    What type of wood are you using there?

    I've tried a number of our indigenous hardwoods but most produce too much smoke and others make the meat bitter. The best local wood I've used so far is Swarthaak.

    I have no idea what type of wood it is.

    It is hard and dry. Dry is very important... you get a very bad taste if not.

    Try and get hold of peach,cherry,pear
    Use two or three chunks not logs or you can overdo it
    The smoke gives you the taste and "bark" your coals do the cooking
    Low and slow

    Hi Grant,

    I have hickory, apple, cherry, pecan and mesquite chunks that I got from Big Green Egg.
    Many of our local hardwoods are like mesquite, which is very strong and should be used with reservation.

    I'd love to get some peach and pear chunks!

    So, kan ek die perske takke gebruik wat ek gaan afsnoei hierdie winter? Ek het 'n paar Kakemas, Orion en Oom Sarel bome wat ek moet snoei.

    Try using wood that does not have bark ,bark smokes excessively and for some reason has those bitter flavours

    I am fortunate to live in Stellenbosch
    Is just ask the fruit farmers
    Mesquite is to strong I find the smoke bark is somewhat bitter so I don't use it

    Yes should have made it clearer no bark on the chunks
    Also was referring to the smoke"bark" on the meat

    @Spider Gear

    That's exactly the right wood to use. Just make sure it's properly dry.

    I use their orange, almond and olive wood. The olive is fantastic for lamb on the Weber and citrus always goes well with chicken, pork and even beef. It's a very mild smoke flavor.

    I've ordered one of these from the UK and I'll be using the wood dust available from SA BBQ Smokers.

    BTW: SA BBQ Smokers also offer smoking seminars for those of you that would like to learn more about this dark art.

    Thanks Dudley!

    I always remove the bark from indigenous wood like Sekelbos, Kameeldoring etc. They still generate more smoke than I would like and for this reason I seldom use our local woods. The local hardwoods aren't too bad in electrical or gas smokers as the ood is the only source of smoke. When using charcoal or briquettes, they add more smoke

    Fruit trees like apple and peach have a very thin bark which makes no difference at all to the flavor.

    These are by far the best smoking chunks available in SA. They're expensive but a little goes a looonngg way.
