A feast of smoked meats, and a rant.

If you are planning on a new healthy start to 2012 cutting the amount of salt, fat and calories……then look away now….

However if you feel you still want to get stuck into some serious meat then have a gander at this hearty selection of smoked meats I’ve been cooking recently.

I’ve been reading here and there about predictions for food trends for 2012….Peruvian anyone? (well maybe Smoked Guinea Pig…….. Wallace and Grommit our family guinea pigs watch out!).

After recent trends of molecular gastronomy, tiny little portions of tastes, why not do food properly and go big! Serve your family some good quality meat, a decent cheap cut, such as ribs, or some brisket or shoulder of pork, with some crusty home made bread, some simply cooked vegetables, and enjoy real food. Bear in mind all of these meats can be cooked on a BBQ as long as it has a lid, such as a kettle BBQ, these can be picked up very cheaply in the sales at the moment.

Here’s a selection of what has been on my smoker over the Festive Period. 

Hickory smoked bacon collar

Beef short ribs

Zaatar rubbed smoked turkey leg joint

All in all a mouth-watering range of meats, over the moon with my new Christmas present.

Have a great year.
