Calling all foodies!link through to Smoky Jo's food smoking blog or smokeblog

Smoky Jo's run days and weekends that are great fun, informative and very tasty! Perfect for anyone who loves smoked food and enjoys creating delicious meals at home.

Join us and enjoy a one-day or weekend course at Smoky Jo's Cookery School in Cumbria where you can learn the art of hot and cold smoking food at home.  (If you're not sure, but you know some one who would love a course, gift vouchers are available!)

Whether you are interested in fine food, would like to learn how to smoke your own food, or maybe you catch your own fish, rear your own meat or shoot your own game and you would like to be able to smoke it; or if you just love eating smoked food - then Smoky Jo's is the place for you.

Meals and refreshments will be provided each day along with course notes, and you can take away the fruits of your labour to entertain your friends with the foods you have smoked!

Courses at Smoky Jo's also provide the added enjoyment of a restful holiday break in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside.  Why don't you make the most of your break by staying on a few extra days and enjoy exploring the Lake District?

Buy a course for a friend or family member!  What a great Christmas or birthday present for the person who loves smoked food...

WHY SMOKY JO'S??

And why not Smokey Joe's?  Or Smoky Joe's?  Or even Smokey Jo's?!!

Well, we agonised over it.  Although the Jo bit was obviously fairly easy, what with one of us being called Jo...  But how to spell smok(e)y was a decision made after seeing both spellings all over the web then resorting to a good old fashioned dictionary... 


 

 

 

 

 

 

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for a fabulous weekend at the ‘Castle Court Smokehouse’.  I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the course.  I cannot help but think that the world of commercial smoking has lost out, but that the knowledge and experience that you are willing to share on your courses is a delight and privilege to all who attend." - Andrew, April 2014
