No one else has suggested this, so I'll put in my two cents- frogmats are a great purchase. They are non-stick mats that work great in a Bradley.
Life is short, eat the dessert first!

Well, first efforts at smoking today.

Up bright and early and seasoned the smoker. Took longer than expected - mainly because I hadn't pushed the lead all the way in! :-[

Then onto the ribs using the 3:2:1 method.  Made up my own version of a Kansas City BBQ sauce which I was really pleased with.

As for the ribs, perhaps a touch dry, but absolutely the best I've ever eaten.  That's really encouraging that they were so good but still room to improve.

The results:



Tomorrow, some salmon fillets and BBQ Chicken pieces.

I'm hooked!

Looks like ribs in the UK don't have as much meat on them as they do here!  Congratulations on you first cook and welcome to the addiction...er... forum.

Judging from the picture it seems obvious that they were horrible tasting and nobody ate any ;)
