Good enough?[edit]

Arbroath Smokie (3512960528).jpg

The legend about origin ... a bit fishy?[edit]

It's a nice story, but I can't find any support for it. It is in Tom Aikens Fish book – but that was published in 2008 and the text is identical to Wikipedia's (dating from 2006) and so smells like a crib. Does anybody know more? Alexbrn (talk) 13:22, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

You've got a potential reference at http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/arbroath/auchmithie/index.html, most other sites are using (largely uncredited) Wikipedia stuff. The old village hall at Auchmithie burned down, I suspect that's probably mingled its way into the history of the Smokie over the years. Nick (talk) 12:29, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Cool - thanks! Alexbrn (talk) 12:32, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
