I have tried Coles, Woolworths and Foodland for dried porcini mushrooms

Judy, here's an Australian source that sells dried porchini.  I think you have to buy 450 grams though.....

Another thing I learnt on the weekend... make sure your dh hasn't put the thermomix bits away without putting it all back together (not that he probably knows how to put it back together). It doesn't work well when the sugar falls down thru the hole in the bottom coz the blade isn't in properly. ::)

Hmmmmm.  So it's HIS fault for putting something away, not her's for NOT LOOKING !!!!!

It holds about a quarter pound (one stick/1/2 cup).  They work really well.  We've had one for years.

My barbecue sauce was on the brisket, not the chicken.  I also put some demi-glace on the brisket, just a think coat, painted on each slice.

Not sure if you're kidding, but no, a license isn't required here.  In fact, in Pennsylvania, there are no limits on knives at all (other than switchblades).  Now, in the communist state of New Jersey, it's a different story.  I think those suckers will arrest a kid playing with a rubber knife ;)  We've had two annual kitchen knife meetings so far, hopefully the third will be in May.  They've been a lot of fun :)

BBQ competitions.  We'll usually do two hole briskets, a butt or two, ribs, etc.  Then in between, we usually make some treats for the crowd :)   I like a really sharp knife, and don't want to work too hard to get the fat and silverskin off...

You can find some pics of one of my competitions HERE   I made the brisket and the coffee cake in the pictures.  My teammates made the other stuff.

It comes out of the fridge in the morning and goes back after dinner ...

Ever consider a Butter Bell.  We use one and the butter stays on the counter all day and night.  Never had a problem.   There's a lot of similar products available, but I think this was the original...

Just got an email on Monday... My turn is up for a knife I ordered over a year ago.  It's being made out of a metal called S-90V which is quite hard.  Will hold an edge longer than most knives, but it's difficult to sharpen.  It's a filet knife, about 240 mm long, and very thin and flexible.  Intended use is for trimming packer cut briskets for competitions, and such other uses as would arise on the road.  I needed one that would last a competition weekend without needed to be sharpened.  By all accounts, this should be it.  When I get it, I'll post some pictures :)

LOL...  l do this all the time.   I'm dyslexic and have to read and re-read to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Amanda, if you like Gorgonzola, it was great!  My son rated it up with the best he's ever had :)  Let me know what you think.
