Re: Webber kettle repairs

I must say that I've never heard of that problem before, mainly with the legs coming out of the mounting sockets as they're only a press fit.
What about a cable tie or a wire tie between the rack and the leg?

Re: oyster blade in the akorn

G'day Big Craig, I don't have experience with that cut of meat, but I have a bit of experience with the Dragon kamado (BBQ Galore version of the Akorn). How much cooking time have you done with the Akorn? I only ask as you may already have the basics down pat and I don't want you to think I'm tellin...

Re: Webber kettle repairs

Do you mean the charcoal grate? If so, I bent mine ever so gently up with a pair of pliers to make them protrude into the centre further.

Re: Hi from the west of Melb

The cheapie option should be fine. The biggest difference between a Weber kettle and a knock off would be the quality of the materials and construction, and the longevity. What have you got to lose, apart from $90 (kettle, heat beads and fire lighters)? It might be the start of an inspiring journey ...

Re: Start off charcoal

G'day GG, that charmate smoker is only 41cm across, where a standard Weber kettle is 57cm. Not that I'm trying to sway you either way, but you get a fair bit more cooking real estate on a kettle and kettles are a bit more versatile than a vertical/bullet type smoker. Bunnings have a knock off kettle...

Re: Hi from the west of Melb

G'day GG and welcome aboard. Probably the cheapest way to get into cooking with charcoal is to score yourself a Weber kettle, or a knock off version. Council kerbside cleanups seem to be where you can get one for free, otherwise, check out gumtree, ebay and your local paper for second hand ones. Onc...

Re: BBQ?

If you want a portable charcoal grill with cover, you can't go past a Weber Go Anywhere, you'll often see them referred to as a WGA on the site. You can fit a whole bag of heat beads inside them, so they're very convenient. You can get a set of cast iron grills for them if you want to, especially go...

Re: BBQ?

We had the smaller Weber Q, not the baby, but the next size up I think. The burners, on full, just looked pissey. The mid size Q has always been a bit under powered, as it has the same single burner as the baby Q, so more area to heat up with the one burner. The family Q, the biggest of the three h...

G'day Tim and welcome aboard.
We don't have a lot of members from the USA, so it will be cool to get a perspective on BBQ from another country .
The forum has been updated recently and it's super easy to attach photos now, so click and attach at will.
All the best,

Re: Kamado as pizza oven

One of the best 'tricks' is to use semolina on your pizza peel. You only need a pinch spread over the peel and it acts like ball bearings under the pizza. You can rotate and move the pizza around like its floating on air without even touching it and it helps to give a bit of crunch to the base. The ...
