Pork loin on the baby q tonight. Nearly 2kgs worth fed 4 adults and 3 younger ones. Even have some leftovers for breakfast.

Love the performance of the baby q on pork.
Crackle comes out perfect every time. You know it's right when you knock it with your knuckle and you get that hollow sound.

Hi Tasmaniac65,
I can only speak for the baby q as that is all I have but I have found it to be an excellent bbq for cooking pork and getting great crackling.
Sorry I cant help you with BBQ temp as I never measure it and only check internal temp towards the end when I lift the lid.
After cooking it a few times now I have found the best method for me is to heat it up for about 15 minutes at full temp. Then depending on how big the piece is I leave it on high for a while. This piece for example was nearly 2kg. From memory last night I left this one on high for about 40 minutes.

I then turned it down to halfway and left it for about another 40 minutes. After that I had a quick peek at it to make sure it was going ok, lid back down and left it for about another 20-30 minutes.
From memory it went on about 5.45 and came of about 7-7.15 pm. Smaller piece would be less time.
Internal was at 172F when I checked towards the end with the PT 100.
They say you must learn your BBQ and I think I'm getting close with the baby q. I usually use 3 layers of foil under the trivet which by the way is the charcoal grill for the GA.
Depends on the meat as well. One piece I could only get about half of the crackle right.

That crackling looks amazing - it's also worthy of the "cooking with gas" as an example to the naysayers!

I get near-perfect crackling every time on the Weber kettle - using the roti ring & charcoal.
It's become a "trademark" and as such, and I had to cook 6 legs over the Easter weekend for various gatherings..... As usual, the kettle didn't disappoint.

But now you've got me wanting to try my next pork roast on the Q200. Hmmm, maybe Sunday night's dinner.....

They look great to me. Just a suggestion though, have you tried cooking the wings without the foil tray ?

Went up to Daylesford to day to have lunch on the baby q.
Tried two different sites and the place was swarming with wasps at both places.
So bugger!
Back in the car for a drive home starving for an early dinner.
