    BBQ Charcoal

    Can't make up my mind about charcoal, I probably use it 30/35% of the time. The rest of the time briquettes......yesterday I ordered a load of hardwood logs as where we are moving to has a log burner. That means I'll be able to try out cooking over wood, much like the other thread about using wood only. Ice.

    So, let me get this straight... when we need something that is not actually made by anyone in the UK, all we have to do is let you know and you will arrange to have it manufactured here for us??

    Dry Age Bags...

    The dry ageing process for steaks is different to the dry curing process used in things like Bresaola and salamis. It is a process where the meat is allowed to begin to break itself down (autolyse) in a controlled way in order to provide a greater depth of flavour. Yes eventually, if taken too far, the meat will get to a point where it will be described as having "gone off".

    Cost of postage from USA

    The biggest problem with price from items shipped from the USA is that the UK Customs and Excise are now much stricter in applying the import duty on small items than they used to be. If the item is over £135 in value including postage (and the weaker pound recently has meant that US items are more expensive) then you will have to pay import duty - which is usually 2.5%. If the value of the item is greater than £18 then you will also have to pay VAT on top of the import duty - which is usually 20%. On top of this the company importing the goods into the UK can add a handling charge for dealing with the customs payments. With Royal Mail this charge is £8. So you see, all these put the costs right up. After Brexit we may also face similar levels of duty and charges when buying things from Europe too.

    Hi David and welcome to the forum The Weber Kettle is one of the most versatile all-round smokers that you can start with. It will hold steady temperatures foe long periods of time and id great for grilling, hot roasting, hot smoking and cold smoking. I have had a play with the Weber Summit but the price has been the barrier to me owning one so far. The Smokenator came a little too late for me as I had already developed my techniques for low-and-slow in the Kettle, though I have used one and it worked well. Do you have any photos of it in action? As you will have already discovered the quality of the meat plays a big part in the end result. Will you be getting your brisket from a local producer/butcher. Have you had thoughts of how you are going to prepare it? A whole brisket is A LOT of meat. Let me know if you need someone to help you eat it once it is smoked 😀. As you will have seen, we have some very keen Sous Viders here and it will be great to hear what you have cooked so far. Don't forget - it is not only what has turned out well but it is also good to hear about the things that have not. Learning from others bad experiences is just as important.
  15. That short delay will not be a problem

    cooking over wood

    I use a mixture of wood, depends on what my local (Nephew) tree surgeon brings me. I build a fire and as the embers fall down these are what you use. A good tap with a poker helps the drop.

    cooking over wood

    I had some beech wood when I was staying at a cottage in the summer. I used quite a few logs but probably only needed 4 or 5 chunks of wood if that.

    cooking over wood

    Thanks guys Can I ask what wood you used please. Also embers when its died off? and too much? Cheers
  21. Hi. I salted/cured a side of salmon over night..last night and washed it off this morning. Had to be out all day and have just got back well and truly kerry packered . I just can’t face going out in the cold and dark to start the smoker off! I just hope delaying till the morning won’t spoil the salmon. It is of course in the fridge......your observations please!

    Morrison’s

    I get most of my meat from my local Morrisons, usually really good. They tended to only have rolled briskets but they now do a pastrami style brisket, it's great because it's flat so you get a really good idea of the size of the joint, and it's got a great marinade with it. I've smoked a couple now and have to say I was impressed, lovely and simple if you want a very quick to prepare piece of meat to stick in the smoker. Ok they're not massive but they're a decent price so I have purchased 2 or 3 each time I've done them.

    That's handy to know, will have a look later. It's crazy the postage from that side the pond. I've seen stuff I may go for, the price looks good when you look at the P&P it's more than the item your buying. Ice.
