New smoker in the UK

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by stevellion, Mar 25, 2014.

  1. Well, it's been raining all winter and I hardly had a chance to get outside so far this year, but now got my self a Brinkmann Trailmaster LE.

    Previously, I had a brick built (my own bad handywork) BBQ with a slotted in 4 wide gas BBQ/Grill.  Left side open grill with lava rocks, right side flat grill.

    The weekend before last I had my last gas BBQ, then smashed up the brick barbie and hauled the bricks away.

    This weekend just gone, I built and then cured in my TMLE - ready for some smoking in the months to come this year.

    I'm also kicking myself for throwing away that old grill plate as it would have been perfect as a heat deflector.

    some mods to come, but my next few weekends are booked up and these things need time.

    (Something I might miss from the Gas Barbie, being able to just go turn on and start cooking in a few mins)

    I hope the chimney starter I just picked up will mean I could potentially use the firebox grill side if an urgent burger is needed sometime.

    Nice to meet y'all.

    Steve, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom.
