Re: Weber Q pizza query

If I can add my 2 bobs worth in old fart language. I agree with previous posts, Ive found for me with a Q2000 to do a great pizza with crusty bottom, its best to lift the pizza stone up high into the heat. I got a tip and it works perfectly, I use three small baked bean tins used and washed out on t...

Re: Saw this advertised at Bunnings

Agree, did some research 45 min to heat up?? Bugger that, an hour to cook a pizza and all that gas used. So I read the hints on cooking pizza in my WeberQ2200 and gave it a crack last night the results were great. I used 3 cans (med sized baked beans) to raise it up and baking paper for the first 6 ...

Re: Gourmet Brined Chicken

My second attempt at this, thought the first one was great, this was better. Thanks to Urban for your suggested temp I cooked it to 74 as you suggested and after a short rest carved up the most succulent chicken ever. :D

Re: Gourmet Brined Chicken

Im cooking my first brined chicken tonight and have had it drying overnight, Im assuming the discolouring'(darkening a bit) of the skin is normal?? Also should I oil the skin before I put it in the Q??

Cheers.
