Looks awesome.

I'm into this. I've never competed - was entered in the Bangalow BBQ and Bluegrass comp but one of our team members had to pull out.

Nothing better than a day of grilling on the weekend.

I've only entered the one comp, we didn't get the brisket up to temp so the tenderness wasn't quite were we wanted it to be. Definitely entering a few comps next year, it's a great way to spend a weekend bbqing and drinking.

What type for smoker do you use Shezza?

Brewdle, what cooker is that? What fuel does it run off?

In our team we had a Komodo and a Pro-Q and a few kettles. I'm just using a kettle at the moment. Does the trick - managing the pit temp is a bit of work though compared to the other two. I almost bought a Radar Hill Offset a little while back ... still thinking about it. My wife decided she doesn't love that style of food though, so I don't do it as much as I'd like.

Looks good mate, once you get hooked on low and slow you'll never look back.

Competed at Sydney Meatstock on the weekend, our food and presentation was 10x what it was last year, we did pretty well. Out of 50 teams we got 8th place in Ribs, 16th in Chicken, 32nd in Beef, 33rd and Pork and bombed out to 44th lamb.

Taste, tenderness and appearance are the three categories. So they judge you just as much for how you put it in the box as how your 16hour brisket cook goes.

So, I got a 2 in one gas and Charcoal BBQ, and looking to start playing around with slow cooking on the Charcoal side. Im looking at getting a thermometer, preferably one with an App so I can leave the BBQ and monitor the temperature throughout the day.

I've seen these at The Good Guys https://www.thegoodguys.com.au/weber-igrill-mini--7202 - But I'm not sure if that's what I'm after. It looks more like a meat thermometer for checking the temperature of the meat, not the BBQ.

Any suggestions for what I'm after, or will this do the trick?

Hey Fui, check out the Smartfire - Aussie made, not only monitors your pit temp but adjusts it on the fly by blowing air into the fire chamber when the temp drops https://smartfirebbq.com/

Looking good Bate Man!

I got a gas smoker from Aldi around 8 years ago for about $180 and love it. Done all types of meat and cuts in it over the years and experimented with heaps of different dry rubs and sauces.
As a result of the awesome meat it produces unfortunately family Xmas lunch is now at my place every yearImage.

Fui, although you want to know the temp of the pit it's crucial to know the internal temperature of the meat with low and slow to know exactly when it's done.
Can't offer advice on Bluetooth set ups. I just use a wireless meat probe with a handset. Set the alarm for whatever temp I want and chuck it in my pocket. Fine if your staying near by, only has a range of around 50 meters though.

That looks amazing Rovert!

I ended up getting the igrill 2.0. It has 4 ports in it, so I can set one up to monitor the internal temp, and put the others into my meat.

I’m inspired to have another go at it during the holidays. Now I’ve worked out an approximation of how much heat each brick makes, I’ll be able to get it right straight away.
