Why buy ”tomahawk” ? It’s just a beef rib or cotè du beouf with extra bone which costs a lot extra for the bone?

Try this

Dont think I will buy a tomahawke again - it was a once try for the novelty but will prefer to stick to better quality steak cuts with less fat. The amount of fat I had to trim from the tomahawke was a lot.

I watched a few YouTube clips to work out dimensions, then marked up some 3mm mild steel I had, cut it out, and welded up the corners to make a cone to go in the centre of my kettle for hot and fast chicken wings, an example here - Boomas BBQ on Facebook Watch

Is the vortex mainly used for wings/chicken? Hubby doesnt like to eat with his hands so its not something Ive been interested in yet. Would like a rotisserie in the future but not yet.

they are for anything hot and fast and quite fuel efficient. Gets a kettle up to 220-240c but still mostly indirect heat so cooking with hot air with a little smoke etc

While chicken wings seem to be what most use them for - fish, steak, meat patties/hamburgers jalapeño poppers Etc can all be done

The Barn and Waygu beef - this was a couple of weeks ago but wanted to give this place a shout out. It was a Sunday night and it's a good ten minutes drive from Mt Gambier and the dining room was packed. I had a fairly basic motel room but it was spotless and well appointed. . Good comfy chairs. I would certainly visit again.

Three of us had lunch at a nearby, Thornlie, small 'Malaysian' café. The food was very genuine tasting and pretty good value at $31.50 all up. We ordered the rice combo plus two Thosai sets. One Thosai set would have been plenty and we are not small eaters.

Biriyani Rice with Lamb Curry, Spicy chicken and vegies.

Giant 2" thick reversed seared tbone today and we have leftovers. Slow cooked to 52c, rested and then seared both sides.

I preferred this than the tomahawke but it was too much for 2 people. Hubby prefers the porterhouse so he doesnt have to wrestle the bone
