Re: What's Happenin Fam!!

Welcome Benny You took how long to unbox your Komado?

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

Re: New here, Be gentle!

Yeah I wouldn't lose sleep over a 20F variance....it'll make bugger all difference. I've tasted a high heat brisket that was started at around 280F, smoked for 3 hours then thrown in a deep pan, covered with foil till it got to 205F internal meat temp...the results were magic. YouTube is very much a...
