Once again welcome Thorne.
Hi David. Welcome to the forum from another Kent smoker
Hello (again) everyone!
I discovered Texas BBQ when I lived in Austin about thirty years ago and used to go to Poke-e-Joe's frequently. Since then I've spent a lot of time in Raleigh and discovered NC BBQ but I'm not so keen on the BBQ sauce from that part of the world. On a business trip to Overland Park, KS, I had burnt ends at Jack Stack and they were so delicious!
I've been BBQ'ing myself for years on a Cypriot Foukou rotisserie barbecue. I mainly cook pork souvla in the Greek style but also chicken and even goose over charcoal.
I've recently bought an 18.5" Weber Smokey Mountain. I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in to cooking outdoors for the summer. So far, I have made pork belly burnt ends (Malcolm Reed's recipe) and Meathead's Last Meal Ribs. All came out absolutely first class.
I have pimped my WSM somewhat and it just gets better and better!
Thanks for reading this!
hello all. i found the smoking forum from a facebook link that was pushed over to me. from there i found the uk side of it. sorry boss but when i first saw the americian side front page i discounted the forum, i appoligise for that one.
any waay i am a fifty year old newbie, i have never done anything other than burn sausages and frozen cheap and nasty burgers ontop of self lighting petrol filled charcoal bricks and never enjoyed any of it ever.
a friend recently gave me a very grotty old lift shelf type charcoal grill with a lid and that started me on the slippery slope towards bbq heaven.
i still only have that grill and its a small one at that but suits the two person cooking i want to do.
i do have a decent bag of charcoal to go in it and a couple of small lumps of oak blocks to go in with those as well.
i would like to get a seperate smoke box bbq but at the moment we mainly grill every thing and have not the equipment to go slow and low
as a newbie i wont be spending out on any thing just yet, rubs and sauces will be small quantity home made ones and i wont be buying any million pound bbqs for a while yet as i dont know what i want from it or the different styles.
as for future posts for now i shall wander off and start in the search button sections and do some research and then come back once i know what i want to get.
burnt offerings for now pete
