Re: Which cut do I choose?

Ask them to put a collar butt through the pickle. Thats what I get from the same place. Gives a great result when pulled.

The marinated loins are bloody great from there too. Just cut off as steaks and grill!

Topside will never roast. Put it in a pot with a rock, boil for hours, eat the rock!

Re: Good butchers NOR in Perth

Yeah, Dubrovnicks gone.

Barbaros hands down the best nearest to you.

Re: BBQ Mesh (Frogmat Clone) $3.95 Bargain!

For the WA guys, none left at Clarkson. I got the last one at Joondalup.

Had to laugh when I asked the price and the guy said they should be less than $30.

Re: pork rack

For perfect crackle, get the rind as dry as you can, even leave exposed in the fridge for a couple of days.

Also pour some boiling water over the rind and pat dry,

Then do the normal stuff, oil, salt, high temp to start.

Wiki forgot the other term used in Australia - Summer Lamb.











Some are Lamb, some are Mutton, some are Rams!

Its tells you when one of the iridium sattelites passes over your location and the sun flashes off its solar panels

Re: Pork belly on the Weber Q

If you are using vacuum packed pork belly, just pour some boiling water over the skin and it will crackle. Old chinese trick!
