    Interesting, looks like it might be quite capable, not sure how long those racks will last though.

    I noticed my weber performer has a small hole in the side now after about 9 years, I don't expect the bowl to last much longer now so I've gone an ordered the new mastertouch premium with the hinged lid and indirect deflection plate. Really wanted a summit, but those prices..
    I'm starting to think I should have got a standard mastertouch, but we'll see..

    The seam form the water is supposed to help with the production of smoke and then helps it stick to the meat

    Don;t need to take the skin off, just put the salmon pieces skin side down on some brown paper. Once cooked you just peel it right off.

    I would love a summit charcoal too. Can never see any second hand anywhere, which I guess is a sign they are that good. Anyone on here have one?

    The summit is eye wateringly expensive!

    The skin has a layer of fat under neath that leaves a different taste to the rest of the fish though which is why i prefer to remove it. Not bad just different.

    As for a barbicue get a kamado style :)

    Interesting to know but to my uneducated palate, I didn't notice any difference between the two flavour wise, however for me a saucer was easier for control and clean up.

    Really pleased with my St Louis ribs at the weekend. I've also managed to convince the missus to go halves with me on a Fireboard so we can enjoy more meat over the summer!

    Does anyone here have an offset smoker?
    (cheap one has come up locally and always fancied it to sit beside the gas bbq)

    Simplest and cheapest replacement is a ball of foil scrunched up and stuffed into the grill, then shove the probe through it.

    My Joe arrived today! Unfortunately the weather is atrocious so I probably won't get to use it for a few days. [​IMG]

    Cheers, that's a really good idea. I actually sent off for a new ambient probe as the seller says they'll replace any that go wrong, and mine was giving dodgy readings, and without prompting they sent a clip with it!

    Awesome! Weather is no excuse, put an umbrella up and get cooking.
