Hi All,
I was wondering if anyone is familiar with what types of local wood in Malaysia can used to safely and deliciously smoke meats? Thanks ahead for any insights on this.

Here in the USA we use any wood that has a editable fruit or nut for the most part, not sure what type of tree's you have there as that's a large area, I would search some of you local tree types. coconut husks and shells have been used before with a good flavor I have read

Deeez,

For a number of years I traveled frequently to Kuala Lumpur for business and usually tagged on a a pleasure side-trip to Georgetown. Where ever I went, BBQ restaurants were abundant though most were Chinese or Korean. On a few occasions, however, I'd find places offering "American Style BBQ", or "Texas Style BBQ". In speaking to the owners of these places about their operations I found that the smoking woods most commonly used were mangrove, sugar cane, and several different types of fruit woods native only to Southeast Asia. The only one of the fruit woods I recall was rambutan, which is similar to lychee.

Deez - Glad you were able to find some local mangrove wood. Let us know what you think once you get a chance to try it.

BTW, where are you located in Malaysia?

Hey finally got the wood yesterday and did some shoulders and pork belly. The mangrove was pretty good. I was amazed cause when I first noticed it, it wasnt so attractive to my smell, but now Im sold. Will be reordering again soon.
Thanks again for the heads up on mangrove wood.

I'm a kiwi in Malaysia here..... just gotten into smoking meat a few weeks ago.

I'm particularly interested in these woods for smoking: nyatoh, simpoh, Kasai, kelat
