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.

My wife was away tonight, so I didn't think I'd be able to do dinner on the barbecue, what with the kids' dinner, bath, bedtime and lunch boxes etc.  Well, I was mistaken and testament to the abilities of the chimney starter and the gas starter on the Weber to get the...

I decided to take the opportunity to barbecue some vegetarian food.  A pepper, some cream cheese, red leicester, chives and seasoning.  Unfortunately the whole thing then fell on a very neatly-made bacon weave that had been carelessly left lying around, four of them in...
