Thrillseekers, coming from the other side of the world converting lbs to kgs or gallons to litres is relatively simple, iPhone has numerous conversion apps which are very helpful in the kitchen. Where I struggle is converting products that are readily avail in the northern hemisphere, unheard of here. As an example, what is Kosher Salt? What makes it different to normal salt, more or less iodine? I view with envy your posts on types of smokers. I wish I had that sort of range to choose from. I have a gas fired upright cabinet smoker, which, for my needs is very good. Unfortunately, because of our extremely tight quarantine laws, importing the types of wood often mentioned in your posts is both extremely expensive and extremely small. I am looking forward to experimenting with our local products, noting that eucalypts and conifers, do not fit the bill.
