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!

New Plancha: Burgers

For quite a long time I have been keen to get my hands on a plancha/griddle plate for my BBQ.  There are a number of options branded specifically for the BBQ available for those who own Kamados or Weber Kettles but nothing for people with the less popular brands.  After a good while of searching I decided to bite the bullet at visit a local steel fabricator.   Continue reading New Plancha: Burgers

Banana ‘Split’

This was a simple desert I knocked up after cooking dirty steaks on the Thuros.  I don’t currently own the lid and so I have no way to save the coals for a later cook.  Normally the coals go to waste but not this time!  This time I make my version of a super easy banana split. Continue reading Banana ‘Split’

Butterflied Lamb Leg & Prawns Surf n’ Turf

This was one of those cooks where everyone at the table said they wanted this again soon.  Simple but utterly delicious.  There’s not much better than a lamb leg cooked hot and fast on the bbq to medium rare/ medium hot.

The Benefits of Good Charcoal: Sweet Green Chilli Pork Shoulders

What charcoal do you use when you barbecue?  Whatever you can find in the supermarket?  Maybe you’re more bbq savvy and use brands like Big K instead.  Have you ever thought about looking for a local producer of charcoal? No?  I think you should give it a go and here’s why. Continue reading The Benefits of Good Charcoal: Sweet Green Chilli Pork Shoulders
