My cycling is mainly commuting, approx 100 miles a week into central london from Zone 4. Currently doing these miles on a Boardman disc road bike. First Carbon bike,loving it so far.
I'm trying to get in some non commute rides in the evenings and weekends.
I like tinkering with bikes but I'm short of time due to work and family commitments. Current projects:
Gryphon now being re-done with a 1*10 and NW chainring to be my offroader, have it fitted with a Rohloff.
Planning a 650B build into an old 70's Condor Baracchi frame as a little experiment.
I might get some canti studs brazed onto my first ever decent frame, which I still have, an old 82/83 Dawes Galaxy and run some 650B wheels on this frame.

@dimblue good deal and nice and easy to deal with. Thanks
@Ellis47 top chap, free stuff delivered!!!! Thanks the tyres are great.
@mattioats, great ruckie nice chap. Thanks
@tysona, top man, exactly as described and delivered. ta very much.
I was quite alarmed at the smoke it produced initially
but the chicken and potato wedges were good
gonna try ribs next and maybe a reverse sear steaks next.
something else I discovered/realised the meat probe has got to be in all the way to the bend or it gives high readings.
2nd dibs on the "Exzentriker BSA" please
@Ramsaye cheers, I'm looking forward to using it well eating stuff from it.
Appreciate the tips excellent info. I got myself a cover yesterday, was using a tarp previously, and a thermal blanket so hopefully I'm 'covered'.
I assume leaving pellets in the auger tube but could lead to them getting damp if not used frequently? What sort of use does yours get? Weekly less/more?
I'm now on the lookout for a little table/stand to raise it up to a usable height more like BBQ height. Ikea have nice BBQ table/stand but at £80 it's a bit expensive given that it's not ideal.
I might have a crack at making something and include some hidden watertight storage for the pellets, decent lockable wheels, waterproof box for the electrics and some working space.
Why did you have to strip your auger?
@dancing james ta for info. I'll give my two a go and see what differences I get.
so many great looking smokey things to have a go at.
@dancing_james, is the thermometer that comes with the GMG decent/accurate enough? I've got one of those little cheapo jobs from ebay and was intending to compare for accuracy the GMG ebay one when I start smoking.
Maybe ill hedge and go 170. Cheers
@falconvitesse that's very true but what I didn't explain is that I'm unlikely to get a pass for a bit of me/bike time having not been around much the weekends before.
This is looking shaky for me (gutted) as I've not finished my bike and I'm working this Sat and probably next Sat as well.
Need some advice please, I've bought myself a GMG Davy Crockett.
First go I'm going I'm going to try a whole chicken by creating a new profile.
With the trays set to indirect I think I need to run it in the "smoke" phase at 225F for circa an hour?
Then turn it up to 375f and run it till internal temp at the centre of the breast is 175F
Does this sound like it will not kill me and my offspring?
