Hi'all from London. WSM 14.5" and zip experience.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey there,

Just thought I'd introduce myself . Name's Paz. Just picked up a 14.5" WSM after a first and only failed attempt with budget Ebay number that I couldn't get above 90c. In-bone brisket came out tough and unsafe due to inadequate temp. Thought. I'd give smoking a miss and just go hot and fast had enough chops and burgers for a few months and really wanted a deep beefy taste. Did first cook of bone-in brisket slice and ribs a few days ago . It was a fail that I'll post up because I've got a lot of questions.

Cheers.

Hey Paz, welcome to the site.  Congratulations on your new smoker.

 

You've found a great place to gain some knowledge on smoking, just ask your questions.

 

The site's search engine works pretty well too.

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.

For more help with your 14.5 WSM visit the Mini-WSM forum. Even though the bulk of them are home built they perform the same. Once you get it figured out that smoker will be rock solid.

Hi Paz

 

To help follow up your question I have started a new thread for you here in the UK forum http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/238856/hiall-from-london-wsm-14-5-and-zip-experience. If it asks you to register to post just say yes as this is just a formality.

 

We need a little more information about what you have already tried and then we should be able to help.

 

Cheers

 

Wade

Thank'you all for the welcomes! I've found myself reading articles and posts about smoking techniques at 2.00am, I can feel the twinges of an obsession starting here. Just starting the journey and it's a total buzz. Thanks Wade - on it right now.
