JamesF Posted December 28, 2021 Share Posted December 28, 2021 You're absolutely right: Richard Osman's new "Thursday Murder Club" book. How did you know? Err, no, actually At my wife's suggestion my in-laws gave me a ProQ eco smoker. I've been meaning to set up some sort of smoker for years, but you know, life, children, work, that sort of stuff... I was also given Jo Hampson's "Smoking Food at Home" and Jake Levin's Smokehouse Handbook which kept me occupied whilst half the Atlantic seemed to be falling on my particular patch of West Somerset. Anyhow, as soon as the weather dries out a bit I shall be trying a few things. Probably cheese and some garlic from the veggie plot first, but I also have a few chickens that are shortly due to head towards the freezer so I might have to see if I can do anything with some of those. One thing I will absolutely have to do is smoke some more chiles specifically to smoke. Once I have a bit of experience with cold smoking then I'll look at building a hot smoker as well. I'm not sure how long the eco-smoker will last given that it's just cardboard, but I can quite easily knock up a new box if necessary and I just happen to have some racks from a dead oven that would allow me to make a slightly larger one.
