Here are a few pics of the last few days' smoking stuff... No pics of the bacon unfortunately, it all got eaten.
You can see my gasket leaks... I need a new one for xmas. Smoking some bacon here:
Smoked some salmon, it turned out pretty darn good, and cost nearly nothing to make (after buying the salmon anyway), just like with bacon, I don't think we'll be buying smoked salmon in the store any more, especially not at 25 eur / kg for the cheap stuff and 50/kg for the nicer stuff.
So this saturday I cooked for a bunch of people that came by to send off a friend who's moving to Lyon. We had poutine, onion rings, pulled pork sandwiches with carolina mustard sauce, and a "father's office" burger clone (25% brisket, 25% sirloin, 50% short rib, topped with that bacon you see smoking above, plus emmental, a blue cheese cream spread, arugula (roquette), and caramelized onions). All home made, lots of work, but everybody had a good time.
