    Hi, I'd appreciate people's views on this please. We're soon going to be launching an app that will list all known public BBQs across Australia. It would also feature facilities (pram-friendly, playground, coffee, toilets) and show photos and a brief description of the location and / or surrounding area. Data would be downloadable so you could use in areas with no WiFi, and if you had 3G you could use the 'directions' feature which plans your route to the location. Would you be prepared to pay $4.99 as a one-off fee for this? Thanks in advance.

    Uk gas bbq can you convert??

    I'm sure I read a post on here recently about converting your UK GAS BBQ to Australian fittings. Is this possible? Really hope someone will reply to this! As we're just about to give it a good clean ready for the packers! Don't want to waste time doing it if we can't take it.

    Gas BBQ.

    My husband and I are going through our furniture deciding on what to take back to the UK and what to sell. We know we have too much furniture for a 20ft container but unfortunately that is all our budget will allow. My husband insists he wants to take his BBQ and outdoor heaters back with us. All gas. I hope this is not a silly question but will the the UK gas bottles fit/work?

    uk gas bbq

    I lovingly cleaned and the transported our Weber Gas BBQ over to Brisbane earlier this year I found the gas regulator and hose didnt fit the Oz gas bottles (no surprise there), but thought it would be a case of a conversion kit Having contacted both Weber and now the "Australian Gas Association", I have been advised conversion is not possible Any ideas anyone before I put my pride & joy out for scrap JT

    The Aussie Version of Creation

    As someone who has come to the conclusion that Australia has nothing much to offer this joke share by a friend really made me laugh! In the beginning God created day and night. He created day for footy matches, going to the beach..... ... And BBQ's....... He created night for going prawning,sleeping and BBQ's, On the Second Day, God created water.... for surfing, swimming... ...and BBQ's on the beach, On the Third Day God created the Earth to bring forth plants to provide malt and yeast for beer and wood for BBQs, On the Fourth Day God created animals and crustaceans for chops, sausages, steak and prawns for BBQ's On the Fifth day God created a Bloke to go to the footy, enjoy the beach, drink the beer and eat the meat and prawns at BBQ's, and God saw that it was good. On the Sixth Day God saw that the Bloke was lonely and needed someone to go to the footy, surf, drink beer, eat and stand around the barbie with. So God created Mates, and God saw that they were good Blokes. On the Seventh Day God looked around at the twinkling barbie fires, heard the hiss of opening beer cans and the raucous laughter of all the Blokes. He smelled the aroma of grilled chops and sizzling prawns and God Saw that it was good .. .. Well.... Almost good..... He saw that the Blokes were too tired to clean up and needed a rest. So God created Sheilas to clean the house, to bear children, to wash, to cook and to clean the Barbie, and then God saw that it was not just good..... It was Bloody Awesome! IT WAS AUSTRALIA !!!!!

    BBQ recipies

    Ok, Now since i move just North of Hervey bay we have not had rain and its been hot. i have purchased a Gas BBQ ( My apologies to the traditionalist). Since buying it two weeks ago i have cooked all our meals outside in an effort to keep the living area cool., using the BBQ as an oven and grill. I have cooked roast leg of lamb, beef and of course chicken, used the rotisserie and also just closing the lid to use as an oven. So, what recipes do our members have that I could cook on the BBQ to avoid me cooking indoors, its a 4 burner BBQ with a hood and rotisserie attachment if Needed. So come on, lets see what I can have a go at cooking on the BBQ.
  11. With it being the first proper decent weekend of the summer down here in Melbourne thoughts immediately turned to the Sunday night barbie. Having sat outside under wraps for nearly 6 months, it was with some trepidation that I took a look to see what was hiding underneath. There, in the middle of the hot plate, was a decent sized stick insect (deceased) as show in the attached photo. I have heard some tales of other creatures taking up residence inside barbecues. What have you found in yours?
  12. Hi everyone, Thank you all for coming to the Kingo in civic, I am however arranging a new meeting at Tidbinbilla. Tidbinbilla is a nature reserve in the east of the ACT. There are a number of BBQ spots and a playground for the small people. Last time I had a BBQ there I had a Kangaroo hop by me, awesome treat for my friend who flew from the UK to visit me. Anyway, to get into the reserve it costs $10 for the day or $30 for the year. This is for a car of up to 8 people. I would recommend a 1 year pass as you'll use it!! Anyway, we'll meet up at 12.00 noon again, I'll try and get their earlier and take my England flag with me so that you know we are the POMS. I will also take my radio if there happen to be a rugby game on. Lastly, it's a long weekend, so no worrying about work the next day, get in!!! See you there Nik
  13. With the warmer weather coming and as predicted a warm weekend in Victoria - thought I would ask what people like to cook on their BBQ's? I am sure a few will be fired up this weekend. I am looking for inspiration as only cook the sual stuff like steaks and snaggs. So feel free to comment away!

