Re: G'day from Melbourne (NE 'burbs)

Welcome Si, You might find a couple of other nick-names on here that you recognise from the AHB forum. There seems to be a pretty high correlation between the production of meat-based and barley-based goods. Seems like this particular forum is back on the mend, so ask lots of questions, and don't fo...

Re: Home Brew

I'd also recommend joining a local brewing club. You'll not only get information on how to brew, but you'll get to meet some great people, share your own as well as their beers, and get instant feedback from some pretty qualified beer judges. Depending on where you live, have a Google around, I'm su...

Re: Schweinshaxe

Here's my first go with the Aldi pork knuckles. Just dried them overnight in the fridge, then into the Dragon for about 5 1/2 hours around 125 deg C. http://i.imgur.com/UUBJmFul.jpg Cooked up some sauerkraut with bacon, onion and capsicum, and placed the knuckles on the 'kraut for the last hour.

Re: Akorn and Dragon General Discussion

Probably what killed the Dragon is the Australian dollar exchange rate plunge. BBQG probably looked at the cost to import the next batch of Dragons and the next price to sell and probably worked out too hard to sell for enough profit. We have to remember they were $499 without a defector or cover v...

Re: Akorn and Dragon General Discussion

they told me that they are not selling the dragon anymore due to lack of interest from the public. Gotta call B.S. on that! You only have to look at the number of new owners on this forum. I know 2 other guys have bought them based purely on my personal recommendation. More likely they got told by ...

That's a good price for a D&C stone. When was it on special?

Re: Thailand visit next month

Can't help you with any BBQ suggestions, but I can suggest a one word answer: Seafood.

Beautiful, fresh fish & crustaceans, cooked in front of your eyes. All served with cheap, cold beer.

Man, I want to get back there...

Re: Rough time guide for snake and 7.5kg whole chuck.

I've always done a snake with 2 on bottom, one on top. I would have said make sure you stack your snake so the briquettes 'fall' backwards, rather than forwards, but it looks to me like you had no problems with the snake petering out, quite the opposite. As UG said, looks like it built too much heat...

Re: Rough time guide for snake and 7.5kg whole chuck.

I would spin the grill around so your deflector shield is always in between the heat & the meat. That way you're getting indirect, rather than direct, heat.

Every couple of hours, just spin the grill around a little bit more (counter-clockwise, in your instance)

Re: Bradley Sugar Cure - pimping it up

No more salt. There is not much more you can add other than spices. Thanks for the advice. Is this due to the % of salt in the curing process? I'm most certainly not complaining about the flavour of my first attempt, but I'm a creative cook, so like to experiment a little. Just so long as it's stil...

Bradley Sugar Cure - pimping it up

So, I spontaneously bought an 800gm tin of Bradley Sugar Cure, as I was keen to try my hand at bacon. To my delight, the bacon turned out great (I haven't died yet, so must have gotten it safe), but I'm keen to see if I can pimp out some of the flavours in my future smallgoods experiments. I'm think...
