    Just went to a local boot sale (sort of flea market for our mates over the pond), and there was a 'mobile butcher' selling his wares.

    The UK folks will be familiar with this, a specially constructed refrigerated truck which, when opened down the side, looks like the front of a butchers store, with the butcher advertising his wares over a PA system.

    Any way, I got there pretty late and most people were packing up, but I got three packs of pork sausages (8 in a pack), for £1 the lot, 5 thick cut sirloin steaks for £10, but to cap it all I got this lot


    three pork leg joints, which when trimmed an skinned weighed just over 10kg, the whole lot for £15.

    Needless to say, I'm boiling up a batch of brine to cure these beauties in.

    Needless to say, I'll pop back to that market again

    Cheers Brian, well its ben 10 days so, as these three joints only average about 3kg each and were all injected with brine as well, I think they may be ready to come out.

    What do you lot think?

    And this is what one of them looks like after 24hrs cold smoked over hickory and oak, 2 hours in the oven, now sliced ready for sarnies and salads etc
