Thanks to the information on this forum I am beginning to master my big green mate. There is limited info in Australia on eggs, I dont even know who else has one.......other than the guy at the shop I bought it from said he tasted chicken off one owned by the importer. (They cost about $1000 here for the large egg without accecories). The only guide I had was the manual. [p]I didn't know about the indirect method using firebricks until I saw TimM's pictures, and I am on my way to a brickyard this arvo. I have an 8 pound turkey breast and a 10 pound leg of pork in the freezer, a heap of red gum charcoal and a renewed enthusiasm for egging on Christmas day.[p]Well its about 30 degrees celcius (85 farenheit) here in Sydney today without a cloud in the sky. Should be hot for Christmas day so I'm glad that although we dont know much about eggs here......... we make great beer.[p]Happy and safe Christmas to you all.[p]Aussie Pete. [p]


  • Aussie, Merry Christmas to you and happy egging. Lots of talented cooks around here. I just bought my wife a pair of UGG boots for Christmas. Fresh from your home country. It is almost a sin they are so comfortable on your feet.[p]CWM

    Welcome! The guys are right, throw the book away and use the forum for all of you Eggucation. Does this mean The Cult of The Big Green Egg has a budding branch in the outback?
    Can't wait to here someone yell, "Put some shrimp on Eggie". How do you cook a 'roo shoulder? Lordie, this just opens soooo many new doors for some of you cult guys & gals.
    Again, welcome and enjoy[p]Carey[p]

    Welcome! We hope to visit your country someday; we hear there's even some Irish music Down under. About that turkey breast...don't forget to brine it for a day before roasting. Read the recipes and notes here; other advice was worthwhile re: tossing the manual. The half size firebricks and a pizza stone will free up your creativity.
    Happy Holidays!
