    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    Exactly, you can get pallets here for cheap but that is why I don't use them, because I don't know what has been done to the wood.

    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    No problem, appreciate the comment. I'm really trying to find my footing over here dealing with strang woods that I would have never thought about using back in Georgia....if we even had them in Georgia. So I can use all the help I can get.

    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    Not really in my area but some parts of Ireland do have apple trees, not in my area but..the most common type of hardwood in my area appears to be Ash. I live in the Southwest of Ireland, most of the Apple orchardfs I have eard of have been on the east coast.

    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    Especually for how long it will be exposed to the smoke, salmon is one thing but it can take a long time to smoke a Pork Butt.

    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    Thanks, I might just leave it based on what I am seeing here. All the hardwood here is so expensive and then I found this guy with Larch for dirt cheap...I knew it was too good to be true.

    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    Lol, I don't even think we have Larch in Georgia where I am from but I was getting conflicting information from people. Larch was listed on the Irish forestry website with the Hardwoods and I even ran into a guy on a chef forum I go too that claims all his restaurant uses is Larch.....but I...

    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    Thanks, I just bought a big load of Ash wood..it appears to be mainly white ash with a small bit of red ash mixed in. I have never used Ash before either..but this Ash wasn't exactly cheap so I am trying to find a more price friendly alternative. Both sides of my family were land owners in the...

    Can Larch be used for smoking?

    Ok, so I know as a general rule, conifers should not be used for smoking but Larch is a bit different from most conifers. For one, it is not an evergreen. I was talking to a guy in Veitenam who opened his own american bbq restaurant over there. He told me the first thing he would recommend to...

    So I want a smoker....

    I have already sourced the wood, I found some oak and some applewood so I am good to go on that front. I am also not in any hurry. I have lived in Ireland without a smoker for over a decade so I can wait to get the smoker that I want. A friend of mine today put me in touch with a metal...

    So I want a smoker....

    Hello everyone, if you read my introductory post in the new member's section, you know that I am a native of Georgia but I currently reside in Ireland. After doing research, what I really want is a reverse flow smoker. I am not a welder or metal fabricator so I am going to be hiring a Polish...

    Greetings from Ireland!

    I mentioned I found one company here in Ireland who makes smokers, they make different kinds. The pictures of their smokers all look like they are made from steel drums which again made their price all the more surprising. I also have access to beer kegs but the fabricator I have been speaking...

    Greetings from Ireland!

    Thanks, I'll have to convert that to metric for any Irish or polish fabricators but that seems very useful. As a fabricator yourself, do you think a steel drum would work as a smoking chamber? I am having a hard time finding a metal tank, most of the ones I do find are huge and are used on...

    Greetings from Ireland!

    Thanks, everyone. After doing some research, I would really love to have a reverse flow smoker. I am just having a real problem finding anyone over here who seems to believe they can make one. The offset smoker you can by here a cheaply made, just not good quality at all. I don't care how...

    Greetings from Ireland!

    I'm an ex-pat, a good ole boy originally from near Savannah Georgia. I have lived in Ireland for over a decade now. I am a classically trained chef, with two culinary degrees but have not worked as a chef for some time. My family was always big into pig pickings. My family's own BBQ sauce...
