    Can you tell what it is yet ?



    ProQ Frontier, bring on the good weather
     
  6. I bought one in June and it's great.

    You'll have great fun with it.

    A great toy indeed [​IMG]. You will have some good smokes in there. How come you were allowed to buy it?

    If you need help and advice about temperature control just ask Paul (Resurrected) as he has now had lots of practice [​IMG]

    Also treat the lid temperature gauge as a work of fiction - they are not very accurate. The unit helpfully has a couple of temperature probe holes at cooking grate level so you can pop your Maverick probes in there.

    I've just ordered a Maverick ET-733. £46.00 from a US Ebay seller, brand new and includes all tax & duties.

    Yep two grommeted holes for the maverick. Wade, I just told her I was having one, and when I could see again she took pity on me.

    Like the new bullet!  Good for you mate!  Still like your table top unit.  You should have fun with that.  Great buy.  Happy for ya.  Keep Smokin!

    Sadly Danny the Bradley Counter top Smoker has gone the way of most of them, the great smokehouse in the sky. It heats up, but produces NO smoke.

    Its a notourious thing that they fail, but I got two and a half years out of it

    Just got mine last week. Have had 2 dry runs, one for seasoning and go full pelt and the second to mess around with the air inlets to do some mock temp control - was so amazed on Friday on my second seasoning how it held temperature, I know I am new to this but still it was very impressive. Was using Aussie Heat Beads in the spirt of the Ashes (no pun intended) with some Oak chips.

    Beef Short Ribs I think, may do a few veggies too on the side. 
     
  17. I've just popped these on mine about 15 mins ago

    Going to do some wings on the kettle later. Sprinkled with a little seasoning, then going to heat some Nando's hot Piri Piri sauce with butter to pour over them when cooked.

    Then the obligatory veggie burger for her who must be obeyed :devil:

    Had its first run today, up in the 300f range to start. Playing with the vents, sat at 260f for the last hour,cherry wood is smoking, less leaks than I thought there would be, and as has been said, the temp gauge is WAY out.

    Looking forward to the first cook, probably Saturday.
     
  19. Nice one Dave. I've never managed to get mine to 300F, what fuel were you using?

    Some cheap briquetts and a few heat beads, lit in a chimney. Not a lot of fuel, temp starting to drop no,259f. No racks and no waterpan.
