How to Use a Charcoal Chimney
You will need to have a charcoal chimney handy if you are going to use the charcoal on your meat. It is located usually on top of the main grill or on the side of the BBQ where you have space to place the food. All you have to do is use a chimney lighter to light the charcoal and once it’s hot enough, you’ll be able to smoke your meat. You will want to use around 80-95% charcoal to satisfy your needs. I highly suggest adding a chimney lighter if you are looking to go ultra-smoky.
Aside from chimney lighter, you will also need a pot to smoke the meat. The ideal amount of charcoal for your cooking is called the “body quantity”. For 2 pieces of fish, you will use 1/2 to 1 cup of charcoal. Make sure that the charcoal is packedtightly in the chute of your grilling, so there is no give or break in case you make a mistake. A chimney lighter is basically a battery operated lighter. They last around 6 to 12 months without oil and the electric seem to be getting better and better.
Once you’ve packaged all the ingredients, you can give the barbecue or pork shoulder its unique flavor with a little rub on the grill. First, you’ll want to take the pork shoulder(and any aluminum pans that you will be using) out from the refrigerator, and rinse it with some cold water to get the ice particles that might have turned the grainy ice cubes to a white. (Some had to whiz it through with a potato peeler, but the simple solution is to put the whole pan in the freezer for a couple of hours until the meat turns white after drying.)
While the pork shoulder is still in the refrigerator, get some “rib tips” from the deli to spice it up. Add some chili powder, cumin, and brown sugar to a cup and mix them together. Then add enough olive oil to coat the meat. Of course, you can make this as spicy as you want. Add cayenne and you can have a customized BBQ BBQ pork shoulder!
Slice up your onions and the garlic and place in a bowl. Then add the rest of your favorite BBQ rub on them, such as the Spicy Garlic BBQ Rub recipe. This rub will make your skin enjoy the garlic, spices and pepper…Every time I eat!
Now, why would you want to use a BBQ rub instead of a marinade? Well, for one thing, they are much easier to apply. They don’t have to be applied with a spoon – You can just slather it on like you would a marinade. And because it has the flavors you want, it will actually taste better when it comes time to eat. It’s all about the spices!
Just don’t forget to save room for dessert! We promised bay and it’s still a great idea to keep some room. Maybe you want to make something other than sauce. Or you could throw some fruit on top. Whatever you decide, just don’t over do it and please only use half the sauce and half the fruit. When you’re ready to kick it up a notch you can learn to use a commercial pellet smoker.

The Lazy Leaf in BBQ
The lazy leaf has been around for a very long time. Like corn, the lazy leaf can be grown very rapidly and is a super-food. The lazy leaf grows in the shadow of oak and hazel trees. The sap is extracted by beating the leaves together and is what we most Often called “liquid smoke“. The tree measures about four feet tall and has a life span of up to 70 years. The Beech species – the only trees with true lazy leaf genes – die in 12 to 15 years. The oak and hazel tree varieties have a life span of 20 years or more and are replaced by them.
Smoke from the lazily hanging toad is less than Syros’ known natural smoke. Like Castelo Bran, the leaves are where the true smoke is found in honey and olive oil. The olive oil that we use comes from the fruits of the olive tree. indeed, olive oil comes from the fruit of the olive tree . However, the olive tree is a pruned tree, while the hortatory olive tree grows vines, then produces fruits much like those of the garden market. The Only difference is that the garden olive trees are self-pollinating. The olive tree, however, bears fruit continuously for the harvest into the winter. As the fruit matures, it eventually becomes bitter. The Extraction of the fruit is then mixed with exact same quantities of other ingredients to give the final product. This mixed product is then packed into containers and transported to the smoke house.
The reason I believe that the Hocharollas are better is that they are nurtured, direct from the source, compared to the Extraction process. direct means that the fruits grow at their own rate and are not affected by pests. It also ensures that the quality is top notch. When you refer to the two largest buyers of Hocharollas, you will notice that they are the companies that made the finest possible – matches, in fact.
The other two stages of the process are: pruning and Handling.
pruning: The pruning of the olive tree is vital. Proper pruning reduces the amount of foliage and cuts down on the branch heath. It also provides a forest canopy to protect the tree and it’s often used for windbreaks. For real aficionados, the pruning stage can be a painful one.
Handling: The handling of the products is one of the most important steps in the process. Again, as an aficionado of Mediterranean products, you will know that tacky cartons and sealed bags are a bad idea. The handling techniques of the time are a distant memory to most. You will want to see the evidence of the time period, not just the shiny paper documents and old oil bottles. You may also want to go to wine tasting events or cooking classes, which can go a long way in honing your knife throwing skills.
Once you are ready to sink your teeth into some bone-chilling gnocchi, take heart! The Passata region of Italy is waiting to reveal its locks of gold.

A tough job, trying to juggle the animal with the smoke, but there is no way to avoid the fact that when meat sits on a smoke filled barbecue for too long it becomes tender and falls apart. Thus, the old saying goes “meat is like a garden founded on cabbage”.
