I'm completely into cooking steaks in the last 6 months.

I mean like not just putting a piece of meat on the pan and cooking it but really cooking it properly reverse sear or Sous Vide.

I've spent money and went out and bought a Weber Kettle, Cast Iron Skillet, Sous Vide machine, Thermometer - I'm a wannabe chef but I've learnt to master cooking a perfect medium rare Rib Eye/Scotch Fillet, the secret Sous Vide.

Also, attempting my first dry age Wagyu new york strips, I'm currently at week 3, will be Dry aging for 35 days in the fridge.

Cooking steaks on the Weber Kettle, direct heat (of course), sensational. I don't really know what Sous Vide is, but I've just started researching :blush:

Maaaaate, if you already know how to use a kettle on direct heat, sous vide is a game changer!! After sous vide, you can use your kettle to sear.

Sous vide will cook your steak to the precise internal temperature that you're after, and will never fail.

There is a real art in it isn't there mate. I haven't got into the dry aging yet.
I am liking slow cooking/smoking Briskit in the Weber.

You need your scotch fillets on a coal BBQ mate, none of these gas or electrical conventional grills even come close.

A man with rings in the barbie is the closest thing you’ll get to a king at his throne.

I'm all about smoked brisket and Pastrami... I don't think we appreciate those two enough here in Australia

100% if you want to cook it right with the perfect internal temp, I've been doing all wrong my whole life.

The Dry aging is new to me and I'm only doing it because its piss easy. All you have to do is get one of these special bags, its not a normal vacuum seal bag, this bag is basically a membrane where it allows moisture to escape and not allow moisture back in, once seal you literally just leave it in your fridge for how ever long you want to age your meat.

Depends how it's cooked. If I'm not sous vide'ing it then I like using coals. If you sous vide it before hand then coals are going to ruin the steak as you need a quick sear. The other issue with coals is that you don't get the perfect crust that you get from a cast iron pan/grill. But the flavour is pure happiness.

I'm really wanting to build myself a Wood Fired Pizza Oven. Been toying with the idea for a while, and not keen on paying the high $$ they have on them.

Will be able to do all kinds of nice wood style cooking in it.

Fucking wow.

I went to Costco a couple of weeks ago and got 2.5kg Wagyu Sirloin ended up being about $150.

I'd happily spend money for premium cuts of meat.
About $800 a kilo or some crap

After sous vide you must sear it, either on a cast iron pan or bbq coal. Needs to be flaming hot, searing should only take 3 mins max.

Oh you can also sear with a chimney coal starter, bloody best thing ever.

Mate buying in bulk is the way to go, you save much more money that way.

Cut them up and freezer it. Defrost steaks actually still taste fresh.

There is a meat joint in Waterloo area the meat emporium, I've been meaning to go but just haven't found the time.
