Brine pork belly and loin for 14 d...

Re: Cold smoker cooling

If your ambient temp is high I would be putting the cooling on the air intake, perhaps an old fridge evaperator or a motorbike radiator hooked up to a pond pump in a drum, you could ice that up. Cooling on the smoke will help but it wont counteract the high ambient temps, over 35 I am guessing?

Re: Cold smoker cooling

I guess you are going to mount the smoke generator outside the cabinet, the length of the pipe between the smoke generator and the cabinet can affect the temp, the longer the pipe the cooler the smoke. You are going to need airflow in the cabinet, consider fitting a small blower or fan this will als...

Re: Brining - Does this negate all other flavourings?

If I am going to use a dry rub or do a baste while cooking a chook I'll brine it first, when doing a marinade i do it overnight and don't usually brine.The real question is how you do the beer can thing, at best its a gimmick at worst a health hazard. The best way to achieve the same effect is a rac...

Re: Beefeater pizza oven destroying pizza stones!

A pizza stone should handle the heat better than a terracotta tile, are you letting the stone slowly warm up in the oven as it comes to temp? You cant put a cold stone in a hot oven.
