Up date: aquired both hickory and apple wood chips through member Rugby. He also was able to supply a bottle of liquid hickory smoke. Very nice guy and if anyone gets a chance to meet him, please don't pass on the oportunity. If you happen to have a love for smoking or smoked foods, you'll get along nicely. I was also able to meet his beautyful wife, her Mother, and her brother. All very nice and they met my wife and the Women had a great talk while the men did the serious food smoking discussion. Will all get together again.

Thank you to all that made reference to fresh dill being in some stores. I found it easily and durring our stops at other markets noticed it regularly. I will end up drying it but now I have an ample supply on hand. Thank you all.

See, just ask and people here are full of valuable information and come out tohelp a fellow member out if they can. Oh, I also come across horseradish at Carefour. Who would have thought. Not cream style but the real thing.

So, we will be returning back to Bandar Lampung Friday with bags stuffed with meat, smoking material, dill, horseradish, a couple 750ml bottles of, er, flavoring, (thats how they label it to keep the gov off their backs and sell it cheaper than anyone who does it as a drinkable product) a creat full of products to get the baking Women really busy. So, nice to buy butter in bulk, and find things like unflavored gelatin, glutin, and assortments of baking supplies. Going to be busy after we finally get home including enjoying some whole ribeye I picked up for only 165ribu per kilo. Some nice pork loins for making some Canadian style bakon so the Woman gets off my back about wanting propper eggs benidict. She can do the English muffins and I can do the bacon and sauce. Oh, life is getting better. It better because I'm broke now.

So glad you were able to find all the luxuries! I had so much stuff to bring last month, that I had to leave 30kg of food items. Carnitas, pulled pork, spicy cajun sausages, cheddar cheese were some of the most painful things I left.

That's almost sinfull. I was so far over when I came from the US I had to add a third suitcase and paid for the overage. Still had to leave some things behind so I took out some clothes. 81 kilos total.

I plead guilty to having brought back 18 pounds of pulled pork this summer...

What is pulled pork as opposed to plain old pork pork?

It's pork that has been deliciously roasted (preferably with a nice BBQ marinade)until exquisitely tender, then pulled apart into shreds, for the most mouthwatering dish imaginable. A classic Southern dish is a pulled-pork sandwich on squishy white bread (ordinarily an abomination, but somehow right in this particular instance), dripping with BBQ sauce.

Hawaiians have adopted this dish and made it their own - "kalua pork" is what they call it. Happily, it can be bulk-purchased at the local Costco. (Don't you have in-laws residing on the Big lsland? Ask them about kalua pork - unless they don't eat pork for some reason, they'll know!)

Slow cooking is key in pulled pork.

Could be wrong, but I think I had some in a pu pu. It was not referred to as pulled pork, but I cannot recall the Hawaiian name. Maybe it was kalua pork.

Thanks for the explanation.

Kalua pork or more locally referred to as kalua pig. Pupu should be one word and refers to any starter/appetizer, You may have had a kalua pig pupu at a luau although normally it would be a main course. No matter how you refer to it, it is delicious or ono.

I had pulled pork in Australia for the first time, it really is quite delicious, this lot don't know what they are missing, but I'm surprised that some of you weren't asked for an import license on the amount of food you are bringing in

The weird thing is that food (unlike Oz) is quite alright over here; but start with two bottles of perfume in a gift wrap and hell breaks loose.

I came in with almost 10 kilos of cheese and the same amount of summer sausage and cooked sausages. The family helped immediately with the cheese and basically cleaned it up in a little over a week. Had some hid after seeing themjust helping themselves to it. They had the sausage in hand when I quickly informed them they all contained some or all pork. One stillenjoyed some but we were able to hang on to them a lot longer then the cheese. Never again will I offer information on what's packed in a suitcase. Had some other food items too like the crackers and things to eat with the sausage and cheese as well as some nice selections of knorr swiss sauces. Now, it's allgone so we need to get smoking and baking to get going again.

someone mention perfume? My wife got a big hassel not so much about two small bottles of perfume but the assortment of those little plastic sip straw sized samples. She got them in though.

I only brought 2x 32k luggage this time. When I fly F, I get 3x 32kg, which works out much better.

I always bring a bunch of wrapped See's chocolate to give as gifts. Also wife's and daughters birthday, plus Christmas gifts. I left 1/3 of my clothes.

Also left EVOO, kids birthday bag goodies, good bagels, tortillas, and I'm sure more stuff.

The pupu I had was a banana leaf wrapped lunch meal from a small roadside stand off route 11 near Honaunau on the Big Island -- working class fare and setting. I have never done the luau sort of thing common in tourist come-ons.

There are tourist luaus (never been to one) and real ones with friends and family. Big difference in the two, if you ever get a chance to go to a real one, I'm sure you would enjoy it.

Sudah, among my group of friends and family such get togethers are not thought of or referred to as luaus.

That's unfortunate if it happened in Hawaii, I mean in the sense of keeping the local culture. When we imu a pig for a baby's first birthday or a special occasion it would always be thought of and referred to as a luau

I would appreciate it if you would stop denigrating my family traditions simply because they do not conform to your views on what passes for authentic.
