What did you Cue? / Re: Thanksgiving
« Last post by chrisg on Today at 02:45:24 AM »
:) Looks good Ozy although that Daiquiri looks like it could stun a mule :)

As you know we don't really celebrate Thanksgiving here  either but I have a number of American friends here who do so been drinking martinis all week :)

Cheers

What did you Cue? / Thanksgiving
« Last post by Ozymandias on November 23, 2017, 02:45:29 PM »
We don't actually celebrate thanksgiving in my part of the world, but having the day off and an opportunity to BBQ, i could not help myself.

Wings and the Captain's chook, spatchcocked, in my Kettle/Slow n' Sear

Served the wings sauced and the chook with some sausage "stuffing" mash veg and herb gravy.

A rather strong daiquiri and a wonderful fresh beaujolais rounded things up nicely

It should be, I burned it in for 24 hours before you picked it up and it never missed a beat once cleaned up :)

Yeah, being I fly so rarely on whirlybirds I'd forgotten their typical 10kg baggage allowance and whilst it is a lovely machine it must exceed 2kg. (I travel around the world quite often on 7kg of backpack, but I usually use internet cafes :) )

Anyway, glad you are happy with it, had its challenges but it kept me occupied :)

Cheers

It was quite the saga sourcing auger parts from the good ole USA and a major upset for the controller to kak it 2 cooks after... no regrets.... we have parted ways...

The laptop is running fine Chris, only been started a handfull of times since you worked your magic. Work has been insanely busy for the last 4 months and chopper mobe means a 10kg weight limit so it has been left sitting at home. It will change soon as work settles down and I plant roots again. Just about to have NBN connected and setting up a new home.
I cant remember ever being this busy for this long... Bring on summer holidays!

Still Cue'in

You are not the first person I've heard of to lose their rag with a Traeger Geoff :)

I just keep it simple with a kettle and a Q for fire ban days, but to each their own :)

Cheers

PS. How's the laptop going ? Been meaning to call you to check but never know quite where you are :)

Not quite yet as Im away working to pay for it, but.... There is a shiny Stainless Jim Bowie with my name on it sitting in Perth ;)

The Traeger after costing an arm and a leg to fix the auger had developed a controller problem... and then got taken to with an axe... The Traeger and I are done for good :)

I have a couple of large gatherings to cater for in the coming months and driving multiple cues all day is hard work. this should streamline the busy cooks. Sound excuse anyway ;)

Cue & A / Re: Wings and whole chook
« Last post by Smokey on November 22, 2017, 01:42:07 PM »
Together if you use the zones and are willing to move things around. Should have the lot done in the same time. Bout an hour and a half @ medium heat for a well cooked bird.
The wings will need to be pulled at the right time though, But can keep warm for quite a while. 
Your cooking for a group so best get everything on and cooking, Much easier to keep warm than wait for stuff to catch up.
Your delima is the same as a pro chef, They get everything going early and deal with the holding so food come out same time  ;)

Cue & A / Wings and whole chook
« Last post by Ozymandias on November 22, 2017, 12:34:13 PM »
I am thinking of cooking a whole chook and some wings for thanksgiving tomorrow. Not enough people for a turkey plus turkey meat's not my favourite.

Question is, can I cook then together in the kettle? Should it be wings first, and the chook later so as to be ready after the wings, or together?
