Bresaola & Coppa

Have just placed a couple of items in the chamber http://i776.photobucket.com/albums/yy47/tazplass/BampC_zps499b44f7.jpg Bresaola on the left and Coppa on the right. Bresaola is done with the Charcuterie recipe. Coppa is a mix of what Jason Molinari does and Charcuterie. It's a whole muscle in a Bee...

Looks to me like it already has been used :smile:


On another note, we also have rellies in Christchurch so we know/have heard all about it.
Hope every one is safe and well down there.

I have the smaller unit and it's currently smoking some Tas salmon (nearly midnight here in Perth but the temp is down to 20 C so that why it's happening late) Works well and the best thing it works with i find are pellets. Let us know how you get...

I regularly make 'Canadian' bacon. I use a Hark electric smoker and have it running at about 110 C. No probs with fat rendering and all works ok. I pull it out when the internal temp is 65 or 67C Tastes great as well. BTW, most of my recipes are based on the Charcuterie book (Ruhlman & Polcyn) with ...

Hi guys The humidifier is adjustable but i have it wound up on full and the sensor/controller does all the work. Brings it on as required. I believe the wood is a hard wood. Not sure but could be Jarra or similar. Humidity is not a problem. Either way, the Penfolds Grange in the wooden boxes at the ...
