5I've Never had better Smoked Salmon.Feb 23, 2010
I have used many different smoking chips to make my smoked salmon, but these Western Red Alder Wood smoking chips are by far my most favorite. By all means, I am not a world famous smoker of salmon. In fact, I just use my Webber kettle grill to make it. But it turns out fantastic. One can tell it is going to turn out great just by the smell of the smoke during the process. I have many folks tell me my smoked salmon is better than most store bought, or specialty purchased, smoked salmon. Plus, the amount of chips you get for the price is well worth it compared to the small little bags you find locally. Give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

5Great value!Aug 29, 2009
By Gary K. Rubens
Alder chips are almost impossible to find at a supermarket or large hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowes. These chips do indeed complement salmon very well. The flavor is more mild than hickory, mesquite, oak, pecan, maple or any of the fruit woods. The giant 8 pound bag will last for a couple of grilling seasons, and makes it easy to offer some to guests, if they enjoy the flavor. This is a great product, would recommend to anyone who enjoys a smoky flavor, but on the mild side.

4Somewhat disappointing at first but now...Mar 12, 2014

In the past I've always used Alder wood chips from Cameron Products and its great. But I saw this product which is 8 lbs. of Alder wood chips as oppose to the 2 lb bag of the other brand that I used, based on the price it was definitely more cost effective to it. After using it to smoke salmon I am somewhat disappointed with the smoke taste, it is very different than all other Alder wood chips that I've used in the past especially the ones from Cameron Products. I could be wrong but this product gives a taste almost like if the wood has been treated as oppose to just having the natural wood. I should have known just based on the price for 8 lbs. You always get what you pay for. I am not saying this is a bad product, for my personal taste I prefer the smoke taste of other Alder wood chips. Not sure whether I would recommend this product or not. After reviewing this product a few weeks ago I continued using it and I am not afraid to say I was wrong and perhaps too quick to judge. I do like the taste after smoking quite a bit of salmon using this product over the past month. It is a good product and I would definitely recommend it now.

5Big bagOct 22, 2013
