  1. Hi to all,

    Very much the beginner here - about 3 summers in (the UK doesn't lend itself to year round outdoor cooking)

    Rolling with a 22" Weber Original right now but (fingers crossed) am just about to get going on a reverse flow build with local welder/fabricator and have my eye on a 150 gallon compressor tank.

    Uh....and that's it! Will get a thread up when I get the ball rolling on the build to get some input/insight into my design and might even post later today- if my brisket comes out good!

    Welcome to the board! Look under the Groups tab, there's a UK Smokers group you might want to join.
  3. [​IMG]   Good morning and welcome to the forum, from a nice warm day here in East Texas. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

  4. Cheers for the heads up re. groups Blue, appreciated!
  5. Welcome to the group. Air compressor tanks work great for smokers. I used one myself last year for a reverse offset and love the way it works. Cooked many slabs of ribs, couple hams, and few whole chickens. First big cook after build was a 100 pound pig that was great. Getting ready to do another pig this June. Good luck on the build and keep smoking.
  6. Glad you joined the group. The search bar at the top of any page is your best friend.

    Hi Toro - Welcome to the forum. There are a growing number of us on here from all over the UK as well as dome deported US nationals too. The Weber 22" is a great smoker to start with and I still use mine most weekends. The forum is for all levels of expertise - from aspiring novices to US circuit champions  - and so please pitch in at whatever level you feel you can provide insight to others or if there are any questions that you may need asking. We are not just a forum for hot smoking but there are a large number of us that also do cold smoking and curing too.

    The reverse flow project will be a fun build I think and you will find a lot of design ideas and build calculations on here. I hope the brisket came out OK - don't forget that we love pictures on here.

    If you find yourself in the area of Lincoln in late July then please feel free to pop in to the UK meeting of the SMF-UK group. Just fun cooking, good company and some beer. It would be great to see you.
