Suitable Woodchip and BBQ Pellets USA

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to choose the most suitable woodchip and/or BBQ pellets to use in your Smokai Smoke Generator.

Our Smokai Premium Woodchip is only available in New Zealand, due to strict quarantine laws in most countries around the world - we can’t export it unfortunately.

We have listened to our customers feedback in the USA and other parts of the world and listed below the most common recommendations for suitable, readily available woodchip and BBQ pellets.


Please note, if you are using woodchip in your Smoke Generator it should be 2-10mm in size, sieved to be free from dust, and kiln dried. Use only hardwood species when smoking food. Do not use woodchip larger than 10mm in size, wood chunks, wet/soaked woodchip, sawdust or softwoods.

BBQ Pellets:

Please note, if you are using BBQ pellets in your Smoke Generator they should be 100% Natural Hardwood Pellets for grilling and contain no artificial flavors, fillers, binders, dyes, chemical additives or oils.
