Just thought I’d say hi...living in Northampton, UK. I’m waiting for my first smoker (WSM) to be delivered this week after having used Weber kettles for a few years now, so will be digging through for tips and recipes etc. Cheers!

Hi Simon and welcome to the forum. There are a few of us from the UK who chat here. The Weber kettle is a versatile smoker to begin with and the WSM is a good choice (as is the ProQ) to move on to. You may be interested in a BBQ smoking weekend that we hold each year (this will be our 6th year) and it is not too far from you at Billing Aquadrome. This is a family BBQ meet that is designed for enthusiasts of all abilities and does not involve any competition. If you want to meet others who can help you make the most of your WSM then please come along. It is a free event and will only cost you your camping pitch at Billing if you decided to stay over rather than "commute". You can find more information about it here

Great to have you on board

Wow...thanks all for the big welcome! Excited waiting for the WSM to arrive....although the boss was distinctly unimpressed when I told her :emoji_laughing:
