A few years back we found ourselves in Philadelphia sampling some of the best eats we’ve ever come across. One of our trip favourites was the famous philly cheesesteaks! Packed with thinly sliced scotch steaks, bitey cheese, marinaded capsicum, mushies and onions all packed into a soft long roll, making this always brings back great memories!


(This recipe will make 6)

4 x scotch steaks (chuck in freezer for 45mins to semi-firm up and then slice as thinly as possible, through a deli slicer is optimal but hand cut with a knife does the trick Favourite all purpose rub (we love Four Monkeys Home Base)

2 x large brown onions (cut into slivers)

400g sliced button mushrooms

150g unsalted butter

Marinaded fire roasted red capsicum

500g provolone cheese (cut into thin slices)

6x Soft long rolls


  • Fire up the Big Pig to get a roaring fire going and heat hotplates until lightly smoking
  • Brown onions and cook mushies through (add unsalted butter about half way through cook) – this step takes approx. 10mins
  • Once cooked, set cooked onions and mushies aside in a large bowl
  • Sear off steak in batches, adding more steak as it reduces in size (season with your favourite all purpose rub – we love 4 Monkeys Home Base.
  • Cook steak to desired doneness – we love medium with a bit of crispiness on the edges
  • Add steak to large bowl and mix thoroughly with mushies, onions and capsicum
  • Using large serving spoon, load pile of ingredients back onto BigPig hotplate to a similar size of what your soft long rolls areLoad provolone cheese on top of meat Bang the soft long roll cut lengthways on top and let the cheese melt
  • After 1min, remove contents from grill (a long flat spatula does the trick here)
  • Enjoy your Philly Cheesesteak!

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

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.

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
