Can I borrow some guava wood at Eggtoberfest?

I need guava wood for one of my cooks for Eggtoberfest, and as we were going through things this weekend, we discovered we're completely out. Is there anyone going who has some that I could borrow? We could use a few (3-5) chunks. Actually, I might as well say I'm not borrowing it, since I won't be giving it back, but you'll be first on the list for a sample of the food I make with it... ;)

Let me know and we'll see how to hook up...thanks! Can't wait to see everyone

    Hi QBabe,
    I have some but won't be at the fest I could mail it, not sure it will arive in time as Monday is a holiday and no mail. Im in Jupiter and could get it to anyone that is going from south FL. Let me know if I can help as it would be my pleasure. 561-662-4070

    I will include some in our stuff. See you Friday!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    I could have used a substitute, but it'll be better to have the guava...

    We likely won't make it in time for the Varsity lunch, but maybe we can hook up afterwards, before the meet and greet? It's for our first cook on Saturday am, so if we can grab it on Friday, that'll be great! Are you staying at the Comfort? Do you still have my cell phone number? Shoot me an email and we'll exchange them again.

    Thanks...looks like Jay has me covered.

    Thanks for offering, Jim. Looks like Jay is going to be able to bring some, so that will probably be easier since I won't have to worry about the mail. Really appreciate the offer. Say hi to Kay for me!

    Morning Tonia:

    We are actually going up Thursday afternoon, but not staying at the Comfort Suites. We are at a Homewood Suites at the next exit North. I'm sure we can meet up somehow on Friday, I'll have a few chunks of Guava in a ziplock for you.

    More in the the bacchettababe address.

    Have a GREAT day!

    Hey Jay if you want to complicate things you can give it to Mike (PBM) and we can get it to Tonia. We are staying at the CS. If I can think of an even more roundabout way I'll let you know :huh:
  • Guava wood?

    And I thought I was the king of obscure ingredients! :woohoo:

    What's even cooler is that a few Eggers said, "Oh, sure, no problem, I'll bring it!"

    It's a really nice wood to smoke with. Guava Greg (another forum member) sells it - he's in Hawai. It's hard to describe the flavor it gives, but it's very nice. If you look up his profile, he should have a link there where you can order some.

    I agree, it's pretty cool that we can put a call for help and have it answered without hesitation. What a great "family" to have...!
