Hello from Perth, Western Australia

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by fursey, Jan 27, 2015.

  1. Greetings everyone.

    I am a virgin smoker residing in Perth, Western Australia. I original hail from London, UK where we didn't do too much BBQ.

    Up until now I have only every used a gas grill and when looking to purchase a new grill (ended up purchasing a Webber Q) I discovered the possibilities of BBQ smoking.

    Yesterday I brought home my bespoke offset vertical smoker.  I intend on only using mangrove charcoal rather than brickettes or heat beads with fruit and Australian indigenous woods for smokey flavour. 

    Now I just have to learn to use the bloody thing.  Looking forward to the tears and cheers as my learning experience progresses.

    Thanks for reading.

    I too work for an England based company and one of my coworkers over there said 'smoking meat' is awfully rare. He built a charcoal smoker and gets cuts of meat from the local butcher, turned into one hell of a smoker. We bounce ideas and recipes off one another.

    Learn how your smoker keeps the heat, keep notes, and do adjust your setting, after a few burns, you'll know how to pull some good meat off that smoker.

  5. Only tried seasoning it last night but had trouble getting up to any real temperature with all vents open.  I'm gonna try again tonight
