Sumac Chicken Skewers by Dreaming Of The Good Life

It has been a couple of weeks since I cooked these beauties but they are certainly worth a mention.  It’s not my creation so I will not take any credit.  This recipe was taken from the Dreaming Of The Good Life blog.  If you like tasty food I would definitely suggest that you go have a look at all of the recipes.

If you like a kebab I seriously suggest you make this your go to recipe for a last minute meal on the BBQ.  It took me no time at all and it was packed full of flavour.  Just be careful not to overcook it or you’ll regret it.

Here are some more pictures from that cook.

The Benefits of Good Charcoal: Sweet Green Chilli Pork Shoulders

What charcoal do you use when you barbecue?  Whatever you can find in the supermarket?  Maybe you’re more bbq savvy and use brands like Big K instead.  Have you ever thought about looking for a local producer of charcoal? No?  I think you should give it a go and here’s why. Continue reading The Benefits of Good Charcoal: Sweet Green Chilli Pork Shoulders

The Reigniting of my Passion for Barbecue and Smoking.

I haven’t posted anything to my blog for a very long time.  My domain had expired and my drive to write anything had disappeared.  I have loved barbecue food for a long time but my ignorance meant that I didn’t make the most of what I had.  Although I have a large Weber Mastertouch at my disposal – I mistakenly believed that they could only be used for grilling.  I think most of the UK public incorrectly hold a similar view.  What I really wanted to do was smoke some meat but I couldn’t afford to buy a dedicated smoker.  After watching videos of Frankin BBQ on Youtube I was sure that an offset smoker was the way to go.  I even tried to build my own filing cabinet smoker but it just didn’t work (despite the popularity of the post) and I gave up.  The dream of smoking the all mighty brisket at home was all but guaranteed never to happen.   Continue reading The Reigniting of my Passion for Barbecue and Smoking.

New Direction (Sort Of)

Lately, I have struggled to write new content for the blog.  I have been busy.  Life gets in the way sometimes but I have also come to the realisation that I need to post more regular content in order for the blog to be in any way interesting.  Unfortunately, posting regular reviews of restaurants etc seems unachievable.  You should still expect to see reviews, personal posts and the occasional piece of news but the focus will change.  Mainly, I don’t have the budget to eat out regularly.  However, I do love to cook and try new things.

This isn’t breaking news.  I’m certain that many of you already know but I am still thrilled to share this news with you.  Anybody that has read my blog would know that Hang Fire Smokehouse are incredible.  They were voted ‘Best Street Food’ by the BBC, launched Wales’ first craft soda and obviously cook the most incredible Barbecue food – you should do anything they can to go and eat their food.  However, I realise that this is not always possible and so the announcement that they are releasing their very own cookbook is incredibly exciting.  Now you can cook their food at home!   Continue reading Hang Fire Smokehouse Announce Cookbook Deal!

Growing Your Own

When cooking – Nothing is better than using the freshest ingredients possible.  Most of us don’t have the luxury of homegrown meat, for that you will need to visit a good butcher or fishmonger, but we can grow our own fruit and vegetables.  Whether you grow just a small amount in your garden or upgrade to an allotment – for at least a few months of the year, you can enjoy fresh salad, potatoes and almost anything else you feel like growing.
