  1. Hello: my name is jak, I'm from Hawaii, I have a Char-Broil-smoker with firebox from Home Depot and smoke meat once a month, we don't have the variety of wood for smoking like you folks' have, mesquite, guava, mango is what we use. Pretty soon we are going too smoke wild boar that we caught in our trap. Thank you.

    Aloha, Jak!

    Welcome to our friendly family of like minded smokers! I do believe there may be a bit of info on wild boar in the "Wild Game" section of our forum. Please, share with us your experiences both good and not so good. We all look forward to your posts and for goodness sake please try to post some pictures of that wild boar smoke!
    Welcome new friend!

    welcome jak!!

    a good friend of mine lives and smokes in hawaii.

    i think he will order a lot of his wood online, witch he said is a little more pricey then it should be but you get an excellent choice of wood.

    you will usually buy it in 8lb bags....its not hard to find, its how i get my apple......

    you can use it as a blend to your woods to create a one of a kind taste

    also just to keep in the back of your mind i use the same smoker now. have had it over a year and have learned to master mine for the most part. feel free to ask me any questions you can come up with. i can share with you what i know and you can adapt your style if something fits

    Aloha, Jak. I'm new as well, but welcome. It should be nice to get some first hand tips on the "exotic" smokes of The Islands. PLEASE post pics of the Wild Boar smoke, if you can. Have a safe camp, keep an eye to the Southeast on Tropical Storm Daniel...
  11. Hello everybody, thanks for the invites too your forum, Buzzard, does' your friend live on Oahu, if he does' maybe i can connect up with him, i tried the minion method and it worked good for me, Noah, the Samoans use the dried coconut husks for their fuel when the cook the meat in the ground. I have too figure out on using camera and send any pictures' in the future, also i got too remember the time differences from here too where you folks' are, take care , aloha

    I'm wondering if you let the pineapple skins dry a bit, would you get more smoke than if you used fresh skins??

    buzzard Smoking Fanatic OTBS Member

    Jak, i sent you an private message. look for it

    dutch, i would think yes, wouldnt you? the question is how long do you let them dry. im guessing a few days. im not really sure whyim thinking that way i guess from my limited knowledge it just makes since. no wait i have a food dehydrator......hhuummm pineapple rine jerky
