Spit roast tip of the week: Wood chips

Some of our readers are a bit nervous about using wood chips. Let Adrian Richardson show you how easy it is. He uses wood chunks in the video, but his tips also apply to wood chips for spit roasts.

Once briquettes have ashed over, simply throw a couple of wood chips directly under your roast. This will give your meat that authentic, smoky taste that can’t be achieved with any other method.

Happy Easter, spit roasters!
