All of the Furtado Farms 100% all-natural Hickory chunks are hand selected, cut and packaged with care to send out only the highest quality product in every bag. Chunk wood is all naturally seasoned in the Furtado Farms wood yard. They aim for a slightly higher moisture content than our Cookwood Logs. This creates more smoke and flavour output.
Cookwood is locally sourced, hand selected and processed. None of the Furtado Farms products are kiln dried like most of the others especially big name brands. Kiln drying is a high heat oven that wood is placed into for many days, this draws out nearly 100% of the woods moisture and kills off any insects in the wood. This in turn also draws out the flavor and smell that’s associated with the woods natural moisture content. That's why Cookwood premium wood products will out smoke and flavor all the rest.
