Smoking in Australia

I have just started using a cookshack 50 in Adelaide Australia. I am wondering if there is anyone else cooking bbq in Australia. I am having difficulty with supply of smoking chips. I have found weber brand chips in hickory, these are expensive. It would be difficult to import woodhips into Australia as customs will not allow wood with bark. Has anyone in Australia found a local supplier of suitable smoking wood?
I have found the cost of ribs to be much higher than expected. In the US the spare ribs were about $2 per pound at Costco. Here they are at least double the price despite not being particularly popular. Has anyone found a supplier of ribs at a more reasonable price in Aust?
Original Post
I believe there is another poster named dundee who is from Australia. Maybe you could use pellets instead of chips. Cookshack & CandySue both handle those. Donna reads the forum here and should be chiming in here anytime.

Welcome to the group.

Adelaide, wonderful town. Lived in Canberra for two years and traveled a lot.

When I lived there, they didn't even sell ribs. I made friends with a local butcher and gave him some ribs in exchange for helping me with a supply. Of course, I had to go in the back and carve the first hog to show him how I wanted the ribs cut...

So I'd suggest checking with the local butchers, getting to know them and maybe offering to give them some smoked meats in exchange for a good price.

Smokin'
g'day neilc.
i live at gatton near brisbane. if you bought your cs through smok-king ovens then you know they have a supply of hickory, oak, and beech chips as free samples come with the smoker. smo-king have the exclusive rights to cs ovens in oz. did you buy it from them or second hand privately?

i had great success using australian native timbers. blackbutt, mountain ash (tassie), iron bark, bush oak, for smoking trout and nitrate brined chickens. (ive had mixed results since ive tryed to smoke chooks without brining in nitrates.) most eucalypts seem to be good for smoking. i can't reccomend any softwoods though but there would be some. try the hardwoods on cheap cuts first. i have even used sawmill sawdust that was from a variety of hardwood native timber (stringy bark, messmate, blue gum, tallowood, brush box, etc) and it worked just fine. do be careful with the cs though. it is a REALLY efficient smoker and you only need a small ammount of wood.
this forum is pretty cool eh? makes you realise how far behind we are compared to the yanks in this smoking caper.
have you smoked food before? if so what?
commercially?

good luck. you'll get all the help you need here. these blokes.... they all "da bomb"!
not my idea.
the first settlers had to smoke/preserve with something!
blackbutt was used at the dorrigo ham and bacon factory for half a century till it closed down. australias trout industry (far south eastern oz) uses mostly mountain ash.

is a vapor bad? use too much of any wood and it will be too strong.

you will find that even with the sudden availability of imported wood, that vast majority of smoking here in oz , commercially and amatuers, is done with native hardwoods. i will go so far as to say , that the more sophisticated the australian smoking industry becomes the less we'll use imported timber and we'll embrace our unique , defininig, native timbers.

oh, there is a peppermint gum (eucalypt). has all sorts of possibilities eh?
a list of eucalypts!

just asked a simple question requiring a simple answer. The Floridians on here might be able to tell you which particular eucalyptus to which I am referring. With the one I am thinking of,I might as well smear the meat with Vicks vaporub as to use that wood to smoke.
kathye
the eucalyptus oil is from the leaves NOT the wood. old timers would drop a fresh picked leaf from a tree just as the billy boiled to add spice to tea. burning wood smells noting like vicks. it smells like home to me. eucalypt woodsmoke is a wonderful smell.

i wouldn't think of smearing meat with apple or fruit if fruit trees were suggested to me. some people just like to try and be funny all the time i 'spose. but kathy you are hilarious at times.
Ah, controversy, don't we just love it.

Hey not many yanks know anything about eucalyptus (much less even spell it). All we know is that everything we buy has it in it for the aroma.

The forum is about education, so educate. Maybe some people didn't know the oil came from the leaves.

Got a good laugh:

Actually I smear meat with fruit all the time. Helps me win contests, so don't knock it. Natural fruits and sugars make some wonderful sauces and bastes. Compotes, jellies, jams, etc all made from the fruit of a fruit tree. Sounds silly to rub this on meat?

And appreciate a copied list of varieties, but it really doesn't help at all, what's the purpose of the list, if certain ones are good for smoking, educate us and let us know more. If you're wanting to export it and have us try it, you need to do some research and offer some actually experiences and it would help. A copied list doesn't.

