Hi Fellow Smoke-a-holics
Been a long time Lurker on these forums and then stumbled across the UK Smokers group of which If had found this earlier I would have posted sooner, I love trawling these forums and looking at all the BQQ Porn
currently only have a 57cm Weber which since finding about Smoking\indirect it has completely changed my BBQ's even when just doing Burgers and sausages & drumsticks. I have tried my fair share of Small Joints, steaks all have worked out quite well and been devoured quite quick the only item I wasn't happy with was a some Ribs I tried even though I did the 2-2-1 method and used Apple juice during the smoking but it wasn't the end result wasn't as good as I hoped, I think it might have been slightly over cooked but you live and learn and didn't expect everything i tried to work first time, but I would say that all ribs were devoured with only bone left so they couldn't have been as bad as I thought. I like the constant learning process as everytime I get the weber out you learn something new.
I have been toying with the Idea of buying a Weber Smokey Mountain due to all the good reviews on the forums but Im have been thinking of going down the UDS road and procurring an oil drum and building a UDS (or fingers crossed a Not-So-Ugly-Drum-Smoker) I will be taking photo's from Start to (hopefully) completion, but a little bit stuck on sourcing local materials in Stoke for the fire basket but I'm sure i'll stumble across something, any help or idea's from fellow UDS Builders would be appriciated
