G'day from Sydney

  1. Hi everybody, not sure if there's much international presence here but I'm an ex-pat American living in Australia for the last decade and just picked up a Hark Brand electric smoker (I think it's a local make) this morning. I love introducing American fare to the locals - I am as far as I know the only person who deep-fries Thanksgiving turkeys here - and do all sorts of cooking but have never really attempted smoking/proper BBQ before (though I've loved tthe stuff on my travels).

    Anyway, off to pick up some pork, I think I'm going to give it a dry rub tonight and then tomorrow morning let it go low and slow for pulled pork Sunday dinner. All tips/suggestions welcome, looking forward to learning a lot in these forums. Cheers!

    Welcome PrickwithaFork to the forum,  

    Glad to have you with us.  If you follow one of the themes of the forum your screen name will become a thing of the past.  Most of us don't use forks when slow cooking because they introduce bacteria into the meat!    Good luck on introducing American BBQ to Australia before you know it the whole town will be have Sunday dinner at your house!

    Again, welcome,  hope you enjoy your stay and don't forget the Qview.
