    New member, newish to BBQ

    Hi all from over the pond in the UK.

    Been grilling for a few years with my Weber Kettle and have solely taken my guide from the Weber book, but rarely been adventurous with my cooks. A leg of lamb, until recently, was my most daunting cook as opposed to the normal sausages, burgers and chicken breasts.

    I maybe doing my fellow countryfolk a massive injustice here (and no offence is meant to those UK members), but I think all would agree we are not renown for our grilling skills. I include myself in that wide sweeping statement, but amongst my friends I know only two that share my growing passion for all things BBQ.

    My wife bought me Meathead's "The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling" and I was recommended to buy a Slow and Sear and WOW, how those two items have changed my grilling!

    Managed pulled pork sandwiches about a month ago and last week it was Texas Short Ribs. Man I'm hooked.

    For this glorious weekend and to celebrate VE Day I am trying my first spatchcock chicken. (I pay tribute to all the veterans and the fallen heroes from all countries in all conflicts).

    Looking forward to learning and sharing ideas.

    I wish you all a great weekend.

                            Welcome from Colorado. I have to say that I’ve spent a LOT of time in England over the years ... not quite evenly divided between London and, strangely enough, Tetbury.

                            Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

                            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                            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.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                            Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                            3 burner gas grill

                            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                            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.
