  1. Past hour
  2. Came out really well.. I didn't take a pick unfortunately. The only issue I had was I over smoked it.. The wife and kids loved it but it was too much for me. As I am using the wood chips that came with the smoker I put 2 fist fulls in when it got up to temp. And stuck the meat in. I was thinking I should let the Thomas the tank engine smoke die down first then add the meat.. I did try using a smoke box but in my thinking reduced the amount of coals I could have in the basket. I just need to figure out about how much to add and when to add it. Or would you suggest lump wood is better. And do you add that right away while bringing up to temp... Besides that for 1st attempt I was happy.. Trying chicken at the moment.. And got to temp, put 2 hand full of chips, waited for the thick white smoke to die Down and stuck the bird on.. Now sat in the sun feet up watching the wife cut the grass hahaha...
  3. Can an admin delete my doubled topic? Not sure what happened 😁

    Bone in Rib

    So, you lucky guys and gals are going to be treated to my smoking ineptitude twice in one weekend!! Went to get some charcoal and salad and got this beauty for Β£13. Just dry rubbed in salt paprika garlic onion sugar and cumin and I'll leave it for an hour before chucking it on. Probably gonna indirect but hot with a pan of water under it. Any advice? It's pretty big so I guess the sausages can wait till tomorrow πŸ˜πŸ‘ The wife thinks it's all for me at the moment πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  6. Today
  7. Looking forward to it. Make sure you get some pictures.
  8. That sounds like an issue there. See what the company says when you complain.
  9. I'm afraid it has affected it, its a b***h to light! Wouldn't light in the kettle, wouldn't light with my electric thing, in the end I've used a whole pile of kindling wood in the bottom of the grate and had a mini bonfire to get it going.
  10. Not had any mine arrive damp, bag and lumpwood bone dry, but I suppose how and where it is stored may affect the bag over time. So long as the lumpwood is dry, it should be fine (If the bag still has dry dust in it, I would assume the damp hasn't affected it)?. If not happy and delivered locally, have a word with the coalman and see what he says. if online vendor a bit more difficult. I personally always transfer an open bag of CPL or any bag of charcoal into a big plastic storage box with a plastic liner as mine is kept outside in one of those plastic garden storage seats things.
  11. I've just opened my first bag of CPL and the inside on the inner bag, ( made from god knows what) is really quite damp. Is this usual?
  12. How did it turn out in the end?
  13. So I've been cogitating on this for a few days now, and I've decided to go down the brine route aka https://www.certifiedangusbeef.com/recipes/recipedetail.aspx?id=216 Made it up as per, and stuck in the fridge now waiting for Monday!
  14. Not new to the Forum, I am @Smokin Monkey but I have set up a new account as Dutchy, as I am going to be doing a lot more Dutch Oven and Cast Iron Cooking and want to keep the Low & Slow and Dutch Oven separate. Part of the Cast Iron Collection. Got this β€˜Garden Range’ on order,
  15. Got a lot of Cast Iron already, Have a larger Dutch Oven not shown in this photo. Got a cooking Table set up, also got a small tripod. I have a pulley arrangement set up above my Tandoor Oven that I can lower Dutch Oven into Tandoor.
  16. There's no stopping you now......... go for it. Ice.
  17. Yesterday
  18. It's not rocket science @sotv If you look closely the joints are shall we say...... rustic. It withstood several Devon gales over winter so robust as well. Have a go the fun is in the learning.... I'm going to have a go at welding again when I build my UDS..... not welded for 30 years so should be a laugh...🀣🀣
  19. Projects like that always make me look on enviously, with something like that, DIY isn't my forte. Got to put some picture hooks up tomorrow, expecting to bring half the wall down with me in doing so. πŸ˜€
  20. Look forward to it, post some links when set up please
  21. Going to ramp up the Dutch Oven and All Things Cast Iron Cooking. Looking to use the name Dutchy, and Blog under Dutchy.Cooking
  22. There's some work gone in to that... Good build NB
  23. Looks great, and satisfying that most of it was reclaimed.
  24. Mine so far..... added the base for a cob oven since this photo. 85% reclaimed so far.....
  25. Did a 6kg hand a few weeks back..... that went to 18hrs, stalled for 3, it was worth the wait though..... Pulled pork sliders were lush. It'll be worth it @Wilf
  26. cheers Wade, two other points i'd ask is why can't the charcoal basket have a larger diameter? and the middle section could do with brace to help it keep its shape. Seasoning with lumpwood now and hopefully the brickets will arrive tomorrow and I'll give it a should of pork as a starter .
