Hi Again, not been around for a while.

Hi Folks.
2015 was a bit of of a year to forget for me, 2016 doesn't look much better yet, but I hope things will eventually sort themselves out a bit.

During the last year I have had little time to devote to hot, or cold smoking. Cold smoking has really got me, so that is what I have devoted any spare time to.
This Christmas I had some holiday I had to use, so for the first time in ten years, I have had Christmas off and boy has the weather been pants, I should have seen that coming.

I will post up my experiments in separate threads, so you can have squint at where I am at. It's good to be back with that smoky smell in my cloths again.

I hope you all had a good Xmas, and Happy New Year to you all.

Best Regards
Baz.

HI BAZ!  Glad to see you back.  My 2015 was pretty bad also.  Looking up now though.  You need to include me with you and Steve!  I am just in Newark.  Not too far to come have a pint or two and a chat.  We have a couple more members close by ( Lincoln and such )  Maybe a meal out?  Just a thought.  Keep Smokin!

That's not a bad idea there then Danny, have a chat with Smokin Monkey and see when you can make it. I am good for Saturday evening if that's any good to either of you.

Just a quick catch up. Had a call today, and waiting on further details, but it looks like I have to fly out to Gibraltar to carry out urgent repairs to a ship, that will be docking there for 10 hours on Saturday. This needs to move fast as I am Flying out to India early hours Tuesday for my Holidays/Vacation.

You guys go ahead if you have anything planned and I will catch up with you both in February👍🛳

Your feet are hardly going to touch the ground. No worries, I hope all goes well and you have a fab time on holiday.

Will be busy, ship will be anchored of Gibraltar for about 10 hours to take on fuel and provisions. I have that time to find faults with either the computer system, wiring or temperature sensors, sensing the temperature in the holds. They have been trying to find fault for about two months now!

Would prefer to catch up with the ship in somewhere like Cape Town or Panamah. Then two to three weeks with the ship as it sails to Europe.

They are man sized fridges there then. Good luck, if they are intermittent they can be pains to pin down.
