Hi from Blackpool, UK

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody, I've been a member on smf for a couple of years & find it great to get tips on all aspects of BBQ. After all this time I thought I would introduce myself.
I started smoking when I saw a chef on tv lightly smoking some fish in a tiny tin box & thought I'd like to try it. Off I went on eBay & got a fish smoker. Pretty quickly I realised that you could smoke other things rather than just fish but I would need something bigger, that's when I bought my proQ excel & I love it.
Would post photos but haven't figured that out yet.

Hi Lozza

Welcome to the ever growing Brit contingent on SMF welcome1.gif. What else do you smoke now? Cheese too I expect. Some photos would be great when you get the chance.


As you like the hot smoked salmon you might find this of interest.

Hi, My name is Steve Binkowski. originally from Buffalo NY living in Sarasota FL for 20+ yrs.

I have been making sausages since I was in my teens, my dad taught me. But we used to make fresh sausage without smoking, bought a hot & a cold smoker last year (Big Chief cold smoker & a Cabelas 7 in 1 smoker,) love them both.

I really enjoy making Smoked Polish Sausage, beef stix. meatloaf, fish.

Been following SMF for some time, thought I would join the forum and share smoking tips & stories with my fellow smokers.


Glad to be aboard,

Hi Wade, I do cold smoke cheese which is great on burgers, garlic bulbs, chillies & even sea salt with various degrees of success.
I've done all sorts of BBQ smoking pork shoulders, pork & beef ribs, beer can chicken & this weekend I'm doing a British brisket which is rolled & quite small so I'm going to try & do it similar to the beef ribs I did which turned out ok, not anywhere close to the amazing beef ribs & brisket I've seen on you tube & on BBQ pitmasters but they were enjoyed by my small group of friends.
Practice makes perfect I guess.
Thanks for the link that looks fantastic & a similar cure that I use for my cold smoked salmon.
