  1. I have maternity belt - it is stretched to its max now! I may just stop wearing belts! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Just stop already - that is too good and keeps on giving! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Nailed it - well played on first cook! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Bloody hell that looks good - I need to stop reading this forum; too much goodness to try out is not helping my belt size! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Correct - it’s not the annoying I am worried about but the security who may ban the thing (you are not supposed to have a bbq let alone a smoker!) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Here is the rest of the day, It was as epic as planned and more importantly I didn’t get security up asking about a smoker and I checked with some neighbours and they couldn’t smell it. Stealth condo smoking is here to stay! 98CBBE5C-0046-41B2-8CA1-5B77C60771D1.MOV
  7. Today has been a long day; I will update again when the Guinness and Jamison’s has worn off. Till then trust me, Irish wives will make your life shorter but the food is great and so is the banter. Sláinte
  8. Update to come shortly - I am well into to my “Last” pint for the “last” time. Epic day Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Morning update: I feel like I have a one year old in the house! The brisket finished up at 3, then the butts at about 4;30. I am knackered. I have had to swap refreshments again to coffee until morning tea. Snags are now on, since the big cuts finished sooner than I planned I swapped wood over to cherry. Life was easier when I always bought meat from the same butcher that came from the same farm; it’s bloody Guess work now on timing! The meat is all wrapped up and in bed though: it will be well rested and still warm for lunch (brisket is in a prewarmed cast iron tray, butts I will just reheat worst case but they should be ok: it’s supposed to get to 34 so it isn’t exactly freezing here!) briskets butts All wrapped up in nearly every towel I own meat gloves were handy last night: that brisket was gorgeous taking out off the grill snags:leftt is chorizo and right is pork (it is Paddy’s day after all)
  10. Nice! I have a can of make America juicy again for morning tea. They do a great porter as well (not the one I had last night); it sells out here almost instantly. I’ll keep an eye out for Twigs & Berries: sounds awesome
  11. This is turning into a marathon of sorts: I am literally smoking on the balcony of a condo and I can’t escape the Smokey goodness; normally ok but my eyes are dried out and I am pretty sure I now look stoned. doors are closed and everybody else is inside including the dog. I have had to change fluid options. I am going to get some vizene next big smoke. if only I could post smells: it’s intense out here
  12. Everybody needs one of these if you use lump. It is juicer than you, don’t fight it
  13. Yeah - it comes here but it costs a bomb! I haven’t had a lamb shoulder in ages; they are like 150 here! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I heard on the news the prices have gone through the roof at home on lamb? I hope that’s not true? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks mate. General update: Whilst my critical job of sitting outside tending to the bbq continues. With the smoke attachment, I have worked out that every now and then it is worth putting a metal skewer through the side hole and making sure there is a gap between the bottom of the pipe and chips and ash(smoke flow picks up again when I do it - awesome accessory BTW). It is why I must suffer through this tedious task alone outside in the freezing cold (only 31 today). If only the boss would appreciate my sacrifices! Listening to paul Kelly and just cracked open this awesome sour ale
