    Hello there

    My handle is, The Piro, been one since I was a kid.

    A day out hunter gathering just isn’t right without a fire and a cook out. Got most of the Piro gadgets, Kelly kettle, collapsible wood burning stove, various sorts of small camping stoves, can do the trick with the flint and steel. Yes, defiantly a Piro, Was a fire fighter but now have a less exciting job, and retirement is round the corner.

    We are also bee keepers and makers of jams from what we find in the woods and hedgerows.

    Have a small camping smoker that I have played with for several years, but now that I have got us a retirement cottage by the sea in the South West it is time to go up market. The local cash and carry is doing a good deal on a cheep 2 box Landmann style smoker so I will give it a bash.

    One of this summers project will be learning the ropes of how to smoking food for long storage.

    Regards

    The Piro

    Welcome Piro, glad you decided to join us.
    I thought about trying to raise some bees after they died off a few years back, but haven't gotten that far yet.

    Thanks Gang for the great welcome, I can see that I am going to enjoy this list.

    I am going to the cash and carry to day and will get my smoker and a halogen table top grill for the cottage. I will take the Smoker to the cottage this week end but wont get it running until I am there next month , Easter is a busy time.

    Seeing I am out and about in the company’s time I will drop into the local home brew shop for some extra supplies, I think I am going to need more booze

    Regards

    Piro

    Hi Folks


    No thermometer

    Just back from the Cash and Cary with my very own smoker. Its one of those Horizontal Smoker with Offset Firebox but I suspect a very basic one without a thermometer.

    Is there any particular thermometer that I can fit or do I just use the meat thermometer. I was thinking of drilling a whole in the cover and dropping the prod of one of the round faced type thermometer in place.

    Any advice welcome.

    Regards

    Piro
