Kamado Joe® Oak chunks impart a medium smoky flavor that is stronger than apple and cherry, but lighter than hickory and mesquite. It’s great by itself, but works well blended with apple, cherry or hickory woods. Oak wood work swell just just about any meat. It is not just about the charcoal but also about the smoke delivered from the wood aroma. Give them a try and you will never look back. Enjoy the smokey taste imparted from the slow burning wood and resultant and smoke aroma.
