    Hi Rick, welcome aboard. There are a few of us on here from the UK, but we are thinly spread across the country. Where are you based? We are near Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. A lot of info can be found by searching, the main thing is to post up your cooks with pictures and spend time reading the cook threads to get ideas.

    You make it sound as though it’s not really about the Friday night buffoonery.

    Gotta admit that when I first moved to KY it took me quite a while to sort out which was which in a general story head-line.  Slow learner here.

    Welcome aboard Rick! Brush up on your lump knowledge is the main thing.

    @northGAcock I don't think there will be any confusion since the college is a lower case uk.=)

    Welcome to the board and egg life. I'm a London Egg person.

    We only have two rules here: 1) Post loads of photos of whatever you cook. 2) At weekends, when the moderators are snoozing, post threads about Trump

    One of those is bad advice
