BBQ Logs

Here at Cheshire Fuels we sell a large range of logs to clients in Appleton. Wood is a great way to get a BBQ started as it burns easily. We recommend a mix of woods for the perfect cooking experience simply because some woods are better for getting the fire started such as birch. Birch is easy to split so can be lit more easily. Then once the heat increases you could add a rich type of wood such as Beech or Oak for a delicious smokey taste to your food.

Pros of cooking on wood:

With many different types of woods to choose from, flavouring food can be altered quite easily based on the type of wood you choose. Certain types of woods will be more smokey while others are better for a longer burn but wither way you have more flavour options to choose from when cooking with wood.

Cons of cooking on wood:

You will need to keep a closer eye on your cooking when doing so on wood, the reason for this is that over smoking it can make it too woody. Additionally, wood burns faster than charcoal so you will need to top up your BBQ with more wood more frequently when compared with coal.

Consider a mix of fuels:

One thing we have tried in the past is to mix the fuel types to see which works best for you or if you plan on smoking some foods then start with the wood and add coal later to give the best combined smokey flavour with a longer lasting burn.

3 steps to making a great BBQ

When it comes to making the most of your BBQ there are a number of things to consider.

  1. Quality Ingredients – Make sure you use the finest quality produce
  2. The BBQ itself – having a well built bbq with a lid and various cooking levels is preferred
  3. High quality logs – integral to proper cooking, the logs you use must be good quality.

The first two on the list are fairly obvious but the final point is often overlooked. Having high quality bbq logs makes cooking easier and more consistent but most importantly means no unwanted additives. This is one of the main reasosn why so many local restaurants in Appleton choose us to supply their logs.
