LOL, Welcome to the Forum Hamlet77. I'm not from Liverpool nor the UK, but like you I was bitten by the same bug that bit you. I purchased my Bradley some 3 years ago and love it very much. Made countless mistakes and learned from them. Read other forum members problems and followed their solutions and now make many items in my smoker, chicken, smoked cold cuts, sausages, cheeses, etc. Doesn't take long to learn, just document as you go and it get easier. So have fun and Enjoy.
