This site doesn't seem to be live anymore http://www.smokingwoodsupplies.co.uk

Are there any other suppliers people recommend?

I'm sure I found a supplier based near Reading who supply the UK BBQ Champions (also based in Reading) or something like that...unless I dreamed it which is creepy.

Really useful table.

I just recieved my first box of wood chunks from Paul Goulden, can't wait to start experimenting. The box includes some Elm -- any idea what that's like and what goes well?

Has anyone tried using Kameeldoring (Camel Thorne)? It is widely used in Africa for open BBQ's but I've never heard of it being used for smoking. It's moisture content is practically zero so it releases very little smoke but it also takes a long time to burn so could be good for long cooks.
I have some left over from a few BBQ's I did in the summer and thought I might give it a go sometime in my smoker, but don't really want to ruin a family meal, so if anyone has any thoughts on this and what meat it might favour it would be appreciated.
If not I guess I'll have to be the Guinea Pig!

Has anyone heard of a tropical hardwood called Tambalun? I own a brewery and the hard spiles that are used to re-seal the casks are made of this wood and I was wondering it it's be suitable for smoking?

Well, I used some rosemary (both thick stem section and some leaves) to smoke up some ox cheeks, pork cheeks, and pork shoulder.

Also threw in a handful of cherry chips.

Verdict on rosemary as a smoking wood - Absolutely delicious flavour! but it needs to be used very sparingly. Its seriously powerful stuff and rendered some of the meat borderline inedible.

I will certainly use it again, but probably about a third of what I used before.

Hi all, new member here. Looking into woods to smoke with. My dad has a large log outdoor pile and often comes across various types of wood.
If he has some oak or similar hard wood ideal for smoking and it’s just been left to dry naturally for a long time (on his covered, but open sided log store) is this then good for using in a smoker?

Or would it be better quality & better for smoking to buy the wood from one of the many online sources I’ve read up on this forum?
