust down slightly and ensure the top rim of the generator is clear so that the smouldering does not 'jump tracks'.
For other cold smoke cabinets - lay the dust in either a grid or coil formation on a metal or aluminium foil base in the bottom of your cabinet. Light from one end.
Depending on the depth of smoke flavour you prefer you may decide to use more or less dust or opt for a stronger flavour. Have fun experimenting!
