Almond Wood

Almond Wood


Almond wood produces a mild, sweet smoke. The smoke as well as the ash is very light. It is a very hard wood, so take that into consideration when cutting or splitting.

Type of foods that go well with almond wood:

  • Beef – great with smaller cuts
  • Pork – roasts, ribs
  • Poultry
  • Smoking vegetables and non-meat items

Almond wood mixes well with apple and cherry wood.
