  1. This is my herb garden. I would like to get some wild garlic at some point, I think the smell would be amazing. The basil has been attacked by snails but is still holding out. My mint and marjoram had to be put in separate pots as they started growing insane.
  2. The mint is probably going to have to be in a separate pot. It looks great.

    Looks awesome. Made me hungry
  5. Thanks a lot. I’m glad it all turned out well, and proper chuffed with the length. I think I could have had another 3-4 hours on the set up I had.
  6. Yeah that was nice. It didn’t last 2 days in my house 😂
  7. That looks great mate. Nice one
  8. After working all weekend I decided to have an easy day in the garden, and what better job in the garden than cooking. I had a 5.5kg joint of gammon from a big shop just before Christmas and never got round to use it. I didn’t do much prep this time round, focussing mainly on the cook as it was the longest cook I have done in a while. This was the set up I had for the cook Once the kettle was lit and up to temp (215F 100C) I put the gammon on for 9 hours, glazing every 1.5 hours. The glaze was made from maple syrup and English mustard with a teaspoon of ground nutmeg, very basic I know, but wanted the practice before getting too adventurous. The cook took 9 hours in total, the meat was gorgeous. Nice and succulent. I’ve got enough for about 4 meals including lunches, so will definitely get some more.
  9. Always depends on how much money you want to spend. I use the Weber kettle, and it’s great for pretty much everything, and also a great place to start.
  10. How much and where did you get it?
  11. Hi Drew welcome to the group. My little one is 2 years 6 months and it was only from the beginning of this year that I was able to really get into the smoking, bless my boy but he didn’t like sleeping at night 😴😴.
  12. I used the Weber yesterday for a long cook (9 hours) and this is the set up I used. Would love to see how others set theirs up for long cooks.
