Little correction on the pictures I showed earlier. The chopped meat in the picture is exactly that: meat cut by hand (well, actually by knife) into very small pieces. The pic was taken before I started working it. I added the spices to it, mixed it thoroughly for the myosin development and then let...

This is the type of meat I use https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-rEmJHGfjK14/Ume6CyT9c4I/AAAAAAAAA4U/x-23boMalo8/s640/P1010754.jpg https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-4WslBXU7eAM/Ume6PvHaF4I/AAAAAAAAA4k/xwPm6SvUIWQ/s640/P1010755.jpg Then cut finely, a bit coarser these days than on the picture as he...

I am either a bit ahead of the troupe or a bit behind.... I have just been making some smoked sausages and cold smoked bacon. I will try to find some pictures of me mincing, cutting etc as the process is more or less the same (except obviously for the cure) and will limit my comments to fresh sausag...

Just a couple of questions about the ingredients. Availability here is a problem in general and ordering online not really an option as the mail is not very reliable. Can I use normal sugar instead of dextrose? I know I will probably have to adjust the amounts, but I figure it shouldn't be a problem...

@CW: Why not allow people to sign up for this project once it is on the way? This could be done in a separate thread and may give us some more participants while still preventing unwanted posts in this thread? I figure that once we get going a number of people will want to join as to me it is not ju...

Sounds good CW! At the moment I have a slab of belly pork lying in a Chines style cure which goes into the smoker in a couple of days (for cold smoking as I happen to like cold smoked streaky bacon better than hot smoked. I will be smoking at night time (below 15 oC) and can't really delay this as w...

I would love to try my hands on some traditional Dutch rookworst(grove gelderse rookworst preferably) from scratch(if only I could find the right spice mixture). To be eaten with homemade sauerkraut.....

Just a quick aside: for me personally project b2 didn't go too fast, but because of my location the part were it became necessary to use a starter culture was just not feasible. No starter cultures available and not really the right climate. One day I will get to it though and re-read all the info a...

Good idea, but I would leave it open for everyone to pitch in with comments, so people that haven't joined yet, can come in later and ask questions etc. And people are gaining experience all the time and slowly move out of the beginners category, but may have some useful insights (and can still reme...

Thanks Duk :-) Yeah, my name comes from my favourite condiment, but it's a mild sambal in my books (just joking, but speaking the truth as well) And can someone tell CW that we don't really need high boots at 45 degrees, centigrade that is! I will start wearing them at 45 fahrenheit, but we only rea...

Somehow the whole lot I wrote disappeared in cyberspace. Ah, the joys of internet in Africa. Nice pictures all! My picture was taken on the Zambezi river, the border river between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Normally we are fishing for tigerfish. They give you a real good fight. Here we were trying to catc...
