For authentic Texas style BBQ right here in New Zealand.
While there are hundreds of varieties of Oak, at Urban Lumberjack we’re focused on the White Oak family. It gets us as close as possible to replicating the taste of Texas (without actually being there). In most parts of the great state, they pretty much exclusively use Post Oak, which is from the same family. Oak produces a lovely, distinctive colour in most smoked foods, and is recommended by Franklin BBQ for beef brisket. It falls in the middle of the spectrum for strength and flavour – typically milder than Hickory, but stronger than most fruit woods.
