General Discussion / Re: Smokey and the Bear's trip

I haven't been up that way on the motorbike yet Mick, that was the road between Grafton to Tabulam via Copmanhurst and Baryugil, beautiful countryside too with lots f lush farmland.

I used to live in Grafton for about 9 years during the late 70's and Mid 80's and used to head up to the river on the Old GI round where you were, some great swimming there without the worry of bullsharks of the Clarence River.
If you go up to the Upper Clarence past Copmanhurst, you might catch yourself a Clarence River Cod...they are huge!!

heading up the Gibralter Range on the Gwyder highway you have a little place called Mulligans Hut...never saw a Hut but some nice camping grounds about 9kms in on a decent dirt track.

Cheers

General Discussion / Re: Charcoal or Gas

Another positive thing on charcoal cooking is that the variety and amount of charcoal that is available now is incredible, never found that to be in the hard to get days only 5 years ago. Since the BBQ comps have been raging and more people gettiing in to live fire cooking, theres some good buys out there in Charcoal land now, from redgum, ironbark and some imported stuff.
Even Bunnings now have become a reasonable charcoal shopping experience and the other day whilst there, I had a look at their WSM copy the Fornetto, except for the smallish entry doors on the side, they are a decent little smoker. The metal didn't feel too bad, maybe similar to Pro-Q but not as solid as WSM.
Weber have just opened their own shop at Moore Park shopping centre near Randwick/ Kensington area, haven't checked it out yet but will when time permits....i think I might have to fold the back seats down in the Corolla ;D

Cheers

The first pic are burners that can run on Natgas or LPG
Yes, that is why I am phoning them tomorrow Wed

which gas just like a weber Q.
Natural or town gas is connected to the Weber it was bought as a Natural/town gas and the shop had a gas plumber install it for me.


In my old 5ft BBQ I had a big ring burner similar to photo I only had to push it up to the back of the control knob I used it to melt lead for my fishing sinkers it got very hot.   My hot plate had a big hole to fit a massive wok in it.

I also believe there is a natural gas hose that can be connected to that Rambo but not cheap at all over $100.00

I hope this helps I will know a lot more tomorrow (I hope)

It seems to be the way of this place that conversations go all over the place. Says something about the vibe of the place that nobody really cares.

Although talk about pineapple and then the Nutella pizza was getting close to making me quarantine the thread until sanity returned. ;) ;D ;D

:)

 Somehow that does not surprise me -not too many Italians in Canada, they seem to prefer Oz :)

I have not been to Italy in a lot of years, did live there once, I do not think you'd have much luck selling pineapple on pizza in much of that country, might get away with it in Rome or Milan, but I'd think you might have problems in Naples, where apparently pizza was invented, and definitely not in Brindisi, where I lived for a time and Calzone is preferred anyway.

I find pizza discussions amusing - most of my American friends swear it was invented in New York, not true but Italian Immigrants to NYC made it the popular food sensation it has been for a long, long time now :)

Keith, We may have our wires crossed.
The first pic are burners that can run on Natgas or LPG but you have to specify which gas just like a weber Q.
The second burner pic is a Rambo with a Hi flow LPG regulator. As far as I'm aware the Rambo only comes in LPG.
Since you are using Natgas, You need a burner like in the first pic with lots of flame jets to compensate for the lack of town gas pressure. I'm pretty sure that Auscrown (the makers of the Rambo), Also make Natgas burners like in the first pic and they sell them on ebay.

G'day Gus
Very nice food.
Can't help ourselves can we, we have to take the conversation of on a tangent.
I'm just as bad I suppose.

Smokey

I have been connected to Town Gas for very close to 40 years now.  If I am correct that hose is just a push and twist then its out. 

I have an old wok i bought from China Town many years ago and its well and truly seasoned.
I also have several  Cast Iron and a very old fry pan that belonged to my Grandmother then, my Mother it could be very close to 100yld

I just cannot get the same heat from my new gas cook top even though its the same brand and model which has been greatly updated.

I will be ringing the ring burner company tomorrow morning.

Keith :) :)
