HOLIDAYS

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello Folks.  Our Group has been going now for just over 13 months.  Since starting, the Group has attracted 115 "Family members".  32 from the States and 83 from outside the U.S.A..  We had our first Annual smoking weekend ( a success I thought ) with the second already planned for July, 2015.  I don't think that's too shabby considering what most folks think of when talking BBQ/Smoking in the U.K..  I'd like to thank everyone for their contributions and efforts to keep the Group growing and especially the help given to me and mine.

 

As I am sure everyone will be busy smoking for Christmas and New Year I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone in the "family" a VERY Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year.  I hope you and those you love are well and I hope next year brings even more happiness.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Danny and Annette

Hi Danny. I think that we have formed a great team this year. Thank you for starting it all off with the UK Smokers group.

 

Yes the smoker is busy for Christmas. Having unexpectedly found myself the proud owner of two turkeys this year They were both smoked on Sunday.

 

 

The Chestnuts were smoked and the salmon is still in the smoker.

 

Tomorrow the ham gets cooked in cider and cloves before being BBQ roasted.

 

Merry Christmas to everyone on SMF

OH COME ON GUYS!  He is using that spray paint they use for tv adverts!  Have you never noticed your fast food burger never looks like the advert??  AIR BRUSHED!!  :ROTF

 

 

 

Is a GREAT looking bird my friend.  I'll just bet it tastes even better than it looks if that is possible.  Merry Christmas to you and those you love.  Hope you all have a very healthy New Year.

Had to do it for real this time Danny. The last time I lent you my air brush to colour your ribs it came back clogged up with gravy browning :biggrin:

 

One of the things I forgot to mention was the smoked trout. It smoked along side the bacon and was ready for slicing tonight too

 

 

I find carving it quite therapeutic

 

Thanks for the kind words Danny. There is a pack here with your name on it Thumbs Up. I may be up in your neck of the woods in February.

Hello.  Just simple turkey leg quarter for me and the Missus this year.  Salt and black pepper and into the fridge uncovered for 24 hours.

 

 

Ready for the Weber.  300-350 for 1-1 1/2 hrs..  Got to start using that Mav..

 

 

 

Add some wood chips for smoke.  Pecan, cherry and a little oak.  Yes it is a heavy smoke and pretty white but as said before in small amounts and when done in under an hour no bad tastes will result.

 

 

 

That ought to do it.

 

Thanks for looking.  Happy Healthy Holidays.  Keep Smokin!

Danny
