Re: First loaves turned out ok but does anyone have a good b

Hmm, If you used 7gm packs would be about right, I don't use those prefer fresh or Lowan bulk dried yeast where it's a teaspoon per loaf as a guide but really there's no hard and fast rule and a Jamie Oliver recipe would be using UK conventions I'd guess. This is a great resource for messing about w...

Think I was being facetious, not too much good beer brewed in Surrey, more horse country :)

Re: Where to buy weber charcoal baskets.

:)

And a green one !?!

A few members are gong to be "green" with envy :)

I sort of understand those gas kits for fire ban days but honestly, if it's that hot there are other ways to eat - does it fit the smaller BBQ if you really need to ? I know absolutely nothing about them :)

Re: Toying with a pellet smoker

ah, I like the sound of that. Any reason I cant find a price on a yoder anywhere? :) If you have to ask... ? :) Give the man a call, but if you are serious do be sitting down. From what I've seen worth every cent but quality usually is :) I have to admit been looking a a DC myself for our modest ne...

Yeah....

I stay away from welding because my kid bro puts me to shame every time, so I just get him to do it but yours looks pretty damned good - better than I'd ever do :)

Re: Wobbly Weber Q

Hmm,

I'd be having a chat to where you bought it.

I have a 200, much sturdier than that, something is not right, could be in assembly, could be something broken but I would not be happy.

Re: Interesting review of Maverick wireless thermometers

Hmm, I seem to find Bluetooth to be massively unreliable outside of a couple of meters in various applications, nothing related to this product, just the technology. Seems to me that because it had few engaged supporters it just has not matured. I tend to predict it will just fall by the wayside, ju...

Re: Where to buy weber charcoal baskets.

:)

Before you go shelling out didn't someone, might have been UG, point out a while ago that Ikea do SS cutlery drainers that are perfectly ok as charcoal baskets?

I could well be wrong but in the end, it's just a basket :)

Re: Where to buy weber charcoal baskets.

Yeah, they sort of fit ok. As someone suggested in your other thread just keep an eye out, Gumtree, hard rubbish, guarantee a 57cm will turn up for $0 to maybe $100 :) I try not to look at all the accessories, especially being currently self-employed in a very big downturn industry but they are hard...

Re: Weber Q Rotisserie anyone using it? got a probe sorted?

:)

There are just so many variables Tas, like the height of the rack, where you impale the roast, what the rack is sitting on etc :)

It's sort of like looking for space for leftovers in the fridge and finding you spaced the shelves wrong :) (I just had that problem :) )

Re: Oh...My...God!

:) Slowly I'm getting a picture of how you are laying out your fire, and understanding that you do not have the baskets with this kettle. They are hardly a necessity, a lot around here just ditch them anyway but when starting with a kettle they do put the fire(s) in a distinct place in the cavity. T...
