I couldn't find this anywhere on here, so thought I would post up the photos of Andy Groneman's Australia Visit in Feb 2013

For those of you who haven't read, we ( Grill Pro ) Flew out Andy Groneman from the USA for the Melbourne BBQ Festival as well as the week before.

Andy is a 20 times Grand Champion BBQ Pit Master & Over 20 time Reserve Grand Champion from KANSAS in the US.

Forum Members Master Class Afternoon with Andy at Stylish House & Garden in Kallista VIC


We thought what a great way to give something back to the members of the Forum, and invite them to a completely free afternoon with Andy cooking & teaching. This afternoon was a huge success with a whole heap of Forum members attending, some from as far away as Adelaide & Sydney. Bob Hart also attended.

Image
All set up ready for the first members soon to arrive...

Andy will be cooking Pulled Pork & Pulled Lamb, Brisket, Ham, Hot Whang Chicken Wings, Scotch Fillets with Whiskey Peppercorn dipping sauce and Mango JalapeƱo Planked Salmon!!!

Andy will also show how to correctly trim up a brisket & discuss slow cooking techniques as well as showcasing direct & indirect grilling on the Yoders.

Andy will also be using an aray of US products that we are starting to import into Australia including, Mad Hunky Brand Mest Seasonings, Smoke On Wheels Marinades & Injections, Blues Hog range of sauces and other spices & rubs.

What a menu line up , forum members are in for a treat indeed!

I just want to add my thanks especially to Dave, Andy G and Andy (host) - (the place was full of Andys !) and all the guys who set this up for us and gave so much advice and readily answered questions. It was a pleasure to meet a lot of you forum guys as well. And to top it off, Bob Hart turns up too!

A big learning experience and I was super impressed with the Yoders. Everything from low and slow to high sear on the steaks

Looking forward to next weekend but for tonight...no more meat. :D :D I am absolutely stuffed full of pork, scotch, brisket, salmon , chicken wings and even a bit of salad. So many rubs, sauces and flavours, it was certainly a FULL day. :D

I hit the yogurt and 2 fruits for dinner. :shock:

I got some pics off the iphone so here ya go.....

Richard Gunner ( Meatman's ) visit to meet with Andy & taking him to a full carcase butcher in Melbourne

Today we visited a wholesale Meat facility in Melbourne ( organized by Richard / Meatman ) , we took down a Yoder YS640 which we fired up & Cooked pork & lamb ribs as well as some steaks, here are a few photos ...

Andy showed how to cut up a shoulder to obtain the same cuts as in the US.

It was an awesome day & we all enjoyed it so much.

This morning greeted us at 5am & a trip into Melbourne from the Kallista Hills so that Andy could be interviewed by Red Symons on ABC 774
Image

Image

Red is a nice bloke & it was a good interview.

Andy was showing us some photos today of his house in Kansas City in the US.

Back home they have had 26" ( 650mm ) of snow since he landed in Melbourne on Friday.

Image

Image

Image

Image
There is his Yoder YS1320 on Orange comp cart underneath all that snow .... ( he said if anyone wants to know if Yoder Pellet Grills can handle rain, show them this pic :D )

some say, Andy sleeps standing up, they say he does this to think like the meat and gain that competitive edge.

I caught him this afternoon Beaver

Redheads Barbecue Festival & BBQ Competition in Melbourne
( Competition Rules were set by Graeme the organiser & NOT by an BBQ Association as wrongly speculated since the event to self promote )

Man that looked like a good time for everyone involved. Great job bringing Andy over to teach people. The love of BBQ first hand. Keep up the good work mate.

I was fortunate enough to attend the Forum Members Master Class afternoon last year and I videoed a lot of the sessions - if you're lucky, you can see my rude head and camera in one of the shots Dave posted. :D

Some of the things I filmed included Andy trimming, prepping, cooking and serving the Pork and Brisket, plus the salmon, the wings and other little hints and tips along the way. I think I also got footage of Beaver's 'copter! (That's not as disgusting as it sounds)

It's only over a year ago so I haven't quite got around to editing the clips yet! :D :oops:

I promise to edit them down to useable sizes and post them when I can.

Of course, I assume that Andy won't mind me publicly posting his competition secrets! ;) :?:

This was the whole reason I joined BBQ forums - I found out about this event the day after it happened.
