Greetings from Malaysia

  1. Hello to everyone from the other half of the world!  I am new to the smoking world.  I am a 32yr old mechanical engineer from Kansas and work in the oil and gas industry.  I have always been a griller, but decided 6 months ago to make the switch.  I chose a Primo Oval XL so I could have the best of both worlds.  I have since been relocated to Malaysia.  Unfortunately, this has limited me since my access to wood (and pretty much beef altogether) is all through the internet.  Luckily, I live on an island where seafood, pork, and lamb are all abundant so I think I can make due.

    One thing I am interested in is alternative smoking woods.  Malaysia does not have much in terms of the regulars (oak, hickory, mesquite, pecan, apple, ect).  This has led me on a bit of a hunt for tropical woods that can be used for smoking.  If anyone has suggestions on that let me know.

    Welcome! Any tree with a fruit is usually a safe bet but I would definitely do some research if you don't know much about a particular tree.

    I'm willing to bet many of the the locals use wood for grilling and smoking.  I'll bet you can get a pretty good idea from them.  I agree most fruit woods are going to be what you are looking for.   Thanks for checking in and welcome to the forum.
