The Wood Guys’ Wood
The Wood Guys focus primarily on the alien species of wood listed below:
BLACK WATTLE Blackwattle is the quintessential cooking wood as it gives food a unique, smoky flavour. It is dry and burns slowly, providing heat for hours and is widely available in South Africa and preferred due to its minimal residue.
BLUE GUM Blue gum is the perfect wood for commercial and home pizza ovens as it burns hot and fast and generally produces less ash than other varietals.
MYRTLEWOOD The slow growing myrtlewood, also known as pepperwood, is a hard, dense wood that displays a variety of colours. Slow burning and dependable, myrtle is a popular firewood choice because it produces less ash than other types and emits a nice fragrance as it burns.
ROOIKRANS Rooikrans is a popular source of firewood that can grow to heights of between 3 and 8m tall. The mature rooikrans tree offers dry, dead wood and old, flammable pods, perfect for any braai or fireplace.
