I just recieved a order of Rubs from the John Henry's Co. They put in 6 packs of coffee wood chips from me to demo. I work for a grill shop and none of us know how to use this type of wood. I would like your help!!

Thank You

    Hi Smoking Jeffie,

    I'm going to take a wild stab at this and guess that coffee is a fruit and you could use it like any other fruit wood when smoking. I have never heard of anyone using coffee but it sounds very interesting. I would love to hear how it works out.

    You're thinkin way too much about it. Use them like any other chips and like GB says keep us posted.

    Rusty Rooster gave me some from the company last summer. He found it in georgia. They have siance disappeared.
    I like it with pork and poultry. When I do steaks I toss in a few LARGE tablespoons of coffee grounds and that adds a nice taste to beef. Also place the old grounds in an aluminum pouch with some holes and works well with any thing. I just save my grouinds, dry them out and store after very dry, if you just tgoss them into a sealed container they mildew. Hope this helps.
