Hi folks, I'm from Birmingham, England and have just bought a smoker. I'm a smoker virgin! Smoking isn't that popular in the UK, most people just using a standard direct bbq, so we don't have that much available information as far as I know. So I'm looking forward to learning what I can from you guys. I'm totally new to smoking and yesterday the Proq Frontier (http://www.macsbbq.com/hot-smokers/proq-frontier-3-in-1-bbq-smoker) arrived, I did a dry run and only managed to get it up to 200. I think this may have been due to the Calor briquettes I used. So, I've invited friends over for a bbq on Sunday and now panicking that I may end up with undercooked food. They are all arriving from 3pm onwards. Would it be a little over ambitious to attempt the following : Chicken wings and/or a whole chicken A joint of either pork or beef Pork or beef ribs. I intend to prep everything on Saturday and have it in the smoker early on Sunday. I'd appreciate some advice on what time to start at and if cooking all the above would be okay? Thanks in advance for any replies.
