Hello from Melbourne!


Braai Joe

Recommended Posts

Hello from Melbourne, Australia!

Being a South African I've grown up grilling (braaing we call it) on open wood and charcoal fires - it's a national past time and something just in our DNA! After much reading I decided to add to the versatility and go for a BIG JOE! 

 

Just a note to introduce and also to give a huge shout out to all the members who's contributions have been invaluable in making the decision and ensuring that the bug has bitten! John Setzler, ckreef, Jack., keeperovdeflame, KismetKamado, Ben S etc.  you are all an awesome source of knowledge, tips and ideas.

And - 1st steaks were great, but the whole chicken next was out of this world.

 

Very excited to get stuck into it and "braai" on my Joe!

Cheers,

James

Welcome Braai ( How is that pronounced?) This site was a great help for me both back when I  got my Kamado and now. I think BBQing id in the dna of everyone some of us more than others.  Need some pics of a "Braai". 

Thanks will do! It's pronounced "bry" - any open wood or coal fire is basically a braai in SA. Just need fire, meat, beer and hungry company!

Thanks, very glad your happy with your new kamado and enjoying your entry into the world of kamado cooking. Just something about kamado chicken, isn't there.  I cooked for years on a webber kettle and gassers, (My favorite was a Australian grill called a  Captian Cook. Next door neighbor where I used to live is still cooking on it.) and I thought I turned out a pretty good whole chicken. My wife's comment upon tasting my first kamado chicken was, "Really, you cooked this by yourself"?. Great stuff. Happy Cooking.

This is pretty much exactly what happened to me - takes it to the next level!

So much good cooking ahead. We've got a renovation ahead with 6 months of no kitchen - at this point I'm pretty happy about that! This bad boy is going to get a workout!
