Hi from the Philippines

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
:sausage:Hi everyone
I'm a newby here so here is a bit about myself. I am retired Canadian, Australian duel citizenship, retired in the paradise of the Philippines. I operate a wood fired pizzeria in the scuba diving resort of Sabang Poerto Galera. I smoke bacon which I use on my various pizzas that calls for meat and I smoke for my personal use as well. I use a converted water pressure tank with a charcoal burner in the bottom and use coconut husk to smoke. I need a bit of help but will post again after I've gone through the threads posted here. sausage.gif

hi guys
Thanks for the posts. unfortunatly in oriental mindoro as in the philippines it is iligal tog cut down trees so I have buy my wood from people who venture out into the hills and forage for fallen trees Fruit trees around these parts are rare except for mango which again I have to wait for a tree to fall over and when it does we buy the whole tree. I wish I could source woods that are available in the states or canada.

Welcome,

 

I know a few people on the forum smoke with Pistachio shells.  I don't know if they're available in the Philippines or not.  I don't know what other alternatives  there would be.
