Why We Are Obsessed with Our QLD Vintage Ironbark

As far as firewood goes, we can’t get enough of our QLD Vintage Ironbark Firewood. Not only is it a fantastic wood for camping, open fireplaces, combustion heaters, wood-fired ovens, and pizza ovens, but the living tree itself is quite interesting as well.

“Ironbark” is a common name for varieties of Eucalyptus trees that have thick, solid bark. Whereas most species of Eucalyptus shed their dead bark each year, Ironbark trees accumulate this dead bark onto the tree. The dead bark dries out, at which time the tree produces a dark red sap called Kino, which fills up the dry bark. …

Smoking with Our Jam

The perfect barbecue is a balance of the right amount of smoke, delicious sauces, and the quality of the meat. As a result, the type of wood used is just as important as the cut of meat. When it comes to smoking meat, everyone has their recommendations, and it’s hard to choose the right bags of firewood. For heavier meats like beef, hardwood is the preferred choice while delicate meats like fish need lighter hardwood or fruitwood. Some people even toe the hard line that it’s not a real barbecue unless it’s done over Hickory, Post Oak, or Mesquite. This …
