Re: Tips on the Hark Tri Fire

Yeah an offset doesn't really lend itself well to an unmanned cook. I normally get a small fire going and just tend to it every hour or so. Have a Maverick with alarms set for when the pit temp gets too high to too low for what ever I'm cooking. Then I just sit in front of the TV with a beer and get...

Re: pork belly - pulling technique?

I didn't cook to temp... I just cooked to feel... Once the probe went in like butter I knew it was done and I pulled it off the smoker and placed it in the esky in towels until the gf got home. It was at about 165f when I was happy with the colour and wrapped it in foil and continued cooking... no i...

Re:

But to answer my original question.. To get a pulled texture for pork belly.. This would have to be braised correct? You can pull pork belly just by throwing it on the smoker without the need to braise. I did some on the weekend without much problem... I did wrap it for the last hour or so as I was...

Re: Making Smoked Bacon

I was just thinking last night that I really need to give making bacon a go... log on here and find this great tutorial at the top of my page :D

Saw on the weekend that my local Asian grocery store carries pink salt so might give it a go making the whole cure and rub from scratch.

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

I'm with Ali on giving your bread as much time as possible to proof. Just like BBQ, your bread will benefit from the low n slow train of thought. I like to make a poolish the night before, equal parts flour and water with just a pinch of yeast. Let this work away for a good 14 hours or so overnight....

Re: Butchers regulated out of business

It's the same trying to buy milk to make cheese....you can't get raw milk! Chris I think there's a company in Perth that sells raw milk... It's pretty expensive and apparently not for consumption... They get away with it because they sell it as a cosmetic product for people to bathe in or some such...

Re: What Did You Cook Part 11 - January 1 2015

Through a couple of pork bellies on the Hark on the weekend for an Asian inspired pulled pork belly. Was hoping to get one big slab of belly but got to the butchers too late and only the sales staff were left so ended up with two smaller pieces. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a44/SilentBoB_2005/Sm...

That's crazy! Must be run by a bunch of vegans! States should be getting behind independent butchers, not driving them out of business!

Re: Whats the Best Knife for Cutting Raw Meat?

I've been thinking about this Mr J, and for sure Bjorn will have some Sakai makers in the store. Also looked up a Japanese map, bit of a trip from the CBD which is where i thought he was located because of the business name. Take your passport for duty free prices mate! Lucky sod! Cheers mate.

Kiwi brand knife from the two dollar shop sharpened on a cheap sharpener that takes slivers of metal off. Razor sharp and you can buy one every week and still be ahead of almost any other brand :roll: Oh really? I have some Japanese master crafted knives that are 27 years old, I have used them, enj...

Re: Another Hark Tri-Fire Owner

I used wood in the Hark for the first time last week and was amazed at how easy it was to keep the temp stable. I did throw a large log on at the start and once that got burning I threw the meat on and it kept stable for a good couple of hours until it burned through the log enough for the temps to ...
