No i did not many thanks..
Many thanks it does make sence, but it feels a bit cheeky, i think.
Not cheeky, and not spamming, Mutley. Keep them coming. I really hope that your neighbours agree to use the garden for growing stuff, or at least a part of it.
I especially love your use of old 5 gallon drums/bottles. We use discarded olive oil cans from our local smokery / deli store. Fiona also keeps those large rectangular water bottles. Cut in half they make excellent cloches
I would love a local smokery , then i would be a vegetable as well. lol getting back to my old roots is my excuse.
what is a cloches ?
A cloche is a cover that you put over young plants to protect them from frost or to encourage early growth. Some are made from glass but clear plastic works just as well. Fiona used garden fleece to protect ours this winter, like a small ploytunnel I guess. So there are many shapes and varieties of cloches.
Mutley, you can buy smokers from fishing tackle shops - not cheap - but if you have a look at the simplicity of the design, I am sure, Mutley, that you could make your own.
If you enjoy salmon or other oily fish, then freshly-smoke it by yourself, serve hot - are just so superior to shop-bought smoked fish. (Or any other foods, come to that!)
You can see a demo of the Lakeland smoker:
- you can see how simple it is.
Yes, Danny, £65 is a lot - that's what we thought.
We've had our 'ABU' smoker - from Sweden - for years now and everyone who has tasted the food that is smoked has gone away and made their own smoker - cheaper that way!!
Sounds like you've done the same thing!
May make a smoker out of a pc tower case as would be tall enought to hang fish,sasauges ect. will have to look into some time soon...
Hi, seahorse, and welcome to our bunch. Thanks for joining in.
Not sure what that video is supposed to be demonstrating but we are definitely fans of hot smoking as opposed to cold. Hot smoking cooks the food (mostly) as it smokes. That's how the marvellous Craster kippers are done and home cured smoked bacon, when we can be bothered to smoke it, that is.
