I had a little get together today with some mates and this was the results.

Pork belly cooked on the BGE for 5 hours, absolutely juicy and tender.. 110C for 3 hours, 150C for a hour and a half and then 180C for 30 min. In this case the crackling wasn't satisfactory so I flipped it upside down in a frying pan and fixed in 5 min.

Leg of lamb cooked on an open fire spit for 4 hours.. this was delicious and tender but slightly drier than I would have liked. I ended up rushing it because I had a power failure this morning for the motor. Normally I would cook the spit slower for about 8 hours. As soon as you crank the temp up, it tends to loose its juices.

Low and slow...

Fantastic ShavingB!

I seared both sides at 450C for 12s a side, swop sides and repeat - 48s in total to seal and put down some grill marks. I pulled it at this stage for two reasons - dropping the temp on the KJ and resting the meat. Returned it to the fire, took a photo and finished another beer. Med rare with crispy fat, delectable drippings in the veg - Banting win win, taste a plenty

Those veggies were fantastic, caught all the dripping from the resumed cook, I added some of that Honey Weiss, fresh garlic, smidgen of bbq sauce and some water - this steamed nicely.

This weekend I did two cooks on the Kamado Grill.

The first was pork ribs from raw. Cooked for over 3 hours at low temperatures. This used indirect heat.

The second cook was a steak and then mushrooms and potatoes. This was done in direct heat on the fire.

Anyone got anything special for Braai day?

Has anybody seen those little disposable braai's? They work quite well. Two of those, and you have a decent setup for about four people.
