THE DIFFERENCE 

Air Pockets in wood speed the fire

Mojobricks hardwood is the same wood pictured here, it’s natural hardwood.  Unlike products in the market “Wood Chunks” or any other form of wood for smoke flavor e.g. wood chips or sawdust; Mojobricks are not porous.

WATER AND WOOD CHUNKS OR WOOD CHIPS

Many experts in BBQ including Amazingribs.com Author Craig “Meathead” Goldwyn go to great lengths to explain away the use of water to slow the burn.  However, that does not stop every wood chunk manufacturer on the planet from using the words “soak this for a minimum of 2 hours” on the label of the wood chunk or wood chip bag. Soaking wood  for 2 hours is not going to slow anything other than your ability to start the grill as you wait for the wood to soak.

When a tree is first cut it has a moisture content of 50% to 65% or higher. The moment it hits the ground it begins to dry or “season.” By the time wood chunks reach the grocery shelf the moisture drops to 18% to 35% depending on its freshness.  In the same way chicken has water in it, that is pre-frozen and is sold by the pound, with frozen meat the purchase price is reflected in water content.  When you compare wood chunks or wood chips to Mojobricks you are buying 2 to 3 times the water weight in wood chunks or wood chips. When wood chunks or wood chips are placed in hot charcoal, even though the wood is 2 to 3 times more wet, it still burns up quicker because of its porous nature.  Soaking the wood chunks or wood chips in water ahead of time does not slow its burn, but for a few minutes.  The only way to slow the hardwood’s burn time is to remove the air pockets in the wood, reduce the wood’s moisture content and place it in the fire so that it maximizes the smoke flavor – wha la “Mojobricks” is all of these things.
