Got the chance finally to do some cooking and had a great time of it. Three nights in a row.

Friday was a day off to look after the little cherubs and I found a pack of diced lamb in the fridge. Eldest son was away so the easy on the spice rule didn't apply.

Xinjiang lamb skewers. Heavy on the chilli flakes, szechuan pepper and ground peppr, some cumin, garlic and ginger. Cooked on the gasser because there wasn't enough cooking to warrant charcoal.

Image

Made up a batch of fried rice and it was a great feed.

Image


Saturday the big one was home and the twins were away so it was medium spicy. My take on Cambodian Black Pepper chicken.

Image

Left over fried rice saved me a heap of time.

Image

Sunday I tried something new and something I've done before. Beef roast covered in magic dust and into the kettle, nothing new there and I tried something from a book I got for my birthday. Hot Smoked Potatoes.

Rubbed spuds with olive oil, salt and pepper and into the kettle for a bit over an hour, with a big banksia nut for lots of smokiness.


Image

Split in half once cooked and sour cream added to the centre with some chopped chives. Served with the roast beef and salad.

Image


Of course, I'm away with work for a few days and leaving all the left overs for the family. But there's always next weekend.

Happy New Year All!!

Here are some pics of recent cooks I've done, not much BBQ unfortunately, have been missing those summer staples of mine.

I saw tubers of turmeric at the shops, and you can do worse than a Malaysian Chicken and potato curry.
It is just a ripper, the soft spuds in the curry, I really love Nonya curries!
Image

Then I made a Laotian Pork salad with sticky rice, another favourite of ours, in fact, I will be making another batch today!

Image

Here is a leftover idea that just rocks, for those that want to try.
I used smoked Pulled Pork and made a thin corn chowder with it, what a great match, the smokey pork and the corn!
Image
I gave it a quick whizz with the stick blender but left plenty for texture. Great soup!
Bugger. Forgot to post my Ginger Citrus lime and orange hickory smoked Ham!

Doing this more often!

Love it when you can add extra "spice" to the dish. Slowly building my kids up to it.

Buc, do you have a recipe/method for this that you can share? Is that pork butt? Deboned leg? Looks and sounds delicious.


Not too much to add today. Kids were not that hungry and they wanted sausages and fried onions. Bit of lamb fat for me..ahhhh...delicious.

gnol, Couldn't be easier.
Boneless leg ham, you slice outer, diamonds or spiral, stud with cloves.
I used an IXL product I saw on special, ginger lime marmalade I think it was called. Thinned it with honey and tawny port.
Smoked it at 220f with a hunk of hickory.
Most people prefer fruit woods.
I wanted to pull it off at 160f but being a noob with the thermometer, I set the alarm but neglected to turn it on :oops:

Pulled at 175.
It was fine and sensational flavour!
Will be repeating often.

Starting to really get into the Baby Q now.
Cooked this piece of boneless pork shoulder.
Nearly perfect crackle. Close enough, just a couple of small pieces that did not get there. There is always next time. :lol:
