  • T Bone steak (around 30-40mm thick)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil


  1. Have you ever been to a barbeque and there is some joker there with some wacky way of cooking the steaks? Well forget everything you have ever heard, seen or read before, because Richo is the fairdinkum meat expert, and he is going to tell you exactly how to cook the perfect steak! If you�re serious about your meat,take the time to go and find some seriously high quality produce.You're looking a steak that has been grass fed, and dry aged. It may not be cheap, but jeez, it�ll be good! Here's what you'll need.
  2. Start by bringing your steak up toroom temperature, don't make the mistake of throwing a cold steak onto a hot pan. Season all sides of the steak generously! Remember the golden rule, meat loves salt, and salt loves meat! Rub the steak with olive oil, don�t forget the sides too. Get your pan or grill hot � smoking hot! Now quickly sear all sides of the steak to seal in the juices.
  3. Now here is the important part � turn the steak often. Don't give the juice a chance to leak out, lock it in by turning thr steak every couple of minutes until you feel as though it is cooked to your liking. A quality steak is best served rare! Now it is time to rest the steak. It is important to note that even though the steak has been removed from the heat, it will still continue to cook a little. Aim for a resting time of around four to five minutes, depending on the thickness of your cut of meat. Throw a generous dob of butter on your steak while it rests for luxurious, lustrous finish. Enjoy with a glass of Malbec or a quality Cabernet Sauvignon and tell us that this isn't the best steak you've ever had!

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Big pig - loving it

We love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best

Series 2 - a genuine belter!

Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.
