Hi guys
for those of you that are not awre to the fact that BBQ (here is is called "mangal") is almost the national sport. it is very popular but not smoking. anyhow thanks for the good will and the advise. I hope that smoking popularity will increase, too.

Welcome to SMF, I'll be looking forward to learn some of the traditional means of BBQ from your country. Perhaps you can mix what you learn here with what you already know and treat us all to the qview!

Hi avs. Welcome to the forum. What sort of meat will you be smoking? Here in the US we smoke just about everything, but I have no idea what is available or preferred by you. Here in Texas the preferred cut is brisket of beef. With Israel being a seafront state the seafood must be awesome.

Good luck on your build. It is really hard to mess it up. Trust your instincts.

Hi again
Really nice to read all your comments.
Athabaskar - you did put your finger on a very "sensitive" point. according to the jewish religion, pork and seafood are not kosher and since the people of Israel are devided to people that follow the religious rules and does not consume them (and other stuff) and the people that dont follow those rules and eat them just as well. you can buy anything that you want, according to your preference. regarding seafood - you can find it. maybe it is not popular as it is in the states. fish are more popular, both sea and sweet water, but then again, not smoked. not that it does not exists, but its not that popular. I hope that it will change, since I love smoked fish. Ah, the use of smoked salmon and smoked tuna fish are quite common, but the other sort of fish is generally fried or in the oven.
Myself, if you were wondring, I eat almost everything, as long it is tasty and clean, its OK by me.

avz - I understand the sensitive nature of the subject of consumable foods within different cultures and I totally respect everyone's choices. To me it is enjoyable that we each have our own preferences. For instance, last weekend my wife and I had Japanese food for lunch on Friday, we shopped at an Asian market and ate curry on Saturday, and then had smoked sausages for dinner Sunday evening. The rest of the stuff I smoked is in the freezer for later.
