Yesterday received box of beer, courier hv managed to squeeze this thing  in my letter box Shocked

The timing was great as i was running low on beer. 

This was from friend of my Miss to say thanks for taking her on a whole day fishing trip to the Noises.
Fishing was good, hips of small snaps, some trev,
blue cod, and leatherjackets.  Weather was good, coming back was bit choppy.

Back to the beer LOL

What goes with nice drop... well, everything  but decided to do today some (lots) of spicy chicken nibbles. Have to say the barrel smoker/grill is very good.
So the chicken was marinated for very short time(2hrs) in, Nando's Extra Bloody Hot, Culley's Buffalo Wing Sauce, Culley's BBQ Chipotle & Honey and some black pepper. Really recommend this, great snack Wink   

















Hope to see some of your smoking/grilling soon Wink

applewood doesnt have the slight taint that manuka gives,bonu. Yep those saucesThumbs Up  Applewood from SA is on special at our M10  $20 3kg.

Just wondering when I do chicken pieces or fish again,should I make some hooks and hang from top so as to let juices run rather than food soaking in them .

Pcj, I assume you aren’t smoking on a rack then? I find rack (or multiple racks) with drip tray below works better than hooks. Whole rack has ‘same’ temperature, better than hooks if doing pieces of any length.

Pcj, i was in the shop yesterday and did have a look at grill/smoker some that you have. It's small unit and imo hooks won't work well with your setup. I agree with Keith that flat tray, top or bottom will best option for your grill.
But hooks are great...
Nice size pork belly, spatchcock chicken, tandoori on a hanging skewers.
Those i would like to do on hooks or hanging skewers. When you get the bigger barrel then you will have the volume to hang a half a cow in it (well i might exaggerate a bit) 2 rubbits and a turkey LOL  

One more advice, when adding wood to the charcoal when smoking don't over do it with the amount of wood. A piece of apple, cherry or maple on the charcoal every now and then if you cooking for 2 to 3hrs.

Hi Kieth. Yes on racks with a water bowl above coals
Just wondering as to hanging(using manuka) that the liquid sits on top of meat.Will that give it a tainted taste?? Found a mix of 1/2 charcoal and 1/2 applewood charcoal improved the taste with no taint, Did let it burn 30 minutes first before adding meat.

PCJ said “ Yes on racks with a water bowl above coals”.

So going back to your original question regarding hanging, are you only referring to the juices on top when you say “food soaking in (juices)”?

Yes,The first lot had a tainted taste,using soaked in water manuka to give smoke flavour,bit too strong,2nd cook was best,so thought maybe hanging would allow excess manuka to run off.
