    The sawdust smelled great when I opened the bag, and depending on your application they would work great. I wouldn’t call this sawdust as much as really small chunks. I couldn’t keep them lit in an A-Maze-N cold smoker tray. I’m unsure if it was the sawdust’s size or the moisture inside of the wood.

    Excellent for smoking meat. Great flavor,

    I’ve used this sawdust for many years and it is the only brand I buy. It is a fine chip like consistency that produces a good even smoke pattern without excessive heat. I hope that this remains available because it’s the best I’ve found.

    Great hicory flavor and long lasting smoke

  13. Lawrence Alger (verified owner)

    My smoker would not produce smoke unless it was at the hot end of the dial. The sawdust does not take much time until it is smoking the meat.

    If you’re sick of impure foul tasting chips and sawdust, give this a try. I got sick of playing roulette with hardware store brand wood chips and 30# of sausage. I’ve gotten very consistent results and wouldn’t use anything else. I ran out recently and had to run to the hardware store and got reminded why I switched a long time ago.

    Used the Hickory Sawdust in a Smoker box with my electric smoker today. This was the first time I have used sawdust. I have used wood chips in the past. I smoked a cured pork belly to make homemade bacon. The sawdust worked perfectly. One box of it gave out smoke for four hours. It was still smoking when I took the pork belly off at four hours. Imparted a great hickory smoke flavor to the bacon. The bacon turned out really good! I think I will use sawdust from now on over chips with my electric smoker.

    Great flavor and burned so evenly in my electric smoker as opposed to woodchips.

    The fine sawdust works perfect with an electric smoker. I’ve used this for many years and have never found a better product.
