Hi fellow fans of the smoke,


You've won over another British convert.  I lived in the U.S. for a short while (Fla) and have for many years been lucky enough to work alongside your military personnel who very quickly introduced me to the delights of REAL Barbeque!  The downside has been that I hate being invited to UK BBQ's now.  Burned chicken drumstick does not a bbq make!


I built myself a UDS and having been getting great results!  So far I have made oak smoked brisket (my personal favourite), as well as applewood smoked pork shoulder and applewood smoked chicken, this was a bit too smokey for my taste but it is a work in progress!


Well, that's enough about me, I'm off to explore the forums!

Patch, welcome to SMF!  Glad to hear you are a Q-fanatic.  Soon people will quit inviting you to their BBQs, expecting you to invite them to yours!  Be sure to check out the "Groups" section at the top of the page and join the UK Smokers group, which will be 145 members strong with you.  They are quite an active bunch of smokers.


Have fun with the UDS.

Thanks Ray,


I'll check out the Brits section of the Forum and see if I can get myself and invite around their BBQ parties!

Hi Smokin Monkey,


Thanks for the invite to the BBQ weekend, I'll certainly attend that one as it's just up the road from me.


I'm not too far from you actually.  I live in a small village called Bottesford, near Grantham.
