The hickory tree is native to the U.S. where over 12 varieties exist and hickory logs or chips were first used by the early settlers of the Appalachian Mountains to create an aromatic and smoky flavor in the foods they prepared. Hickory smoked foods are now popular throughout the American South where hickory is a fairly common wood. The idea of using hickory smoked salt as a separate seasoning grew out of the southern smoking tradition and is now an essential seasoning in classic American barbecue cooking.
