Some brands of BBQ manufacturers produce a product and then stick to the ‘If it aint broke, don’t try to fix it’ school of thought. Well that’s all well and good but more recent times in the BBQ world have meant that some of these long standing and well-established manufacturers are being left behind. The market for outdoor cooking is ever growing, and more and more people are looking to get involved, and are now armed with more knowledge than ever of cooking styles and types of BBQ and grilling, thanks to social media, BBQ blogs and YouTube videos. As that’s where more forward-thinking brands like ProQ have stepped up to the challenge.[Read more…]
The Masterbuilt Gravity Smoker 560 is a new grill to the market, and I was fortunate to get a pre-release model to test out, and come up with some recipes for. It’s a really interesting and well thought out grill.[Read more…]
Quinta Kamado Classic
I’ve been using this classic sized Quinta over the summer and have been really impressed with it, it’s an absolute bargain price wise for someone looking to buy a Kamado, but not quite being able to afford the more expensive brands.

ProQ Ranger Review
I’ve been smoking on ProQ bullet smokers for a fair few years now, having had a ProQ Frontier as my first real smoker. I’m a big fan of the way they have ease of control and good performance. [Read more…]
Reliable, consistent, Hot Smoking
The Bradley Original Smoker is a Hot smoker, that uses compressed wood briquettes and an electric heating element inside a fridge like main unit, the insulation maintains a good steady temperature, and is easily controllable from the smoker unit. The smoking wood briquettes drop down a chute and onto a little conveyor belt system, pushing them onto a element that get them smoking for around 20 minutes.
It is a great piece of kit for reliable consistent results, you just set the temperature, load up with briquettes and leave to smoke away. The results are pretty awesome, but not comparable with using a charcoal heat source in my opinion.
See my original review here I use the smoker regularly for the last couple of years, and it’s become a useful part of my smoking armoury. Ideal if you want to set and leave, though the briquettes are on the expensive side.
Price: Around the £350 mark
