    Hi there. I am  in London, England, near Epping Forest.

    I am a very keen cook and have a small business/hobby making and selling cakes, jams, jellies and chutneys. We grow our own veg and keep chickens.

    I am new to this smoking lark. I have only been doing it since May. I got into it because my son  wanted an authentic American style BBQ for his birthday.

    American style BBQ is the new restaurant fashion here at the moment.

     I don't know just how authentic the pulled pork and ribs were but there wasn't any left.

    I have a gas BBQ which also allows me to use charcoal trays and I am experimenting with smoking using this.

    I have a landmann smoker which I have used but find it a chore to keep the temperature steady while using charcoal. 

    My hubby has made me a wooden cold smoker which I use with a ProQ to cold smoke cheese, vegetables, butter, cream and salmon.

    i have recently bought a Peetz smoker which is supposed to work by electric as well as charcoal but doesn't so I use it a second cold smoker.
