Bentley, The yabbie is what you guys call a mudbug. Marron are much bigger and more similar to a maine lobster but from fresh water. West Australian Marron are probably the best tasting crustacean in the world in my opinion.

And if you all will educate me again, is there not something called a Yabba or the like, is it somewhat the same or is it more on the Lobster side?
Yeah above my pay grade too. It was a family holiday in the south west of western australia and a bit of a 1 off. Marron from a local Pemberton producer, and the truffle from Manjimup, which has become one of the biggest truffle producers outside of France. You can look those towns up, but it's a truely stunning area to see.

Marron are found only in Southern WA, lives in the fresh water rivers. Would be the size of a small lobster.

Yabby - they are native to Eastern States but you will find them in most farm dams in the wheat belt of WA. We have them in the lake on our family farm. Prawn size I guess.

There are other natives like koonacks and gilgies, but yabbies grow faster hence why they are stocked in dams.

This will help

Bloody delicious freshwater crayfish they are the Marron. The recreational fishing season for them is only open for 2 weeks of the year!
It's a good time of the year for camping in the southwest of WA and catching Marron and trout from our pristine Forrest rivers

Just a smear of minced garlic + pepper and salt.

Keeping it simple. :)

Hi Chris

In the pic there is a bottle of organic cider in the background, that went beautifully with the marron, as would pinot grigio, as would chardonnay, as would SSB, heck, everything goes with marron.

Chris, got a camper trailer? I've got 160 Ah of batteries in mine, figure that will run a DC for quite some time - and that is giving me some ideas, where can I get my hands on a DC? I have keys to my brothers place, and the pellets you sold him are in there.... let me check when he flies out next, who's up for camping and marroning???

I really think it's one of those things you need to try at least once if you can (easy for us in the west to say), but if you get the chance, give them a go.

First try with some Cape Grim Brisket, first cook just a point. Early days for myself and Brisket but not a bad outcome.

Geezus wept that looks awesome Chris, puts a horn on a jellyfish, are they rib eyes ?

If you cooked that on the GMG would you kindly give me the profile, also where can I source ancho powder, I assume that's what you mixed into the butter

cheers Mick

Send me an email Mick, I'll send you back the fact sheet on making the butter. Rib Eye was cooked on Grill Grates in my GMG Jim Bowie....no profile for that, just basic grilling.

I'd be down for a group cape grim brisket buy in Metro Perth. Wonder if it we could fit that in logistically for the Bunno crew as well.

The wife's off to Tas for work next week and I've asked her to bring me back a couple in her suitcase, but I don't like my chances. :lol:

You can buy from the distributor in Perth...and they can tell you what butchers stock it: Bass Strait Gourmet.
