The day starts with coffee at 09.45 and the course starts at 10.00 am with a little theory and history of smoking. You are then straight into the practical hands on business of smoking food. You will be preparing and smoking over fourteen different types of food from chicken to nuts and scallops to garlic You will also be firing up six or seven different smokers – anything from a cardboard box to a filing cabinet!
You will be smoking your own lunch which will be served with an assortment of salads and a smoked cheese board.
At the end of the afternoon we all sit down with a glass of bubbly and taste the food we have smoked. You will then be given a Smoky Jo goodie bag of smoked food to take home along with comprehensive notes. (At the Wild Boar the tastings are replaced with an evening meal.)

Please bring warm waterproof clothing as we will be working outdoors for parts of the course and as you will be around smoke we suggest that you wear old cloths as you may well smell rather smoky at the end of the day!
