Re: Review - Dusty Moose 47cm Charcoal Smoker - A smoker made for Australians

Kevwing, it takes some time to learn to use any smoker and what will work for a WSM will more than likely work for your Dusty. I've never seen your BBQ in the flesh so it's hard to tell on what it's like inside, all smokers leak at some point, you could add some gaskets around it but smoke will forc...

Re: Tri tip steak sandwiched

Those medallions of Tri-tip look pretty tasty....yes it's not what I call a tender cut but it's a tasty cut and yeah reverse sear is the best way to cook any steak IMO because you use the juices of the steak to create it's own crusty flavour...yummo!! Tri-tip is often found near the rump of the catt...

Re: Advice appreciated on my first Brisket - Dusty Moose Smoker

Hi Kevwing Sorry I didn't see your post earlier to reply. I'm not in anyway a brisket expert, only having done a couple myself so I've also been studying ways to make it better for me, sounds like you just dried yours out....but never mind, I hoped that you could at least saved some of it. One of th...

Re: G'day from Toowoomba qld

Hi Woody, Seems as though Toowoomba has a stack of BBQ shops to check out what's on offer...I guess theres now so many types and styles of BBQs and smokers that it can be confusing. Do you have any other type of BBQ that you use at all like a Gas grill etc or a Weber kettle? You mentioned in one of ...

Re: Hi!

G'day and Welcome Gocal,.. firstly in order to guide you, its best you let us know what you have now. To learn the art of live fire, most newbies begin with the Weber Kettle as its very versatile pending on how you place your coals, some begin with the Komado, others an ugly drum smoker....theres ju...

Welcome Benny You took how long to unbox your Komado? Are you kidding me....that thing would've been unboxed so bloody quick....I would've had it lit and cooking before anyone got out of bed on Christmas Morning :lol: I've never cooked on a Komado myself but have tasted food that has come off one......

Re: Peach wood

There's always room for smoking wood, most of what you see in the stores are imported from the USA so theres a market always for a local, but you have to find a way to cut it into fist sized pieces and bag them into say 3-5 kg lots, theres probably more money in wood chips for those who use gas bbqs...

Re: Peach wood

Hi Mate, if they're still in the ground or still on the tree they'd be still green for a while so you'd be best to season them for a few Months out in the weather once cut off. What are you going to use the wood in? a Kettle or a offset or something else? But yeah, cut them in smaller chunks, about ...

Re: Jumbuck 5 in 1 Drum

start with chicken thigh fillets, drumstick or wings to get the feel of it. use hickory or applewood for smoke...use wood chunks not chips....use heatbeads for reliable heat unill you get used to cooker then experiment with lump charcoal.

Re: Jumbuck 5 in 1 Drum

Hi and welcome Morbius, Yeah one of those temp meters would be good, especially the bigger one, has 2 probes, one for cooker and one for meat. It'd be a good idea to do an initial burn in to season and burn off any residue from the manufacturer so a huge chimney full of hot coals, put some wood chun...

Re: Z Grills Australian Launch....20% Off Code.

Thanks gg for posting about these, they look quite good for the price and very competitive, just hope that they can cover the generous 3 year warranty which is probably the best one for pellet cookers to date.

Cheers
