Hi from West Midlands


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm from the West Midlands and just bought my first smoker (Landmann Kentucky) . Found some fantastic information on here and tons of videos on YouTube!


There is some information I'm a tad confused on...I know I need to use kiln dried logs but does this need to be the flavoured wood i.e. pecan, ash etc? Are these in addition to flavoured wood chips?

Hi General,  as for the wood just stick with some hardwood to start off with,  get a good fire going then you can add whatever chips you want.  Don't worry too much about it, there's a site about what wood gives off what flavour if I can find it I'll post it.

Hi General85, I'm also in the West Mids :)

Here's a good link to building and maintaining a fire in an offset that someone else posted in another thread recently

Don't use softwoods! Only the hard stuff as Ice says ;)

Thanks. Very useful video. Just need to find some wood chunks now! :)
