    concentration of brining solutions

    hi guys long time no post for me! I have wondered for quite a while why the brining process has never been quantified properly. Frequently, the measurements are bases on cups (of a given salt: table, kosher etc) per gallon) plus a conversion factor per salt type, perhaps we should consider...

    Wild vs Farm raised salmon

    Colour is the other difference, wild salmon get it naturally from krill and such, farmed salmon have their colour adjusted by adding carotenoids to their feed, you'll find salmon labelled as organic, farmed salmon that is really pale because they don't add the carotenoids. Farmed salmon tend to...

    Call me stupid or am I smoking spare ribs?

    Hey Josh I was having trouble finding ribs with decent coverage over here (UK). The butcher told me that generally ribs are byproduct of makin bacon, and most bacon makers will cut as close to the bones to maximize yield. So I bought a pork belly slab and cut my own with the coverage I wanted...

    Mahogany wood?

    How about this ! I guess it is OK, my gut feeling would be "NO" but these guys have been doing it for years. ... I wonder how much of that mahogany banister I ripped out last Saturday is salvageable ? It's more than 100 years old and painted ... better not mess with it. Or my wine cabinet ...

    how long will rub keep?

    I like to use whole spices (cumin, black pepper, chilis, coriander, mustard seeds, clove, allspice ...) where possible and toast them before grinding. The flavour is really bright. The extra gets saved in a metal can and used for cooking.

    Reheating 4 Pork Butts

    Hi Rodney Get some of those disposable aluminum trays they sell in the supermarket for roasting turkey, if you can find ones with lids it's even better. To reheat sprinkle some apple juice and rub over the top cover and stick in a 300*F oven for a while.

    Pernil on the WSM?

    Hi Adam I tried this with a small, rolled pork shoulder from the supermarket. I made stabs in the meat and used a spare pastry bag to squeeze in a paste of garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. I didn't measure the internal temperature. Very tasty.
