    I really like the ready ground coriander you can buy and use it in my own homemade rub I use for pork and beef, works great and nice flavour i find.

    Lovely bit of colour on that, looks very tasty.
  4. Pretty tasty, but the ribs took a bit of trimming, like the Bookers one do. Nothing wrong with that, but i prefer mine trimmed and just the membrane to pull off the back. 😀 I have used them since for some steak which was nice also. If your get off your train from Nottingham at Brum? Thoroughly recommend trying the Birmingham indoor market just over the road from the station. I hadn't been there for many, many years. It has changed a bit over the years but was really pleasantly surprised on the different meats to choose that you don't see at most places, along with the cuts and sizes of your usual meats. They were selling the big untrimmed ribs for £3.50 a rack. I got goat shoulder for £4.50 kg and a couple of necks for £5 each. Wanted to buy a whole shin of beef with the bone in for £25 but I had a feeling it would have been to big for my smoker. With all the African Caribbean, Chinese and Middle East butchers and customers the selection really impressed me. The fish market is just off it also with some weird and wonderful fish and seafood along with what you normally expect also.
  5. Thanks for that, I have seen the pre cut ones and they would be more cost effective, for a trial. Just not sure what sort and shapes and sizes of meat they would wrap up to, when pre cut? i am thinking like whole shin of beef, goats shoulders, legs of lamb and chuck roast types of cuts for them and they can be quite big and bulky.
  6. Looking to try some Butchers Paper to see if it is any better than foil or parchment paper that I have used in previous cooks. Anyone had any experience of it and worth buying? Looks to be about £25 for a 50m roll. Does that seem about the right price, or better value to be had elsewhere?
  7. Looks great Simon, love a nice piece of gammon, just as nice cold the next day as well.
  8. It is good stuff but not traditional lumpwood more sticks, very good stuff but just a heads up. Photo of an earlier order of mine to illustrate I am going to use this offer to try the Big K Cocoshell briquettes, though which are part of the 3-2 offer also
  9. Great price when you consider shipping for a lump like that. Even if it needs a bit of cleaning
  10. 1+ a few 😀 I will be cooking, still hoping to convince 1 of my party to do some cooking as well.
  11. Getting closer, just looked at my booking and the 60 day payment of balance on my booking will be due next week or so, I reckon?
  12. That's kind of you but no need, they will be more than happy with a plate of meat. I believe they are planning a little tea party for her earlier in the day, whilst I am cooking. But thank you, for the thought anyway.
