    I suppose being a Cook in the Army helped with a bit, I have a large collection of Knives, so I am always using them for something.

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    I buy my Topside from the Butcher already thinly sliced & frozen in a round similar to a large Hamburger Pattie in 1kg packs. It is easily sliced into smaller uniform size pieces & marinate overnight, takes most of the work out of it, although I have on occasion sliced my own.

    Yeah, I agree with that, but it's still nice to have it under the Bar as an impromptu snack, just have to keep it out of sight from my mates ! Your Jerky looks absolutely great. Well Done.

    I walked into a bottleshop...

    What the hell brand was it, that's weird for 375ml ?? I know some of the so-called boutique bottle shops whack the prices up, but who could afford that ?

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Guys on the subject of Jerky, I came across this in Coles, my local is Castle Plaza Sopping Centre/Edwardstown SA, it was reduced to $1.25 to clear, normally $6.50, I bought the last remaining boxes 2 x 12 units each, it is kin awesome !! I will still continue to make my own, but couldn't leave that there... goes perfectly with my Coopers Draught with added Grain & Hops ( attached ) I wonder why it was reduced as the Best before was next year ? Cheers Phil

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Hi Spudley, Looks good, nice colour, I haven't tried Camel or Roo. I tend mainly to stick to Beef & make different flavours with Chicory/BBQ/Bourbon/ Teriyaki etc. My favourite will always be Chilli.

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Hey Beers Gone Wild, I understand lot's of people can't handle Chilli, you either like or you don't. Most people tell me it's too hot ( Hello, so is the sun ) however you don't have to make it like a B.. Burner. There are lots of other nice combinations available to suit every palette. I am always experimenting with different twists to the original concept, however I am not sure about Roo/Camel/Crocodile etc .. I expect its' nice, but for the moment I will stick with Beef. Cheers.

    Beef Jerky Recipe

    Hey man that looks good, I like your smoker, I have tried it several ways; EZIDRY ULTRA FD1000 www.hydraflow.co.nz Oven Hooded BBQ Weber with added Hickory Chips on the coals I reckon it's a toss up with the EZYDRY or WEBER, but I have varied the recipe many times. Yes it was mine, but a lot of the faint hearted chaps can't stand the Chilli content, however there is a lot of good ways to create different tastes, a mate of mine uses Bourbon & Coffee, but you end up P...... If I was you I wouldn't invite anyone around as they might drink your beer & eat your jerky. Cheers Phil

    Well said, Yeasty Boy, They are all a mob of Greedy, Selfish, Hypocrites who are all out for themselves, you cannot trust any of them. The way we change our government & Prime Ministers is an absolute Joke. The Blind leading the Blind !! The fact that we can produce our own Beer & avoid those taxes is great. We should have a Bastille Day like the French & weed a few of them out.

    JOKE FOR YOU

    Hey Guys, Here's a joke for you.

    Hi James, I agree on the pricing, way overboard ! I expect most of us have been in Craft Breweries & some Pubs who like to think they have something unique & bang their prices up, imagine the bill if you stayed for a session ! Attached a bit of “pinched” info. Cheers Phil The story behind the smaller beer pint glass in South Australia provokes several theories. South Australia’s beer glass sizes and names – pint, schooner, butcher and pony – remain oddities with their origin clouded. Elsewhere in Australia, a pint of beer is 570 millilitres. In South Australia, it’s 452 millilitres. A South Australian schooner is 285 millilitres (slightly smaller than the interstate counterpart), a butcher is 200 millilitres and a pony is 140 millilitres. The name “butcher” is itself a South Australian oddity. The story behind the smaller pint glass in South Australia provokes several theories. One is that the forceful Temperance movement, which forced pubs to close at 6pm for most of the early 20th Century, also lobbied for smaller glass sizes. Or it may have been a product of World War I or 1930s Depression austerity. Various breweries offering imprecise bottle sizes began the practice of referring to “reputed” quarts or pints. The long-controversial “reputed” pint changed from 18 fluid ounces to 17 and in 1951 to the 16 fluid ounces fixed by the prices commissioner. By the 1980s, the reputed pint was down to 15 fluid ounces. Imperial half pints had been sold in South Australia in the 1850s. World War II saw a decline in imperial pints. The federal government imposed higher beer taxes as part of the war effort, as it had in World War I. While New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia decided to charge more for beer, South Australia kept prices the same but reduced the size of glasses. The most common theory about the name of the butcher glass refers to Adelaide’s Newmarket Hotel, on the corner of North and West terraces, near a 19th Century abattoir. The smaller butcher glass was said to be a favourite with abattoir workers, possibly because it wouldn’t slip through their bloodied fingers. But other pubs close to butcher shops or meat works are credited with originating the name that was used at least as early as the 1880s – for glass that were not always small. Or the glasses were given to boys delivering meat to hotels. Or the name is from the German “becher” for a drinking vessel.

    Sports

    I was never much into sports apart from Golf, which I gave up years ago & I played Darts all over Australia for many years, used to enter tournaments & won a fair bit of $$$, used to hustle in the Pubs a lot & I run a couple of Dart Shops & sold Darts Supplies & 8-Ball/Snooker gear on the road & in the Pubs, still love a game, especially with a Beer or Nine. I follow the Adelaide Crows in the AFL. Cheers Phil

    I was in Port Pirie (SA) last week on business & the old Family Hotel which has been closed for a while has re-opened under the name of "The Fam Pirie".It is now a Brewery Hotel & has been completely renovated with everything going for it, Brewery Bar, Bistro, Beer Garden, Wood Fired Pizza. www.thefampirie.com.au The beer range is awesome & the Brewer owns a Brew Supplies Shop I town. I tried heaps of styles, even a 'White Stout' 7%, awesome. The Beer prices are a bit high, but they have a few specials. Luckily I have to go back there in a week or two.

    CHEZCH PILSNER

    Hi Guys, Anyone done a Chezch Pilsner before, I was given a voucher from Brewcraft & this morning picked up the extract ( Mangroves Jack Chezch Pilsner) 1xkg Beer Essentials Brewblend No 15 & Fermentis Saflager Dry Lager Yeast 11.5g, the guy recommended 12 days @ 14-15 degrees due to the yeast type. I haven't done one before so I assume this info will give me a nice result. I would imagine there would be different opinions out there but open to anyone's ideas. Na zdraví

    Hi Gully, It's interesting to get different variations on the process, however I am more inclined to follow Otto's initial comment. I do appreciate the suggestions from everyone. Cheers.
