G'day all! I'm looking to try some Australian wood for smoking, as buying wood chips from trees not native to Australia are very expensive. I've been paying nearly $10 for 1 1/3lb of hickory/mesquite chips (and that's the cheapest price I could find) so am going to try and find a local option to throw into the mix. I'd like to get some opinions on what characteristics woods that are good for smoking should have, i.e hardwoods/softwoods/fruit tree wood etc. Any and all opinions would be much appreciated! And Merry Christmas to everyone on SMF!!!
