  1. Had a crack at this today in the ProQ. It's actually a Tom Kerridge recipe that we have done many times before in the oven, put I thought i'd try it on the smoker with apple wood. Gave it 4 hours at 230F & then another 2 hours at 275F. The lamb was well done, although I like my lamb medium. That said, it was very tender & juicy. I had to put the boulangère potatos in the grill for 15 minutes just to finish them off to get the ones on top to crisp up. https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/slow_cooked_lamb_26033 Cheers n Gone Nick

    Hello to all

    Welcome Paul, A mass of knowledge across many aspects of BBQ & Smoking from the members here. I'm sure like me you will find it a great place to hang out. I look forwards to seeing plenty of pictures as your knowledge & experience grows. Cheers n Gone Nick
  5. I gave into the persistent requests from my lad & knocked up some of the Mac n Cheese stuffed meatballs from the Macs BBQ recipe page. They are always a favourite in our house. On this occasion though I supersized them with large macaroni, a blend of cheeses Cheddar, Gruyere, Edam, Ilchester Mexicana & Shropshire Blue. They were more tennis ball size than golf ball. I was pleased with the outcome, I think the fact they were larger helped prevent the cheese from drying out when smoked. I found the smaller balls would lose some of the creaminess of the cheese. https://www.macsbbq.com/recipes/macncheese_meatballs Cheese n Gone Nick
  6. Whilst trawling the bay I came across this offer which seems to be a good deal a Bradley 2 rack compact smoker for £89.99. I don't have one myself......yet. But i'm tempted! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bradley-2-Rack-Convection-Smoker/174078984240?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D08015381e51b4760823eb6b1eac5e23b%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D174078984240%26itm%3D174078984240%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507 There is an independent review here https://www.theblackpeppercorn.com/2013/08/bradley-2-rack-smoker-product-review/ Might be of interest to someone Cheers N Gone Nick

    Thanks for the reply hoogl I do t want to put the smoker in the store unless I have to as it so big! The tarp under the cover keeps it dry for now until I establish if its a leaking cover or condensation build up. I'll then have to come up with a plan B Cheers n Gone Nick

    Guys, I'm after some advise. I'm having a real problem keeping my 22" Razzo dry. I bought a Fornetto Airpro cover but thought the fabric was wicking water through, after a fair amount of rain I was getting a pool of water in the bowl. It appears the water would wick in through the top of the cover seep down the side to the joint on the first stacker & then run down the inside & gather in the bowl. I mentioned this to Gareth & they sent a replacement cover, however the same thing occurs. I've also treated the first cover with Nikwax tent & gear solarproof but no real difference. I've also checked the welts on the seams. I'm now wondering if the water is actually condensation gathering & not water leaking through. However the material on the Airpro cover is supposed to be breathable. It doesn't' seem right as i am having to keep the Razzo dry by placing a tarp sheet over it with the cover on top which isn't great for a cover that cost me £70 quid to source from Australia once i'd paid the duty & taxes! Any thoughts or similar experiences? I'm think of getting bespoke cover made up as stock covers for a 57cm bullet don't seem to exist but a bespoke one is the best part of £75. The pictures below are from this morning after light rainfall over night. & a low temperature of 5degC. The water pictured on the cover is from the inside. Cheers n Gone Nick
  10. I always find when using the DigiQ or Party that it's hard to get an even burn with charcoal in the Razzo or ProQ. The forced air always encourages the charcoal to burn nearest the inlet with the fan. As the other two vents are shut, a balanced burn seems difficult to achieve (for me at least) I therefore have to load the fire basket accordingly Cheers n Gone Nick
  11. As the title, Landmann Kettle BBQ £30 C+C @ Argos. Also on Amazon but with a longer lead time. Was £99. Not sure on the quality as I don't own one, but seems a decent price for a branded Kettle BBQ https://www.argos.co.uk/product/7649237 Cheers N Gone Nick
  12. I've been using the Green Olive 15Kg Premium lumpwood rather than the Longburn Lumpwood & found it to be ok for my use. I do wonder if the smaller bags have smaller lumps on purpose for the beach BBQ'er rather than for larger smoker / BBQ'er to use? I guess there is probably a reason they have discontinued these 10Kg bags & wonder if it's because large bags of small pieces of lumpwood doesn't have the demand from the target audience of the beach BBQist? The smaller bags are listed as a mix of dense hardwood. The Premium Lumpwood is quite dense stuff, so less prone to breaking up in transit. It's described as 100% She-Oak whatever that is https://www.wood-database.com/sheoak/ Cheers n Gone Nick
  13. I use my ProQ 18" Plancha on my 22" Fornetto with no issue, just a case of ensuring the heat source is directly under the plancha really Cheers n Gone Nick
  14. Is this code still active? Not working for me. Does it apply to discounted items as well as full price? Cheers n Gone Nick
