A lot of the smokehouses in the UK use dust for cold smoking, just wondered if anyone has any experience hot smoking with dust.

I have used sawdust in cold smoking. I put it in a cast iron skillet on an electric hotplate in the firepit of my offset. Never used it for hot smoking, but I would imagine you'd need a bunch of it, as it will burn very quickly.

Thanks for that, Its not too bad if you add it in thick layers, and only use it for short smokes.

Smokewoodshack dust is used much more in slow cold smoking, for traditional bacon, or kippers.

Use the search http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/search.php and input "cold and smoke" or "cold and smoke and machine" without the quotes, and look at the easy to build cold smokers.

There are a couple of people on amazon.co.uk that have packaged smoke wood for sale, you might track back to the manufacturer via their sales.

If I was in your shoes, I'd look to fruit orchards, and buy the branches and trim them into chunks rather than chips, there are also nut orchards, Hickory included in the UK, stay away from the Walnut wood, it has a bitter and acrid flavor when burnt.
