    The bbq thread

    Ozzy got me thinking as I am not long sorting out a new BBQ or well BBQs, so advice or what you like opinions would be cool.

    Im thinking of getting an offset smoker or at least a smoker slow cook BBQ.
    When you start looking around the choice and price range is amazing from 100.00 for 7k plus not going the latter you could buy a small african village for that sort of money.555

    So is anyone out there using a smoker of some description?
    Would you go off set of Komodo style?

    Like Ozzy I will have a burner for wok work but wont have an open grill only a flat plate.

    American BBQ culture seems to be coming our way big time so show us what you got would love to see ideas and what is cooked.
    Love Ozzys OD kitchen what set ups do you guys have?

    Why dont you and Joy come try ours out and we can discuss this. We always love a bit of Thai food mixed with the Filipna BBQ. It got a good test run last night.

    Hang on Oz, I need to book a flight down for this bbq

    Be interested to hear what you decide on Wabbits. Why a smoker though?

    Any oven type bbq with at least 2 separate burners can slow cook, roast and smoke. The Bunnings cheap Cn stuff will not last and does a poor job anyway so be guided by Oz.

    Our new bbq (on order) is from Udon Thani custom maker (without rotisserie) with double wall SS lid and hot rocks.



    To slow cook, you place food on, say, left side, with right hand burner(s) adjusted for temperature. Lid down, and away you go. To smoke food, it's a similar scenario except you place the wood shavings/sawdust above the low flame burner.

    Yes I hear you and hence the thread why or why not..
    Ok reasoning to this point.
    Gas fired might not allow for smoky flavours to the same degree as a charcoal style, their inherent light construction does not keep the heat as well.
    or go the komodo with ceramic that would be like cooking hungi style but relatively small and not cheap, well neither are for a bit of quality.

    I'm a 3 burner gas under volcanic rocks guy with a lid.
    Quick, smokeless and just outside the kitchen window for easy access.

    Hot plates are for frying, open grilles are for BBQing.
    50/50 if you must.

    I agree with you regarding hotplates... could never see the need a home bbq. In the bush maybe ok for bacon/eggs/onion.

    @Wabbits - a good friend of mine had a Komodo and swore by it. Funny thing was I never saw him use it. He and his wife always came down (6 doors) to our place and enjoyed cooking on my Namco gas bbq/oven. Gas and hot rocks is very convenient although Jo and I do love cooking over charcoal too.

    My worry is with the komodo it might be a fad and I might get sick of using it...Like a coffee mechine thrown a couple of those out over the years.5555

    Sounds like the issue is more wife training than the BBQ. But you been together awhile now and retraining will be hard.....55

    I love the simple "pot" BBQ with the little cage that flips for the meet


    I am useless at BBQ'ing
    I just don't know how to grill correctly

    When I was in Phoenix it was perfect
    I make fantastic marinades.....
    So I marinated the meats and my friend Darren was the expert griller

    I love nothing better than cooking and supping red wine...But then my cooking generally revolves around roasts and veg pretty simple...Nothing like watching the mrs wip up a curry from scratch that looks difficult.

    I've got a Weber Q, a flat hotplate and a charcoal burning Weber.

    I can cook just about anything on what I've got, but it's all academic really - if you've got the $ and reckon a komodo would work - get one !

    Smokers are cheap too, so same same - got the $ = go for it........

    The choices are wide and varied Obes might have to employ the Kiss principle.555

    Thats a nice barby but its not stainless steel.
    I got a 60litre ss. beer keg split in half and hinged, I cut ceramic coated grill to fit inside and rest on the hinge bolts(I'll try and get photo together), its perfect for charcoal or wood fire, wood fire burnt down IMHO is better then charcoal if you got the right wood, like durian.

    IMG_20180421_120423.jpg heres the bbq, the rim from the top section I inverted underneath for legs.
    it will do 6 steaks or 18 sausages, a leg a lamb or a whole chicken pancaked issan style.
    For us being a family of 3 its perfect and uses only a little bit of wood to cook a few steaks.
    A 90litre would be better for a larger family (5 or 6 people), a 200litre if you want to do pig on the spit.
