Butchers Knot Tutorial

Ben recently purchased 1/2 a pig from our very own sponsors Westlands Rare Breeds (Paul Robbinson & family). He was fortunate enough to spend a morning with the butcher as he carved up the carcas. Ben filmed the butchers knot, which is an art in itself. If you ever wondered how to do this and make your own pork/chicken/lamb rolls - watch carefully, its not as hard as you think.

Homemade Pastrami

Location: Home

Pastrami is a prepared meat that I have always really enjoyed and fell in love with at Katz Deli in NY, succulent, served with pickles and mustard on rye bread. I had a few pieces of brisket point left over from a competition. This does take a few days to prepare, but is well worth the effort.

Grillstock 2012 - A look back

John Finch and his crew put on a fantastic event, which was won by our very good friends "Bunch of Swines". BBQ Fanatics (ably supported by Kev "Hot Wing" Brown) finished a very respectable 4th overall and placed 3rd in Pork & Ribs categories. A great video to get a taste for the Bristol (and soon to be London ) based music, blues and BBQ festival.
