Hi from the UK

Just thought i'd say a quick hi to you all.
I have had a gas grill for a few years but it doesn't really get used however i have just discovered the joy of smoking stuff.
I managed to pick up a secondhand barely used smoker to start with before i take the plunge and buy either a wsm or a pro q frontier.
So far i have smoked a few racks of ribs, a whole chicken and tonight i did a 7lb pork shoulder which was superb.
Anyway enough of my ramblings and apologies in advance for any dumb qustions i ask.



Cheers

Kev

Welcome to The Forum Kev, sounds like you have really been bitten by the BBQ bug. No dumb questions here ask away and I'm betting you'll get at least one answer and maybe more than you want.

Now be careful you dont get burned out on the bbq flavor. That can happen to folks who eat it too much. I have tole this story before..lol..but..we got into the comp bbq hobby one time and the 2nd cookoff we attended met a legendary figure on the Texas comp circuit named Stanley Wells from Bryan, TX. Stanley come over to mooch some early coffee and I was trying to make polite conversation. I ask him.."Do yall like to eat bbq?" Stanley says, "Hell no boy..my neighbors dogs do not even like bbq anymore." lol. We finally went to enough cookoffs and trying to eat and give away the leftovers..it became clear he knew of what he was speaking. Now the neighbor's dogs did always seem glad to get it.

Sadly here in the UK our weather will not allow me to BBQ that often as it's either blowing a gale or it's raining!

Well as much as I dont like agreeing with Max very often..lol..will say dittos. Weather is not an issue for them who are dedicated and motivated. Now it can keep the summer soldiers in the house. There is a multitude of tried and true methods to make it possible to cook in all scenarios. I cooked chickens in a sideways rainstorm with winds gusting to 70 mph. Old fellow esteemed chat forum member named Griff cooks in snowdrifts 20' deep. He lives up near the N. Pole of course. As long as you have plenty of hooch..it can be done. Thats an old timey homopathetic remedy for the chill banes ya know?
