    Newbie - York UK

    Hello all,

    Though I'd say hello. Have taken advantage of the free trial. I've used the free site recipes for years so hopefully 'paid' is worth it and I'll become a long term member.

    Had some changes at home so am hoping with a fresh start I can reignite my love for BBQ

    First got into Q in 2012 with a 57cm Weber kettle. Since then I've acquired a old model Pro Q and a Q3200 series gas Weber.

    Not really interested in kitchen cooking but hopefully that will change. I've done a variety of things on the BBQ from classic ribs. Hot and cold smoking to puddings.

    I've attended the Weber Grill academy and did Grillstock three times before it all went down the pan.

    Unfortunately in the UK all the BBQ interest seems to be in the South. Very little in the Northern half of the country so difficult to get together with other fans at festivals or events.

    Hopefully I'll find some ideas on here.

    BBQing this weekend

    Cheers

    Rick

                          Welcome to the pit! Glad to have you, whereabouts in the UK are you? I've been working a few years in London, but have good friends 40 minutes east of Manchester. And we visit the lake district every year.

                          Since you’re new, and if you haven't already done so, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

                          Also, it's very important that you:

                          Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. You currently cannot change your email on file with us since it’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe. Don’t worry though, you can change it by simply visiting https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/pi...il-request.php

                          Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner, which is open to all paying USA members or those with a USA delivery address (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!

                          Thanks for joining!

                              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                              slow n sear
                              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                              the good one grill
                              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                              Grilla pellet smoker
                              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                              kareubequ bbq smoker

                              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
