When your cook is done, it’s not quite time to dig in just yet. When smoking, it is critically important to rest the meat. If this step is ignored, you may wind up with a dry cook and become disenfranchised with your smoking experience.
HOW IT'S DONE
Remove your wrapped cook from the smoker and wrap it loosely in another layer of butchers paper. Wrap this in an old towel and place into a clean and dry, insulated Esky or cooler for between one to three hours. You will run no risk of your cook becoming cold as the butchers paper, towel and insulated walls of the Esky keep the heat in and allow the juices to reabsorb into the meat.
After resting for a minimum of one hour, remove your cook and place onto a clean cutting board. Unwrap the towel and carefully unwrap the butcher’s paper. Place your cook onto the chopping board and slice against the grain of the meat to maintain the protein’s tender and juicy profile.

What our customers say
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.
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.
Great bit of kitWe 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
