    Hello to everyone from across the pond

    Hi I'm Jason from the UK, I am looking forward to learning and improving my cooking skills and share ideas. I have a Weber Master Touch which I have owned since 2004. Also a picnic BBQ and a pizza oven. Recently I have been trying to improve my smoking and I tried a set up when I cooked a brisket which you can see in the picture, it worked really well and produced a very tender juicey meat. Water trays underneath the meat, one above the coals with apple juice and water and foil shielding the meat from direct heat. Click image for larger version

                I have had mine for awhile now, not sure what the difference is between the old and new versions. I have what they are calling the deluxe gold edition with the SS drip n griddle without the rack. I like the DNG, but you can get by with an aluminum drip pan. The DNG is a little pricey now.

              Thanks for a warm welcome everyone

                      Thank you, it worked really well. 11lb brisket hit 150f and stalled @ 3hours in. Left in stall until 4 hours and wrapped. Finished cooking in just under 8hrs and turning brisket around every hour or so.

                      Don't know if the link will work but it is the data from the brisket cook.

                            Haha thanks. I think they are called bernzomatic in America with a map gas bottle. I'm a heating engineer by trade so one of the tools I use.

                        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.

Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                        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.
