Re: Weber q vs stainless

It's a matter of 'taste' sure the big stainless steel BBQ looks great, and you can hang everything inside the cabinet etc, but that is N0T the 'taste' I was thinking about ..... :lol: Get a 450 gm Porterhouse cut extra thick, just about the footprint (size) of your hand and then add sea salt/grinded...

Re: Ziegler & Brown Grand Turbo

Yep, we looked at the weber. Interested in wether the Ziggy cooks better (hotter esp). Quality-wise, the Ziggy seems to come out on top. Just how hot does the BBQ have to get to, to be hotter ? 190 degrees is as hot as most commercial kitchens require to cook their steaks etc This is easily availab...

Re: Baby Q Temperature

:idea:


can you keep the lid held up a few inches (mm's, Cm's etc) with a piece metal etc so the heat escapes slowly :roll:

Re: Which BBQ Rangehood?

cheers Mainey, are you saying the bigaussiedeals / Phoenix unit isn't effective at the club, potentially because of the install though? ive done the measurements in-situ here and it checks out per their recommendation, although take your point on lights - that was one of my concerns in comparison t...

Re: Which BBQ Rangehood?

I don't have one either but use one at a club I belong to :) What I have noticed with their 'smoke extractor' is it has been set up against the rear wall. A good place you would suggest - however the down lights are not shining on the BBQ plate/griddle and the smoke goes up in front of the 'extracto...

Re: baby Q burner blockage, sort of

Contact the supplier, tell them of the problem and ask their opinion as they may have had it happen be4. They may give you a contact number for a weber advise line :) Obviously it is old and has blockage inside the gas tube (obviously) but don't stuf around with it yourself unless advised by some-on...

Question

Have been watching ch 33 (food chanel) :lol: Thinking to myself, could you cook ribs etc, in a baby Weber, if you turned the temp down low, for a loooong period of time :?: I'm thinking to get the meat to fall off the bone, as some do in their smokers in the usa, obviously it would not have the smok...

Re: What BBQ to buy?

The Weber with the cream coloured top cooks 3 ways, it acts like an oven as well as cooking with direct heat from the gas pipe and also the heat retained in the thick / wide g riddle bars. Pick a Weber by the size of the cooking surface you need and take it home :) I think you get about 6 steaks on ...

Re: Newbie after advice

:idea: Look at the size of the grill bars on the BBQ. Try and get them as close together as possible with thick (wide) grill bars to rest the steaks on. A good comparison is the weber v Ziegler & Brown. On the Z & B it looks like half the grill bars are missing and they are very thin in comparison. ...

Re: Newbie with some build questions

Re: BBQ?

:mrgreen: Another vote for the Baby 'Q' :D It can easily cook 6 x thick , half kilo steaks :wink: When I looked for a new BBQ to replace the aged 4 x burner, I went to BBQ Galore and seen their version of the 'Q' range, the Zeigler and Brown. When comparing the Baby 'Q' to a Zeigler and Brown, the g...
