I am looking for alternatives to using wood chips for smoking meats. I would like the process to actually smoke the meat. Liquid smoke/marinades are not what I'm looking for.
Has anyone heard of any projects or items that could be used? I'm thinking of a more environmentally friendly way to smoke meats without relying on wood such as apple, cherry, hickory or mesquite. The cost of obtaining these woods in some parts of the world make it cost-prohibitive.
