Welcome to the UK smoking and BBQ forum.

Over the past few years the smoking and BBQ community has been steadily growing within the UK. With the increasing number of specialist restaurants opening and street food BBQ becoming ever more popular more people are looking into how they can recreate this in their own back garden. BBQ competitions are now held regularly throughout the UK and meat and music festivals are regular calendar events.

This forum has been created to help bring together a number of different resources that are used by the BBQ and Smoking community. We are not in competition with any of them but work in cooperation with them to help the UK smoking and BBQ community to grow.

In the age of instant Social Networking why do we need a forum?
There are some very active BBQ forums out there that receive many hundreds of posts a day. These are great for instant information that is immediate and timely. These include  Country WoodSmoke (CWS) and the British BBQ Society (BBBQS) Facebook sites. Both of these are used regularly by members of the WoodSmoke Forum. Information posted here though is quite transient and rapidly becomes hard to find. The longer after very helpful information is posted the more difficult it becomes to find. With a forum format the longer term reference information can be saved in a way that is easier to find for both current and future members.
We encourage members who post here to share their experience within the appropriate forum areas and to link to it from other forms of social media.

This forum is there for you to use as a knowledge resource. We have tried to make it as simple to navigate, search and post as possible and we welcome all sensible suggestions as to how it can be improved. If there is a discussion category that you think is missing or could be better structured then please let us know so that potential changes can be considered by the Admins. 

Who should post?
This forum is open to everyone interested in smoking and BBQ. If you have only grilled a sausage before and want to learn more, are a moderate or seasoned smoker who wants to both share and consolidate their skills, a regular BBQ competition competitor or a BBQ/Smokehouse restaurant owner there are areas here that will be of interest.

How much does it cost?
Standard access to the forum is free. We do however have the running costs of the forum to cover and so we do offer some subscription options

  • Standard membership - FREE. this gives full access to the main forum and resources.
  • Premier membership - By paying a small subscription you can have the advertising suppressed and the knowledge that you are supporting a good cause.
  • Forum Sponsor -  Have your logo and details displayed within the forum and  the ability to advertise relevant products and services.

I'm glad we got steered in this direction...I'm on a couple of beer & wine forums that are either in the USA or Aussie so it's great to have a UK based site.
