      Thanks, Going pretty well at the moment. It is a bit difficult to find the same cuts that US has as low and slow BBQ isn't massive here yet but there are now a few cooking comps and people like me are getting interested and keen to learn.

        That's good to hear. I guess putting some shrimp on the barbie does not require low and slow.

          Hello,

          Another Aussie BBQer here. Yeah some of the cuts can be a bit tricky to find.

          I printed out pics / diagrams of the brisket from the site and take them to my butcher and he can usually provide if he's got a cow in the back.

          Haven't found Pork Butt here but Scotch works well.

          Costco have something called Pork Collar Butt (Scotch) that also works well. Not too sure what it is. I asked Meathead once and he seemed to think maybe it was the money muscle but seems to big for that.

                  Hi nik09! Welcome to this place we call The Pit. 3 things Americans get right is real southern BBQ, the Corvette, and Samuel Adams Boston Lager. [bring on the hate about Chevrolet now...]

                    Welcome Mates!

                    Huskee - few are the folks that don't respect the Corvette, Chevy fan or not. I think you'll get more push back on Sam Adams. ;-) I personally have no problem with any of the trinity you mention.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
