Cooked up some super yummy pork spare ribs with some honey soy sauce. Had it with some "crunchy" salad.

First go at charcoal

While I was a guest I had the opportunity to try out a charcoal BBQ for the first time. After tasting it I can see why people like it. There is a distinct flavor even without adding any extra wood for flavoured smoke. If I di end up getting one, I'll definitely invest in a chimney and fire lighters because it's a pain in the A$$ to light charcoal without them.

Grilled Chicken Breast

Grilled Chicken Breast ready to go on burgers. Sometimes the most simple recipies are the most popular with the kids. Just lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic and some parsley. Easy.

I bought a Jackaroo 6S 6 Burner BBQ off eBay for parts - turns out this bbq is in better nick than mine. So, I've pulled it all apart and started cleaning it. The panels from the body of the bbq will be treated with high temp paint and the rest will be finished in Machinery Grey epoxy enamel. All the stainless parts are in good nick. I don't envy people that work in body shops stripping paint all day! It's a pain.

Spicey Baked Sausages (not my recipe). Normally you'd do this in the oven. I was a little bored of sausages. You cut the sausages down the middle once they are cooked a little and put in a BBQ / Tomato / Worcestershire / brown sugar sauce with onions in there too. They work a little better in the oven because the sauce caramelises. Still tasty though!

BBQ Beef Ribs =)

I managed to talk Kel into letting me get two racks of pork ribs after my success slow cooking the chicken bits the other day. I used a basic rub based on garlic and smoked paprika powders with a little Cajun pepper and brown sugar. It caramelised really nicely. The only thing missing I think was a baste. In spite of not basting, the ribs were quite moist still and very tasty - with just a little warmth from the Cajun pepper. Same MacGuyver technique with foil over the grill and the adjacent burner on for a slow cook (2.5hrs).

Kel got some "Chicken Ribs" from RedLea to try. The biggest problem I've had previously with little chicken things is that if you grill them, they burn. If you cook them on the hotplate, you have to burn them to cook them through. So I decided to try and slow cook them, like you would if the BBQ had a lid. As I had no lid, I put the burner on under the hotplate and covered the grill in foil. They turned out really well.

I do this occasionally and it's really tasty! All that is required is a small amount of oil on the hot plate and you can cook these calamari rings and prawn cutlets on there, no problem.

Easter long weekend was good. I made some wood bits and pieces and cleaned up a little in the house. Saturday I went and saw Mum and Dad for tea. Sunday I went and saw Brad - we sat around with some other geeks and talked computers/messed about with computers. Monday was for vegetation.

Had a great weekend. Mowed and cleaned up a bit on Saturday and went to Mum and Dads on Sunday for a BBQ where the kids tore up the veggie patch with tonka toys.

You may notice this site is now DAMN FAST... This is because it is nolonger hosted on ADSL. It's now camping out on a dedicated dual CPU box in a data centre in Sydney.

Christmas was good. We went over to Mum and Dad's for Lunch.

Today was great. Kel cooked a nice lunch for us with ham and potato salad and green salad.

I passed a big milestone today in getting organised in the shed. I finished my drill press bench. I can now go back to using the table that the drill press was on...
