Right what's going on doggies welcome back to another video and welcome to a catch and cook mission all right a quick rundown on exactly how today is going to go well that's actually a lie because i've got no idea how today is going to go but.
What i want to do i want to make like a fish smoker it's something that we've never done on this channel before i've never done it before ever so i don't even know if it's going to work but i've challenged myself to come out here and make a fish smoker purely from materials that we find on.
This epic black sandy beach in indonesia in my bag here i have a knife a massive slab of beautiful fresh fish which we caught yesterday and um one lighter that is all we've got for the day so i want to challenge myself to see if we can make a fish smoker on this beach purely from the materials that we find.
All right i think i have found the fish smoking headquarters it's still pretty bloody windy but we've got a nice little lush green wall here we've got another little bit of a green wall here and it sort of comes into like a little bit of a valley so it's still bloody windy like it's like in here the wind is like sort of.
Turbulent but there is really nowhere else i can find on this beach that's out of the wind and what we need to do today we need to trap the smoke and this wind is just going to continue carrying the smoke away so it's gonna be a little bit of a mission but this place does look pretty sick it.
Just looks like nice wall here another wall here we've got a couple of banana leafs up there a little bit of a creek on the side it's looking good just this bloody wind man you've got to be kidding me dude the only time i want to come down here and make a bloody fish smoker and it is blowing its absolute tits off.
But you know what we are not going to let the wind beat us today we are going to push through we are going to fight through the wind put our brain to the test and see if we can make a fish smoker that actually works so this is it this is it this is where we're gonna make our base down there we'll probably put the fish.
Smoker and um let's do this i'm gonna start scavenging through all this rubbish fun bamboo find materials let's cook this beautiful bit of fish just using the smoke from a fire all right the time has come where we need to get ourselves a pair of work boots because.
I want to go right up in here but just before i just seen a syringe on the ground so we're going to find ourselves a little bit of foot protection pair of work boots it's not going to be hard around here there are shoes everywhere once again here we go look at this we've got a nike.
Slide on thing that is a bloody beautiful fit what's this this is gorgeous she's old what about this thing here's a flip-flop a plugger a thong what else do you guys call these bloody things i don't know we call them thongs or pluggers in australia here's another one of those slides.
That's going to be another perfect fit 3.2 seconds and i've got myself a pair of work boots all right now we can go full bush and we can really start finding some good materials here this is where i want to go i want to go up in here oh that's good all right this is gonna.
Take a bloody long time to go sift through all this material because i'm literally going to have to make this thing like a wind proof what i'm thinking right now is i'm thinking i'm going to make like a teepee so it's going to be like the bamboo like this we're going to make a nice little.
Fire at the bottom with smoke this coconut husk up up in here there's a whole lot of coconuts like look at this there's endless amounts of dried up beautiful crunchy coconuts i'm going to be using the husk off of this coconut like that stuff there that's going to be nice and smoky so i'm.
Just going to keep sieving through all this wood grab myself a heap of materials this is going to take a bloody long time so while i go through all this wood sieving i'll roll on the fishing clips from yesterday and you'll see why i've got bruises up in my arm here because i was on to the goliath fish yesterday.
It was an epic day fishing so i'll graze those clips on now i'm gonna go through here keep collecting maybe we'll do a couple of upgrades a couple of a couple of shoe upgrades if i can find a couple but yeah anyway i'll roll those scoops on now and i will see you guys back here.
When we get a fire going oh we've got a fish already doggies it's my second drop for the morning and we're on doesn't feel like a monster but it smashed it right on the bottom no idea what it is but it's a sick feeling oh man all right i just got the fish up from about 200 meters i'm absolutely.
Stuffed and it's the first fish of the day oh i'll show you this thing it's beautiful man there you go look at that it's a beautiful goldfish but it is not a ruby snapper i'm pretty sure these are called a japanese japanese ruby fish or something like that.
