Hiya Paz, Welcome to the forum.
There are some fantastic people on here with some great experience, so you have definitely come to the right place. You will be up & running in no time.
Just to give you a bit of an update, As smoking has gained popularity in the UK we have been given our own group, "UK Smokers". We still come under the watchful eye of the main forum and have plenty of support from our american cousins, but somethings are different in the UK and that's where the UK forum comes into it's own. The UK Smokers is rapidly growing with members from up and down the country with a wealth of experience in all areas.
We have an Annual Smoking Weekend at Woodhall Spa near Lincoln so it is easy for everyone from the north & south to attend. Most of the active members attend, and cook a dish, have a chat, exchange ideas, pick up tips from other members, grab a few beers and have a great weekend. You are more than welcome to join us next year.
We have members from both sides of the pond so it you post a question in the UK Forum, there is a good chance it will get answered from both the UK and the US.
Smokin Monkey has sent you the links to the UK Smokers page and also the UK roll call so I look forward to seeing you over there, and feel free to post on the UK forum.
Where did you hear about the UK Smokers Forum just so we know how you found us.