    Another Canberra BBQ

    I thought I'd strike while the irons hot & organise another meet up - if we meet at Lake Ginnindera, Macdermott Pl, off Joynton Smith Drive there is a park for the smaller ones, nice new BBQ facilities and easy access to the water for those that want to have a go in the Kayaks. I am thinking 3 weekends time on either Saturday or Sunday afternoon (26 or 27th Feb) Any thoughts? Cheers...

  15. A lot of us not yet down under are looking forward to forging new aquantainces & friendships & having get togethers & sharing bbq's I thought it would be nice for us to hear about your social lives. Do you have all day bbq's, or a couple of hours in the evening. Does everyone take food & drink with them, do you just sit & chat or do you have more of a party amosphere. Can it be a bit of a free for all (often the best laughs) or a bit more sophisticated. A "day in the lives of... " would be good too. If we have a bbq at home here (and i mean my home or family) its normally just an evening affair, occ starting in the afternoon but a lot depends on the weather & grabbing a couple of hours when we can & often have to take the food back inside to eat :arghh: there isnt usually a lot of alcohol involved either so nothing that wonderful. I just get the impression the way of things is more relaxed out there & more focus on enjoying time off work/weekends etc.

    BBQ in Oz

    I'm sure it's been discussed before...but maybe not like this. Being from Texas I have a fondness of grilling, smoking and generally cooking of delicious cow outdoors. It's one of the few things I am proud to have from this country (southern country rock music is the other....which I play quite well I might add). That being said, I do wonder what the quality of beef is like in Oz. Texas does have some very high quality beef...as in like butter, melt in your mouth steaks. I'm hoping the same applies to Oz. Also, is there hardwoods available for smoking meats? I can smoke a delicious Texas style brisket (breast area of the cow for those that don't know Texas BBQ talk) but I've got to have the hardwood to do it with....like Oak or Hicory. Is some type of Australian wood used for that or maybe oak available for cooking as an import? To any vegetarian folks reading this I don't mean to offend...but don't push your beliefs on me either :wink:
  17. Come and celebrate with us this Sunday (31st) at Erlestoke Park, Castle Hill, Sydney. Bring yourself, partner, friend or rest of family to meet up with the friendliest (mostly expat) crowd in the Hills District...if not the world! BYO meat for the BBQ, drinks, chairs, utensils and a plate of salad, nibbles or dessert to share. We'll have a load of fun games for the kids and a Christmas dip. Come along for a great get-together. All welcome! PM me to RSVP & for more info. Date: Sun 31 July Time: 12 noon Venue: Erlestoke Park, Erlestoke Place, Castle Hill.

    Cleaning the beachside BBQs

    Hey everyone, Bit of a random question! I've been to Australia a couple of times now, but never really got a proper answer to this question: The beachside BBQs that many cities/towns provide, who's responsible for cleaning them? Is there an unwritten rule that you should leave them as you found them or what? I ask because every one I've seen has been *pristine*, and I can't believe it's BBQers that leave them like that! :smile:
  20. BBQ RULES : As BBQ Season is upon us. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity. When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion: Routine... (1) The woman buys the food and Beers. (2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert. (3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the BBQ - beer in hand. (4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman. Here comes the important part: (5) The man places the meat on the BBQ More routine... (6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery. (7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat. Important again: (8) The man takes the meat off the BBQ and hands it to the woman. More routine... (9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table. (10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes. And most important of all: (11) Everyone praises the man and thanks him for his cooking efforts. (12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed “her night off”' and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women! :biglaugh:

    BBQ Etiquette

    Well Its a bank holiday weekend in Sheffield, and we just had a BBQ. It was a bit chilly, we all had jumpers on, the salad blew away in the wind and we retreated indoors as soon as we finished, but it did pose the question. "In Oz, do people do gas or charcol?" - We are charcol lovers ourselves, but is this the done thing there! Anyway, now warming up indoors, but will probably have heating on again later..... Off camping later this week, hope it warms up a bit! Sarah :laugh:

    Oz and UK BBQ's

    Hi All We will be moving back to the UK later in the year and I have a quick question for those that have done it. Will our OZ BBQ fit the gas bottles in the UK. Instinct says yes but wouldn't want to ship it there only for it not to work. :confused: Thanks all
  25. I posted this on another thread in the Western Australia section but thought it may be useful in here too. I'm arranging a meetup for new people arriving in Perth: Date: Sunday 30th Jan Time: 3pm onwards Location: South Perth Foreshore, Coode St end of Sir James Mitchell Park The link here should show you the location on the map - we'll meet between the boatshed restaurant and the funcats 'hut' (the centre of the picture) South Perth, Western Australia - Google Maps There are a couple of BBQs in this area so maybe people could bring some meat and salad for an early evening BBQ? We'll bring along a cricket bat, some balls, frisbee etc so feel free to add to that should you wish! Please rsvp so we know at least some people are going to turn up! We have a colourful fish windsock thingy so I'll try and put that up to identify us easily. Thanks ! Jo and Seb PS We'll def do another bbq a few weeks later so that those of you arriving early Feb can come and join us too.
