Cherry Wood Smoked Beef Ribs

This was just my second ever attempt at cooking beef ribs on the BBQ.  The first time using a dedicated smoker.  For some reason I thought that beef ribs didn’t take all that long.  I was wrong.  So before I even get into the ins and outs of this cook I would like to apologise for the less than great photography.  Thankfully the food ended up being pretty good so I didn’t mind waiting up until gone 12am.  Here are the details.

Lemon, Ginger and Chilli Beef Skewers

Bought a couple of things from the butcher this week before he went away on a weeks holiday.  Amongst those items were these Lemon, Ginger and Chilli Beef skewers.  Prepared and marinaded at my request by Chris Hayman Butchers I was definitely looking forward to these.

Jumbuck Rondo Rotisserie: Beef

So I’ve always wanted to own a rotisserie.  I’ve always been unsure what rotisserie I should get.  The Thuros rotisserie looks fantastic but on my Thuros T1 I would be limited to smaller joints of meat.  I could have bought a rotisserie kit and attached it to my barrel BBQ but in all honesty, I don’t think I would know where to start.  So when I saw that the Jumbuck Rondo Rotisserie was reduced to £40 in Homebase a week before my birthday – there was really no better option.

Grilled Steak, Looftlighter and FryLight

So this cook was about experimentation.  Nothing that exciting but nevertheless… an excuse to fire up the BBQ.   I’ve done a few dirty steaks lately and although I do love cooking steaks that way I thought I would do something different today.  Back to the days where dirty steak was something I was still sceptical of.  In order to do this I knew that I wanted the charcoal and the grates to be as hot as possible.  Whats the best way to do that?  Looftlighter!

Smoked Brisket

Yes!  I have finally had the opportunity to try tackle the ultimate BBQ meat.  The brisket!  I’ve always wanted to try this but being more expensive that your average roast, I’ve never really been able to justify it.  Thankfully, I didn’t have to this time.  Thanks to the extraordinarily generous competition held by James Lowe at JL Butchers for #UKBBQWEEK – I won this fantastic Aussie brisket.  Absolutely free of charge!  I couldn’t wait to get this on the UDS and create smoked meat perfection.

Dirty Steaks…Again.

I know, I know… Another dirty steak?!  YES!!! Because it’s delicious and you have to try it.  This time with two excellent wagyu cross sirloin steaks purchased from a petrol garage near Hereford.  That’s right… Locks garage near Hereford sells better steaks than many local butchers.  Not much more to say other than try dirty steaks and if you want to read a little more about how it’d done click here to read a previous post.

MY FIRST DIRTY STEAK

I’ve always been sceptical about cooking steak ‘dirty’ despite many bbqers stating that this is the best way to cook a steak.  For those of you not familiar with this method – Rest assured, cooking a steak ‘dirty’ doesn’t actually involve any dirt.  It actually means that instead of cooking your steak on the bbq’s grill, you place the steak directly onto the coals.  Now if you’re anything like me, when I first heard of ‘dirty steaks’ you’ll be thinking a few different things.  Why?  Wouldn’t it burn? Wouldn’t it get covered in charcoal and ash?  I’ll answer those questions for you now. Continue reading MY FIRST DIRTY STEAK

Reverse Sear Steak

Have you ever heard of reverse searing?  No?  Then this is the best thing you’ll learn today.  Yes?  You probably already know everything I’m about to say but by all means, read it anyway.

If like me you love steak, you probably believed you could cook a pretty incredible steak already.  You’re probably right but this method of cooking your steak will definitely take your steak to the next level.  To cook this steak I adopted two new techniques picked up from the incredible community over in the CountryWoodSmoke Facebook group.  Dry brining and reverse sear.  If you are at all interested in BBQ and good food I seriously suggest you go and join that group.  Let’s start with preparing the steak.
