Cant go wrong with a Kamado, it's an expensive outlay but you can use it for smoking, pizzas or as a normal BBQ. Also has a lifetime warranty

BBQ's Galore has a 20% sale on at the moment

So after all of this I ended up getting the Traeger Pro 22

I've had it for about 18 months and it gets a bloody good work out at my place. I like the pellet feed so I can set and forget it especially with 14-16 hours brisket smokes that I use over night.

Good stuff. Post a few pics next time.
I have been learning the ropes with a basic Weber. Stuffed a few things up but cooks have improved a lot after purchasing a digi thermometer

what did you stuff up?

I found doing a brisket resulted in a few sub par attempts, but after about 6-7 I reckon I have gotten it pretty good. It isn't perfect but it is still good so I just make a little adjustment each time to try and improve it without risking stuffing it.

I find pork and beef ribs are the easiest to do, pork especially.

Yeah I was too ambitious and attempted brisket my first go and was disappointed. I went back to basics and went with some cheaper cuts for my next few cooks. Like you said ribs have come out great.

A mate has built a couple smokers so came around and helped me with the initial set up. Helped a lot. Showed me the snake method.

It’s good fun but a complete rookies. I might look at getting the Pro Q in the future.

Head back to the punters board and tip us into some winners. Most have done our balls the last few weeks

hahaha the guy I knew that was giving me the good tips (some outrageously good roughies) has moved overseas.

That is costing me a nice little extra few $$$'s

If you're going to stick with the Weber for a while, I highly recommend getting yourself an offset plate.

https://thequeclub.com.au/products/jgbbqoffsetplate22 (they also make smaller ones if you don't have the 22" full size Weber)

I am considering a pellet smoker at the moment. Roughly how much fuel do you go through in a cook like you've mentioned above?

a bag f the trager pellets from bbq galore (9ks i think) gets me 3 briskets.

It is hard to say though as the brisket is long and slow. If I make some pizzas, chicken or corn bread which you cook at a high temp it really chews through the pellets.

There is no doubt that the pellets go quicker than wood chips but the pellet smoker seems a hell of a lot more user friendly

How long did that take to cook?

I just got a Fornetto from Bunnings and I'll be assembling it today. Looking forward to some ribs.

Any good recipe sites?
beef ribs took about 4 hours cooking at about 117 degrees from memory. Make sure you get yourself a thermometer because that helps you know when the meat is ready

heygrill.com is good but I mainly watch youtube for tips tbh

Franklins bbq is good as he is the number 1 bbqer in the US but he isn't super helpful for beginners. There is a youtube channel called 'how to bbq right' I found that a good helpearly on
