Hello SMF! Dan Cooke from Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, UK. Still yet to smoke anything but my home made smoker is nearly finished. Just have to insulate and attached the door. Looking to get it up and running for the 14th, just in time for the England's first world cup game. My smoker is 1.2 metres tall and 0.6 wide with a 1500w hob for smoke creation purposes. (ill post some pictures soon!) My love of BBQ came from a summer spent in Texas on a summer camp and my travels after that summer and the two summers after. Ive travelled all around the south and loved every minute!! shame its so hard to get a visa!! Looking forward to picking everyone's brain over the next couple of weeks. First question, any prep i should do before smoking for the first time? Thanks!!!
