Default Welcome Blue Lou! A new performer in the family! (pron)

G'Day Bruces'!

Well, a few weeks ago, I got a WSM. I wanted to get a performer also, but it seems at the time I ordered, Amazon Export was out of stock, or had a glitch in the system, so I could only get the WSM.

Then last week, I got an email from Amazon. Guess what... new stock, you can now order. So I did .

And here it is:


It came together pretty fast too!


The only thing that was missing was the sirclip for the gas hose, so I gotta rig something up for that. But otherwise, it was easy peasy setup.

One Touch system lit first go!


And on that afternoon, I went to my boozeatorium and found this, in stock for the very first time!


So I bought some and it is every bit as good as I was hoping for!

Anyway, I had to cook somehting! I had some legs and WANGS! It was time for some brined, grilled cheeeeeeeeeken!


I brined for 2 hours and then dusted the legs with Dizzy Pig!


Here's a few more pics of "Blue Lou"!





And charcoal is GO!


Man, I just LOVE the one touch system. It's absolutely farken super duper!.

So, on went the legs...


Now for the WANGS, there was only one thing to do...


When Big Brother Smoke, Steph, sent me his rubs, he also sent me a sample of Sweet Seduction! Today was the day to use it!


Legs looking super...


And I placed some par-boiled potatoes under the chicken to crisp up!


Wings Looking GOOD!





And plated!



Delicious!


Man, Stephs new rub is certainly a winner! WOnderful taste and colour!


It was the perfect way to make my first cook on 'Blue Lou"

I love how easy the Performer is to use. I've never owned a standard Weber Kettle before, just had a El Cheapo copy, which is now sitting on the kerb, in case someone wants to salvage it.

Man, the whole day was perfect!

Thanks for Looking!

Cheers!

Bill

^^^^ Thanks for the link, but the hose is fine. It's just the little clip that locks the hose into the venturi of the One Touch system that was missing. I've rigged another clip now!

Cheers!

Bill

Yessir... my Performer and WSM are my Fathers day present and Xmas Day present all in one. And yes... the chicken was damn good. Especially with Sweet Seduction as a rub!

Cheers!
