    We went camping up in Bodega Bay in Northern California last weekend and ate some excellent, huge oysters that we cooked up on the campfire. We had a dozen but only cooked 6 between the two of us because we were stuffed after 3 each (my wife and I, the dog went without).

    Beer is an Anchor Steam Ale (their porter is really good too and would have gone better with the oysters). Doza (the hound) was super interested. We also had some Miyagi (a local type of) oysters which we ate raw, which were a much more manageable size.

    Jerky day today. 2 kinds, Brisket with Pastrami Spices and Copiette di Norcia (which I think means couples pieces) - pork loin flavoured with white wine, fennel pollen, saffron, paprika and chilli flakes.

    That looks just ridiculously indulgent, but then I see your footnote... :/
    How much was it, if I might ask?

    There appears to be a problem here. You didn't post the address for the online store...? :upset:

    Not sure if like...? [confused emoji]

    I'm sure the lobster itself was delicious?
    But seems a bit expensive for what is essentially "Sea Cockroach in Broth"... ;)

    5 minutes into the video, my mouth is watering so much...
    I don't cope well with heat/humidity (40 degrees in western sydney today, buuuuuulllllshhiiiiittttt) so I would probably be in misery if I visited southeast asia.
    But man... I am so willing to deal with it, just so I can try all the amazing food!
    Cheers for the embed link :thumbup:

    Did a 3kg pecan fed free range pork loin roast on the flaming coals minion spit on Sunday, over Gidgee Charcoal. Came up good and the crackling was on point. The picture of the crackling was taken 30 minutes before it was finished.

    Made some pretty good bacon cheeseburgers last night. Used freshly ground shortribs for the patties.

    Had never thought of grinding up shortribs, I like that. Might do that next time I'm making burgers. Last few times I've just used chuck

    Really tasty, beefy flavour but the patties tend to fall apart. I'd probably do a blend but using about 70% shortrib next time.
