    Hello from Kent, England

    Hi, im Joe from Kent in England. Not the greatest of BBQ climates but I don't let that bother me. Currently grilling on a Weber MasterTouch, a WSM and a Weber Smokey Joe for those camping holidays. Got in to BBQ a few years ago, brought a cheap crappy grill but homed my skills and found the joy that could be had. Upgraded to a WSM and then the kettle. Been using amazingribs for most of my hints and tips, I call this site "my online bbq bible" and for most cooks this is the first place I come, even if its just a refresher on setting up. I didn't realise I could join this with being from the UK, so I sent the email asking the question and well here I am. Generally do the "normal" stuff, ribs, brisket, pulled pork, steaks, sausages. Basically anything with meat. Love the long smokes, sat outside me,myself and the smoker. I'm at peace out there and get to completely relax. Just got the Weber pizza oven for the kettle and hoping to get the rotisserie soon.

    Looking forward to meeting some new people and learning more and hopefully sharing some of the things I have learnt.

    Happy grilling folks

    Welcome to the Pit PitJedJoe




        Welcome Aboard Joe


          thanks guys


            hi PJ!


              ​Welcome to The Pit PitJediJoe! Greetings from over the waters, glad to have you here! I like those times when I can sit out there by the smoker and chill, with a beverage in hand....but those times are rare. I usually have to mow or something while outside

              Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

              Hope to hear & see more from you!


                Welcome, always interesting to see food from around the world. Fzxdoc just got back from London I believe and shared some stuff with us. My knowledge of the area is from:
                • EDIT: Forgot #1 which is Shaun of the Dead
                • Top Gear
                • Sherlock
                • The IT Crowd
                Oh and I've watched a bunch of Heston video's on Youtube, I need to get a river to deliver boats of people to my BBQs.


                  Welcome and may the force be with you.


                    Hi guys, thank you for the welcome. Good to be here. Huskee, its a very rare chance I get to do it myself. Its always raining so it just means iv got to duck and cover but still got a beer in hand :-)
                    John, you've been watching one of the strangest tv chefs we have over here. The man is a mad scientist when it comes to food. Keep watching though you will see some crazy stuff. Shaun of the dead, classic zombie movie. Top Gear, I love cars but not that program.
                    Iv posted a few pics already of recent smokes but as I work offshore Im away from home at the moment and won't be back until July, so as usual I'm spending my free time on here studying and deciding what to do next.

                    Thanks for the inspiration!

                    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. 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’.

                    Our Favorite Backyard 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.

                    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.