If you know in the comments drop a comment let me know exactly what it is it's not a ruby snapper i'm pretty sure it's a japanese ruby fish because of the the mouth extends like this so um i'm about 99 sure it's not a ruby snapper but it is a beautiful goldfish alright it takes an extremely long time.
To get these fish up to the surface the captain just got one looks like another one of them japanese rubies got one yeah come on you big dog get up here that was actually crazy what just happened just then i had a fish on then i got tangled up with old mate in the back here.
His line was around my line i've got the fish was just hooked in the in the lip here and then i had to come around here past my right underneath this little bit of bamboo we're trying to untangle it the fish nearly got off i was like free spawning locking up free spooling unlocking it but we've got it in and it is another.
One of these japanese ruby fish have a look at him beautiful fish a lot of colors look at his big extendable lips let's see if he does that again there's not like big extendable lipsticks fish epic fish look at that man that is a beautiful way to start the day that's the second one on the board for me.
I really want to get a real ruby snapper but these things are pretty dope have a look at that what a way to start the day baby i'm going to kiss every fish i get today just because i can so sick all right we have got the ginormous monster shark on here.
Oh he's here okay all right we've got him up slowly bro all right so i've probably been here for about 40 minutes i've gained about 20 metres of line on this fish this thing is a donkey dude like i'm talking proper zoe knackered.
That's 600 meter spool and this spool is nearly empty so it's 600 500 meters away this is no joke right now look at this i think it's just a massive shark dude this is the best thing about fishing in this deep water you just don't know what you're gonna get.
All right a quick update about 20 minutes has passed since we spoke last i'm still on the end of this fish still got him on all right i'm an hour and 15 minutes into this fight with goliath and it's still not showing that it's going to give up any time soon oh no it's running around the boat.
This is incredible dude an hour and 15 minutes still going what the hell the hell bro what is this that's a show oh but i got it on the tail no wonder why it's so hard to bring in man oh my god all right so we've got a.
Massive thrasher shark but what's happened i've hooked it in the tail that's why it's taken so long to get it up how do you want to do this captain this is psycho huh yeah i want to let it go i don't want to keep it huh i'm just going to grab it.
All right i've got half of a shark here yeah it's happening it's happening right now dr field day he's going to work let's get this hook out of this fella oh man all right there goes the jig all right have a look at this so you guys been gone for a little while.
You've been watching the fishing footage that shark absolutely made me yelp man like i said i got bruises in my arm i was fighting that shark for just under two hours and um spewing it was a shark it took a long time to release but we ended up getting it back into the water.
He swam away very slowly but it was alive it got away and um it was a good fun day's fishing so what i've done with this shelter right now it's probably something that i didn't even think i was going to do but i'm just going to give it a red hot crack because like i said before it was windy now it's.
Even more windy man there's a little bit of cloud coming over here hopefully it doesn't rain but clouds are coming over the wind is extremely strong but this is what we're doing to the smoker right now all right so i'm taking advantage of that creek that's over the back over here.
I'm gonna just found a plastic bottle on the beach unfortunately there's rubbish everywhere again but this bottle is coming in handy so what i'm doing i'm just getting this bottle make a little bit of wet soil while this soil is nice and wet and juicy like that it literally just sticks onto this.
And then once that water drains out of that sand it becomes like look at this man it's like hard concrete you can literally like give it a nice finish so that's what i'm doing i'm just making myself a very nature or natural sort of concrete way don't lose too much of that water.
And then we're just whacking it on and hopefully what i can do is i can build that up the whole way on top that's going to make a completely 100 windproof smoking machine and look i don't know i don't even know what i'm doing right now but it's working like a dream.
So i'm just going to keep making this nature's concrete the sloppier it is the better i found it definitely like fully sticks to itself so it's epic look at that mate we're making a fool this is this is like next level kind of cooking right now have a look at this there is absolutely.
