Factors To Consider When Choosing Best Wood For Pulled Pork

Choosing the right wood for your next BBQ is an essential part of a successful cook. However, many people have no clue how to go about selecting the best wood. Fortunately, some factors can be taken into consideration when choosing which type of wood will work best for you and your needs.

best wood for pulled pork

In this part, we’ll cover all you need to know about what makes a good BBQ wood and why they matter. Many things can affect your choice of wood for pulled pork. The most common factors are the following:

Type Of Meat

The first thing you need to consider when choosing the best wood for pulled pork is what type of meat you’re cooking. Different meats require different types of woods as they impart distinct flavors and aromas. Know that each type of meat has its unique characteristics such as fat content, flavor, and texture.

It’s important to know these differences when selecting the best wood for some of the most common BBQ meats:

Pork

The primary pork cuts that are usually barbecued include ribs, shoulder, and loin. Most of these meat types have more collagen than other kinds. Collagen is what gives tenderness to the meat, so it requires longer cooking times until this substance breaks down.

That’s why wood with a low burn temperature is best for pulled pork. Woods like apple, cherry, and apricot are good choices because they have a low burning temperature and also produce a sweet flavor that pairs well with pork.

Chicken

Chicken is a very versatile meat and is often cooked on the grill. There are many different ways to cook chicken, but it’s usually barbecued as thighs, legs, or breasts. Chicken doesn’t require a long cooking time as pork does, so you can use wood that has a higher burn temperature.

Woods like hickory, oak, and pecan are good choices for chicken as they have a moderate to high burn temperature and impart a smoky flavor that compliments this type of meat well.

Beef

The commonly barbecued beef cuts are brisket, ribs, and steak. Beef has a lot of connective tissues, which makes it tough to chew unless the meat is cooked for a long time. This is why beef needs a longer cooking time to break down these substances.

That’s why you should use wood that has a high burning temperature when barbecuing beef cuts. Woods like pecan, oak, and hickory are good choices because they have a high burning temperature. These woods also lend bold flavors to the meat that are better suited for beef cuts.

What Is The Purpose Of Using Wood

When it comes to BBQing, the purpose of using natural hardwood charcoal or logs is simply to provide heat to cook the meat. The heat will come from the combustion of the fuel source, and in turn, will cook your food.

There are a variety of woods that can be used for smoking and grilling, with each imparting its unique flavor to the food. For example, if you’re looking to smoke ribs, using a wood with a strong flavor like hickory would be ideal. If you’re looking to grill chicken, on the other hand, a milder wood like apple would be a better choice.

Flavor

One of the most important factors to consider is the flavor that you are looking for in your meat. It’s important to choose the right type of wood that will give you what you want, while also complementing the meat you are cooking. For example, if you’re cooking poultry, using a milder flavored wood like apple or cherry is recommended.

However, if you’re looking to smoke beef or pork ribs, hickory will give them that distinct smoky flavor that people love. If you have no idea what you’re looking for, it might be a good idea to ask the experts at your local BBQ store. They might be able to help you make a good decision about the wood flavor.

Ease Of Use

Choosing the best wood for pulled pork is also about considering how easy it is to use the source of heat you’re using. If you are using hardwood logs, then this can be quite cumbersome as they tend to be large and need to be cut into smaller pieces before use.

On the other hand, if you are using charcoal briquettes, then all you have to do is light them and wait for them to heat up. This makes them a more user-friendly option, especially for those who might not be as experienced with barbecuing and prefer a simple cooking method.

Type Of Grill

Another factor to consider is the type of grill that you are using. Gas grills don’t need wood to create heat, so you would only use wood for smoking or flavoring purposes.

On the other hand, charcoal grills provide an additional source of heat. This means that you can be choosey with which type of wood you want to use since it will be providing both the flavor and the fuel. Sometimes it’s a good idea to try different types of woods until you find one that works best for you.

Size Of Grill

The size of your grill is also important, as it will determine how much wood you need. If you have a small grill, then a small piece of wood will be sufficient. However, if you have a large grill, then you might need a few pieces of wood to get the job done. 

Now that you know all about the different factors to consider when choosing the best wood for pulled pork, it’s time to get cooking! Experiment with different types of wood until you find the perfect one for your taste buds. Enjoy!

How To Cook Pulled Pork Using Different Types Of Woods

best wood for pulled pork

Wood is an important aspect of barbecue. Different types of wood have different flavors, which can be imparted to your food simply by using them as the fuel source to cook your food.

Wood choice is not just important for its flavor though, but also because some woods are more appropriate than others depending on what you’re cooking. For example, if you’re cooking chicken, you wouldn’t want to use a wood that’s strong in flavor, as it will overpower the taste of the chicken.

When it comes to pulled pork, there are a few different types of wood that work well. Mesquite is a popular choice, as it has a strong smoky flavor that pairs well with the richness of barbecued pork. Hickory is also popular, and it’s a good choice because it also has a strong flavor that works well with the meat.

You should use pieces of wood that are small enough to be manageable as an individual piece on your cooking grate. If you use larger pieces, they may not catch fire or produce a lot of smoke, and they also take up more space on the cooking grate.

FAQs About Best Wood For Pulled Pork

– How should I prepare the wood before use?

Many types of wood chips and chunks need to be soaked or boiled in water to help them smolder longer and prevent burning up too quickly.

– What type of meat should I use?

Pork shoulder or pork butt is the ideal cut of meat to cook for pulled pork sandwiches. These are usually sold in supermarkets. If you want to try making your own, a slow cooker works just as well and can produce tender meats that fall apart easily.

– Which wood is the best for pulled pork?

Some woods that are popular for smoking pulled pork include apple, cherry, hickory, maple, and oak. You can experiment with different types of wood to find the one that you like the best. Just make sure that the wood you choose is small enough to fit on your cooking grate.

– How do I set up a grill for smoking?

To set up a charcoal grill, you should use about 30 briquettes. Place them in an even layer on one side of the grill and place a drip pan filled with water next to the coals. Once the coals are lit, add your soaked wood chunks or chips in the middle of the grill and place your pork over the drip pan.

– Where can I find the best recipes for pulled pork?

Pork shoulder or butt slow cookers are a great place to start looking for recipes that will yield the most tender and juicy pulled pork.

Conclusion

With all the choices out there, it can be hard to decide which one is best for you. However, if you’re looking for the best wood for pulled pork, then hickory is a good choice. Not only does it have a strong smoky flavor, but it’s also durable and long-burning.
