    hi am peter, i live over at the original Birmingham in the UK. mid fourties and know nothing about bbq and smoking food, all i do know is that i hate my badly chared burnt offerings we blokes seem to do.

    so i plan to make a small smoker, trash bin size

    or even a 50 gallon barrel combination, but none of your 200 gallon tanker jobbies on wheels, my garden is to small!!

    i will mainly do hot smoking but once or twice a year when a certain fish is close by but to preserve them i will cold smoke.

    I like the idea of making my own bangers too (sausages)

    starting with the basics first and then on towards the more complex ones

    I wont be making lots of posts as i will spend most of my time seaching and reading the old ones for a while

  4. [​IMG] welcome to the forum

    When you say bangers, is that what you call all sausage? or are you speaking of the fresh  breakfast type sausages?

    First off welcome to SMF there Pete. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.

    Welcome To Your New Addiction
