    Doesn't this want to make you cry...

    Callow Smoker Review

    When I was made aware of the Callow smoker I must confess to being a little sceptical. It is being sold for ~£85 and in the pictures it looked quite small. It is being marketed as: I ordered it and 2 days later it was delivered... What was in the box? The smoker was well packed and came in...

    Beware of labelling

    You need to be very careful when buying curing products to read the labels before using. I just purchased some German Salami Seasoning from Sausagemaking.org thinking that I was just buying a spice mix (as you would at Weschenfelders). There was nothing on the Web site that indicated that it was...

    Comparing chicken home brining methods. Is it a science or an art?

    Brining chickens before you smoke them is supposed to give them better texture and to leave them more moist after cooking. Several times I have tried bring chickens before smoking and on each occasion I have either not noticed any difference in the end result or they have come out too salty...

Even though I have asked the same question several times in different ways...
