One stray piece of wire swallowed is a good way to perforate your intestine and cause you all kinds of trouble.

Re: Storing brine

It shouldn't be necessary to store brine unless you have a Wiltshire cure thats full of salt loving bacteria, a "living brine".( sort of like a sourdough brine)
More for traditional Ham, Bacon and Gammon making.

Re: 2013 - America's Best Potato Salad Challenge

Best one I make
Has toasted slivered almonds and sliced matchsticks of bacon (overcooked and crispy)
Then home-made mayo with garlic (EVOO, Egg yolks, vinegar salt garlic)
Baby waxy potatoes skin on halved

Better make a big bowl and get in early because it will disappear.

Re: Drying Chilli for powder

We would sow a string through the stalks and hang them as a chain under the eaves over summer.

Try this

I would mix the meat more to get the proteins worked up and make it more like a sausage less crumbly
also add some white pepper,allspice and sumac if you have it.

Re: Make your own charcoal

I live in the bush,smokes not a problem. Part of the problem is if I run out I dont have a shop just down the road to get some more,I just look at tonnes of free wood that I cant use. It would need to be fired by more free wood to make it worth while http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Charcoal I try and ge...

Re: New Stainless steel Pizza Oven

I tossing up between a Komado or a WFO WFO is the preferred option but weight is an issue as I want it on the balcony. I was wondering if you could hack this oven to be a lighter weight substitute. Looking at it It would require thermal mass inside the dome to retain heat. A fairly well insulated do...

Re: New Stainless steel Pizza Oven

Hi it looks great I had a look at one up close in Bunnings. Do they hold heat for a long time to be able to do a slow cook or is it more fire it up cook a few things and it cools down. The chimney would probably lose heat fairly quickly if you closed it up for an overnight slow cook? Does the door g...
