HOP SMOKE FIRE

Jason Wood, a name that lends itself to barbecue and food smoking.  See what I'm cooking, eating and drinking.

I'm a firm believer that mistakes are for making as long as you learn from them.  Science and innovation has not got us to where we are today by people getting it right all the time.

 

What you will see on this site are my failures in proportion to my successes as what you learn from your mistakes is more important than what you learn from your successes.

I have just finished an MBA with the University of Northampton, where I conducted research on sustainability in barbecue.  As a result I have a Barbecology section on the site for the more academic side of the barbecue world that I discovered during my studies.

I was given the Hellfire Halo cast iron grill set for Christmas and its shameful that it's taken me till Easter to use it.  Well now I have, and it doesn't disappoint.  The main reason I wanted one was to have a larger cast iron surface area to cook burgers and other s...
