Re: Gravey Recipes

:) I somehow doubt gravy is the same here every time but sometimes I get lazy and use Bisto or Gravox but mostly I use the skimmed pan juices, the water from any boiled veg, add as much as needed. I will recommend Rice Flour in preference to anything from wheat, so much less likely to clump, even be...

Re: Flavoured butters

:) Years ago in Dallas I had a steak at some place in the downtown that had a fabulous blue cheese dressing. A friend of mine had taken them up on an "if you can eat this steak then no charge" challenge. He did but it took a while so when the chef finished he came out for a chat. I asked him about t...

Gourmet Chef and Nando's

Gourmet Chef, are a WA company in Wanneroo, not sure how long their sauces have been around but they do a coupl...

Re: Stuffing in a Chook and dangers!!!!!!

Hmm, I've always pre-cooked my stuffing anyway, usually just sage, garlic and onion, but whilst chickens can be rather dirty creatures what we buy are pretty good these days. I partly grew-up with a grandfather who raised deep-litter chickens, they were cooked in a Rayburn in the main, with cooked s...

Re: What type of Oil

I think I've just about always used olive oil, it does get a little gummy but it really depends what is being cooked, well rubbed in its fine. Lately though we've been playing with coconut oil, it can be expensive but for just two people a lot of the time not much to worry about - great flavour, esp...

Re: Bought my first real Weber Kettle

:) Something I can comment on :) My first Weber came to me in a similar manner, picked up for $10 in a yard sale. Took several hours of scrubbing to clean it up, but same deal, it was essentially preserved by neglect :) It actually lasted me years, never had to replace a thing on it, just kept it cl...

Re: Naths new addition to the Family.

:)

Mine too :)

Unfortunately their only interest in the BBQ is what I cook on it :)

Nice little collection though - puts mine to shame :)

Cheers

Re: New Member Joondalup - Perth area

:) The Digby plans are rather agricultural Ab, just cut to size sheet metal and mesh, one of the reasons I haven't built one yet is I want to make it a LITTLE more pleasant to look at :) Bit of a Catch-22, old place had a decent workshop, new one doesn't yet :) But Workmate and power under the carpo...

Re: New Member Joondalup - Perth area

;) More a little microcosm unto itself Urban, I've only just moved here, was in Leeming for many years, but, I do IT, much more business up here :) I'm waiting to see with the Q, but I doubt I'll ever abandon charcoal completely - I have some plans for a classic charcoal BBQ from Digby that I plan o...

New Member Joondalup - Perth area

:) Hey all, what a great find this place is!! I already posted a couple of things in the gas board but time to introduce myself. I've been using Weber kettles for about 25 years, had three of them but my last one is getting tired, rusty edges etc and I had been seeing the Qs around for a while. I th...

Re: Gas Bottles - Safety Considerations

Hmm, I must go post in introductions, just joined but I did want to post this: I've never bbq'd on gas before but my old kettle is rusting out, still ok for smoking for a bit but I treated myself to a Weber Q, whatever the medium size model is - the Baby seemed a bit small for what I cook. Having pi...

Re: Weber Q: Lack of storage space

Hi, I just joined the forum was looking around for some advise on the WeberQ having just bought one, I've never used gas before always a charcoal kettle so needed it :) I didn't get a trolley, seemed a bit expensive but I had a spare roll around tool box that was doing nothing, a cheapy from Deals D...
