Hello to everyone from the other half of the world! I am new to the smoking world. I am a 32yr old mechanical engineer from Kansas and work in the oil and gas industry. I have always been a griller, but decided 6 months ago to make the switch. I chose a Primo Oval XL so I could have the best of both worlds. I have since been relocated to Malaysia. Unfortunately, this has limited me since my access to wood (and pretty much beef altogether) is all through the internet. Luckily, I live on an island where seafood, pork, and lamb are all abundant so I think I can make due.
One thing I am interested in is alternative smoking woods. Malaysia does not have much in terms of the regulars (oak, hickory, mesquite, pecan, apple, ect). This has led me on a bit of a hunt for tropical woods that can be used for smoking. If anyone has suggestions on that let me know.
