Ok, i think i see where the problem is.
Lets try this, don't use any manuka wood at this stage.
Manuka is good in very small quantity.
Any meat, poultry or fish will have a bitter taste if you use to much manuka. Use cherry, apple, maple, latter on you can you can experiment with different types of wood.
The wood need to be bone dry, no fresh wood.
And here is video on something important... quality of the smoke. That really is important.


hope that helps, we would like you to become pitmaster soon Thumbs Up

RC, not everyone has a good handle on technology. For instance I've never even used my phone to post on here, I'm sure I could if I needed too though.  LAP, if you need some assistance let me know.

I like joking around but in this instance i was/i'm serious offering help and i'm pleased you have noticed this post. Perhaps direct lbpoacher to link "how to" in this forum.
I'm looking at some vid on tube transferring pic from phone to pc, that might help in first instance.

For transfering files to and from a PC.
 Share a folder on the PC.
On the android phone/tab download and install ES file explorer.
 There are a lot on playstore, useless.
Download here
