Appel wood and Nitrite salt ready for the smoker

Now I´m feeling really prepared for the smoker !

The nice appel wood I got from my neighbor is cut up in small wood pieces in pefect size for my smoker. Fruit trees are perfect to use when smoking. Giving a nice flavor to the meat.
Also got nitrite salt to last me for many years to come. Nitrite salt killing any bacteria that might grow in the meat and it also giving a beautiful redish color to the meat.

I have fresh wild boar meat and I have a lot of alder wood chips just waiting to be used.
I have a nice plan for next weekend and it won´t be pig this time though.

The plan is smoked lamb shoulder. We´ll see.

To be continued....
