  1. Boston Butt first attempt.

    My butcher is into BBQing so I find he has a lot of the right cuts. We tend to call it Pork Shoulder here through, not Boston Butt, or bone in pork shoulder.
  2. When is Lump Too Big?

    I had the exact opposite experience. The 10kg (22lb) box I got when I bought my Akorn (Chargriller branded) was full of huge lumps I had to break up. The 20kg bags I buy now are all petty uniform in size.
  3. Asiago Gruyere Potatoes Au Gratin

    Damn, I think that is going on my boxing day cook list! Especially as I will have homegrown potatoes, thyme and garlic to make it!
  4. Bacon and ribs

    I have recently done a couple of dry cured bacons, yet to try a brine. I picked up a really cheap slicer recently and that has made life much easier for slicing the bacon.
  5. This makes me happy

    You just made me appreciate every time I get my son out cooking on the Kamado!
  6. Aussie rack of lamb

    If you haven't done lamb before, try some cutlets or chops possibly. And make sure you don't overcook it, lamb should be rare. Oh, and lamb and rosemary are best mates!
  7. Proud...

    Yup, I used mine right through winter and into summer now (not that you can tell from the last few days). Of course, I am in Melbourne, Oz and it very rarely, if ever, dips below 0 here (32 for you guys)!
  8. Aussie rack of lamb

    Yum, haven't had a decent rack of lamb in a while! That looks really nice.
  9. Smokey baked beans

    Well, Damper is definitely Australian (although kiwi's make it too) so that's a good start.
  10. My first Akorn cook!

    Yup, mine for 225-250 is about .75 at the bottom and just that little crescent open on the top vent. Has held temp for several hours like that.
  11. Smokey baked beans

    It's only about 20 hours of flying! 16 LA to Melbourne!
  12. I decided to christen the new dutch oven today. I used my existing baked beans recipe. It was made with home made bacon, chili out of the garden and various other ingredients, My wife made some damper to go with it And the obligatory money shot:
  13. Nice looking table but freight and tax into Oz would probably be a little extreme.
  14. White Pizza with 24 Hour Cold Ferment Dough

    So for the uneducated down under (and too lazy to google today), what is a white pizza?
