What you’re braaing dictates what you use and there are two types of smoking woods that must be on the top of your list; Cherry wood and Pecan wood . Using the right smoking wood will ensure that you get the best out of your braai.
Cherry wood adds a moderately sweet flavour and is perfect for more delicate pieces of meat. Just a few chips, or a chunk, can subtly transform poultry. Pecan wood is a slightly sweet, but more aggressive wood, that’s perfect for steaks and beef. It gives each bite something extra as the smoke works its way around the crust.
