Honestly, I do not know what to say - besides of the obvious: Thank you. We can call it many ways: tragedy, accident, and so on. We can (and do) have our own feelings about this. And even though the country still remains intact, the government and army goes on while (at least some) Poles mourn, it a...

Good luck then :)

By the way - any chance you could tell us the weight of JDs oak chips? I can see in the product description that a 5$ bag contains 210 cubic inches (which would be 3,4l/3441cm3 volume), but there's no information about the actual weight.

Every single one will be good; considering this is your first attempt, I would use hickory leaving apple and cherry for your future attempts. That's because - in my sole opinion - they will give you better results (better smell and taste) and as such I would keep them ie. for a ham. And the best one...

Most of them should be dried dried.
We tend to use fresh garlic and - well - freshly ground dried pepper ;)

golaszm, thanks for the picture and information. How does your smoker work? Do you have any problems with it? I want to do something similar to this to start. Meaning the stove, flex pipe and wooden box? Works fine for me - easy to set up, easy to hide - only the stove stays outside all the time. E...

Ehh... Moving back to the point: I know galvenized metal is not safe around food. Im assuming aluminum is. I have been warned that aluminium is NOT safe. Honestly - I have no idea what exactly could happen when an aluminium flex duct is used, though one of the forum members has warned me not to use ...

Is it possible to keep the smoke temperature low enough (for cold smoking) in the box by using a hot plate with a cast iron skillet with wood chips in it directly underneath the sausage? Assume the outside air temperature is about 45 degrees farenheit. Thanks. It depends on the power of your hot pl...
