I have been quietly developing a new charcoal oven product. Its narrower than the Diablo but higher...I call it the Megalith and I have made it look quite primal . I am going to give back my Diablo for sale and take a Megalith home. Being taller I can fit more racks in and it will be ideal for smoking as well as most of what I do in the Diablo. It will never out sell the Diablo because the great features of my Diablo have made my one opposition who imports a similar product to South Africa close their sales office here because they cant compete. A British company. So I don't expect much sales but it will work nicely at my home. I will post some pics when the door is coated and installed back on. Very excited

A large upright mystical stone...Its a side mounted door. Not a drop down. I have made specially designed heavy duty hinges that look like claws coming around the side of the unit. ( I got inspiration from my knife making hobby ).My diffuser is going to top off the look of the stone removing any square edges ontop. I just have to work out how to make the stand look awesome. Not just a frame. I am having fun with it...you never know.....

Problem is that the crew are so busy building Diablos I can't get time for them to finish it off.

P.S. where do you think my inspiration comes from....

Going nuts over the holiday weekend. Carne asada with roasted poblanos and chimichurri yesterday.

Picked up some ground Kobe beef and thick cut bacon from the butcher earlier, throwing burgers on now.

Tomorrow brats and lipitor dependency.

Sorry, no recent braai stories. Limited opportunities here in Shanghai.
I did, however, made a delicious traditional pickled fish last week and are having it on toast every second day for breakfast.

I made homemade Deer burger on Friday, but they were truly horrible. Does anyone have recommendations on what spices work with venison. I used my venison pie (that is truly amazing) spices, and did not palate well with patties. x(

Saute onions and garlic till translucent and soft in loads of olive oil.
Add to venison mince with salt, pepper, cumin powder, coriander powder and chopped fresh mint. You need the olive oil as there is little or no fat on the venison.

Serve with a caramelized onion jam. Or a sweet chilli jam.

Elstadt is ok for someone from Montagu :lol:

Andries is a good laugh :thumbup: Sometimes his way of telling a story/joke is better than the punch line.

Just saw on Megamaster's website that on a lot of their products they are giving a 57% discount, because the Boks got 57 points vs Namibia.

Awesome deals!

If you live at the coast I would not recommend Megamaster - unfortunately not the best quality stainless steel. Always go with Weber

I'm rather partial to pork neck steaks marinated in honey, soy, garlic, ginger and chilli. I've tried it on the medium heat first then finished it off on the hot heat as Nipper described. Bloody nice.
