Thats a good idea, they use that flavouring alot in the states.
I had a whole lot of teatree which was lovely in my charcoal smoker.
I bought a bunch of different woods from Mitre10 Mega in Botany for my charcoal smoker but they're expensive and I'd prefer chunks over chips.
Apple is my favourite so far, seems to work well with everything. Cherry is OK but has a weird banana fruity thing going on. I got the classics also, hickory and mesquite, but haven't used them much.
I don't dislike tea tree but when I was young we had a friend who would always give us fish that had been smoked with it, that's cemented in my brain so everytime I have something tea tree smoked it reminds me off, and tastes, fishy. Which sucks because it does give a nice smoke.
I've had some rather nice cider made from free apples which came from a Central Otago orchard. I think late in the season they basically are paying people to clear the trees so they just tell you to back the car up and start picking.
You could try contacting some orchards in your area since this is probably the right time of the year.
