My name is Jonny and I live in England just outside London in Essex and I'm pleased to join what I understand is THE best forum for smoking.
I've got a Pro-Q Frontier bullet smoker with an additional third ring and to date I've mainly cold smoked cured salmon, pork belly for bacon, trout, cheese and salt with great success - especially the bacon and salmon which I've done without any nitrates or nitrates and I'm still here and not poisoned anyone yet! I've also had a go a hot smoking lamb and will be having a go at some eel when I next get down to Billingsgate Fish Market in London - hence my avatar - once tried never forgotten!
As it's getting a bit warmer over here I'm stocking up on woods to do some hot smoking and hope to get lots of good tips and advice from the experts and novices like myself here.
I also grow chilli peppers and If anyone is interested I give you some advice on growing them or if you live locally to me even a plant or two to get you going including some very unusual varieties from Japan and I should have free seeds for 40+ varieties by the end of the season to share. I hope to hear from you.
Bye for now
