Cold smoking for dummies

20160417_111633

Hi!

During the past few years I’ve been experimenting with different kinds of smoking and grilling – I was using mangal (a mediterranean version of the charcoal grill), grill, gas grill, water smoker, brazilian style parija… One thing I didn’t get into was the cold smoking. But now, when I did – wow, I love that! So today I will be showing my new UFO Cold Smoke generator and making a homemade cold smoked salmon and cold smoked cheese.

G’day, folks!

Sooo…. I finally got my smoker! Before moving to Sydney I had a Weber Smokey Mountain cooker, which I unfortunately had to leave behind. For the last 6 months I’ve been doing market research trying to find a better smoker, but eventually I am back with my trusty “R2D2”, as my two little “Star Wars” fans named it.

Smoked baby back ribs with sweet & hot pineapple BBQ glaze

It’s been quite long since I posted something. Main reason is we’re having a bit of a situation in Israel these days – some “unusual garbage” is falling on our heads, courtesy of our “cousins” from Gaza… But here I am, practically smoking under fire :)!

Last weekend I succeeded to lay my hands on those nice baby back ribs… Unfortunately, pork is not the most popular meat in Israel, and even where it is, baby backs are quite rare to find. But here I am, with 4 decent beautiful racks, which I was dying to get on my smoker.
