Wood Chips for Smoking

Looking for wood chips for smoking meat. Homepro..Do Home & Global do not carry them. Homepro did but no longer does. Any ideas?

Lamyai is good for smoking. I don't know any outlets other than the one you mention but lamyai shouldn't be too difficult to find out of town.

Some say that mango wood is to be avoided. Pity, there's plenty around.

If anyone knows a shop that supplies wood chips for smoking I'd also be glad to hear about it.

Saf, yes I have heard that Lamyai is good. But my wife tells me that they are not common to Korat. She says they grow in the north. I have heard of coconuts being used. But I get conflicting info...some saying to use the husk...others saying to use the shell. I would think the husk would be the fiber type outer covering, which would burn too fast. Maybe when they say husk they are talking about the shell. Or vice versa.

True Value in Pattaya and Bangkok sale wood chips. They have Mesquite (strong flavor but good) and Hickory. Check the True Value site Thailand, and call ahead to make sure they are in stock. I used Mango wood to smoke a whole hog in my smoker and it did great.

Just thought I would let everyone know that I have discovered that Macaam ( Tamarind) wood works very well for smoking. It is readily available also.
