Well here we are again on the first day of a new year.
My BBQ resolutions are:
Cook more BBQ’s (well I cooked a lot last year but didn;t blog) and blog about them
Update the Aussie BBQ blog (I upgraded to the latest WordPress) and install a new theme
Start doing Youtube BBQ videos (I learn a lot from others so maybe others can learn from little ‘ol me)
Increase my participation on the forum; again something I like doing so…
I received a bag of charcoal from Riverina charcoal and after a few weeks I finally found some to to review. (I had to make time for the photographing and ensuring my KK was nice and low on charcoal so I could easily swap to Riverina only.
It comes in a paper bag (a difference from the usual plastic ones) which I guess is a bit more environmentally friendly…
It’s been a while but my Weber chimney has finally given up (after 4 years not too bad). I searched and searched but could not find any Australian retailer that stocked these chimneys. On the forum I found out that Heat Beads also has barbecue starter (as opposed to a chimney) so I decided to get me an Aussie one! I could have ordered one from Amazon as well but I like to change things up!
Anyway I did compare my “old” and trusty Weber chimney with the Heat Beads barbecue starter and the differences are as follows:
Hi one one our posters (and manufacturers of charcoal) send me the following photo’s of the charcoal manufacturing process.
Looks like an interesting method:
1. You get some wood
Just a small post (again)…
Our plans for Australia day are:
An Aussie brunch (snags + bacon and eggs on the barbie)
Followed by the beach
An afternoon bit of BBQ-ing with lamb.
That should keep the BBQ’s going for the day!
Well, I ordered a new instant thermometer for my good friend Chris (Urbangriller) in Perth. I should hopefully arrive next week and I will out it through it’s paces and blog a review about it!!
I’m also replacing my trusty Weber chimney with an aussie Heatbeads one (if BBQs galore have th new version instead of the “old” one which seems to be smaller. Again this purchaes will be celebrated with a blog review.
I did a couple of BBQ’s this week, ribs, pork chops and salmon (no photo’s) As soon as I can get my eye-fi to wor (which should make my photo transfer a whole lot simpler) I’ll do some more bloggin with photo’s.
In the meantime happy Q-ing and blog u soon!
My first blog for 2010!!!
Well the idea is to blog at least once a week. This may prove hard but I’ll def give it a go.
A big change for us is that we’re moving to sunny Queensland (Noosa) which is great for my BBQ-ing as it is an even more outdoosy environment than Sydney!
It will mean that both my babies Weber Summit and Komodo Kamado neeed to be moved, good luck to the removalists! (photo’s of the BBQ move will be a separate blog post I reckon).
Anyway if all goes well I’ll be BBQ-ing more and blogging more.
CU all in 2010 (weekly!)
Well I decided to cook a chook this weekend. I actually prepared the marinade on Saturday and kept it in the fridge overnight. I also wanted to use the rotisserie to see if it made a difference. Anwyay results and recipe (easy) below. Continue reading
Well had some time today (finally) to do a blog post.
I have been BBQ-ing but just haven’t been able to find the time to blog (although I did tweet photo’s on previous occassions). Yeah I know need to MAKE time to do these blogs.
Anyway here goes, decided to try some jerk pork tenderloins. Went to my local favourite butcher and got 2 medium seized pork tenderloins. Also got some corn (always easy) and some chestnuts (just to try them out). Continue reading
We cooked some mussels tonight with fresh bread and a salad on the side. We haven’t cooked mussels in a while and decided to try a new recipe (using the gas Weber) for a change. In this case we used mussels that were pre-packed in a 1 kg bag (and cleaned); they were excellent! Continue reading
