Re: What is your best dish in a Kamado?

Not a specific dish, but chicken generally.

For other things like brisket, pulled pork, seared steaks etc it's possible to get a result like what you'd get from a commercial establishment, but for whatever reason chicken (done almost any style) is always better than anything I could buy.

Re: Tagine

Is there any reason why I can't use a tagine in my kamado? Obviously I would have take the height of the tagine into account, and it would be a low temperature cook with indirect heat. Has anybody done this, and if so what temperature do you recommend. I would be cooking beef. No problem at all, bu...

Re: Bring on the smoke :)

I've also got a Kamado Joe, and haven't had any issue with the gaskets - 2 years on now & still going strong. PS try the peri peri chicken.

Re: Quick advice - honey soy drumsticks

Load tapatalk on the tablet and then posting pics is easy. Good to know. I actually have tapatalk on that thing. Would've saved me about half an hour installing stuff & transferring images across. Can you tell I don't use that tablet much? It's really just for keeping the kids quiet at restaurants ...

Honey soy drumsticks

Turned out really well. The 30 minutes took the drumsticks to mid/high 60s internally, then with a sear and a rest = right into the 70-75 "cooked but juicy" zone. Have a pic but all kinds of incompatibility issues between this computer & the tablet that took the photo. Could solve it but now we're o...

Re: Quick advice - honey soy drumsticks

Yep, Thermapen at the ready & home brew poured.

No point keeping it in a...

Quick advice - honey soy drumsticks

Have: 1. drumsticks at room temp, marinated in honey + soy etc. 2. divide & conquer with half indirect, half direct 3. kamado at 180C Thoughts are to cook indirect for about 30, then direct (turning) for a bit, then back to indirect until up to safe internal temperature. Any thoughts? Please be quick.

Re: Charcoal suppliers

Yeah, it would help a lot if you said where you were. I've been going to BBQ Aroma now for a while. They're pretty convenient to where I live in the inner west of Sydney. Have a variety of different sorts of charcoals and are happy to explain what each type is all about. There was also that mob in B...

Re: first cook...a few small probs...need advice

Actually, this is what you want to happen. Hm, good points. What I meant was more like "watch that if it swings closed, you open it back up to where it was again - don't walk away & let the heat die down" - that's a real PITA when you've gone to all the trouble to get to an accurate temperature in ...
