Bloody hell, that all looks so good.

I think the crackling would end me, but that wouldn't stop me devouring it all.

I took a picture of the final sandwich but it's on my real camera so I haven't posted it yet. But I will!

Sadly I burned the candied bacon again [1], so I had to descope my plans for the Pig Triple Threat Sandwich (pulled pork, candied bacon, crackling) down to a Pig Double Trouble. Next time! The crunchy texture of the crackling worked really well with the soft pulled pork though.

[1] My hit rate for candied bacon is 33%. I keep forgetting it's in the oven while I rush around doing other things. I should just make it ahead of time and warm it slightly for serving.

Pop quiz! How much fat should I leave on the cracking when frying it?

When I took the skin off the pork shoulder, it had a pretty large amount of fat still attached, especially at one end. First pic below is the slab, just after it came out of the water bath, with a few slices I took off just before frying. The fat here had a great texture, very creamy (this was after about six hours of cooking at 74 deg C). I need to make some belly pork in the sous vide.

I fried some slices with all the fat still attached, and some slices where I took it down to just the skin. You can see both in the second pic. The latter were crispier, and in the former the fat didn't look that appetising IMO. But it did taste pretty good.

I like my pork scratchings as fatty as possible but not sure if I'm in the minority there.

Same. I'm in it for the fat, not the skin.

Good work! Especially ending on empty pint glass, nothing to do with the food after the full plate. Suggests you downed the pint and forgot the steak :)

Beef brisket and pork shoulder in the smoker, chicken wings standing by in the kitchen.

Last time using it at this shitty rented house, next weekend should be the first at a good house that we own.

You know, I think I've picked a hobby that fits.

There's a photo of pulled pork, but the forum tells me it's invalid. Maybe that's for the best.

A highly accurate description of the following half hour.

I just put the leftovers in the fridge. The brisket tip, mostly consisting of smoke ring and bark, was still lovely and moist.

Bless you, hipster charcoal, for making me seem suddenly competent.

Short ribs were glorious, lamb needed to be on longer. We may have overcatered.

My thoughts exactly!

I've just had a Smurf, but Beex won't let me upload the picture.

Bacon revelation!

Usually I grill bacon but the element on our grill packed up months ago and I've still not got around to fixing it. So on the odd occasion I could be bothered I'd been frying it instead. Anyway fed up with that I tried putting it on the grill pan on some baking paper and putting the whole thing in the oven on about 210. Seven minutes, turn it over for another four or five and it's the best bacon I've made. All the fatty bits perfectly crisped but the meaty bits still moist and meaty and nothing to clean up!

I'm fairly sure that that is, in no way, shape or form, legal.

Lamb barbacoa, with smoked peppers and corn, guacamole, and sour cream.

Recipe: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2013 ... ecipe.html The lamb gets rubbed then smoked for three hours (with corn and peppers added because why not?) Meanwhile, dried chillis are toasted then simmered in chicken stock, and onions and garlic and also fried and simmered in more stock. Both of those get blended, then poured over the lamb, which goes into a low oven for another three hours (but mine took six...) Finally, the lamb is shredded and the source poured over, although I chilled it overnight first and separated the fat out from the rest of the sauce.

All credit to MrsCurio for making us barbacoa at their place recently and giving me the idea, as well as showing me the existence of these rather nifty fajita boat things.
