Expat smoker in the Philippines

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by oldsalt45, Dec 11, 2014.

  1. Before I left the States I was living in Navy Housing on  Naval Air Station New Orleans.  My little smoker, which I couldn't bring with me, was fired up at least twice a month. Used it mainly for sausages but also homemade bacon.

    Since arriving here in the PI my main concern was the type of wood that was available here. Answer.com told me I could use rambutan wood. If anyone knows of any other available wood please let me know. Thanks.
  2. [​IMG]   Good evening and welcome to the forum, from a rainy and cool day in East Texas. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

    Most fruit woods are okay. Kalamungay wood isn't! ;)

    Welcome to SMF OldSalt45!  Looks like we came from the same background.  I haven't been back to the Philippines since the early 80's when we still had the bases there.  Flew out of Cubi Point at Subic for a short time. 

    Glad you're here and staying connected to what you love.  I've seen several posts in the past year from folks smoking in the P.I.  Definitely use the search feature to find their posts.  Who knows, you could be neighbors. 

    Have fun!
