    Hiya all,

    Had a cheapo gas grill until this week when I took delivery of the Landmann Tennesee smoker. Going to try pulled pork then maybe some beef brisket so just checking out the website to pick up some hints and tips.

    See ya all around.

    Welcome to the site Colin. Glad you could join the growing band from this side of the pond. Don't be afraid to ask anything - and don't hold back from sharing your experiences with the group.

    Thanks for the welcome. There's so much information on this website its a major decision what to try first. Just done the initial burn in on the smoker tonight, and as it was going so well I chucked some sausages on after a few hours. Had some comments from the neighbors along the lines of what nutter is having a BBQ in February :)

    Sausages are great from the smoker. The problem with cooking them low is that the natural skins can go quite hard as they are not being fried. If that happens (and it depends on the skins) just slit them and take them off before serving.

    You get the same response from the DIY superstores when you try to buy charcoal from October to March - "We don't stock it as nobody BBQs in the winter". They should get a life! ... or is it the other way round... [​IMG]

    Hiya Gary.

    Your not kidding about how much information is on this site. I cant wait to do the pulled pork as I've had it a few times and love it. Its very hard to come by over here in Britain, which is a shame.

    How long have you been grilling/smoking ?

    Hi Colin,

    I am actually from Essex as well. I used to have a Landmann Tennesse as well, really enjoyed using that, really fun cooker.

    I found Pork Butt was a good starting point on there, you can pick up shoulders in Tesco for about £8 great piece of meat to master your cooker :)
