The Smoker

Sean learnt the process of smoking during the time he worked for a cheese maker in the UK. and that  is where he realized his  passion for the art.  We are constantly experimenting with cures, marinades, seasoning, wood’s and smoking times to produce the unique flavours of our smoked foods. Our smokehouse was built using the traditional method. After building our smoke chamber, we spent many hours testing it and experimenting with ways of using it, as each smoke chamber is unique and has its own nuances of heat. Only once the smoke chamber is mastered and understood can you then begin to work together with the smoke chamber. When you buy one of our products, you are not only buying something we have mastered but you are also receiving the love we put into building the smoke chamber and the hours spent refining the process. If food is prepared with love, it is able to give love back to the person eating it. In a nut shell – there is a lot more to making food that looks, smells and tastes great and the intent with which it is prepared is the key to perfection.

The Man Who Smokes Salt

He takes us into his processing room where he shows us how he scoops carefully measured salt into the custom-designed wire-mesh wooden trays. The trays are then taken into the smoker and fitted into racks.
