    Default Anyone here cook with a meat smoker?

    I was wondering what wood is available for this type cooking? Haven't noticed anything out there but haven't focused on trying to find it til now.

    Also, a homemade marinate....any ideas?

    I just read that the wood of the almond tree is excellent for smoking meat and it is very plentiful in the DR.

    Snuffy:

    I have one you can have if you come by and pick it up.
    It is already split and hinged with holes in the bottom.

    To those of you who have never used "Mesquite" wood for smoking, cooking, it gives the meat a very nice flavor andit is 'hard wood". There is an over-abundance of this wood in the DR, expecially in the North-East around Monte Cristi. Give it a try, you'll like it. Also makes Excellent charchol.

    Bill, that would be a bonus. You will be my first rib tester. Mesquite wood...do I need to go all the way to Monte Cristi for the wood or can it be purchased here? Anyway, I will give you a call. Thanks.

    Snuffy;

    If you know what a Mesquite tree looks like, you can cut your own (or have it done), let the wood dry thoroughly before using.
    I don't know the local name for "Mesquite", however.
    Look forward to seeing you again.

    Tom,
