Hey, Merkinz. Good to have you back.
A while ago you were talking about moving to Wellington. If you did, go and see Preston's in Hopper Street; specifically a gentleman called Fred. He's the guy I go to for obscurities - he did me a saddle of lamb a while back.
HAH! yes! I remember, and yes I did just move back to Wellington! Great to be 'home' (eastbourne).
I've been getting alot of belly from prestons lately for bacon and I just got an 'eye of round' for bresaola. I love that place.
I'm still keen to know more about this 'Scotch Roast' thought. They come up on special occasionally and if they actually happen to be a specific cut I can use for charcuterie it might save me alot of money as every time I've been to a butcher in the past reqesting a 'custom cut' it has cost me an arm and a leg.
I just got a wine fridge for curing and it holds a nice steady humidity (70 - 75%). I'm really excited about the things I can cure.
