  1. I had the basket loaded pretty full, but they were large pieces so a fair few gaps in between. I can get Binchotan for $2.22 per kg if brought in bulk. Kingsford is around $4.12 per kg. The new Bincho I have is more like the Kingsford briquettes in size.
  2. Congrats Jamie. I just got my BB32 a few weeks back. It is my first Kamado style grill and only took a few days of playing around with settings to feel reasonably confident. This forum is also a great resource. The key accessories that I use are welding gloves, black nitrile gives, grill floss and a MAPP touch for lighting. I was also given a Smartfire for Christmas. Only used it once but I really liked it. For eggs and stuff I uses a 12' Field Cast Iron pan. I own a ton of other cast iron, but the quality of the Field is amazing.
  3. Ohhhh..... I miss the cheapo snags from Coles or Woolies!!
  4. Will do. I also just had some more Binchotan arrive and it is smaller in size (like 2") blocks. Should be able to get more into the basket vs the larger logs I had before.
  5. I love this forum - thanks for all the responses. I have been primarily using the lower cooking grate along with half the main grate on the left side. Have the basket splitter installed and only have coals under the right lower side (see pic). I really like this setup in terms of versatility, but just struggling with the heat. I can get it hot, but generally not hot enough to get a really nice sear like I would on my Weber Kettle. I have just ordered some more charcoal as I suspected that I was not loading the basket up sufficiently. I mainly want to be able to get a really nice cha
  6. Hey Folks - Still trying to get the hang of my BB32. One of my biggest struggles is getting it hot enough to sear steak. I have been doing some reading and I think I have been using the middle grate rather than flipping the top/pizza great upside down and resting it on the charcoal basket. Would really appreciate if someone could explain this....
  7. Wishing everyone a speedy recovery Dennis!
  8. NYE Dinner. A combo of lamb shoulder & chicken drumsticks cooked over CoffeeChar. Forgot to take photos after it had been carved sorry... Too many IPAs by then
  9. Yeah. It arrived on the 24th and after a few "unboxing" struggles, I managed to get it setup. Will post some photos in the next few days.
  10. Slow cooked Victorian lamb shoulder with roast potatoes. Threw in some brussel sprouts with ham at the end, but charred those a little too much. Cooked the lamb for ~6 hours at 120c. Used a handful of mesquite chips.
  11. Spoke to the structural engineer. He wanted some measurements of the balcony, a sketch and a couple of photos. In short, he said based on his opinion and a quick check of the numbers he does not foresee any issues. He did recommend that I position it near a structural column and not on the edge of the cantilevered balcony. He said if I do want to change the position, I should consult with the engineers that designed the building. I have contacted them several times, but can't get a response. Will try again after the new year holidays.

    So I was searching the forum to try and figure out when I needed to use the heat deflectors.... Found the answer
  13. Thanks all. I have assembled a group of 8 mates - 2 tall and heavy, 1 tall and light and 5 short and heavy - they are coming over later tonight to test it out. @tekobo is that a suitable distribution?? @tony bIt is a cantilevered balcony, but I would have the grill on the side near where it connect to the building. That way I get good ventilation but also it should be one of the strongest points. Have reached out to the structural engineers and asked them to do an assessment. It will give me peace of mind.
  14. Good point. Have contacted the structural engineers that worked on the original designed of the property.... Fingers crossed they respond quickly and positively.
  15. I spoke to the property manager and they said it would be fine. They used the same logic (number of people)... It is a pretty large concrete balcony that seems solid.
