"We reckon there's only one way to smoke salmon, and that's the traditional way, using Manuka wood." So begins the ad/case study that shows off the real billboard built on a private farm in Clevedon. The billboard was built with manuka wood, and then set on fire so it could smoke for ages, while catching the eye of drivers passing by. I don't think I've had smoked salmon that was smoked over manuka wood specifically, after watching this I'd honestly love to try it.
