  1. There you go @Smokin Monkey AK 2019...
  2. As suggested by @Smokin Monkey I'll start the ball rolling... I didn't get my weekend logistics sorted for my first low and slow, so sticking with the kebabs. Chicken Tikka and Paneer/vegetables all served up on fresh salad and coriander dressing. Really enjoying my weekend wander to the green grocers to see what colourful madness he has in. This week, bright yellow toms and courgettes. I tend to use thigh, but only had breast fillets in the freezer so really happy they weren't dry. Sadly can't recommend the Rockwell Skewer support (B&Q), spot weld has failed. It feels cheap, was cheap, is cheap. To be returned.
  3. So here's the chicken. I followed a recipe from the Pitt Cue recipe book. House rub mixed with chipotle paste, butter and roasted garlic paste. Had to substitute the chipotle for harissa as popping down the shops wasnt an option. Sadly I was low on charcoal so couldn't get the temp up to crisp it all up towards the end. Cooked and 150 for probably 90 minutes, 75 degrees on the probe. It was juicy and the flesh was turning pinkish with the smoking. Definitely more hot smoked than roasted. The left overs crisped up nicely in the oven the next day. First big lump off the grill, and I'll take that! Pulled pork this weekend...
  4. Played with mine this weekend following a quick call to Aldi to get a £50 refund. So far I've cooked lamb adana, vegetables and flat breads and roasted a chicken on Sunday. Really happy with the results. I'm not at the set and forget stage but control hasn't been too tricky. Just remember to remove the deflector when cranking it up..... live and learn, doh!
  5. Turned up yesterday, rushed home with a mixture of excitement/trepidation. 'Just' the two marks from what I can see. The worst being above the ash box opening. Looks very much like @MarkG pic. Back to customer services I go! Thanks for all the updates, handy to know what positions have been agreed. I'll let you know how I get on.
  6. Hello @JonC. Out of interest where is your Charcoal supplier located? I see you're West Kent, I'm Eastbourne so potentially interested if the distance isn't too far. Many thanks.
  7. Just waiting on delivery myself from Aldi...twiddles thumbs, paces up and down, checks tracking details (again)....
  8. Excellent, thank you from another interested party!

    Eastbourne here...

    Thanks all for the kind welcome and info @Smokin Monkey
  10. Evening all; Stumbled across the forum whilst looking for opinions on 'THAT' Aldi special buy... I've had my heart set on a Kamado for a while and want to integrate one into a garden kitchen build soon. To date I've only cold smoked fish and bacon (DIY OSB cupboard and ProQ smoker) so keen to get into some low and slow. Strangely I think I may have followed Wade's guide off an old website on cold smoking fish some years ago, but can't be sure. I'm also enjoying middle eastern food at the moment so keen to get away from the kitchen grill and over some embers! So basically I'm here for hints/tips/recipes and I'll share some pics of my successes and failures along the way! Cheers
