What are you cooking?

Postby Muppet » Fri Dec 12, 2014 8:44 pm

Now that we have a few guys into their BBQ and cooking etc, I thought this would be a good idea to keep the other threads a bit cleaner. Tonight for me its a simple charcoal chicken.

The soup I made last night took about 20min to cook.. Real easy and as long as it takes to heat up a frozen pie! Shit loads healthier and I used some veggies from the garden, so rewarding.

I am fully keen on people cooking fresh food, nothing better.

Once you start the hardest part is getting the knife skills to chop fast. I have a bowl for waste (compost) and two bowls for ingredients, one that needs more time to cook and the other for the stuff that cooks real fast. But I thoroughly enjoy cooking and heaps of me mates think I'm wacko 8-} but the fuckers don't mind eating it :laughing-rolling:

If you do one thing sam I'd say brine a chook, you'll never go back from that

Tonight's chook was brined with the captains gourmet recipe, I use a injector so you can get crispy skin too. Worth the $20 in my book. Really I know nothing about cooking, I've just learnt how to use my webber, lately I bought a 2 probe thermo and thats made everything easy. Apart from that I'm probably a worse cook than most...

Nice!
You can submerge brine and just drain, pat dry with paper towel and place uncovered in the fridge for a few hours and that'll allow the skin to dry and crisp up when cooking. But I only do this in my beer fridge because I'm a bit paranoid about cross contamination

Up late last night getting the New Year's Eve, Eve feast on, It was proving too hard to get everyone around for New Years so we're backing up two nights in a row, 5kg pork butt, brined and rubbed and beef two ways. Ones brined with stout, beef stock and mustard crust, the other just plain jane with steak seasoning. All 3 are currently stalled and smelling amazing. :happy-partydance:

Good stuff Muppet! Let me know how the brined beef goes, was there any salt/sugar in the brine or was it just what was in your post?

I have not brined red meat before :think:

I have a slab of pork belly about to go into the oven for a nice low n slow, not going to molester this too much, bit of fennel and garlic and we're good to go

One I stumbled across thanks to a mate... If your near a Coles store(guess Woolies etc would do also).

They have pre marinated Rosemary and garlic lamb , about a kg in weight.

Place on a bbq plate or grill at lowest heat, marinate = fresh Rosemary , garlic, good olive oil and juice of two lemons. Takes a good 1.5 hours... best Yiros meat I've eaten.

Enjoy

The verdicts in, the stout brined beef was damn good, just a hint of sweet stout which surprised me as the brine was very potent. Moving forward I think that strong flavors are needed for beef a typical pork brine wouldn't cut it. Not really a fair fight serving brisket against pulled pork as the pork renders better and is much softer (pulled chuck would be better) but both were hits. Those game went the pulled pork with slaw an spicy sauce while the beef was treated this way

No photos last night this ones leftovers :happy-partydance:

last night decided to fire up barbie with lamb on rotisserie. Stabbed the hell out of it then went round and pushed some sliced garlic and fresh rosemary into all the holes. Finished of with a nice coating of australian mustard. Then went on to marinate myself a little was going great till 30 mins before it was done and the gas run out :-| so done quick swap to oven which i really didnt want going as it was hot enough in the house.Turned out awesome meant to take a pic but was a bit far gone by that stage and the bones are not much to go on :)) 2nd time in a row using rotisserie gas has run out last time was pork and it run out but was cooked perfectly
