pulled pork

Yeah I have a temp controller, I just used applewood for smoking but the smoke was really subtle. Will use more next time to bring more smokey flavour to it. Apart from that i was quite pleased with the result😀.

Pictures dont look as good as your lamb though👍😋

Oh I don't know looks good to me.

I ve got to say though once I got my flame boss my cooks have improved 100% second best thing I bough after the Egg. I've not done a brisket yet but I would be confident of it turning out well wile using the controller. Also it's a big piece of meat to cook on lock down for four😁

haha yes, beef butties all week for everyone!

I want to try beef brisket one day....but I dont want to end up with shoe leather🤔 

The temp controllers are a great bit of kit, opens up the option for overnight cooks which I love doing 🙂

Pulled pork looking good there @AdamG! I was planning on brisket for a first kamado cook but based on the post above it sounds like that might be a bit ambitious?! Done my reading etc but no substitute for xp!

Might be worth going for a bit of pork belly then I guess if there's a big risk of the brisket turning out bad... looking at £60 for the beef I was going to buy so might be better off with an easier cook to start with 🤔

Ambitious for me! but you might be fine for your first cook👍

I read somewhere that you ideally need to get your temp control really good and figure out your own grills habits before attempting it....i took that advice and now i feel ready to take on the challenge😁

As :yeahthat:  it’s very ambitious if you have not cooked anything on it yet and mastered the temperature control.

I know, it’s like a kid in a sweet shop, but it is really important to get to know how it operates, before diving straight in. You see lots of people buying kit going in head first, ruining £££’s of meat then giving up! 
 

There is a Saying KISS (keep it simple stupid) I would go as I recommend to everyone with a Chicken, a few quid is not the end of the world if it doesn’t turn out good.

some great advice.....but now you got me thinking...."am I really ready?!?"🤔 

Never done one so I dont fully understand just how hard it is👍

Cheers guys, really appreciate the steers! Looks like chicken for a first go then, hopefully with all this lockdown biz I should be able to get my cooks in pretty regularly (read as: every day 😂)

Is it worth getting one of those ceramic chicken stand things? I've read that spatchcock is the best way to go for a chicken, never done that before but doesn't sound difficult!

Just spotted there's a home brew forum on here too... planning to bottle some homemade cider this evening, my first batch using fresh cold-pressed Russet apple juice instead of AJ from concentrate - will post up some pics if I remember 🍏🥃
