And finally thanks to my Mary, my kids and Glenda. So sorry I did not see you all day long. Thanks for looking after each other. Sorry to not come home with you. But you did get some great ‘burnt bits’. Love you all.

I think even Jude was impressed with Daddy and Uncle Steve - staring intently as we cook through the Perfect Storm.

So what did we do on a single BBQ hob, yep SINGLE BBQ hob was all we had. All prepped from scratch for FIFTY;

  • Circa 4 million sausages – Italian, Cumberland, Chorizo – all nicely sliced
  • Burgers for the kids
  • Garlic bread
  • Sweetcorn with margarine, salt and pepper
Sweetcorn. Easy peasy. Tub of margarine, salt and pepper. Bash on the grill and BBQ unit browned. Simply delicious.

  • Leg of lamb studded with garlic and rosemary, blackened, rested, slightly pink – a WINNER
A very proud moment when this Australian gentlemen in the cap (Paul I believe), comes up unannounced to state; "mate the lamb was amazing, almost as good as my Mum's, and that is saying something..." Makes it all worthwhile from a personal perspective! Thanks for the compliment Paul...

  • A huge slab of 100 day old rib eye steak that we cut in to 4 huge chunks, drizzle oil and salt and pepper, BBQ’d til blackened and then rested above the grill – simply sliced – AWESOME
  • Thai pork and prawn salad
Delighted to say that the food was literally flying off the plates. At certain times Steve and I were struggling to refill. A great sign though that all was good on the quality and taste side.

  • Guacamole and hand made nachos
  • 2 beer bum chickens – one with thyme and one with sage
  • 1 roast chicken stuffed with ginger, chilli, lime leaves
  • Jack Daniels roast beef
  • Then about 4 tonne of other food that others brought along on the day, chicken sweepers, steaks, sausages – you name it, it arrived
  • Oh yeah and about 20 much needed beers…

Cooking from 2pm to about 10pm.

Cooking for about 50 or so people.

Steve Rutherford and I locked in to the grill, having fun, drinking beer, music pumping. We rocked!!!

One of the only times I was with Mary this day. But my soux chef locked and loaded and joined at my hip was there all day. Mr Rutherford is his name!!! A LEGEND, today in Organge!!!

We did it. We did it well. We succeeded. We raised monies. $1180 to be exact.

It was truly non-stop. The only time I did stop was when I sliced my finger in half when prepping the very last chicken. Thanks to my 'helpers' for stepping in then to help with the first aid.

But lest we forget the ‘back-room’.

Again thanks to my Mary and Kids – you enabled the event for me, and we helped others in doing so. Thanks my loves!!!
