I’m a Weber Kettle collector trying to cook good food. I love trying new things and perfecting the art of barbecue (on Weber’s)

I’ve always loved cooking. Barbecue is just one style I like, although at the moment in my life, it is a big part of it. In the last twelve months, I have moved from just barbecuing for family and friends, to competing with Full Metal Kettle here in Australia. Then starring on a TV show. Who would of thought a small idea, would grow so big.

I grew up next to the ocean, in a place called Mordialloc (moore – dee – al – eek). I use to fish nearly everyday. So cooking seafood is big at my place. I’d happily eat it everyday. In saying that though, I tend to cook a lot of the more traditional meals, roasts, wings, steaks, burgers, etc on a daily basis. I’m always thinking of new recipes and tell family and friends to pop over for another taste testing.

I am also a qualified photographer, I do love mixing both photography and cooking. My family tend to be like race horses waiting to bolt out of the gate after I cook. They know once the camera goes down, it’s time to dig in. At the end of the day, I enjoy cooking for my family and close friends, it’s such a social thing to do.

I’m trying to branch out and cook on a variety of other barbecues lately. Although I always keep coming back to my trusty Weber Kettles. I have around 50 or so at the moment and as I move some on, I always find more. Speaking of which, keep your eyes peeled and if you find one, send it my way please. Just don’t tell the wife, she feels I have enough.
