Funny old thing - just assembled my new B&Q (bought from Castorama) CHARCOAL kettle BBQ - will be running this weekend - pork leg or a chicken, not decided yet! (But on Saturday planning to go to Cabane de la Patache at Portes en Re; overlooks the sea, a stunning small bay and the approach to Ars en Re - beautiful place)

Just waiting for my Smokey Joe Gold to be delivered.

The 1-Touch 22.5" is a bit big for just me and the Mrs. (But will be primed & on stand-by for entertaining at short notice).

Two fresh monkfish tails I did last night for tea. (Marinaded in olive-oil, rosemary & a shed load of fresh ground black pepper....gorgeous!!).



Gonna try pulled pork this weekend, utilising the Minion method.

Langley B,

Spot on, pulling pork will always have that effect.

On Sunday my good lady promises pulled pork. What have I done to deserve this? Time was ..................... !
Question: is this a Weber jobby or a gasser? Or both?

Pulled Pork....(oo-er missus)!

First attempt at doing indirect bbq'd pulled pork at the weekend went quite well.

Started cooking the pork shoulder about 12:30 on a 6hr marathon. By 3pm I was half trousered! Fire/temperature management is very thirsty work!

Quite tricky at first trying to regulate the heat between 225F-250F. But managed to get it down to a tee with the vent settings and the amount of coals required. Bottom prop/vent about a 1/3 open, and the top one about 1/2 open. 7-8 coals required to maintain a constant temperature, and a squirt or three of fresh apple juice.

I had to employ the services of my Smokey Joe & chimney to keep me supplied with fresh coals.



If I may say, the result was delicious having used my homemade dry-rub.



Next week, a big slab of ribs.

Must try the pulled pork on the BBQ. I do a (very very) slow roasted pork shoulder which the family often crave when they return to Teetering Towers.

At present I do it in t'kitchen, as it takes 24 hours (basically 1 hour @ 200 C - for the crackling - followed by 23 @ 100 C) - but even a dedicated chef comme moi won't sit up all night feeding coals to the black orb.

But 6 hours would be manageable .........

Oh Dear Chaps,

Just when you thought that peace and serenity had come to " My Beautiful Weber" along comes this, from Britains most followed newspaper

Charcoal barbecues have met their match with those run on gas topping sales for the first time | Mail Online

Someone please confirm that this is just propaganda paid for by the users of the evil gas machines.

Slightly surprised their line isn't:

"Illegal Immigrants use of Charcoal drives down House Prices Shock"

Or propaganda paid for by retailers of (more expensive) gas machines?
Despite the misleading headline, the information in the DM article comes from one source: Homebase.

Steve Raichlen's recipe for North Carolina Pulled Pork works well.
I've got one of his excellent books but the recipe is readily available on the internet.

A slight digression please:

I bought my super scarlet orb in the PX at JHQ Rheindahlen in c. 1990, and a week later bought a massive Murray Lawnmower, 3 1/2 HP, huge blades, no hover, no motorised forward drive, just huge cutting power.

This morning my very nice but temperamental John Deere decided to oil up the plug, meaning a delay while drying out took place.

BLX says I, into the shed, primed the reserve, 35 little squirts, WHOOF !

and we were away. Maintenance? One plug [ever], an oil change every other year, rinse the filter, and talk to it nicely.

Two fabulous bits of USA kit.

Coff,

What an interesting comment. On the day that mrssmudges flymo finally gave up the ghost. With only a small lawn to cater to, does Hayter do a suitably small machine, so that she can do a better job in the future. It's hard to take grass mowing seriously for me, as an ex engineer, I like to think that when I've fixed a job, that's the end of it.

Really. Paint something British Racing Green and some mug will but it. If you want a good mower, you buy a Honda, end of! Just look at what most gardeners use.

Well, guys. I have to say that this summer has put the entire gas vs coal debate in the shadows. The place we're renting for the summer before moving into Chateau Courtney has THE WORST barbeque ever. I have used all sorts of outdoor cooking facilities and some were awful. But nothing compared to this. As some of you may recall, I'm looking forward to a super, built in, mega outdoor grill, cooker, oven. I may have to go and secure an interim facility.

Just for now, I cannot start to tell you how irrelevant the gas/coal debate has become for me. I'll get back into line soon, though.

Well as I walk/ride to work through some of the London Parks and Gardens they all seem to use Hayters. Maybe it's something to do with them being remarkably quiet as well as giving a good cut!!
