I always thought smoking foods was a time consuming hassle and quite a chore but I’ve learned that it’s actually much easier than you think to add rich flavor to your favorite grilling recipes with Western Smoking Chips. Grilling is definitely one of our favorite parts of the summer season here in the Pacific Northwest. Hubby has been known to bust out the BBQ in a snow drift some years because food just isn’t the same prepared any other way. I currently have a new favorite (read: easy) recipe for Grilled Flank Steak using wood smoking chips and the entire family loved it. you don’t need a lot of ingredients because the Mesquite wood chips give it all the rich, smoked flavor you need which makes me happy because that’s less mess to clean up and less money I have to spend to round out a recipe. We use a charcoal grill, but you can use smoking chips on a gas grill as well. (There’s even a how-to video on westernchipmaster.com.)
A little background; Western BBQ, as a brand, has always been about finding the highest quality local flavors to provide the best barbecue experience for grillers everywhere. When Jerry Lawson started W W Wood Inc. in 1986, he sold hickory and mesquite logs to locals around Pleasanton, just south of San Antonio, Texas. He gathered wood from nearby farms and ranches, and sold it to nearby BBQ joints and backyard grillers. I personally find this fascinating and makes me feel like I could connect with the brand on a personal level since my family is from Texas; in fact, my dad and my sister live there now. (Miss you all!!!) When I find a new product that I think I’ll be a repeat consumer of, I love learning the backgrounds and intentions of companies. Weird right?
Today, Western BBQ is still just as committed to creating amazing flavors by using high quality, natural woods for its customers nationwide. In fact, there are no chemicals used in any part of the manufacturing of its wood products, just local flavor. 80 to 90 percent of the pecan, post oak and mesquite hardwoods come straight from Texas. This wood provides a higher efficiency than charcoal briquettes. So, not only does the wood provide better flavor, but also a more natural BBQ experience. And let’s be honest, experiences are way more memorable than “things”.
Grilled Flank Steak Recipe
I prepared our Grilled Flank Steak exactly as this recipe card shows and I can’t say that there’s really anything at all I would tweak. I loved it just the way it was, but depending on your family’s preferences, there are about a zillion ways you could make this recipe yours.
