10 Ingenious Ways You Can Do With Smoked Old Fashioned | smoked old fashioned

Smoked Old Fashioned (or English) Roast is probably one of my favourite styles of cookery. There are a huge variety of roasts to choose from and it is fun experimenting with new ones. If you have ever tried a smoked turkey you will know what I mean when I say that the taste is second to none! A good smokey roast should have a thick, dense consistency. Rich, smoky flavour is the sign of a good smokey, or browned, roast – and these types of roasts are usually best when they are well chilled.

The word 'browned' is another way of saying 'smoked'. A good browned roast has all of the natural taste of the meat but has been cooked through, so the fat has not accumulated on the surface. The colour of the fat is normally white but can vary quite a lot depending on the roast and other factors. Good quality beef or turkey will have the natural juices trapped inside, which is why many people prefer the latter, rather than the former. There are some roasts that have more of a pink colour, known as a 'volcanic' roast, which is very rich in flavour.

So, what is the best way to cook a turkey? Well, there are a number of different methods, but all will involve smoking the meat. This process of smoking meat preserves it for a long time, giving it a rich flavour that is not possible with less healthy methods such as roasting or grilling. Turkey is an excellent example of this, as it takes years for even the best cuts to become smokeable, and this is why many people choose to buy their turkeys instead of hunting.

When smoke is used to preserve meat it can be done in two ways – either a traditional wood fire or a modern electric smoker. Both of these methods work very well, but you need to be very aware that smoking itself is not necessarily the best way to make a turkey – if you want the most tenderloin, for instance, you need to smoke it using a smoker. Smokers can also work exceptionally well if you want to make ham, steak or bacon – just remember to leave out the fat!

Some of the best smoked dishes include those made from venison, game and liver. There is nothing quite like the taste of rabbit, veal or turkey cooked with a nice brown sauce, seasoned with bay leaves and herbs. It is this old world charm which makes smoked food so appealing – it really does feel like the animals are in the kitchen making it, and it is the authenticity that many people seek. Of course, this is not the only benefit, as the health benefits of eating well preserved meats are also well worth a try. Many studies have shown that the fat content of turkey is much lower than beef which makes it a far better choice for lovers of deliciously juicy meat.
