    She's a beaut'! Even if the yanks couldn't get their head around Gril being spelt with one L 😁

    Welcome Nige! Did I see your UDS on one of the smoking Sub Reddits a few weeks ago?
  3. Excellent timing, I'm thinking about ordering one of the Excel 20 versions of these: https://www.macsbbq.com/accessories/proq-plancha The Excel 20 is sized at 50cm, would there be any reason why it would work with say a 57cm Weber Kettle?
  4. Delivery arrived. Only opened one bag so far.... Won't know until I delve deeper but it looks like small chunks.
  5. She's a beaut' don't let anyone else tell you different 😎 You should only need another 1-2 inlets to get it up to where you need for hot and fast stuff.
  6. Fantastic thanks for the heads up. Just ordered 4 bags to see me through to next year. The last lot of CPL restaurant grade I've got left over is getting dumped at the tip. It was absolutely crap 👎
  7. Me too. Swore by it for years, especially in my UDS but this new stuff is like a bag of hollow gravel! Thanks Dave I'll check that out.
  8. Yep that should work just bear in mind it needs to be a good seal. I use food grade tubs my missus gets her cake icing delivered in. Pellets left in the hopper are fine. They'll get burnt off first during the warm up cycle. If your feeder has the same facility as mine then you can prime the pot with a button, which continually feeds the pellets so you can flush the hopper through. Granted though mine doesn't get left outside for long periods but it is covered.
  9. Excellent they're really good on price. Tip for storage by the way. Use sealed plastic containers to store any opened bags. Pellets will expand if any moisture is present and it severely effects their efficiency when you come to use them. I decant my pellets into plastic buckets with sealed lids. Get roughly 2 buckets to a bag.
  10. Good stuff! How much did you get the pellets for?
  11. Yeah worth stocking up and throwing a few in the freezer. Haven't tried them for a Brisket or shoulder yet but I'm aiming to do a BBQ for the other half next month so I'll give them a go.
  12. Popped in to Bexley's Butchers in Old Swan and got talking to the butcher to see if they could source larger cuts for me - stuff like packer briskets and whole shoulders - which I've been ordering from Tom Hixson and Turner and George, or going down to the abatoir on Prescot Road at silly o'clock in the morning to get. After a good chat it turns out they supply a few of the restaurants in Liverpool, including Simon Rimmer's gaff in Wootlon. Anyway they can get their hands on Jacobs ladder so I ordered a slab. Came in at £13 and they were were too notch.
  13. It's a Yoder Jacket for the YS640. I had a trip to the US a couple of months back and smuggled it back in my hold luggage (the jacket not the smoker 😄) But a welding blanket would do the job nicely. Just needs to go over the main chamber surface. Your LG900 looks easy to adapt it with a single panel and some U shaped clips under the lid.
  14. Yep Lil Devils from Liverpool Wood Pellets. Last lot I got worked out £5 bag. Go down and collect, just call first to see if they've got stock in and mention you'll pay cash. I get roughly 20hrs cooking per bag (added an insulating jacket so it's more efficient). In all honesty I've tried Treager and Cookshack and there was little difference to Lil Devils. If I need an extra boost I just use a pellet tube and BBQ'ers delight flavoured pellets. Works it much, much cheaper. Will give the pork belly method a go caramelised anything is full of win 💪
  15. Has anyone had anything from them recently? Picked up a 2 X 12kg bags last month (from cpl via eBay) but only got around to using it this week. Bugger me it's terrible.... Small chunks and they feel overly light and not very dense - candy floss like. Cooking with a full chimney worth on the Weber Kettle nets about 30 mins cooking time before it wastes away, the heat drops dramatically and I need to add more. Cooked a spatchcocked chicken on Thursday and had to add 3 loads..... Last good bag I had would burn steadily for at least 2 hours and had chunks the size of a babies head!
