  1. Hi all. I've always been a huge fan of BBQ. Finally took the plunge and brought myself a smoker. Went for a cheap option to start just to see how I got on. Purchased a brinkmann gourmet. Done some research and found there not the best but gave it a go. So far I have smoked a pork shoulder and a beef brisket with good results. Hopefully I can get lots of recipes and ideas form this forum.

    Hi Ben(?) and welcome to the UK forum. I have just welcomed Robin who is close to you and at the risk of simply repeating the advice to him please take a look

    Your brisket and pork look good [​IMG]. The more you do the easier it will become. Don't be afraid to vary things a little with each smoke in order to develop the style that works for you. When you do though be sure to write down the details of every smoke so that next time you know what worked and what did not.

    A lot of people on here use Brinkmann smokers. With a couple of simple mods to help with the temperature control you will be able to continue to smoke good food but will less constant tending and temperature adjusting.

    If you have not done so already, invest in a Maverick ET-732/733 and this will really help you to get reproducible results.

    Just a quick reminder. As you know we do like photos on here and as I see you have mastered the way to upload them you have no excuse not to post more LOL
