Well our legendary smoker has had a really busy year. We estimate we have put over 300 shoulders of pork through our wonderful machine this year. “Sam the Smoker” has had a marathon run over the summer but we couldn’t cook the food we love to make without him. Sam enables us to bath our shoulders of pork in a rich variety of smoke from different woods, but mainly oak from Kent. So of course “Sam the Smoker” needed some serious end of year maintenance especially after a very hot smoke when one of the original lid hinge welds split. So out with the angle grinder and welder. Better to fix than have to chuck out and buy another.
