Tips for smoking meats

Smoking meat started out as a food preservation measure. It was popular before electricity when the main way to stretch the safety window for meat was to cook it or salt it. Smoking worked better than both, because salted meat often had to be rinsed to get rid of excess salt, and smoking made the meat last longer than actual cooking.

Of course, smoking is a form of partial cooking. You can eat smoked meat as is or re-cook it some other way. It takes several hours to do it right, and the trick is to smoke your meat over embers …

Why We Stand by Qld Vintage Ironbark

Ironbark is the common name that has been given to a number of species in the Eucalyptus group. These trees generally have a dark, deeply furrowed bark. Rather than being shed annually as many other species of Eucalyptus do, the dead bark actually accumulates on the tree forming fissures. After drying out this dead bark becomes impregnated with KINO, which is a dark red tree sap that has been exuded by the tree. This bark becomes resistant to fire and heat and will protect the living tissues within the trunk of the tree – and its branches – from a …

The Best Fruitwood for Smoking Different Meats

Smoking meat isn’t just about hanging it over a flaming barbecue. It’s a lot more intricate and takes a far longer period. To smoke meat, you drape it in a smoking chamber for anything from a few hours to half a day, usually half as long as you plan to cook it.

There are two kinds of smoking. Cold smoking uses temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees while hot smoking uses 70 to 80 degrees and produces meat that is ready to eat. Cold smokes last a few hours since they still contain some moisture, while hot smokes can stay fresh …
