  1. It's a shame they couldn't get it out before BBQ chump. If they were filming with smoking greats like yourself then I'm sure it would of been a fantastic show.

    I wonder how long it will be before my post gets edited out

    "Wade Nash  Not ITV's finest hour but it is early days yet. I hope that the series matures as it goes on. Neither of the judges are dynamic enough to help support the program format. Anyone seriously interested in BBQ should not be deterred though. You can find plenty of good BBQ information on Smokingmeatforums.com"
     

  5. Just in case it does not get edited/deleted, might be an idea to change the link so it points to the UK group?

    Didn't rate it at all. The "typical" contest show format that they peddle out for every single programme on TV now is so worn out, it's an insult to the viewing public. Long pauses on the outcomes for dramatic effect, making every decision seem life or death. Why couldn't they give the participants (don't want to use the word contestant as that implies having some ability) a bit more time to produce items that would inspire and showcase some decent Q ? 

    I must admit I did fast forward through swathes of it especially when told to do a "signature" dish and then say "I've never actually cooked this before" Hmmm, inability to process simple instructions, I would have sent him and the raw chicken guy back to BBQ 101.

    Will I watch it again ? Not sure, it's only slightly less pleasurable than having root canal work done.

    Well I'm off to go back to my fence sitting.

    Just wondering if it may be a little staged????

    You know like a Rocky film, he gets battered half to death and then wins the final. Just a thought but watch our Emma (bunch of Swines BBQ Team) and the Cowboy (Ciderpig - Hammer and Tongs BBQ team) get to the finals??????
     
  8. Hello.  Just looked at the Facebook page.  Who is this "cowboy" character?  The guy with the long hair, wearing the silly hat??   "Cowboy"??   I'll bet that boy isn't even sure which end of a horse eats.  Can we please refer to him as the guy with the silly hat?  Thank you.  [​IMG]

    Are you guys serious?  They gave them 45 min. to prepare and present a dish?  Were the BBQ's up to temp.?  Surely they didn't have to start the briquettes, bring the grill up to temp and cook the dish in that time.  I would struggle to GRILL a surf and turf in that time!  Medium rare ribeye and lobster tail or tiger prawns.  I doubt I could pull it off 1% of the time.  Not that I am a grill wizard, far from it but THAT is almost impossible even with equipment I am familiar with!  JEEZ!  Just grilling sardines would be a CHALLENGE!  I gotta watch this at least once.  If this is the case; glad you didn't go there Wade!  Keep Smokin!

    He and Emma are both members of the BBBQS and both actually have a good reputation in the UK competition BBQ circuit. The program cannot be doing much for their credibility so far - but you never know, either may go on to win it...

    I am trying to think of something to write, in reply to Brian's post about these people, but, well what can I say. Are these the best we have? most of them have never seen a big joint of meat or burst into tears when the pressure is on. Both members of BBQ teams? I know their is pressure cooking in front of those cameras, but surley they did not have their brains removed, 2kg rib beef, 10 minutes a side? Shit an oxygen mask and a defibrillator and it would of been eating grass and producing methane!
     
  13. OK.  So you are telling me these are members of a  competition BBQ team.  The BEST! here in the U.K.?  Maybe I don't need to watch this.  I don't have a Facebook account.  Hammer their Facebook page with links to us; the U.K. Group.  Let folks know we are more than willing to help folks grill and smoke properly.  NO raw foods.  Easy peasy!  A 2kg. beef rib at 10 minutes a side?  I have tears in my eyes from laughing!  This is our chance to reach folks.  I am too dumb to learn how to use Facebook in that time so you guys who have an account;  GET AFTER IT!  PLEASE!  Be respectful but offer to help the average public learn how to do it properly.  Don't trash the show.  They will delete the post.  Engage in the discussions.  Start discussions.  Then mention our Group and what we are about.

    If those are the best BBBQS has to offer it's a good thing we stay out of their competitions!  Although to be fair, those were some SERIOUS restrictions!  But when asked to cook your signature dish; why would you try something new???  GO FOR IT GUYS!  Keep Smokin!

  14. All hail Danny Castro lol. We the smoking people shall rise up and take down the raw meat, fish planking establishment. 😬💪🏻
     
  15. Hi Bob.  Not sure how to take your comment.  Just a dumb redneck from Texas.  No matter how you meant that; I really don't have any feelings so my feelings can not be hurt even if you try. ( which I am not saying you did )  [​IMG]   ABSOLUTELY! RISE UP!  REVOLUTION!  What a GREAT opportunity to reach the British public ON THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE!  It is about attracting new  members Bob.  Spreading the word.  From what I hear they are making fools of the contestants.  So what does Joe Blow public get from the program?  BBQing that stuff is REALLY hard to do!  Is it?  Could we help them through it?  Could you help them through it?  OF COURSE!  Get the passion brother!  NO MORE RAW CHICKEN LEGS!  EVER!  We can do this!  I know you are with us.  You got skills to pass on!  C'mere!  Give me a big ole sloppy wet kiss!  [​IMG]   DON'T YOU DARE MAKE A MOVE!!!!!!  May have to find my gun if you do.  Have fun buddy.  GREAT opportunity for the Group!  Keep Smokin!

  16. was not very good to say the least, dont think i will be watching it again, and to read on here that a couple are "pro" bbq'ers, well that sums it up for me, i'll never buy from an outside caterer again.

    kc.
     
  17. Danny I'm speechless. That was an epic speech buddy. 😀👍
     
  18. [​IMG]   POWER TO THA PEOPLE!  Grab the passion brother!  [​IMG]

    Bob.  Ya gotta come next year!  You will fit right in.  Have fun.  Keep Smokin!

    It's quite funny, because I could not remember my log in for BBBQS, so re-registered. It has put me down as "Still Raw In The Middle" quite apt for some of its members that are on the Show!!!!
