BBQ with tropical wood
« on: November 13, 2017, 03:57:56 AM »
In Hawaii we like to smoke meat with strawberry guava wood.  Are there any other tropical fruit woods any of you have tried to smoke meat with that came out good?

I know not to use mango.

Lychee is supposedly really good.  I have a stack of lychee and guava waiting for the bbq.

That reminds me... I still haven't built an imu or the pizza oven.

Coconut shells burn well.  U can use the husk but the shell will have better flavor and it burn real fast from the oil.

Hi,

Seagrape wood is amazing! We use it for grilled steaks as well as smoked meat and it gives the most amazing flavor!

Seagrape.  Hmm.  That's a new one. I think we have a bunch around the islands here too!
