    hi guys new to smoking looking for my first smoker got a offset one but not that good was wondering which would be a good one im from uk
  2. Hello Paul.  Don't yet throw the baby out with the bath water.  What smoker do you have?  Maybe we can fix it.  An offset can be a bear with a sore head to deal with but I have used one for years.  They can be sorted.  Let's talk.  What are your issues?  Keep Smokin!

    hi mate it leaks smoke and finding it really hard to control  the temp going keep it and try when my thermometer and other goodies come will let you know how it goes
  4. Hello.  Some high temp silicone should seal those leaks.

    Hi there

    Welcome to the group

    Can I make a suggestion - try this method if you have a slow cooker ....

    It's easy to get disillusioned with this smoking lark when you are new to it and this way you only need to smoke for 3 hours and the pulled pork is more "forgiving" than say Ribs as even if the temp goes a little high it's not going to burn them to a frazell,,,,

    Really worth a go - it's the way I do Pulled Pork and it works for me

    Good luck

  7. Hello Paul.  I hope I sent you the mods for that offset, if I haven't please let me know.  You might look at the link below.  Now I haven't ordered mine yet and it is a little pricey when you add the shipping but the members swear by it.  I have seen it working and it is a fine product.  You could add a mailbox mod to that smoker and you're off and running.  Keep Smokin!
