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.

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.

Happy Birthday to me… Early Gift.

Yes it’s coming up to my birthday and most of my wish list items are BBQ related accessories or equipment.  I really am very easy to buy for.  Ordinarily my parents are quite happy for me to make suggestions and then they will pick something for me that they would like to buy.  This year however I have had an early surprise gift that I could not be happier with.

Burger Experiment: Making My Own Mince.

So I thought I would try to make my own mince for burgers.  I’ve had the electronic mincer for quite a while and still haven’t used it.  Every time I’ve been to a shop intending to by meat for the mincer I have backed out because it seemed to work out so much more expensive.  This time I thought it must be worth the extra effort so lets have a go.  For my first attempt I decided that I would try to use the most accessible meat from a local supermarket.  I hoped this would bring down the cost but also demonstrate what is possible to those who don’t normally shop at a butchers.

Maple Glazed Pork Ribs & Whole Chicken

This cook was a simple one.  Not too adventurous but it’s definitely one of my go to smokes.  Maple glazed pork ribs and whole chicken.  As much as I do like to experiment, it’s sometimes nice to stick to what you know and like.  This is one of those times.  Below is the link to a video made for this cook and some details of what I did.    Continue reading Maple Glazed Pork Ribs & Whole Chicken

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

New BBQ: Thuros

I don’t know about you but sometimes it’s hard to justify using a full chimney of charcoal for just a couple of steaks. This is why many of us serious about outdoor cooking have more than one BBQ at our disposal depending on the circumstances. I already have my cheap but cheerful barrel grill and my UDS. I love them both but they are large and fuel hungry. Realising that I needed a more compact and efficient BBQ for the smaller cooks I decided to add a new member to the family.
