  1. Smoked for 16 hours yesterday evening until this morning with Hickory. Now vac packed until Xmas.
  2. Thanks. It's a great recipe from Wade. Smells amazing.
  3. Just finished the curing. Ready to smoke it tonight! Smells absolutely lovely.
  4. So 3 1/2 to 4 on the dial?
  5. Started mine on Friday, you're right about it smelling like Christmas. After the two weeks curing period, should I leave it to air dry for a couple of days before smoking?
  6. Any tips on cold smoking nuts? Which type are best? How long etc?

    Do you have to roast them? Is there any reason why you can't just cold smoke them as they are?
  8. I saw this on meat heads site, they apparently use a blend of 'lesser' woods and add an oil to them to create the flavour. Here I was thinking pellets were the purest form of fuel. 😁
  9. For a quarter of the price, you wouldn't expect it to have all the features of one of the top named brands. It looks a good option if you want to hold the BBQ temp overnight, but still want to have more involvement in the cook. I get that a £300 controller can do the whole cook on auto pilot, but that's the same reason I'd never go for a pellet grill. I don't mind accessories that help, but where is the fun in clicking a button and doing nothing. May as well just eat in a restaurant. If I wasn't desperately tired and covered in charcoal when I eventually started eating 5 hours late, I'm in danger of realising my food doesn't taste that good.
  10. What do you think of this one? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F252226109850
  11. At that price it's worth a try
  12. I've also been looking, but can't justify the huge price of most controllers. They cost more than the actual smokers. This is looks much more reasonable. Bit hard to follow, but I gather you need to buy the fan and probes separately, so nearer €170 I guess
  13. Great idea. We also use it for nachos and put salsa in the middle. Obviously great for chicken too 😁
