        • Well, back to the "normal" routine. A week out of the normal ebb and flow can be somewhat dis-orienting. We got back late Friday night and I still feel "out of it". I guess getting back in to the groove will take some time....

          So it's back to the going to bed mid-afternoon, staying up all night, collecting eggs and feeding/watering birds, exercising on schedule, and eating better than I did last week...... It is fortunate that most of the cookies, cakes, and the like are somewhere other than my house. There is some stuff in the freezer, but out of sight is out of mind. I have a funny feeling January will be a Whole30 month.....

          I will admit, I enjoyed the time off from work, but I did miss my time here, the banter, the humor... I am fortunate to have met some great people here..... Thanks to all of you for reading, commenting, and sharing.

                    no, and everything I have read doesn't recomend it's use because of the resin in the wood can cause off flavors (like turpentine) in the meat. If your a big fan of turpentine, feel free m'lad! It can be used in small amounts in a fireplace, but it can cause a build up of deposits in the flue that can cause chimney fires.... Pine is great for camp fires though....

                        Ahh, yes, I guess that could be construed as wisdom... but mostly what I put out male bovine excreta...

                            I was, I had a pine tree in my backyard hacked down and enquired what it was like to smoke with, for some reason I decided not to bother after that reply....

                            Goggled manuka, what's the honey like? Never tried moki either, they buggers don't swim this north.... but smoked fish, oh yes....

                              • well we actually get manuka which i think is leptospermum scoparium and kanuka which is kunzea eriocides. both latin names are prob spelt wrong. very similar looking tree much confused by people. there are salient differences. manuka is a scrub regrowth tree which will last maybe 70 years whereas kanuka is more of a forest species which will last 300-400 yrs and have things like epiphytes. it gets much taller and wider. manuka honey is also often kanuka honey. very nice. i have had all sorts of different types. i think legally you can call a honey species X if you have 60% pollen in there. so the variance in sublte flavours can be quite wide. it's expensive too. moki are almost my fave fish. we have snapper and john dory too which i really like and rig which is a type of small shark. absolute sacrilege but i am not so hot on blue cod. and with smoking fish. i think too it depends on the fish as to how it smokes.

                                when me and the dog were out deer stalking at the weekend we found a huge pat of bovine excreta. potentially even actual real genuine live bull excreta as there was a bull not that far away acting natural. the dog proceeds to face plant in it and start eating LOL dogs cant digest veges so they love second hand veg!
