    Chicken breast

    I like the Wankle. Cheaper and it works perfect. The balls certainly help on long cooks. Not necessary for steaks and chicken. There is much you can do.

    Chicken breast

    Looks good, I'm waiting till Black Friday to see what deals are on the sous vide sticks. How do you rate your stick? Do the balls make a noticeable different to prevent evaporation/insulation?
  4. I had looked at the Bradley smokers when I was first looking at buying my smoker. Nice concept. 120 pk bradley bisquettes oak works out about £1 per hour plus leccy. Though the review says it drops a new one in every 30mins so might get a few more hours out it.
  5. Whilst trawling the bay I came across this offer which seems to be a good deal a Bradley 2 rack compact smoker for £89.99. I don't have one myself......yet. But i'm tempted! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bradley-2-Rack-Convection-Smoker/174078984240?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D08015381e51b4760823eb6b1eac5e23b%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D174078984240%26itm%3D174078984240%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507 There is an independent review here https://www.theblackpeppercorn.com/2013/08/bradley-2-rack-smoker-product-review/ Might be of interest to someone Cheers N Gone Nick
  6. A couple of points... use a salt calculator for the weight of meat??? I leave my bacon for 10 to 14 days. I put the meat in the bag and pour the mixture into the bag, then by tipping the bag upside down...using the bag to cover the meat....no need to get the mixture on your hands that way. Ice.
  7. I had some shoulder steaks tonight defrosted that noone wanted so trying to turn into a gammon type steak. 2 steaks came in at 1112gms. Once cured I will slice for half thickness. I'm trying for 2.75% salt, 1% sugar and used 0.024% Prague powder #1. I bought some reusable sous vide bags that work well so far as vac pac.. £12 for 20..will leave until next Wed... If I've made a mistake or should try differently let me know... Still haven't worked out how to get the cure totally off my hand and in the bag.
  8. Still waiting for mine to arrive... Teeny bit jealous

    Chicken breast

    The anchor chilli flakes adds a nice smokey chilli taste. Not over powering. A gentle heat. Yummy.
  10. Done 3 pieces of Packington Farm Free Range Pork Legs this morning ranging between 1.2 - 1.4Kg for myself and family. If it tastes as good as the brine and rub smell, it will be gorgeous, I am sure. The house smells of Christmas, with the brine and rub being mixed and boiled. 😀

    Chicken breast

    Chicken breast time again, this time with butter and a half teaspoon of ancho chilli flakes. 66 degs c for 1 hour then ice bath (I use a Tupperware bowl with a chiller block in and cold water, that does the trick. Putting it on now

    Smoking in Somerset

    It's oiled so can stand up to a bit of rain whilst smoking, but it's on castors so just wheel it into the shed when not in use.
  17. Got a few fishing head torches. They tend to be quick low light to avoid blinding other anglers on lake though some selfish ones do not care about that. Needless to say they are unpopular...good idea Ice.
  18. Just bought a rechargeable headlamp on an Amazon lightning deal £8.49 with free prime delivery (valid till midnight tonight). Hopefully help with these dark nights and trudging up the garden to see how it is going.

    I might just stick some brackets to the inside and rest some shelves on those, Some heavy duty Velcro will work fine i think. Will go down local screwfix soon ish. Drill a whole in for the power cable to bulb and a probe hole for smoking salmon in cold weather, brackets ,just need to find some shelving, do not need to be metal, wood is fine. Could hang salmon in there too easy enough. Options galore. Shelves https://www.amazon.co.uk/Marko-Outdoor-Barbecue-Replacement-Garden/dp/B07DVH989W/ref=pd_sbs_79_19?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07DVH989W&pd_rd_r=8a7a2b59-3e70-4358-be98-a08f97590101&pd_rd_w=a3CV2&pd_rd_wg=9zhAI&pf_rd_p=cc188cba-1892-42b3-956f-6c67d0ab7a00&pf_rd_r=REAPZ1TKNJ5HKNSWFZ6X&psc=1&refRID=REAPZ1TKNJ5HKNSWFZ6X
  20. For that size, with the optional doors, £300. That is built to order and delivered in sections on a pallet. They even send a driver end for your screwdriver in with the screws. Minimal assembly. The base, sides and roof are fully complete. You just screw the back posts and sides to the base, attach the two back panels, throw on the central front post, fix the roof down to that lot and then attach the doors. Even the hinges are premounted. Phil.

    Actually why bother with the eco smoker box if you can fit some shelves to the bin that it is good enough?

  23. Ah that’s the only thing don’t they have a lot of holes ?
  24. Ocado Russell side of Salmon half price £10 I have just ordered two, which i topped off with some regular incidentals like non bio washing liquid and some orange juice to make it up to 40 quid. You could easily just buy 4 sides, smoke and freeze the other 2 to smoke later when you run out enough to make 1.7kg of smoked salmon
