    Pohutukawa is good,
    oak is even better, gives good colour and not at all bitter taste as manuka sometimes can be.

    Bitterness is from having the smoker too well sealed....you have to let the smoke out too!

    I have been doing half brown sugar half sweet chilli sauce of late, oddly the Wife prefers the sweet chilly (hates hot stuff like chilly) while I prefer the brown sugar (drowns anything bland in Tobasco sauce)

    I’d forgotten about this thread but as it’s been bought back here is a Kahawai with brown sugar and rum. Was bloody nice too.

    I like the idea of rum smoked fish - if the Mrs likes the resulting fish, it may justify buying more rum!

    Going to try this.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....
