Scouser’s 60th Birthday & Leaving Do – ChillaxBBQ

Our great mates Kev and Joan have decided on pastures new and at the end of September they, sadly, leave us for Portugal. Nearer to home. Nearer to the kids. We just hope to be seeing them once a year on their trips back to the lands of Asia. Bless them both, as they chose ChillaxBBQ to host their event. An event we were truly honoured to do. This became Scouser’s 60th Birthday & Leaving Do – ChillaxBBQ.

On the crew were Big Bird and me on the tools. Ollie, Amy, Soph, Jess and Jade (ChillaxBBQ Virgin) on the serving. And our mate Georgio doing the cocktails. We arrived at 1600 and fished serving at 0130am. Yep, this was a biggie for us, and boy am I feeling it today. One’s body is certainly letting me know what we did yesterday. Here comes Scouser’s 60th Birthday & Leaving Do – ChillaxBBQ.

It was a Scouse themed event. Both on attire and menu. When I left at 0200am I noticed all the wheels on the cars on the car-park was nicked, and there was a room full of hooky video-players…

Here is the menu for

  • Singaporean style slow-roast pork belly;
  • Bubble & Squeak;
  • Scouse saucepan shots;
  • Peawack fondue – ChillaxBBQ style;
  • Supreme sausage selection in blankets;
  • Cheese & hot salami toasties;
  • Prawn cocktail vol-au-vents;
  • Coronation chicken vol-au-vents;
  • Tomahawks;
  • Cp steak marinated in whiskey cooked on Himalayan rock salt;
  • Citrus steamed fish and chips in a newspaper;
  • Paella;
  • Salami and honey nibbles.

And on the drinks menu, served by our very own ChillaxBBQ cocktail maker was;

  • Orange & Thyme G&T – (gin, orange bitters, tonic and thyme)
  • Tom Collins – (gin, lemon, simple syrup and soda)
  • Eastern Breeze – (vodka, mint, pomegranate, and apple juice)
  • Caipirinha – (rum, lime, and simple syrup)
  • Espresso Martini – (vodka, Kahlua, and espresso)

We also had access to;

  • Brewerkz Golden Ale on tap;
  • Red; and
  • White wine; and
  • Kev’s personal beer to boot.

For his birthday present, we took his favourite photo with his Dad and had his very own beer label made up. Quality, just quality. I have stolen one myself for home. Great memories of two great friends!!!

I am having nightmares today re these. How can he choose vol-au-vents for his BBQ. OK, the thought was a mix of food styles from Singaporean to the UK to Portuguese. So Coronation Chicken vol-au-vents were right up there for the UK segment. As I cooked this it sent me back to being a young lad at my Mum’s at Xmas. Just brilliant memories.

Never forget the back-room of our events. Jade, our Virgin tonight, opts to get in there and do the much-needed washing up at the absolute perfect time. We’ll have Jade back anytime she wants to do a ChillaxBBQ again. Brilliant thanks Jade.

I am putting these in because I loved them. Dotted around, Joan had put up some old photos of Kev bless him. Born in the year that Barbie was launched and Mac the Knife was #1 in charts there is no surprise that all the photos are in black and white…

Seb brings pizza to a ChillaxBBQ which was bonkers and even has squid ink spaghetti on his head. Mate, there is loads of food, seriously!!!

Scouser's 60th Birthday & Leaving Do - ChillaxBBQ

Right at the start. It’s a slow burn to the BOOM!!!

Scouser's 60th Birthday & Leaving Do - ChillaxBBQ

Yeah, this one was a little out there. I made Scouse which is a lamb stew in effect. I then strained off all the solids to make a Scouse liquor. That then became a cocktail with some Vodka served up in our little saucepans. So it became Scouse Saucepan Shots. Lamb stew cocktail, yeah only at a ChillaxBBQ event…

Another UK favourite for Kevster. Prawn Cocktail vol-au-vents. These things flew off the tray. Lot’s of childhoods being re-lived methinks.

Scouser's 60th Birthday & Leaving Do - ChillaxBBQ

We sent out 180 vol-au-vents this day. ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY. Holy shit!!!

Just brilliant. Kev living the Scouse costume including Anfield shirt and black-eye. I think Biggins got it wrong wearing blue and trying to be Tin-Tin…

This is fast becoming a signature dish for us. Cheese toasties. Chris @ #thecheeseshop legendary cheese blend mate, stunning. We did Scouse & Cheese Toasties, Hot Salami & Cheese Toasties and Prawn & Cheese Toasties. Bloody lovely sourdough bread too from @ The Trenchard and #richardhuggins

It is now pitch black so the photos become just a little dark. Sorry bout that!!!

A rather delicious Paella with fresh prawns, chorizo and mussels. Paella at a BBQ, yes indeed. It is how we roll and was aligned to the Portuguese segment of the food theme for today’s fun.

Show me a better-cooked steak. Short rib Tomas x2 hit the planks. Reverse seared and seasoned with sea salt and cracked black pepper. That is all you need, believe me. #qualitysteaksthechillaxbbqway

Our Jade goes out next with our new take on fish n chips. This is tortilla chips with newspaper steamed Dory Fillets with 4 herbs and citrus. Shit yes!!!

0100am and 9 hours standing cooking – it is time to quit. SO I heated up the Himalayan Salt Block and enabled a DIY cooking experience with some Cap Steak sliced thinly, marinated in Whiskey and served with S&P, a little mustard. #diycookingworksat0100am
