Not much to report. Did some BBQ for the street party.

I had a problem with the smoker, so I need to order new parts. I was surprised to see I have had it 4 years now. :)

Not much to tell, but did a few bits without any rubs, to please the locals :)

That looks nice!  ;D

I've got mould in my smoker. Never had that problem before. But I am used to my stainless steel grill and that minimal cleaning philosophy of smokers looked very strange to me from the first moment on. I want something, that I can put in the dishwasher (stainless steel grillage) and want to utilize a wire brush to get off remains. That "you need the patina" talk is rubbish.

A bigger kettle grill suitable for nice indirect grilling can do BBQ, too. At least there are tons of videos available on that topic. My problem: I want to use charcoal rather than briquette and don't know, if that would work for BBQ and how you could handle refilling (if that was even necessary). I mean... you have to open the whole thing to put more charcoal in, right?

I have used my 57cm weber to do indirect, it worked well, but you need the good grill.
I used the side baskets, so you need the grill with the lift up sides, so you can add more as you go along.

I have seen the snake method, never tried it, but that does need briquettes.

I have not had the mould problem, my friend does.
The difference is, he will finish cooking and close the door.
I will run mine for 15 minutes over 200c to burn off any left over food etc.

;D

Well, I do BBQ at 110-130C. I am far, far away from 200C. As I only burn charcoal I cant even get my smoker to that temperature. And when I burn wood, my neighbours complain about the smoke. So yeah, that might be a problem.  :-[

I still think loading up some charcoal, open the dampers and chimney, you will get some heat that will dry out any left over food inside. Which is all you really want to do.
Can try brushing most of it off and should prevent mould returning.

New week, new BBQ.

Not much in the photos, as they sort of look like the last....

But I am experimenting with "Hot and Fast" rather than "Low and Slow"
Basically you are cooking at 165c rather than 110c.

Worked ok so far, but need to keep trying.
With this method you need to keep spraying or mopping the meat.
I was happy with the nice crust on the meat I got. But not as good as low and slow.

So when I can, 5kg beef and 5kg pork and try again.
I feel I will need to inject and mop a lot. But really want to see the results.

;D

wohoo. 165C is really hot for BBQ. I tried around 135C and that worked well. You save some time and it's not too far away from 110C. What you might wanna try: Start real hot - i.e. 200-250C - for the crust and then let the grill/smoker cool down to 110C to slowly cook the meat inside. I want to try that... I mean, you do it all the time when using an oven... so it should work.

Problem: how do you do it with just one grill? You can't just lower temp like you do on your kitchen oven.

Afaik you got more than one grill - so go for it! If you are done with the meat and it sits in the 110C smoker, use the hot grill for sausages and snacks!  ;)

135c is a common temperature to cook at, many people do.
The barrel smokers usually run that hot.

With tougher cuts like brisket point, it does need a long time to break down the meat and become tender.
So with these higher times, wrapping and resting becomes far more important.
In someways you dont save as much time as you think.
You also get less smoke penetration, as the wood is getting a better combustion and less smoke.

With my type of smoker, it is easy to program the different temperature. Can even time that through the app.
But charcoal or wood would be harder to do.
Have to let it almost burn out and then slowly add coals to keep that low temp.

I will try again with 165c with the same cuts I normally use.
See if the larger cuts of meat handle this higher temp.