No way in the world that you're going to get wind coming inside this thing right now it is absolutely 100 a windproof smoking machine so once i got that sand nice and wet it's really stuck it's pretty solid i mean it's like really hard solid sand you can even like give it a.
Beautiful finish like a concrete finish look at this that is epic and the inside of it is going to work like an absolute dream so pretty much what i'm thinking of this is nearly sort of not done but it's sort of sort of semi-done so inside here this is where the coconut husk is obviously gonna be it's gonna be smoking.
As you can see here there is no way in the world you're going to get any kind of wind coming in here so it's actually worked out pretty bloody good alrighty well there is absolutely no shortage of coconut husk around here which is a great thing for me right now.
So i'm just gonna try to split it up into some smaller pieces something that's a little bit easier to burn just to start off with because i just tried lighting a piece a full piece like this inside there just then and it's a little bit of a mission to get started so i reckon we'll split a couple of these.
Bits of coconut husk up into smaller sections light these on fire and all we can do is just see what happens like i said i've never done this before i don't really have any idea what i'm doing but we've got fish to cook oh this is working better than i ever.
Ever could have imagined right now i'm i'm blown away dude i'm like full fizz mode right now this thing is smoking it's absolute tits off right now and literally it's been like one minute one and a half minutes since i lit that thing up and look at this it is just bellowing.
Smoke man like we are cooking fish in this thing 100 the only problem that i just thought about just then if that gets really hot inside what might happen is the sand might start drying out like falling inside on top of the fish but i'm just out here to have a little bit of fun and.
Experiment and i want to try to cook fish this way so that's all it is it's an experiment but right now this thing is absolutely pumping i can't believe it's working this good man that is an incredible bloody fish smoker made out of absolutely nothing but junk found on a beach.
That's so rad look at this it's a full smoke party i've got about another 50 coconut shells to put in here still so this thing is going to be full-on smokehouse look at this that fish has got no chance it's going to cook for days man that is incredible all right so what we're going to do here.
We're just going to make a tiny little grill like a grill plate so what it pretty much what i'm trying to achieve here is just to make something where i can have the the mate not sitting anywhere near the heat i want the the mate to be wired up on top of the igloo.
Or on top of the thing that we've built over there so it doesn't get cooked by the heat it actually only gets cooked by the smoke of the coconut husk so here we're just making a little grill this is like a very basic little bush grill they actually work quite well usually.
You'd use green bamboo or green wood for this but because i'm going to suspend it up so high i don't think i'm going to have to use the green bamboo but i just gotta i've just went out i've just kind of heaped these little bits of sticks that's just a little bit of bamboo.
So we just shave these up make sure these are nice and clean because these little bits of bamboo are going to slide into the hole that i just made on that bit of stick or that other piece of bamboo so these have to be nice and clean obviously this is what our fish is going to be sitting on top of so you don't.
Want any sand or any junk sitting on them here we go now the party started all right so that there is pretty much going to be our grill so that's what the fish fillets are going to lay on top of there that's going to go inside of our little smoke machine oven.
Igloo call it what you will it is a bloody masterpiece if i do say so myself shut up matt anyway that's what we've got going on there that's going to be our little grill so we're going to have our beautiful fish village slight very finely sliced fresh fish caught from yesterday.
We'll lay across that it's going to be suspended up high in the igloo and then that smoke is just going to come past that and hopefully coconut smoke induced fish oh that's how we're looking but stage two all right so what we need now we need green bits of sticks probably about green wood about this big.
That's going to stick into the ground and that's what's going to suspend it up away from the heat so where is a nice green stick that's gorgeous look at him that's pretty good actually hey hey hey all right that is very good probably use two more of them that's looking good.
Hey hey hey there we go all right so these are perfect sticks so i'm using a green stick purely because with the dry sticks this is gonna have to be stabbed into the sand and that's where the coconuts are down there they have red hot embers they're.
Smoking so if you use the dry stick i'm pretty sure that's going to burn away so we've got the green sticks and we probably only need them about about this long probably about that big so that'll be that far away from the heat that's going to be perfect so i'll make.
