    Butcher paper

    Aye, and £7.50 P&P for the 20ft sample. That's not a bargain :) (and 29 cookies, which seems more like storing a whole website :) )
  2. I was thinking a firepit was more like this: https://www.burford.co.uk/outdoor-living/bbqs-kadais-firepits/fire-pit-saturn-70/ [unreal prices; I just knew that they sold them :) ] or https://www.burford.co.uk/outdoor-living/bbqs-kadais-firepits/recycled-kadai-with-high-and-low-stands/
  3. Here's a similar (identical?) cheaper version of the ThermoPro https://www.amazon.co.uk/TOPELEK-Thermometer-Digital-Cooking-Instant/dp/B07ZKXXTQS/r
  4. We bought from Farmison in their New Year "sale". I was impressed with what we got, but we didn't buy any large chunks. We ordered from these guys 3 or 4 weeks ago, and it was good enough for us to be about to order more. Not a large choice online. They're reasonably local, so the box shouldn't spend more than the overnight in transit, though it's supposed be cooler this week, and they use that wool insulation. Again, we didn't buy anything large, but the pork belly strips were great, so getting slab (and shoulder) this time. They've also got pork cheeks. The bacon - especially

    Lamb Hot Pot

    Nice vid, thanks. Food looks good. I liked the way you stacked the potatoes on edge. I'm always there laying them flat, trying to make a nice spiral, and failing 🙃
  6. Take the vacpac. Price is right :) Drain the juice, then wrap the meat in a couple of teatowels. Leave in the fridge. The meat will dry and mature. Maybe change the teatowels, but let it stay in the fridge for as long as you're comfortable. You should end up with something different from your usual vacpac wetness.
  7. Very hard to see what the bread mix was. You paused on it, but I couldn't read it. Be good to have a list of ingredients, either in the video or as a link.
  8. Ooh, got a link to the recipe? Curried cauliflower or cabbage here is using up leftovers. Microwave to get it hot, then add to oil/turmeric/curry powder/seeds (cumin-kalonji-mustard-whatever). Maybe garam masala.
  9. It'll be a generic belt. You need the size :) If there's a number printed on what's left of the belt, you're in. Otherwise, here's a link from a quick search: https://www.drivebeltshop.co.uk/how-to-measure-a-drive-belt.html

    Deal on salmon

    [OT] Deals such as this salmon get posted in various threads and so are easy to miss. Would it be worth having a topic for posting deals? "Heads Up", or some such? Mind, there's lots of topics already :)
  11. No experience, so ignore me, but putting things in cold water means they defrost quickly, so I'd not bother waiting. After all, the bird's going to be in the brine for ?24 hours.
  12. I've made this recipe in a slow cooker, but with a half shoulder. Works well.
