Pear Wood

Pear Wood chunks for barbecues & smokers, currently offered in three chunk sizes as appropriate for your personal smoker. Please see below or the specific product size for more details.

Pear Wood is a mild variety, with some similarities to Apple Wood, but with the sweetness cranked up a notch or three. We find this an excellent match for sausage and fish, while being similar to Apple Wood on Rib and Shoulder cuts. Excellent for Grill Top smoking in the smallest format.

This product is mostly comprised of a variety of "rounds" of differing sizes, typically including bark. Please see product pictures for examples in each size.

Recommended for use with:

Pork - Ribs, Shoulder, Bacon, Chops
Beef - Ribs, Steaks, Roasts
Poultry - Chicken, Turkey, Game Birds
Fish - Salmon
Sausage - Bratwurst, Italian, Breakfast Links, etc.
Cheese - Pick your favorite and run Cold!

Bob Says:

"When I first used this with Brats, we thought someone secretly rolled them in brown sugar before putting them in the smoker! We were blown away with the sweetness this Pear Wood imparts to sausage and fish. We use it on the grill top at the shop routinely and it never lets us down. It has become my favorite for Bratwurst in particular and rivals the Apple Wood with Salmon in my opinion."
