Soon there will be dry cured, hickory and apple wood smoked BACON.  The panday is doing a really good job 4 me, no but joints and corner bracing everywhere, makes me happy to over pay him   Secon

We have bacon! 

Well it is done, now all it needs is a coat of paint and the smoke making thingy, going Carcar in the morning hoping I can find lime to add to the cement to make a smoke making thingy. Smoke generator

lots of people use mango wood   

 

 

NO NO NO.

 

Mango wood emits a smoke that is full of potent irritants

NEVER use it to smoke food.

 

A really good smoke wood is coconut, the dense fibrous husk immediately next to the rock hard inner shell , not the loose hairy outer husk.

Yes I did.

We used the very compact husk right next to the 'skull'.

Was as good as any that were smoked with various chips imported from Finland.

Impressed even my two old Finnish buddies when we smoked a side of salmon.

Smoke generator maybe ?? but that sounds so mechanical and advanced when it is just a simple and small concrete dome, I'll put up a photo when I start making that one. 

The lid on the chimney is on a hing to regulate draft of course

A pretty fancy outhouse you got there.

 

 

Ah yeah that reminded me of something, better paint on a sign " don't piss on or in me you twat, you live 5 meters from here and have a fracking CR" so the next door youth thinks twice b4 he whips out the slong.

 

There are 3 houses inside the wall here and the other day I come to park my motor, the young dong is pissing on it, all the while he has a perfectly functional CR just a few steps away.

Nice bit of wood work.

But you don't need a gas hob as big as your photo.

Grab the smallest that will make your chips smolder.

A year or so ago White Gold (or maybe Rustan's) had a whole heap of Morton's Kosher salt and Ice Cream salt, both non iodized.

We used it for both smoking and sausage making.

Yes it is, but one of those stores definitely had a full range of Morton's.

We (Tom from Secret Cove and me) bought almost all of the two non iodized but it was well over a year ago.

Guys in the market will tell you that they can get you non iodized salt but I'd call bs on that.
