          Being based in Australia, I can and do see the trend, however assuming this site has a majority of the user base in the US, I wanted to see if it was echoed there as well.

            1. Ok I have been sensored for giving some help to persons seeking to locate smoking wood chip. please I would like to distance myself from this individual I am recommending.
              Let me state I love smoke meat, I am a foodie and I missed. Caribbean food, the real authentic kind and I am open to others.
              So I prefer charcoal fire instead of gas/electric. And I have taste other wood cooking and nothing cooking with allSpice(pimento) wood, nothing I say ok. This wood chip is hard to locate. I got help and just sharing ok.
