    As much as I enjoy cold smoking meats, cheese and butter It's really important to match your smoker with a smoke generator, and pick the right of wood for the job. My drum smoker is my go-to for ham, bacon, Buckboard, sausages etc. It has plenty of room for hanging, a lot of volume and most...

    MiniMax Smokehouse

    Here it is, my modest urban smokehouse that uses a MiniMax Green Egg as a fire pit. I had a heck of a time making it work how I wanted it to, went through 3 redesigns but now it finally works like a charm. Why green egg? I wanted something portable, reliable/predictable and requiring little...

    1st Pork Belly Bacon

    Well my smoking brethren, I tried pork belly bacon for the first time. And it was a success. I must say that of all things I have smoked, outside of cheese, this has got to be one of the easiest I have done.

    Latest batch of Lox

    Got one last nice cold weekend, so I took the opportunity to turn the last 3 salmon fillets I got from a coworker into lox. Used the exact same method as last time, with the addition of adding dill to the wet brine and sprinkling it with dill before the vacuum seal. I wasn't sure why one of my...
