    Welcome to the SMF Warwick! We're glad you found us. Please post often and tell us about your smoking down there. What kind of wood do you use etc. Again, welcome to the forum.
     
  3. Hi There,
    On investigating a bit, apple and oak will probably be the best as there are a lot of apple orchards not far from Cape Town and oak trees grow wild. Home smoking does not seem to be big here. Have struggled to get cures etc. There are places to buy but they cater for the commercial market i.e you have to buy 25kg at a time.
    Meat here is not too expensive

    Welcome to SMF Warwick. I work in Angola and travel thru Joburg each month. One of these days I plan to rent a Harley in Joburg and ride to Cape Town with some friends that live there. Good luck with your smokin'

    Welcome! For being new to smoking a barrel smoker is a big task. Good luck
     
  20. We do not have the amount of stuff here that you guys in the USA have. Smoking meat etc as a hobby is very small, so there are not places to get what you need. The suppliers cater for the commercial market
