Two ChillaxBBQ’s in Finland Gardens for two different reasons
So our new neighbour Mr McCartney has been a busy boy with his family over from the UK and China, and so we spent quite a bit of time over the last week or so pool-side with them. We ended up having one impromptu ChillaxBBQ and one planned ChillaxBBQ, and that is how we ended up with Two ChillaxBBQ’s in Finland Gardens for two different reasons for James McCartney and family and friends.
First up was caused by a play-date at the pool for all the kids together when my Mary and Jude were away for that 1st week in the Philippines. The kids played, and adults chatted and we then reached food time. What to do? Hawker? Order in a pizza? I had just had Shaun deliver some steaks and burgers and hey presto it became a mini-ChillaxBBQ. No BBQ pit booked, but someone had booked. DAMN. OK in the spirit of “Don’t Panic ChillaxBBQ is here”, I brought over my Yakitori Grill and cooked on his balcony. Whoop Whoop. It went like this.
Two ChillaxBBQ’s in Finland Gardens for two different reasons the kicks into a more formal arrangement. James had organised a family BBQ as his family is over. I got to invite a couple of families too as my new colleague and wife and daughter were officially here now, plus Ade was down with Kondia from HK with his kids too. Plus for me, I was so so happy as I had my whole tribe back with me in Singapore. So let #2 ChillaxBBQ commence. And yeah there is some really whacky shit in here today to push the boundaries out. Let’s have a look.
Quite easy you know. OK, this time I was practising with my new ‘Meater’. It’s an IOT food thermometer. You just set in the APP what you are cooking and how well-done you want it and stick in the sensor. It then gives you a run-down of progress through the app. Genius. I love it.
Lamb #1; stuffed with lemon slices and garlic. Rolled and tied. Rubbed all over with a marinade of Greek Yoghurt, lemon juice, curry powder, and S&P.
Lamb #2; stuffed with rosemary, lemon slices, and garlic. Rolled and tied. Rubbed all over with mint-sauce, and S&P.
Both on a reverse sear for about 2 hours on 90 degrees and slap straight on the coals. Get charring! Stunning!!!
No better to finish a rather whacky segway into the World of ChillaxBBQ private events. Two ChillaxBBQ’s in Finland Gardens for two different reasons were so different. One completely Adhoc and one planned. But both done for Mr James McCartney. I hope you liked them Sir? Great to have new faces together. One of my favourite ChillaxBBQ food outcomes is how it brings people together from across the globe, of all ages and all races – all chatting around the food or the BBQ. ChillaxBBQ has some big events fast approaching, check our FaceBook site. Just call us or email us too if you fancy a different take on a BBQ, which may even include gummy worms – ENJOY!!!
