    Welcome Dan,
    You'll learn a lot here----These guys & gals are GREAT !

    Spent a year on Oahu, after Vietnam (August 69 to August 70).
    Favorite place to eat was "The Rigger" in Honolulu. Wish I had their recipe for the Teriyaki sauce they made for their steaks!!!! Never had anything before or since even close to as good as that was !

    Welcome Dan, good to have you with us. Spent several years in Hawaii myself, late 80's. Schofield Barracks on Oahu. Lotf of good info for you here. Also, we have an exchange program here where you trade with other members. Would sure like to get some of that Kiawe wood. We would use that when we had bbq's at the airfield, awesome stuff.

    Meathunter....Kiawe is great wood, and I think its the same thing as mesquite...It may be hard to ship Keawe legally out of Hawaii. I used to work as a part time inspector with the US Dept. of Agriculture, and if I remember correctly, any agricultural products that were to be taken back or shipped to the mainland had to be inspected and approved.

    Just thought I'd mention that so as to not cause any anxious moments down the road.

    Welcome aboard.Great site and friendly to boot!!!!
  18. Kiawe is is different from Mesquite. Kiawe is from Peru. Mesquite comesfrom N.Mexico. I grew up using Mesquite, live in Maui now, I love Kiawe, to me a lil sweeter. A good pc of wood will have a lil of the blossom smell to the smoke. Sweet and peppery taste.
    Aloha smokers always welcome in my backyard in Maui
