Zak's 'Sometimes Sunday' Roast

Postby Zak Griffin » Mon Nov 24, 2014 6:05 am

As the weather is starting to warm up, and I'm working a lot more days than not, I find myself cranking the Weber up almost every time I get a day off. Sometimes this is a Sunday, usually it's not :teasing-tease: I just thought I should start keeping track of some of my successes, and maybe inspire others to get that old Weber arced up again :handgestures-thumbupleft:

I have no pics, but I'll start taking some whenever I get the Weber on.

Now my Weber is just a basic Compact kettle, but it does the job for me... One of these bad boys.

Image

A few of my recent wins;

Pork forequarter, cooked for 9 hours @ about 110 degrees. Made a basic dry rub, covered the pork and let the Snake work its magic all day. It didn't break down enough to pull it apart with forks, but it was bloody delicious.

Baked snapper
; Scale and gut a snapper. Load up the cavity with sliced tomato, onion and lemon. Put more sliced lemon on the outside of the fish, drizzle with olive oil and wrap it in alfoil. Cooking time obviously depends on the size of the fish, go until the meat just falls away from the spine. Once you take all of the meat off of the top fillet, you should be able to pull the frame and head off of the bottom fillet, leaving a big slab of meat ;-) Watch out for bones when eating this one... The best bit of meat is in the cheeks :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Beef ribs; Mrs Griffin bought 'Cattleman's BBQ Ribs' from Woollies. They come already marinaded in a smoky/spicy sauce. I didn't have time to cook these slowly, so they just went in for a couple of hours. covered in alfoil to keep the moisture in. I've been meaning to get the butcher here to do me a rack of ribs that I can flavour myself.

Last night was a homegrown lamb forequarter. Poked a few halved garlic cloves into the meat, chopped up the spuds, onions, sweet potato and threw a few extra garlic cloves in for good measure. Sprinkled some homegrown rosemary over the lot and cooked for about 2 hours.

I've recently acquired a Masterbuilt Smoker: http://www.mistygully.com.au/masterbuil ... lain-door/

One of those puppies, and I did a low and slow brisket on the weekend. 10kg of Brisket, with a basic rub, in the smoker at 110C for 8 hours, then sauce and foil, then back in for another 6 hours or so. Left it to rest for 4 hours in an esky wrapped in SWMBO's favourite towels.

End Result: One of the best things I've cooked in a long time. Had a bunch of folks around and they agreed.

Things to do better: Don't put my smoke generator under the drip tray so that 2 hours into the run it gets covered in fat and goes out!

Well done Zac, I look forward to reading about your culinary creations.

My local butcher keeps the lamb ribs when I ask him, and they are cheap as chips. I think I paid 30 bucks for about 10 sets of ribs last time. Each set has 10 ribs and I cryovac them in pairs before freezing them.

They go down a treat with chilli and garlic and cold beer, cricket and a few mates.

From reading everyone's Weber posts I had to get involved.

1. Picked up an old kettle in good nick cheap as chips on Gumtree
2. Learned the snake method for holding temp for long periods of time
3. Brisket........= Beautiful.
Ended up downloading Myron Mixons book on smoking, good rub recipes, sauces etc.. ("the winningest man in BBQ", only the yanks could have the "winningest")

My first ever smoking attempt in the weber.... some good bark and melt in your mouth meat...
Thanks everyone, another hobby to get stuck into.......
Got some pork collar but, for later in the week.

The veggies were a standout in this one... Beef was cooked beautifully, but the caramelised onions, crispy/soft spuds and the sweet potato made the meal

Sweet potato was just cut in half and sat on the grill... Delish! Onion was roasted over the beads with the skin on for a while, then cut in half and put them in the drip tray.

Weber'd Osso Bucco casserole tomorrow :happy-partydance:
