I'm Andy from Guildford UK.
I'm 52, and I love food and been into cooking and experimenting with food all my life.
I've got the smoking bug bad, after seeing too many episodes of Man V Food, but have so far only smoked a sirloin steak on my mother's weber gas bbq, using some hickory sawdust bought locally. Good flavour but a bit dry. Practice makes perfect!
So I need a smoker - not sure whether to buy one or make one, but I have been kindly advised that there's a forum about just this :)
I spent most of today, cutting down unwanted apple wood branches, which I plan on using for my next smoke quest, using some mackerel fillets. I shall keep you posted.
