Hello

Post  All Weather Griller on Fri Mar 21, 2008 10:48 am

Hi, I joined the forum on reccomendation of a good friend, fellow griller and now smoker. I don't posess a ProQ but have 4 Webers a WSM, Platinum 57", Smokey Joe Gold and WeberQ 100.

I'm a charcoal fanatic and tend to avoid the gas options. I haven't been smoking that long (since Sept 07) but have found it to be an awesome way to cook food. I have BBq'd on the Beech in Spain in December, Done Smoked Turkey New Years, Halloween and almost any occassion that I can justify it (So that would be when the day ends in 'y').

I think that we in the UK are a bit disenfranchised from the Weber group as everything seems to be US orientated, until recently I have remained registered on their Webernation site as Alabama because they didn't recognise the UK. So it's really refreshing to see a UK site for comparing notes, ingredients, techniques and general banter. I hear the US have a grilling/smoking circuit - it would be good if the UK had something similiar (Have caravan will travel)

I look forward to being a regular poster.

Nice one guys! Very Happy

Hi Don,

Thanks for the note, I agree I think we are the poor relation over here. I really wanted to upgrade my platinum to a Blue performer but when I contacted them, they said there will be no colours imported to UK and to go away quietly.

I am trying to suss out how to use the picture tools so I can get some Forn uploaded.

I'll send you a link when (if) I am successful.

Excellent new Mack, I will have a word with Anvilhead to see if we can arrange leave passes and an excursion to the sunny south.

Note the referral from Anvilhead to 'Pudding Platts' this relates to my occasional fluttering with BBQ'ing desserts on the grill. When I have sussed my photobucket think I will show you.

There's a short tutorial here http://proq.forumotion.com/the-pub-f20/posting-photo-s-t106.htm on how to upload pics from Photobucket, we could even start a new topic just for your creations Laughing

Sussed the PhotoBucket

Post  All Weather Griller on Fri Mar 21, 2008 1:30 pm

I'm on mobile broadband at the minute but I will post more when I get back to a Landline.

I think I will start a new topic to discuss Desserts (Puddings) should they be grilled or not?

Thanks guys,

I'm finding the whole forum thing as addictive as q'ing. I'm renewing my interest in Desserts/Puddings now.

Language Barrier

I'm guessing there might be a little bit of a language gap here, but what do you consider a 'pudding'? Question

Gotcha! Over here a pudding is a gelatenous, gooy, dessert.



I figured we were not talking about the same pudding. Laughing

Re: Hello

Post  All Weather Griller on Fri Mar 21, 2008 7:35 pm

Jim, there is a history here. Anvilhead is a good friend of mine but is a traditionalist he feels that BBQ'ing is meant for meat and men only, the view being that desserts are girlie and shouldn't be allowed near the grill.

I have to respect his points as when he comes round for a beer and burger he constantly reminds me about it. However, I can't resist the temptation to try something sweet at the embers lay dying in the bottom of my grill and are still good for a tasty dessert. We both agree to disagree on this point.

I'm surprised we haven't seen Codhead join yet to assist in the administering of grief on the "Pudding" point. Laughing

Hi Graham,
Good to have you on board. What do you cook on?
If you guys are so against puddings, I'd hate to ask your opinions on Veg Shocked
