    After succesfully cold smoking organic goose breasts last week i am now under going one o the harder meats to smoke.....yeah rabbit.
    I have made a dry cure mix of maldon sea salt, crushed bunches of thyme, twenty five snipped fresh bay leaves and a couple dozen crushed juniper berries and a handful of peppercorns. Left these to cure for just two hours. Now smoking over an African hard wood dust for 4 hours. Will let you alls know how it goes/

    Wow, rabbit is good. Where does one get African hardwood from?

    Let us know the results, would like to give rabbit a shot when I get the new smoker built.[​IMG]
     
  4. Have to be carefull with the tropical hardwoods, some contain toxic substances and volitile oils as I have learned when woodturning certain types.[​IMG]
