  1. Maybe amazing ribs are paid reviews? Although they rank the products, I haven’t seen them bag a product out, instead, they stay kinda quiet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So Tony, with the agrodolce sauce, are you marinating your meat in this, or using it as a basting/ post cooking sauce? Yep, from the little reading I have done, this is going to be a fun rabbit hole. Extremely versatile. I like the look of Rebecca Blackwell's taste buds. https://alittleandalot.com/agrodolce/ She has a few other tasty looking recipes.
  3. Thanks Tony. I just looked up agrodolce. That’s a whole new rabbit hole I’m going to have to dive into. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. After putting another lamb leg on last night I noticed we had plenty of fruit 2 days short of a trip to the compost. Sliced and peeled 6 apples. Strawberries, blueberries and 6 bananas. Placed them in a baking dish and poured 1 cup of apple cider vinegar mixed with 2 tablespoons of honey over them. Sprinkled a bit of cinnamon over the top and put it in the kk when I pulled the lamb and shut the kk down. The residual heat baked the fruit beautifully in 30- 40 mins. Tart vinegar, sweet honey, mixed fruit....... almost no sugar cos we had it with ice cream. I’ll take photos of the next version..... probably within a week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Not sure how many tea drinkers are out there? One of my favourites is Lapsang Souchong https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lapsang_souchong It has a wonderful smoky flavour. I tried to replicate it by emptying a packet of loose leaf black tea onto a tray and gave the cold smoker it's first run- no pics sorry. It turned out pretty good. This packet will last me 6 weeks or so and it's definitely something I'll refine with different teas and different woods. I won't be trying to smoke with pine. They must have different pine species in China
  6. Bruce the little message icon at the top of your page- like a cartoon character statement circle. Click on that and it will take you to all your messages, read them, respond, delete,..... whatever you want. Mac if they are mud wasps, not sure I'd want it hatching or you will end up with mud nests all over your house. They also get tougher to clean out as the mud dries.
  7. Yum MacKenzie. That looks like a mud wasp nest. Was there a small larvae inside when you poked it out? Or a few little dead spiders or other dead insects? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Aussie this cook really resonates with me. I love the challenge of taking what is considered rubbish meat and turning it into food for royalty. Quite literally turning a pigs ear into a silk purse! It looked like there was a fair bit of shank in that knuckle, and a good find. For years here the cheap cut was brisket, until the low n slow started taking off only 10 years ago. I see now locally the cheap meat is lamb flaps. Any ideas how to cook these? My old man reckons you have to double fry them, surely there is a better way? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Tony b my roti motor rotates each way by just switching on and off. I had made sure it rolled in the direction so the tip screw would tighten rather than loosen. I was worried It might drop in the fire and burn before I realised. I can only think there was minor wall expansion. It only takes about 2mm to stop it. How good are those spear tips? Screw it in, Slides through the meat, then I changed it back to the roundish tip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Sensational tekabo. The spit came together easy enough cos I’ve been watching everyone here do it for years. One little issue, through the cook the walls or the rod must have expanded. Despite setting the rod length right before loading up, there was not enough spring movement to take it off. I had to play with pliers to shorten the rod slightly while the lamb started dripping into the fire. It took about a minute to adjust. Glad it wasn’t any longer. Flavours were great, fluked the internal temp. Just a hint of smoke The lamb was Dorpa crossed with Meatmaster- both South African breeds that are becoming popular amongst farmers here. 8 months old and very tender. Lamb is definitely my favourite..... and there is plenty left over for sandwiches. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Getting closer! Not sure yet Mac. This photo was taken just short of 2 hours. Probably pull it off after 2.5 hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Outside of warming a large bowl of offal for the dog and the chicken thighs, and a couple of turkey legs while it was hot during the burn in, This is my first purpose cook. This lamb was grown by a friend 4 hours west of where we live. Scored, then rubbed with salt, garlic, coffee, cumin, chilli, purple crack, and some dried herbs. Started a full basket of charcoal laced with cherry chips. Haven't quite got my temps right and nudged it up to 400f before pulling it back to 350f. I don't have the Meater yet so flying a little blind on internal temps too, I'll judge it by the pull back from the bone. This is getting close. Perfect size in the 23"
