  1. 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?
  3. 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. 😁
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. At that price it's worth a try
  7. 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
  8. Great idea. We also use it for nachos and put salsa in the middle. Obviously great for chicken too 😁
  9. I bought one for around £30 a few years ago. Absolutely love it. So versatile. Grabbed yourself a bargain there!
  10. Marathon Bars were actually originally called snickers, as they were named after one of the owners pets. They changed its name to marathon to market it as a healthier snack. That's an answer to the question you didn't ask 😂
  11. Love there lumpwood. My local garden centre stocks it. Noticed their sale online, but £20 delivery if you order under £150 ruled it out for me.
  12. They had botulism. 😁
  13. Picked up a Kadai a couple of weeks ago too. They're great fun.
