Camping up north

Hey guys, I'm heading north on Wednesday for a couple of nights and was looking for cheap camping spots. I don't have any set plans as I haven't been on the water in my kayak in 8 months or so ( house buying & wedding) so i don't fancy paddling any great marathons . I was thinking of around the ...

Re: Liquid smoke + baboon

A quick update. .. the bacon came out very tasteless and unappealing so it's going in the cold smoker today. There was a very distinct smell from the liquid smoke but that was about it. I've had some amazing successes and some colossal failures while experimenting making bacon and this one is border...

Re: Liquid smoke + baboon

Ha ha I'm told baboon is very tasty.
The liquid smoke I got is very pungent so I think It's going to be very easy to over do it
I normally cold smoke my bacon for 15 hrs but I'm hoping by using the liquid I can cut that down to just a couple of hrs and still get a similar result

Liquid smoke + baboon

Not fishy related but I thought I'd ask anyway. I make my own bacon from pork bellies and I just recently got my mits on some liquid smoke. My plan was to add it to the cure so the flavor went right through the meat but I'm really unsure how much to add. Some websites say to brush it on liberally an...

Re: Hungover boredom

2 good points, I was thinking of using some foam on the lid under the rod tips for just that reason and have a small semi loose bungy cord to stop them bouncing to much.
Your second point sounds like personal experience[WINKING FACE]

Hungover boredom

After a few to many bourbons last night I decided to spend the day doing some minor diy. It was always a source of frustration for me that due to only having a single cab ute I needed more secure storage for my gear.

Re: Mangawhai area for a kayak fish

Straight out from head rock over the sand had been doing all right.
Anywhere along the coast towards mcgregors is alright to. When are you looking at fishing there as the boat traffic in the weekends is enough to drive you to drink. ?
