    Welcome to the group JJ.

    The appropriate handling of food - especially when dealing with the long cooking and relatively low temperatures that we often do on here - is very important. There are several of us on here with experience of, and have qualifications in food safety - so as JJ says please make use of us whenever you are unsure of something that you are trying to do. Although good, safe, food handling is mostly about common sense special care does need to be taken to minimise any problems arising from bacterial growth over long periods of preparation.

    Keep smoking - but keep smoking safely, and remember HACCP rules - OK [​IMG]
     
  3. Many thanks for the invite Danny, I have been using a drum barbecue and had some good results with slow cooks so decided to order a smoker. My brinkmann should arrive Wednesday. I have been a chef for 25 years so looking forward to combining my skills with the "art" of the smoker. Hopefully I can bring something to the group.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, I appreciate it.  I have a brinkmann special Edition and have been smoking for a couple of years and enjoy Hot & Cold Smoking, depending on the weather, but I really enjoy plank cooking. My smoking skills are just a bit better than my computer skills, so bear with me.

  8. Hello and Welcome to the family.  We are an informal Group.  We usually don't mind folks hijacking a thread now and then and we usually don't shy away from taking tha piss quite often.  Don't be surprised if it comes your way.  Just give as good as you get and you'll fit right in.  [​IMG]   Great bunch of folks!  Personally I think I get picked on cause folks think I talk funny but the Missus says it's not the only reason!  [​IMG]   Glad to have you.  Keep Smokin!

    Hey - thanks for the invite !

    I hail from Essex , I have been smoking low and slow for about 6 years now, I got my hands dirty with a barrel bbq and offset coals, before quickly progressing to a COS Landmann tennessse, then onto a Pro Q excel and recently a Weber one touch premium (primarily for direct heat cooking)

    I am also making an iPhone app for low and slow cooking :)

    Hi Russnettle, Welcome.

    The app does sound interesting.  I have the Weber's on the grill app.  It is really good with lots of great tips, guides and recipe's, so it will really be great to have a look.  When will it be available? and how much will is cost?

    Hiya Smokin Monkey

    The Weber App is great, but I forget to use !!!.  but it's well worth the £1,49 as it gives you shopping lists for everything you need, plus lots of other great things, have a look its worth it.  So it will be interesting and exciting to get a UK app that is geared up to the UK.

    Hi russnettle, this is right up my street, and a lot more people on this forum!

    I have been using apps that are used for Auditing, which you build into it exactly what you want, but a dedicated app is the way to go.

    Do you build apps for a living?

    Good stuff, I really hope it will be useful, it's certainly been handy for me so far even in its early stages

    Yes I am an iOS developer for a living
