Smoked with Oak, Beech and wine casks from Rioja Alavesa vineyard.
This is the most prestigious method there is. The meat remains raw, soft and tender throughout the 20 to 30°C smoking process by impregna- ting it with smoke rather than coo- king it, which causes the loss of the innate qualities of the meat as a re- sult of the heat treatment to which it is subjected in hot smoking.
We keep flames away the combus- tion process because fire produces phenols and benzopyrenes that give an unpleasant taste, as well as being toxic. The chips we use to produce smoke are kept incandescent without burning.
The total elaboration process lasts three days. First the tuna is marina- ted for 24 hours with unrefined vir- gin salts and sugars. Then we begin to smoke it with several combustion processes. The smoke is changed every 40 minutes to make a “clean smoke”. The third step is leaving the meat to mature for 24 hours giving the smoke time to rest. After that the product is ready for delivery.
