SMOKING MEAT IN PHILIPPINES?

Postby MapSangrines » Wed Sep 26, 2018 10:05 am

Hi everyone! :salut: I was wondering if there are people in the Philippines here?

So how do i start? Uhm recently i became very interested in smoking meat... but looking at YT videos i find it hard to know which wood i could use in smoking here in the philippines.. been trying to look for some FB pages i could get myself into but failed... so this would be my desperate move being here... so far ive tried using "watery apple fruit" since it was the only available wood at the time... [im not sure if its also available in you're country; but it gave my meat this watery/refreshing and sweet taste.] Online i found out that mango tree is poisonous to use for smoking [which is very abundant in my place] so that kinda set some precautions on what wood to use from here on... At the moment we have Jack Fruit, Java Plum and Lime trees around our place... any one can suggest what i can use and cant among these trees? and maybe other locally woods you can suggest.. THANKS!

Haven't read through it in a while but may help you determine what you have and what can be used .

I believe lime might be okay; don't people smoke with citrus woods? What sort of plum is Java Plum? In general, fruit wood is okay. Also, do you have pimiento trees?

This is a wood smoke chart. Hope it helps!

If sugar cane is grown in the Philippines, give it a go. I’ve used sugar cane many times for a light smoke flavor especially on poultry. The one issue with sugar cane is that it has to be fairly fresh or must be frozen for later use - it can’t be stacked stored like oak or pecan because it will rot. I’ve had several zip lock bags of sugar cane in my freezer in the past. Reminds me that harvest time is around the corner and I need to restock next trip to South Louisiana. :D

I cut the cane in 6 to 8” pieces, split the pieces, then add to the top of the fire just before putting the meat on. You don’t have to wait for clear smoke with sugar cane. Can add more cane during the cook if you like.

Some pics of sugar cane added to coals.

If you do a search on "Whole Hog Roast, Philippine style -(Typhoon update)" You will see some pics of some philipinos cooking a whole pig using coconut shells as the fuel source. Not sure how well that will work for smoking meat in a pit, but may be worth a shot. I am sure there are several others on here that may chime in.
