Re: GMG any good?

More than happy with my Jim Bowie and the service from Chris @ urbangiller. I have not had a bad meal come off mine yet and have run probably a dozen bags of pellets through it so far. Cooked everything from brined chickens to pork shoulders to legs of lamb to beef jerkey to beer can burgers to bake...

Re: How to keep cooked chook?

Brined them, smoked them, then froze them for almost a week. They weren't as juicy as a freshly cooked one but were pretty damn good just the same and got rave reviews so all good :)

Cheers,
Dave.

Re: How to keep cooked chook?

Actually thought about getting someone else to cook them for me, about 2 hours after I put 4 birds in brine goddammit... What's my end product likely to be like? Smoked cardboard?

Re: How to keep cooked chook?

Same. But work schedule won't allow it I'm afraid. Looks like I'll just have to survive with what comes out on the defrost cycle. Shame because I know how damn nice they are freshly cooked.

How to keep cooked chook?

I'm getting a few (6) chooks ready for Christmas dinner, but I need to cook them a week ahead of time. What's the best way to keep them in good condition until Christmas dinner? A bit worried that freezing will dry them out. 4 of the chooks will be brined and a couple marinated.

Cheers,
Dave.

Re: Local downdraft available?

Would be good to see a pic of it, thanks. I imagine there are a few different ones available in the states, just nothing here.

Re: Local downdraft available?

Yeah it is a pretty simple thing really, but don't want to have put up with dumb&$se engineers trying to build it for me. Was hoping someone in Oz had started building them already. Will pay the extra to get one freighted over from the states if there's not a local alternative.

Cheers,
Dave.

Local downdraft available?

Just wondering if there's anyone in Australia making a downdraft style product for the Green Mountain Grills? I've got a Jim Bowie and know postage from the states will kill the price.

Cheers,
Dave.

Re: Pulled Pork for beginners, by a beginner.

Tried this one for the first time today, turned out not too bad, perhaps just a little dry in the outside parts of the meat. Just after some pointers on what to do differently next time. I used a boneless pork fore quarter roast and a packet BBQ rub. I started it in an aluminium tray but part way th...

Re: Looking for this part.

Thanks guys, I like the magnet idea, a few good magnets will work a treat I think. I've drilled 4 x 6mm holes, 2 in each end, which I can run some 6mm rod through when I need to have a second rack or in this case, use it as a jerky rack. http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a69/Davez104/IMAG1529_zpsj8d5...

Looking for this part.

It's the little cover that blocks the probe hole on a GMG when the probe is not in use. I want to drill a couple more holes in my grill but would like to put these covers over them when they are not being used. They don't need to be identical to this one, I just want to now what this part would be c...

Re: Swineapple

Has anyone tried partially cooking the pineapple and pork before combining? When I cooked it the meat was crap to be honest, like a lot of people have described.

You're possibly correct, I'm doing a lot of learning as I stumble my way through. Thanks for the advice so far, still lots of reading to do.

Re: Hark vs Masterbuilt electric?

Yeah chips, but you can source chips from many different places. Some units require their own specific brand of pellet be used, forces you back to keep buying their products, that's what I don't like so much and is the reason the Bradley electric smoker has been crossed off the list.
