Hi Benbo welcome to the forum.

Not that far away from you on the Isle of Man, are you new to food smoking?

Sounds very similar to how I started out many years ago apart from my water smoker being crushed by a wooden sleeper!  :)

Had Bradley’s for over 15 years now... enjoy.

For us members across the pond, what in the world is a "wooden sleeper". The only thing I can picture is a fallen tree. If that is the case, back in November a fallen tree just missed one of my cookers.

That is also a name for railroad ties on the side of the pond. But I couldn't picture how a railroad tie could take out your smoker until you explained the situation.
