Just a quick clarification. When you say Red Gum are you talking about River Red Gum that grows in the Riverina etc or the Forest Red Gum that is a mountain species and grows in my neck of the woods - the highlands.

Yes.

The "Red Gum" in WA is Marri and it is lighter than the Eastern Varieties.
While we are at it Marri can be upgraded to include Fish, Cheese and Smallgoods.

Hi Guys, had to remove a leopard tree from the backyard ... the roots found a pipe to crush :-(
My question is, can it be used for smoking chunks or chips?
"Caesalpinia ferrea"
Hopefully picture helps:

I find your lack of smoke disturbing.

Hi folks...new to smoking & new to this forum...
Aussie Day saw me smoke up a leg of lamb...
Made up an aussie wood blend as an experiment.
Tassie Oak & Jarah.... both soaked over night in Lemon Myrtle tea!
Slightly bitter/citrus taste to the smoke flavour.
Not too bad at all!

It wasnt a black tea... Just dried lemon myrtle leaves infused in boiling water... A great tea on it own... So thought it would be a worthy addition to the wood

Hi guys, love the bbq forum, been reading your material for some time.

Have searched high and low for an answer to my question, to no avail.

Am relatively experienced with the Weber charcoal+smoking wood chunk, but am brand new to stick burning. Tried my first dry run stick burn today in my Hark Texas Pro Pit.

Temps were fine, but the smoke coming from the chimney was overpowering, acrid and I would not cook on it. I was using Angophora Costata, the smooth-barked apple which is very common in my area in Sydney.

Has anyone used this species before? I am trying to work out if it was an issue with 1) the species 2) the timber not being seasoned completely or 3) my technique.

Any info you have on the angophora as a smoking timber will be most welcome. I have access to a large lot of the timber so if it is good, I'll split and season.

Thx in advance,
jools

I am no expert but my reading into how to drive an offset, suggests you need a small hot fire starting with pile off charcoal and then adding small pieces off wood that catch and burn quickly, reducing the amount of smoke you get, some people put there pieces on top of the firebox to supper heat and dry the wood so it catches quicker hope it was a help

Hi all, I'm on a half lap of the country with the fam and we've been burning a lot of mulga (acacia aneura) for firewood. Excellent coals for cooking but just wondering if anyone has experience smoking with it? I like the smell but I don't have enough experience yet to know what it might go with. Are there a lot of differences in the smoke from different wattles/acacias?
Cheers.
Jono.

I just picked up bunch of wood on drive by from someones nature strip. I'm no good at identifying trees but am looking to see if I can smoke with it, or just use it for fire wood. It will need seasoning though.

I'd appreciate it if someone could ID the wood for me :-)

That could be Wattle or Silky Oak, but they are only a guess from what I have in my timber pile down the back. :?
