Smoking using alder wood

Smoking at the Bornholmian smokehouses is done by hanging herrings or other smoked products on grills or spits over alder wood. The smoked products are placed in a chimney, which is why you will see the large open chimneys at most smokehouses. The main rule of smoking is that there must only be embers, which is why the smoking is constantly monitored.

Many of the smokehouses on Bornholm open around Easter and are open until after autumn half-term.