Four of them we'll stick them in the ground the grill will sit on top of that we should be on all right here is a slice or a little bit of a chunk of the beautiful fish we're going to be cooking today so literally just going to cut it up on here little slices maybe i'll actually go long ways because of the.
Shape of our shape of our grill that we've made but not too thick not too thin probably just like this and i'm just going to lay them on our grill that we've made this is incredible look at this all right so we've got a little bit of fish on our grill here.
Definitely fit a little bit more a little bit more on there but there we go i'll keep loading it up alrighty the time has come i've actually put no salt no pepper no coconut oil nothing on here so this is just pure fish i want to see if i can taste that coconut smoke flavour.
So these little coconut husks that i've put in here they're gonna they're about to go up but they're really still they're not really ready yet so you can kind of get them out of there hold them in the breeze and they really start chirping but they're going to go up i'm just going to.
Leave them in there and let's see how long this actually takes it's a full smokehouse that's going to go really smoky in about two or three minutes once it actually catches up but i reckon it's gonna go super humid and hot in there right now that's so rad dude no okay my biggest fears are coming to.
Life right now so what's happened just then is i'm literally like just sitting next to the fire looking at it like a hawk like sitting there in awe how fast it's actually cooking the smoke is actually bellowing out of that thing so fast that the meat's actually cooking but what just happened then i was just.
Sitting there just like looking at it and a little grain a few grains of sand obviously it's getting hot in there so that sand is starting to like crumble so a bit of sand just fell onto the fish it's nothing to worry about it's not too much sand but what i'm going to do i'm going to come up here i'm going to grab one of these.
Banana leaves here and just put like a little banana leaf bed sheet on top of the fish so the smoke can still come from underneath it'll still cook that fish but the top these banana leaves are going to stop the sand from hitting the fish because it is a beautiful fresh fish i.
Don't want it to go to waste and i really really am excited to try this fish so we don't want any sand ruining it so i'm going to go up there grab a banana leaf oh lou the ants in here all right let's be quick that one there is perfect actually that one there is actually perfect.
Thank you let's get out of here it's full and country wait alright we have the perfect banana leaf right here right now let's go and save our fish alright so the fish was actually had a fair bit of sand on it so that's something that i did think was.
Gonna happen and it did happen so the sand is obviously it's getting so hot inside the little teepee we've made it's starting to crumble away but we wasted a little bit of fish there unfortunately but we have still a fair bit of fish to go so what i've done now i've loaded that.
Tray up there's so much more fish on this tray and then all i'm gonna do is get this perfect little banana leaf hopefully without it snapping in the wind you can usually cut perfect little squares off of these like that i'm just going to sit two of them on top.
Of that we'll put it back inside the oven and that 100 will not get any sand on it i might chuck a little rock or two on top of here but that's perfect man back in you go now there's going to be no sand on our fish in there those banana leaves won't dry out either because they're beautiful fresh young.
Banana leaves that actually might trap the smoke as it comes around but as you can see there's not a lot of smoke happening right look at that that's sand we just saved our fish from a little bit of sand already so that actually banana leaf might catch the smoke and actually like circulate it.
Around the fish maybe it's probably a good idea that i've done that but we don't actually need to put rocks on it because this right now is a windproof smoke machine so i'm going to chuck a few more few more um what are they called bloody husks in here get this thing real smoking up there.
Goes a bit more sand lucky all right so the one thing that i'm noticing about this thing that i've built today is it is actually dripping a little bit of sand on the fish so i've just been for a big walk up and down the coast just like wondering how i could improve.
That how i could improve that but still keeping it completely windproof and there is like a lot of rubbish on the beach here there's a lot of like hessian bags but i didn't want to use plastic i didn't want to use anything except for natural materials because like obviously you're smoking.
