  1. Sodastream

    We had this until we got a new machine with new bottles. The new bottles even worked well in the old machine. I'm guessing the bottles develop some extra flex with age and don't hold the pressure as well
  2. At these prices, I could fly to the US, buy one and fly back almost for less than the price over here
  3. DIY security system - Anyone else?

    I bought my first system wholesale through a friend of mine. It was kinda overkill but there were no really blind entry exit points to the house. I walked into a smaller bank branch and saw the same system there so I was pretty happy with that. My current system was through a security company and I'm really not happy with the coverage or monitoring. All these companies seem interested in is collecting their monthly fee and, every couple of years, letting you know your battery is going flat. When I move to NBN in a few weeks and have to think about it again I may just build my own system with either a 3G or VoIP dialer.
  4. We learnt it at a continental level, big old continent about the size of Oz. Oh, and I think I could find Disney Land and Disney World, aren't they where the politicians come from?
  5. I love it. Of course, the third one could be a kiwi living in Oz trying to remember US geography.
  6. Timberline Ribs

    Now I am thinking ribs for dinner this weekend.
  7. Muffaletta

    My eyes were drawn to the watermelon soda, that sounds very refreshing.
  8. I was thinking the same thing but, can I have one without the mushrooms?
  9. Great suggestion. Wonder if I can swing the airfares past the Minister of Finance! That would be so much fun, "just popping at to the sports store, see you in four days". These were only cooked at 180c (350-400F) so I don't think I would have needed to reseason if my wife hadn't been so efficient on the cleanup.
  10. Pizza Fail - Twice in one night.

    Must have been a weekend for pizza mishaps. That still looks yummy though.
  11. After a bad showing with supermarket pizza earlier in the week, we decided to go for the homemade and use the Akorn to cook it. We had a lot of fun with dough sticking to the metal peel we have, so I am now in the market for a wooden one as I ended up using a wooden chopping board to shape the pizzas. Also, we didn't have time to make John's pizza dough, but my wife has a recipe with a very similar water content that came out remarkably well. These were all cooked around 200C for about 10 minutes. Anyway, I will let the pictures speak for themselves. First off was garlic with rosemary and cheese. The rosemary came off one of our bushes, cant beat the taste. Next up was my sons meat pizza. This was all meat I think: And finally, one with "the lot" kind of. Toned down the meat from my son's and added tomatoes, onion, seasoning. I didn't notice someone being cheeky with the shadows on this one, little bugger. I have to say, looking at the pics that these all tasted a lot better than they look. No money shot on these ones, will go for presentation the next time. And I must remember to re-season my grill tonight. My wife thought she was doing the right thing, washing the insert from the centre of the grill in hot soapy water. It is a good time for a re-season anyway.
  12. Sodastream

    We have one as well and use it often, both for carbonated water and the soda stuff. It all started as a lower sugar alternative to the gut rot they sell at the supermarket and escalated from there. We only pay $15-$20 for a refill here as well, which equates to about US$2 doesn't it. Well maybe not, but something that is actually cheaper over here.
  13. LEM Jerky Cannon Snack Sticks

    Yeah, at the moment we use pre-packaged seasoning/cure. We got various different ones with our dehydrator.
  14. LEM Jerky Cannon Snack Sticks

    I'm just waiting for the season/cure recipe. We often do jerky in our dehydrator and I am guessing that the cure would carry across.
  15. Mushroom road kill

    Yeah, it's the most common way I do chook on the Akorn. Often as a last minute thing as my son has become a BBQ addict.
