Re: Replacement Thermometer Probes?

Thank.

I bought a HD-377 last weekend and tried it on a pork belly. Seemed to work fine. It didn't drop out and I didn't need to rely on flaky bluetooth. I'm happy enough with the buy for now.

Cheers

COS - Which Charcoal/Lump Charcoal?

Hi Folks, Probably against what a lot of people say (& some people don't seem to think is a problem), I have gotten my hands on a Cheap Offset Smoker. I plan to fire it up this weekend and have a play with a piece of Pork (either neck or belly). As I have used Charcoal Briquettes in the past, with a...

Re: Pulled Pork for beginners, by a beginner.

Hi Folks,

Thought I would post here. After my success on my first Pulled Pork, I'd like to try it again. The biggest issue with this cook is, I have been asked to serve it for lunch this Saturday.

Would it be best to cook it in on shot on Friday, or can I do it over two cooks?

Cheers

Re: Doesn't look like much, but, boy was it tasty! My first attempts at Smoking (pulled pork)

Thanks Davo, As for another cooker, I think if we get a handle on this, another cooker would definitely be on the wish list. I had looked at offset smokers and had even thought of getting one of those cheapies off of My Deal and such, but thought I would try like this first. I gather, though, that a...

Re: Doesn't look like much, but, boy was it tasty! My first attempts at Smoking (pulled pork)

Thanks. I think we got the smoke just right. It smoked for around 1 1/2 to 2 hours and had a decent flavour. Now I need to decide what I want to do next! I am thinking of something beef. I see I can get Brisket in the Central Markets for around $14 a KG. Not sure if that is a good price or not. Cheers

Hold your head up proud mate, I would be happy to eat that. You did great Thanks! I have to admit, it did come out better than I expected, especially the smoky flavour. I only added a handful of wood chips, which was burnt within the first 1.5 hours. of the cook. I now need to think of something el...

Replacement Thermometer Probes?

Hi Folks, I have been using a BB Q Chef (BBQ's Galore brand, I believe) remote digital thermometer for a few years now, but unfortunately, it appears that the wire in the probe is broken. Does anyone know the best place to get replacement probes? I went into BBQ's Galore today and the only probes th...

Well, that is the feeling I've got looking at that picture! Believe me, the taste was much better then the picture! & the amate...

Hi from Adelaide - Wanting to learn smoking

Just thought I would pop in and say hi! I'm from Adelaide's Southern Suburbs. I (or more the the point, my wife and I) have been your typical back yard BBQers for a while, including roasts first in a kettle and then a Weber Q. As a matter of fact, 90% of all our meat is now cooked outside on the Q. ...
