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: What's your dream outdoor kitchen?

OMG Dodgy.....the sky's the limit....i'd love to spend your money :mrgreen: There's a lot to consider when designing an outdoor kitchen from scratch. First you need to work on a budget figure +/- say 20% Next think seriously about what you 're likely to cook regularly. Think about a built in Komado ...

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.

Re: Amelia Pellet Pizza Oven

Hi Emski...I clicked on the link to have a look and these look quite impressive....not a bad price either, about the same as a new Weber kettle.
I think for the price they might be well worth considering.

Thanks for sharing

Cheers

Re: First brisket - issues?

Just wondering if it would've benefitted by a longer rest period, perhaps up to 4 hours? I always wrap in 2 layers of foil followed by 2-3 layers of newspaper which is a good insulator.....don't forget that bit of meat has been cooking for a long time. I usually allow 3-4 hour rest. This is only my ...

Re: American import

Welcome JM I thought they smoked a lot in the Carolinas but I heard theres quite a culture difference between NC & SC. Not sure how long you've been in Brissie but it gets very humid up there. I used to live in Wynnum about 11 yrs ago. Over the past 4 years, American style BBQ & comps have really ta...

My 1 ct... The water helps with the moisture during the cook... But its also a stabiliser for the temps... I found that when I used my WSM i just filled it with sand... does a pretty good job of holding temps as well.. Happy BBQ-ing, Paul If using sand in a WSM you need to have it fully covered Pau...

Re: Vertical smoker build

Wow...that smoker looks as wild as the machine behind it....lots of space for tucker and good heat retention although being up in the NT......don't think you need much retention. All it needs now is a good paint job...probably by using an engine block paint....now which colour...black or red...eithe...

Re: Has anyone used the slow n sear?

The S&S is used for the minion method of hot coals over unlit coals so they'll burn down rather than up which helps regulate the heat, the water in the barrier will act as heat sink. Its a good idea but very expensive for what it is. The way i've always tackled this method is by using 2 brick pavers...
