    Hi All,

    My name is Gaz and I live in Glossop - between Manchester & Sheffield. 

    My bbq story started when I spent time in South Africa and learnt to braai. Following a couple of trips to the US, I started smoking and experimenting with larger pieces of meat. 

    Firmly believe that the skill of the griller is more important than the kit used (that and the fact that the Mrs would go mental if I spent a fortune!). I have an old weber kettle and a basic barrell bbq. 

    I love playing around with new recipes and flavours. Still very much learning. 

    Last year I entered a local competition at our local rugby club and managed to win. It is approaching again this year so looking to gain some tips, advice and recipe ideas. 

    Look forward to getting involved on here.

    Hiya Gaz, Welcome to the forum.

    There are some fantastic people on here with some great experience. I am also from the UK and am one of the Group Leads for the UK Smokers along with Smokin Monkey, Wade and KC5TPY (Danny to us). who have already introduced themselves

    As smoking has gained popularity in the UK we have been given our own group, "UK Smokers". We still come under the watchful eye of the main forum and have plenty of support from our american cousins, but somethings are different in the UK and that's where the UK forum comes into it's own. The UK Smokers is rapidly growing with members from up and down the country with a wealth of experience in all areas.

    We have an annual Smoking Weekend which is held in the summer ( sorry you have just missed it this year) and we are currently trying to arrange a date for next year. It is held on a camp site near Lincoln so it is easy for everyone from the north & south to attend. Most of the active members attend, and cook a dish, have a chat, exchange ideas, pick up tips from other members, grab a few beers and have a great weekend. You are more than welcome to join us next year.

    We have members from both sides of the pond so it you post a question in the UK Forum, there is a good chance it will get answered from both the UK and the US.

    If you click on the following link this will take you to the UK section of the forum where you will find a group of like minded individuals in the UK who are into smoking.

    If you click on this link it will take you to the roll call where you can introduce yourself:

    I look forward to seeing you there, and feel free to post on the UK forum.
  4. [​IMG]   Good morning and welcome to the forum, from another hot, day in East Texas and the best site on the web. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

  5. Welcome from the coast of South Carolina. My sons are huge Manchester fans so they were petty excited when I told them I saw someone from Manchester was the forum. Look forward to seeing a different way of grilling/smoking from your experiences.

    Smell Smoke.
