    You can learn a lot about smoking here, but, it looks like you could teach us about wine!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    thanks ,and for the Salami here it is( sorry no photos)

    it is a beef salami i made two type one smoke and one dry

    the meat is 80/20 from the neck 4 kg(+_8 pond)  and added 5%of lamb fat good mix gooooood  add ice water and add 1.7% o salt hand full of black pepper,hand full of crashed coriander seed, hand full crashed master seed ,hand full off powder milk ,one hand full off chili powder , at this stage i filled 1/2 off the batch

    in the casing poke them with a fork and smoke it  for 6 hours at 225' it was a bit smoke but good.

    the other 1/2 i add 2% off salt Pieter and 2% of quick dry powder i then filled in the casing and hang it in my wine cellar (it is cool and dray) for 3 months

    a bit dry but good next time less quick dry  .
