Hi everyone, I bought a Char-Griller with side box last year and have used it a number of times with some great results IMO. I found the Thermapen absolutely brilliant, saves so much time and guesswork.
Done a number of pork bellies, pork shoulder, ribs etc.
I prefer to make my own rubs and sauces, use recipes from all over.
I've also made a small (4' x 20" x 12") cold smoking cabinet out of spare wood and used chromed B&Q saucepan stands for shelves. I have done sausages, bacon, cheese in this, again all good - well, actually i have to say they all taste most excellent. Use one of those spiral Pro Q cold smoke generators with various woods.
Also have a gas 3 plate grill for a quick burger type BBQ.
All my stuff is outside, at the mercy of the weather (covered with tarpaulin / sheeting though) so i cannot cook as often as i would like. So today it's raining quite heavily and 7deg C.
Look forward to finding some new ideas for the spring !
Cheers for now !!
