Re: Its Quiet on this Board

It’s an interesting time. With COVID there’s supposed to be a spurt of BBQ sales with people forced to eat at home. BBQing for enjoyment is the right idea. No need to force yourself to BBQ, it’s there to enjoy. Looking on the bright side and the price of meat, you’re less likely to screw up your coo...

Re: Its Quiet on this Board

With the general move away from forums to other things it’s probably a bit ironic that this post is as a guess one of the most popular topic on this forum nowadays.

Re: Its Quiet on this Board

Haven’t done Spam, but if you remember the days of canned ham at Christmas, have fond memories of a few slices/ham steaks cooked and scooping off the tasty jelly with a spoon.

A few slices of cooked salami and fried eggs is tasty too.

Re: Its Quiet on this Board

I thought this forum was finally gone a few weeks ago when it disappeared. Still pretty quiet. I guess for the forum old timers there’s only so many times you can post a photo of what you’re cooking. I guess I could comment on how expensive meat is nowadays and you need to win the lottery to eat it ...

Re: Remove ash/charcoal after each cook...?

I clean out the ash tray after a few cooks. I don’t remove the unused charcoal for most cooks. I top it up to replace what ai used in the last cook. When I do a low and slow cook I clean out the old charcoal and use new so there is a constant burn rate/ heat output.

Re: Kamado choices in 2020

I own both a Kamado Joe (ceramic) and Akorn (metal insulated) from Bunnings. Since you're just starting out charcoal BBQ'ing I would recommend the Akorn. It's a good price, made of metal with insulation and tough. It doesn't use a lot of charcoal so it is very cheap to run. It's a good way to try ou...

Re: New to BBQ smoking

A good price to try smoking. Save some extra dollars by buying your heat beads from Bunnings. Heaps cheaper than BBQ Galore/supermarket prices. 7.5kg for $11.98 https://www.bunnings.com.au/heat-beads-7-5kg-bbq-briquettes_p0029014 https://2ecffd01e1ab3e9383f0-07db7b9624bbdf022e3b5395236d5cf8.ssl.cf4....

Charcoal baskets

Charcoal baskets. Weber had them for years for their kettles. You can pick them up from a few places now. $12.95 from BBQ Galore for example https://www.barbequesgalore.com.au/pro-smoke-charcoal-baskets https://www.barbequesgalore.com.au/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/719x466/9df78eab33525d08d6...

Have a look at these guys

The $15,000 kitchen package gives the $6,000 spend on the Ziggy some context when it comes to outdoor kitchens.

Re: Ziegler & Brown Grand Turbo

Thanks Davo. Yep, we looked at the weber. (We also have a weber family Q at home, an old weber kettle and a small weber charcoal.). Interested in wether the Ziggy cooks better (hotter esp). Quality-wise, the Ziggy seems to come out on top. Once you get past $1,000 for a gas BBQ the return on cookin...
