Re: Newby from Balwyn

Haven't seen the Dusty moose in the flesh as yet however I have seen WSM, Pro-Q and Fornetto and whilst I'll always maintain that you just can't go past the durability, solidness and workability of the Weber WSM, the other 2 would be a decent choice too. Many Comp teams have had great success out of...

Re: HELP - my wood pellet grill controller is broken

How old is it perthsmoker? is it still under warranty? Did you buy it from a reputable BBQ retailer like BBQs Galore etc.... It could be just a very loose connection somewhere under the hopper but if you arn't confident on having a look yourself, you might need a sparkie to do so..... Even if your T...

Re: Nico's Cheap Offset Smoker

Looks a good little unit for $700 Yeah i'm not a fan of kingsfords either...I always use heatbeads.....found them to be the best overall for consistency and I've been using them well over 20 yrs. Brisket needs to be brought up to 203F or about 95C, wrapped and rested for about 2-3 hours.....you didn...

Re: How much do you open your vents for low n slow?

The kettle acts as a convection oven, fires needs oxygen to burn, that we have established but to limit the oxygen, the fire doesn't burn as hot so we need to damper the air going up into the fire so we close the bottom venting to about a half to a 1/3rd but keep the top open because the act of the ...

Re: Sunday is Rib Day

Yup, Holy F*ck is the entry level and it's pretty hot. But very tasty with it. Too many hot sauces are just chemically hot, burn with no taste. His other stuff is hotter, a bit too hot for me: Christ on a Bike Holy Mother of God and occasionally as a special edition, Judas is Scary Hot :D He ships ...

Re: weber Burning charcoal to fast

Hi Damo, don't know what charcoal you're using or which set up you used in your cook with the Weber...I need to know this in order to advise you. Once I know how you set your Weber up for the cook, then I may have a better understanding of where it didn't go well. Theres a few good techniques to use...

Re: Newbie after advice

There are very few BBQs that are Not made in China these days and most from large well known companies such as Masport, Beafeater, Gasmate and the likes but not everything made in China is substandard, in fact much of the mid to high end products are very well made and not to be dissed.

Re: Hi All

You did a good job with that pork for a new Kamado owner. One of the tricks if the crackling is a bit soft at the end is to cook at @150C and at the end open up the vents until the temp gets around 220C and then take the meat out. It is the opposite way you do it compared to cooking in an oven or o...

Re: Logs in Brisbane

Try contacting some arborists in Brissie through yellow pages or just google Arborists Brisbane. Usually they will have section cuts available.....but it's what comes available per job...it's just another way for them to make a few extra quid...especially this time of year for firewood.

cheers
