Re: How important are temperatures?

There are usually only 4 heat levels you need to consider for BBQ. 1/ Smoking - usually between 80 to 120C or around 190-250F 2/ Barbeque- a little different to smoking but is still regarded as low n slow and this can be done from 120-150C or approx. 250-320F 3/ Roasting or baking- about 150-180C or...

Re: Bbq advice

"We’ll definitely have a range hood otherwise we get smoked out by the normal gas bbq." Mate, any BBQ is going to give you fumes, smoke and problems. If you go a 'smoker' option, way more so... Even an old school Weber kettle with charcoal is a bigger problem than a standard gas BBQ. Add a smoker b...

Re: Hot Cross Bun Pudding

David, you can post your photos direct now but using the attachments tab under the posting window.

We had to implement that when Photobucket stopped allowing 3rd party sharing.

Just hit the attachments tab below and browse your files for the photo.....you may have to resize though.

Cheers

Re: Anyone doing BBQ for Australia Day

Yeah I want to use the Kettle but I don't want to be standing around all day with it as I don't have any shade or awnings where I am, so I was thinking maybe get a whole heap of buffalo wings and use the kettle kone to grill them up....maybe a couple of lamb loin chops to grill and eat while waiting...

Re: Weber q vs stainless

Hi Little_o, That is quite a good question and I'll try to give you my spin on it in this answer. No Doubt when you first lay eyes on a Weber Q, and scratch your head wondering why these things are so bloody popular and why those who use them wax lyrical about them. They are an aquired taste....when...

Anyone doing BBQ for Australia Day

Hi folks...Australia day is fast approaching...anyone got much planned for the BBQ? It looks as though it will be hot...approaching 40C in many places...so just keep an ear out for any Fireban days which unfortunately means no live fires.....Charcoal or wood....and this could even extend to pellet B...

Re: Bbq advice

Hi and welcome Little_o Can you describe a little how your outdoor kitchen will look like, will it be made of brick, or maybe Stainless steel tables with underneath storage....will the kitchen be covered by a roof of some kind as you'll need good ventilation. Will the BBQ of choice be a slide in or ...

Re: Getting the Ziggy real hot

Yes BBQ Dad, I think its the one referred to, there are a couple of sizes I think. These were introduced due to the outstanding success of the Weber Q series which have been around since 2006 because I bought one of the first Q120 that came out. These little portable bbqs took off like a grass fire....

Re: Do you find it hard to maintain low temp in the weber kettle?

I've never used the S&S but I often used to do something similar using the Minion method only I used pavers which are also a good heat sink. The S&S being metal might throw a bit of extra heat just like a kettle kone does. My only suggestion is that it might still be getting too much air from the bo...

Re: Getting the Ziggy real hot

It could be many things but yeah maybe it might start to melt stuff like burners or control knobs ....but it could possibly be that it wasn't designed for high heat grilling like Weber is. You see, one of the designs that Weber have achieved and patented is the ability to cook high heat with lid dow...
