Hi everyone.
I just built myself a 200L steel drum smoker, or UDS (as per youtube) and I am looking for tips on smoking, and possible charcoal and wood sources around the area; if anyone is from near me anyway. I've tried using local charcoal, but it burns too quickly, and briquette sources are at least 110km away from me.

Thanks!

My BIL had charcoal made out of a Mango tree that he had cut down.

Thanks! I tried mango charcoal for a test burn today, 3kg lasted about 4.5 hours @250° F. 4.5kg should give me enough for a 6hour smoke with enough margin for error.

Good morning and welcome to the forum from a muggy wet day here in East Texas, and the best site on the web. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about everything.

Was there meat involved with the test? Just curious about the flavor profile produced by mango...
