I got a FoxHunter BBQ Charcoal Smoker, it's a simple one but I hope that it would allows me to smoke some bacon, ribs, fish, chickens,...
My first 2 kg of bacon are been curing for about 6 days. I did a dry curing using salt, brown sugar, pink salt, black pepper, and some fresh garlic.
I have a question about wood, Can I use a "natural" wood direct from a tree?
My neighbor have an apple tree in there garden, and I was thinking to ask him for a branch and use it to smoke, instead of buying online...
Is it ok to use this kind of "fresh wood"?
