Cooking With Wood

The process of cooking with wood has been around for centuries.  Using wood gathered from local forests to either cook or flavor our food is something that most people find interesting and exciting.

Wood offers us the opportunity to get creative with our cooking.  The natural flavors found within the smoke or sap can give you a taste that no over the counter spice can offer.

It can be as simple or as involved as you want to make it and you don't have to be a master chef to enjoy the benefits.  

Using a grill or cooking over a hot bed of campfire coals is an experience everyone should enjoy.  

Not quite sure if you're ready?

Don't worry......we'll walk you through some of the basic steps to get you outside and enjoying a great tasting meal or snack in no time.
