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...

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...

Re: New BBQ and Entertainment area - which BBQ set-up?

Yep, $5k is OK if it gets me a good BBQ, with hood etc, with cupboards underneath, some drawers would be nice too; about 2-2.5m long. What's seen as the top 3 good brands these days for grilling but also roasting with hood down? And you reckon allowing for freestanding BBQ(s) is the way to go rathe...
