  1. Not sure about sycamore but steer clear of pine. General rule of thumb is anything hard, oak, beech, birch, most (if not all) fruit woods.
  2. You could try YNNI kamado, they have a number of different size kamados and sell various accessories for each one. Or ProQ smokers - https://proqsmokers.co.uk/products/proq-plancha?variant=30950689701962 Good luck.
  3. I’d imagine any of the popular controllers on the market would fit and work with the relevant adapter plate.
  4. Char-Broil Kamander for sale on Amazon, great price for a rock solid Kamado style grill. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Char-Broil-Grill-Kamander-Kamado/dp/B07D8WTQWB/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=bbq&psr=EY17&qid=1606136823&rnid=161428031&s=black-friday&sr=1-13
  5. With a smoker box or pellet tube. I just made a smoker box out of an old tobacco tin, works perfectly.
  6. You could always try smoking something on the gas grill before you dive in.
  7. hi James, I can recommend https://prosmokebbq.co.uk - I've only bought a couple of things from them but also follow on Instagram. They have some excellent deals on the Masterbuilt and other items and seems approachable and happy to make deals etc Good luck!
  8. Most if not all fruit woods are good for smoking, it will need to be seasoned and bark can be left on.
  9. If you decide to go this route, get a "friend" to register on Thermapen site. They can then send you a referral for which you will get 20% off any purchase the "friend" will then receive 10% commission of the purchase. Brings the Signals & Billows in at under £200
  10. I just picked up a Thermoworks Signals with Billows attachment, has bluetooth and wifi and fitting it to my Char Broil Kamander was a doddle. There's definitely a learning curve involved but no more than learning to control with the vents in the first place.
  11. Just had a brisket point end from Turner & George, was superb. Couple of little onglet steaks too for the freezer.
  12. I'm on bag No.2 of this stuff and it is brilliant. Lovely big chunks, easy to light, clean burning and great smokey flavour. Cooked for over 8 hours on Saturday and hardly used any fuel. Very impressed.
  13. I have a Callow upright smoker for sale, only used a handful of times. Covered and stored indoors when not in use. Collection only from Reading. £40
