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.
