Thanks folks - Great advice, as ever on this forum!
So, "Wicked Good Barbecue" ordered - Been sitting on my Amazon list for a while and had some credit to use up.
I'm going to get my hands on some of the rubs/sauces recommended (when I can warrant the international shipping costs or when I know someone who's coming Stateside) and try them out, get an idea of the popular flavours - I'll then probably try and re-create similar profiles myself and see how we get on. Either way, I'm looking forward to a long winter practicing!
Thanks again for the help all!
