Chup is thicker than a chip and smaller than a chunk. Look no further than the CHUP for nice consistent smoke and burn time.
Made from the center of hickory logs. Expect richest hickory flavor from "Green" heartwood.

Wood contains water in the cells and between the cells. Drying or "Seasoning" the wood removes the moisture out of the cell. Chips and chunks are often dried out to prevent mold in the package and on the shelf. Problem is when the "bound water" is driven out of the cell-so is much of the flavor.
Authentic BBQ Establishments and experts demand "Green" wood because they know you can't get the flavor back one it's dried out.
