    Default Advice Needed for Cooking in the Outdoors - Weber 'Smokey Joe' KettleStyle BBQ

    Hi all,

    Am just hoping somebody out there with extensive experience using
    kettle bbqs will be able to pass on some advice. I have recently
    purchased a fantastic looking little Weber ‘Smokey Joe’ Kettle BBQ – a
    real steal at $99.95 in MY opinion. It is a vibrant ‘racing black’ in
    colour with softer greyish tones towards the bottom of the unit. It
    has very smooth lines, is absolutely sleek and stylish and a joy to
    look at. Anyway, I am off on a camping trip this coming weekend and I
    AM relying on the Smokey Joe to keep me going for the 2 days in terms
    of cooking my supper (breakfast will consist solely of oatmeal and
    dried fruits with lunch including a sample of simple yet nourishing
    sandwiches of pre-prepared salads and processed meats).

    Now, 2 questions; firstly, will a unit such as the Smokey Joe be
    sufficient for my needs (is it reliable AND sturdy enough to endure
    being carried for 2 full days in amongst some fairly dense brush and
    thickets?)

    Secondly, what cut of meat would people suggest I take to christen the
    unit? I am not ONLY considering taste here, but also practicalities
    and ease of cooking. Would one be better off grilling some steaks/
    chops, or, alternatively, roasting up a small shoulder of pork with an
    accompaniment of root vegetables for example?

    Many thanks for your input and thoughts.

    Kind Regards,
    Brian Anasta

    Did you mean Smoky Joe or Smoky Mountain? A Smoky Joe (grill) should
    only cost around $30 - if it's a Smoky Mountain (bullet shaped
    smoker), then you got a deal!

    It all depends on what you really have, how experienced you are at
    outdoor cooking and how much time you want to spend doing it. What's
    your favorite outdoor meal?

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Hey Larb, ask him if he's going to take his Buzz Aldrin Collection
    shortwave radio with him on his campout. That would be the perfect
    time and or event to do some monitoring. My guess is that he hasn't
    put 10 hrs. on that unit - - if he even really bought it to begin
    with. ;-)

    ****** Old Brian likes to 'take the piss' in fact he is one of the
    best yet.
    Birdwatching was another one of his hobbies before he got into knives.
