In advance of me getting my finger out and putting up some proper information on making bacon, here's a quick video showing our smoker setup.

Before we got the Bradley smoke generator we used a gas-ring to heat a metal plate, on which we would pile sawdust. It produced pretty good smoke, but also too much heat. Now the generator sits in the greenhouse, the smoke goes through the cardboard box and up the tumble-drier hose, outside and into the smoker. By that time it's pretty much at the ambient temperature, which at this time of year means damned cold.

Would love to hear you speak on the videos. Always enjoy reading your posts about what's happening.

You might but I wouldn't! Don't you always sound odd when you hear yourself on a recorded message? I don't think I have a very broad Scottish accent until I hear myself on video. It's just like how much better looking I am from the inside looking out!!

When I watched this video for the first time I thought exactly the same - it would be improved 100% by some commentary! Will do better next time, promise. :-)
