What is beech wood good for?

​Beech wood or beechnut is the nuttiest of all the nut woods that are used for smoking or grilling.  The beechnut smoke has a distinct nut smell that pairs very well with beef, pork, and cheese.  Beechnut is one of the most dense of all hardwoods which means it will smoke longer with a more intense smell that even hickory, oak, or pecan.

  It seems to be common knowledge that wood from the colder climates have more density than those grown in year-round warm weather.

A quick study of wood moisture contents and weight https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/weigt-wood-d_821.html
shows that northern woods have a higher density (4%-28%) than their southern counterparts.

The bottom line to all of this is simple:  The greater the density of wood, the more smoke, and the more smoke the more flavor!  All of the wood from Flame Grilling Products is native to Maine or New England.
