Title: Bisquettes
Post by: Johnny on March 20, 2017, 04:14:00 pm
Hey Guys,
Today I purchased a box of 120 bisquettes (assorted ones)
I've used all except for " alder"
Have any of you used this flavour? If so, on what?

Something I found awhile back.... But keep in mind, it's solely based on the flavour that works best with you. Treat this as a rough guide and experiment from there.

Bradley smoke pucks:

Hickory
Goes with just about everything, use it on Pork and Beef

Mesquite
Stronger smoke flavor use it primarily on beef sparingly

Cherry
Lighter flavor use it on Chicken

Pecan
Lighter smoke flavor as well and goes great with chicken and turkey

Alder
Goes great with any fish and bacon

Maple
Sweet flavor have used on fish and ham

Apple
Lighter flavor that goes great with cheese and good on pork

Jim Beam
Goes great with Beef a little bit lighter than Hickory

Oak
Goes great with beef and fish


Alder and maple give a rich and distinct flavour commonly used with seafood, hams, and bacon

The stronger and very distinct flavours of mesquite, oak and hickory are commonly used for smoking beef, game meat and pork

Apple and cherry impart a sweeter, milder smoke flavour, commonly used with poultry and wild game meat

Specialty Blend is a specially formed blend with a distinct flavour that is mild enough for any dish

Thanks Guys,
With all the flavours I've used in the past I don't particularly taste a "flavour" but some simply just have a stronger smoke flavour than others.
Maybe it's just me but I can't tell much of a difference lol

Alder is just about good for anything, I tend to use it for chicken and other poultry. Although if I'm not sure what wood to smoke with I use alder.

Generally a good basic wood to smoke with.

Alder grows pretty much up and down the west coast including Alaska. It's the traditional salmon/trout smoking wood and has been used by the natives for centuries.

We are over grown in our province with Alder as well! It mostly grows along the hwys here.