And let's keep the post on point, not get personal, RULES OF THE FORUM. If you want to get personal, take it off line.

You friendly neighborhood moderator.

Smokin'
I do not take offense.I am hoping that dundee knows that. I too use fruit jams,syrups and jellies on the outside of meat quite often.
Please do not take offense,Pete, as I wouldn't want that.I apologize in Public for all to read for my blunder.It certainly was not meant as a reflection on the country of Australia.
I did not know about the oil as Smokin' indicated. You,too,have been hilarious at times dundee.. Let's figuratively shake hands and forgive ok? KathyE
perhaps i sounded more offended than i was. i guess i feel im not being taken seriously. i apologise kathye for growling at you. your hand is shaken.

smokinokie. mum used to make the most delicious braise by putting some chuck steak in an oven dish with a tin of tomato soup and 1/2 tin of jam. usually plum or fig, but i remember apricot also. a splash of soy sauce. foil and into oven for a period then de foiled and cooked till reduced to a thick gravy. it was great with mashed potato and peas n pumpkin.

i have already suggested the good gum trees that i know are good for smoking!! (there are many more that i don't know of) the reason i sent the complete list was to show the variety of gum trees .(gum trees are eucalypts and easier to spell).

still, i see no one interested in having a go.
dudee is right eucalyptus {gum tree} is all we use here in tasmania can't go passed it,you should be able to get it any where in australia just ask for "tasmanian oak" its the best.be carefull of some fruit trees. because they have been sprayed for so long they could have a build up of chemicals.
Great point about the spraying of fruit trees, common problem here too.

Now you guys have me home sick for Australia. Ah the smell of the trees, the howling of the male Koala's. What was the name, King Island Dairy? Man that's some awesome stuff, near Taz isn't it?
Nice to hear that there's a couple of others down here in Oz that share my passion!!!! I'm from Asheville, North Carolina, but I've lived in Australia for 25 years, currently in Perth, Western Australia. I find that the local BBQ's Galore stocks a variety of types of woodchips, including hickory, mesquite, apple, and cherry. Camping stores often have different types of sawdust that they sell with their fish smokers also. I get my hickory from Smo-king ovens in Sydney, it's not extremely expensive, and it lasts for ages since the CS's don't use much wood.

Dundee, I didn't read all the woods on your list, but did you mention jarrah???? I've never smoked meat with it yet, but I keep meaning too, because I love the smell of that smoke. I used to cook on it a lot when I went camping, and it did a great job.

NeilC, if u want to conserve ur supply of hickory but still get a good amount of smoke generated, I've had a lot of sucess mixing woods. For example, I often use one chunk of hickory, a handful of mesquite chips, and a small handful of European Beech. This has worked well for me on a variety of types of meat, including ribs, chicken wings, and pork tenderloin. Give it a try.

Cheers,

Micah Monasmith Smiler
BTW, here's the website for Smo-King Ovens. They stock all of the accessories for the CS series as well, although this is not seen on the website. If you call the phone number on the website, they will be able to help you with supply of hickory as well as any accessories you might need.

Smo-King Ovens

Cheers,

Micah

he he he he..... Big Grin Big Grin NOW THAT'S FUNNY!!

so, are we saying it's fine to smoke with Gum? Is it safe to smoke with "CEDAR? I thought cedar was not good to smoke with?....

dan
I wouldn't use cedar.We have red cedar around here and it is what they use in "cedar chests".I don't know about white cedar but as Smokin' mentioned, we have tons of pecan around here.
I wonder if what I call scrub oak could be used? It is,I think,the same as blackjack. Do you know Smokin'?
The rule of thumb for woods is to use a fruit or nut hardwood. Evidently eucalyptus trees are somewhat like that. As has already been said, when Yanks hear eucalyptus, we think of eucalptus products used as aromatics, like to clear out your sinuses!

This is so interesting, to hear from Oz! I love Australia, and I am crazy about Tasmania. You have lots of apple wood and honey, both great to use with que. I want to come there and meet Que'rs! Maybe when we get this kid out of school ...

Maybe I just don't get the cedar slab smoking thang! If the cedar don't add anything to the finished product, what is the point?

Maybe someone will chime in and tell us the virtues of smoking on a cedar plank and add a photo also.

Y'all get any storms around Searcy yesterday? Only 3/4" rain here, first since Rita.

Cool
