TexasDave Posted April 24, 2021 Share Posted April 24, 2021 (edited) Howdy!! I am original from central Texas and moved to the UK in 2006. I also lived in Glasgow from 1997-98. We became dual UK / US citizens in 2012. I am in the Haslemere area southwest of London. I was really missing my central Texas BBQ (do make a road trip at some point for some awesome BBQ) so had to start doing my own. Like most folks in central Texas, I have tried all the best purveyors and pits in the area and used to enjoy traveling around with friends and family to try different offerings. I have two larger Weber Smoky Mountains that I have totally "pimped out". I cook for friends and family and frequently do decent size cooks for my Vets Football Team (soccer) that I play on. I also do some cooks for folks in the areaI have done several larger cooks for 80+ folks and even had Vanessa Redgrave compliment my brisket as I did a "sampler" in our village square with my local village butcher over Xmas a few years ago. I like to do large smokes once a month and then vacuum seal and freeze. I then use my sous vide to make dinner prep easy during the week. Besides the usual brisket, ribs and chicken I like to do gammon, lamb and pork roasts which when slice, frozen and sous vide are really nice during the week. I love seeing the passion the folks in the UK have for this type of cooking and have been impressed with the uptake here. I am also a "sous vide" user and will soon be picking up the new Gozny Dome to do pizza, meat and bread...And I have a Weber gasser that I use on a regualr basis for sausage, burgers, steaks, chops, chicken, etc. I dig cooking meat.... 🙂 Now if I could get decent TexMex and a margarita I would be in heaven 🙂 Thanks!!