The meat so it takes a long time to cook and i didn't want to have like plastic inside that smoky meat you know it's going to give it that plastic cancer taste so i'm trying to figure out ways i could have done it like obviously you put banana leaf down first then you put your sand so it's like a reinforced inside.
Wall or maybe this pandanus palm there was probably a lot of ways i could have done it but like like i said i'm just out here for a little bit of fun and it is working like really really bloody well but um look at it it's absolutely just bubbling with smoke right now.
I've been gone for probably about 15 minutes so we'll check on the fish now we'll see how see how it looks hopefully it's a nice golden brown smoky texture oh my goodness mission success check this out all right so i've flipped it once since i spoke to you guys last i turned it over um the banana leaf has a little bit of sand on it not too much.
It's definitely still edible but have a look at the color of the fish it's not like it's been cooked it's actually like smoked meat it's worked actually better look at the color of the inside it's it's cooked to absolute perfection and it's like a nice orangey golden.
Color this is insane see look at that it's like very dry crispy outside obviously that's the smoke coming up and cooking it but that is incredible ready let's dig in so this has no salt no pepper no oil this is just fish and coconut husk smoke so here we go.
Wow all right that is it wait a minute that's weird oh dude all right this is what's going on right now the outside is actually like pretty hard and crusty but the inside is absolutely soft and beautiful like it's soft white meat on the inside.
So the outside is like a really crunchy smoky nailed it nailed it oh it's actually really bloody good i've still got one more little bit of fish i can chuck back on there actually but that's incredible dude it's pretty interesting how it cooked i hope hopefully you guys can see.
Like the color it's a nice golden color oh man that absolutely nailed that you've got to be kidding me i'm just sitting here literally i've nearly eaten the whole entire tray of fish we've got one bit left one bit left here i'm just thinking to myself like how i could have improved what i made today.
I've got one more piece of fish to cook like a little bit like that much to cook left i want to cook it the same way i just did because it's absolutely bloody outstanding i'm just sitting here having a little bit of a fade and then the whole entire wall of our volcano.
Of our igloo call it what you will it just collapsed just then so i don't think i'll be cooking any more fish have a look at this all right so obviously it got so bloody hot this sand started getting really hot it's actually not that hot to be honest that's strange but anyway yeah the sand.
It is just sand like it's not actual concrete or anything this is just beach sand that i molded together with a little bit of water but that wall just broke away as i was eating so obviously i'm not going to be able to cook again in there unless i rebuild the whole wall but that the um coconut husk has all gone.
Out obviously that sand hit it but there you go that's why i use the green sticks because they don't burn so there's our four little green sticks that we had and another one there this thing worked like an absolute dream there's probably a few little improvements i could have made but i'm going to call it mission success it.
Was actually really good i've still got one beautiful piece of fish left over here and this is actually really epic these little young fellas have come down here they've got this massive kite it's like three meters wide they're about to send that thing up in the sky i've got one beautiful piece of fish.
Left here what a bloody successful mission have a look at that that's our last bit of fish absolutely it actually tastes really good you don't actually need salt pepper oil none of that stuff on it it tastes it's really hard to describe the taste but it's bloody beautiful all right i'm gonna see these fellas.
With this quite in the air it's massive go go go go go yeah the monster kite wow listen to that thing man it's like a jet plane there are these takes four people to hold on to that kite how this kid's getting dragged off the ground what an incredibly bloody good day that.
Was that is a video that i've been wanting to do for a very very long time i've wanted to try to build a smoking machine on the beach for so long and for some reason i've just never got around doing it so i'm so happy right now i'm happy i'm content it was a successful we did it we.
Smoked fish in a smoker made from materials on the beach i'm fizzing right now i've got a massive walk all the way back to where i started on this beach which is all the way down here but look at that on an absolutely bloody beautiful site i have to walk towards.
This is what it's all about going outside having fun getting off the couch turning off all your social media junk this is it look at it it's everything all right guys if you want to grab your merge smash this button here we've just had new hats on the online shop drop so.
