Just thought I'd introduce myself, I'm from Scotland.
I've always loved BBQing, however here in Scotland normally we can't get it the BBQ out so much due to the terribly wet weather here on the west coast of Scotland. However this year has been good and I've been looking for a new BBQ. I was currently using an old open grill handed down to me by my father in law, but have been looking at a new kettle unit but decided they just weren't what I wanted.
Hence I have taking the (huge) plunge and just ordered myself a Kamado Joe classic II. Living somewhere where it mostly rains this is basically a ludicrous purchase..however I am determined I will use it all year round. In fact I've told my better half we can't use the oven for the next 6 months just so I can justify the cost!
I also ordered, Beer can chicken holder, Pizza stone, calzone press, looflighter and based on recommendations on here..a thermoworks smoke.
I love american style BBQ food and smoked foods, so hoping I will be able to recreate some of that goodness here! I also bought the Hot coals Kamado book, hoping its decent ..I have seen the meathead book. But felt I might leave that for a few months until I have honed my technique.
