  4. Hey T.
    Im in Thailand as well. Spend my time between Pranburi and Rayong. There is a lot of stuff to smoke here....but certain things were used to buying in the west can add up......beef....the more traditional woods.....
  5. Hi Gregory

    Ya just getting started...I have a house in north eastern thailand close to sakon nakhon in a small town called phankon.Any suggestiones what i can use for smoke?bought some coconut chips to try,not sure what else is available here.Ordered curing salt for bacon from the to be a fun and tasty hobby I think :)


  6. [​IMG]   Good morning and welcome to the forum, from a fogy and cold day here in East Texas. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything .

  7. Hey Tim
    You can buy woodchips.....hickory cheap they are about 200b a bag. I would get a few sessions out of each bag. I get them from HomePro...also villa market has them at times....they all seem to come from True Value Hardware.....There is a guy that is making pellets in Rayong. I was given a bag by a guy who swears by them and I could get his number for you if you would like....Im busy for the next five days...out of town.
    let me know if you get the curing salt in. I here its banned. So best if a friend brings it with him....Im wanting to start on my owm bacon soon as well.

    I would think some nut woods would or might be good to smoke with. Maybe they grow coffee there? I have heard of eucalyptis being pretty good too. I would look for anything that has edible fruit on it and experiment.
  10. Hi G

    Ya I would like the number for those pellets if you can,i did recieve my curing salt already Prague Powder #1  (curing salt #1) i bought from a guy on ebay

    got it in about a week here is the link

    kinda expensive about $40...

    1 lb bag ...does about 400 lbs of meat so 10 cents a pound for the cure I can live with :)

    I am going to homepro today will have a look for the wood chips...

    Thanks for the input

    Tim :)

  13. Hey Willie. Some of those sausages are pretty good....they use rice and boatloads of garlic and they ferment the pork....sounds kind of gross I know but not bad and good with ice cold beer......Timberjet, your right...there are diffrent kinds of wood here as well. I have read the other threads regarding would in Thailand and the guys seem to know a lot more than me......I had a beach bbq rib and burger joint so I stalked up on wood and still have a boatload to start of my next place..
    Thanks for the info on the Prague powder Tim......Maybe we could do a small trade some salt for wood.....Anyways lets stay in touch and swap stories...
    Regards Guys!

    Hey All

    Bumping this thread!  Am new here on the forum and moved to Thailand full time this year, down in Bang Saphan.

    Any updates on sourcing things appreciated!  Not far from Hua Hin so Homepro is available, the one in Prachuap doesn't carry anything other than charcoal

    Heard coconut husks & shells can work good.  Don't have a smoker here yet, container coming next year when we build, but looking into building a temp smoker in the meantime, pork, chicken and seafood so cheap would like to smoke them!
