Smoking Food in a Hollow Tree

The Foragers are a team of hunter-gatherers who run a wild food pub in St Albans. They regularly head into the woods on foraging adventures. In this video the Foragers turned a hollow tree into a smoker, capable of hot smoking a pheasant and cold smoking cheese at the same time. A new way of cooking out in the wild.

An interesting example of a cooking technique which would have been used in early human history and relevent to bushcraft and survival today. A minor downside will be the loss of habitat to deadwood wildlife.

It's fallen trees like this, that are important for eco-systems. Providing both food like insects and habitat. Not mentioning the fungi, mosses and many other reasons there are for allowing fallen trees in the woodland, to just do their thing..

To all you whinging armchair conservationists, you don't have a fucking clue. 90% of the log was undamaged by the fire. Within a few months woodland life in the log would have returned to normal. Charcoal and wood ash provide nutrients for the soil. Educate yourself before you spout rubbish.

In "olden times" they knew nothing about nutrition. They smoked food to preserve it.
