We have joined with English Lakes Hotels and are teaching people to smoke their own food at

The Wild Boar, near Windermere.

The two-day package includes two nights accommodation and a one day course. Similar to the Smoky Jo's one day course you will learn to smoke many different foods on may different smokers.  A little theory, some practical work and lots of eating is a good summary! Our First Away Course

The Wild Boar Inn has a purpose built smokehouse that we use.  Of course they also have a wonderful warm and welcoming restaurant, so instead of tasters at the end of the course all the delicious smoked food will be served as an evening meal in the restaurant - we will be there too to answer any questions... and perhaps join the eating!

Smoky Jo gift vouchers may be used.
