Buying meat online is probably the last thing that comes to mind when I say online shopping, but is here to change that. Launched in 2006 following 40 years of combined experience supplying many of Sydney’s leading restaurants, pubs, clubs, cafés and hotels, Butcherman offers competitive wholesale prices to the public via their online store.

The site navigation is intuitive and the categories makes browsing a breeze. Their vision of being the ‘ of meat’ is an exciting one, particularly if it means easy access to harder-to-find meats and cuts.

In addition to your standard beef, lamb, veal, pork, chicken and seafood sections, they also have a deli, sausages, game meats, spices, Brazilian meat and mixed meat boxes. The variety available and quality, is much greater than what you’d typically find at any supermarket.

My order ends up consisting of two sets of eye fillet with porcini mushroom and truffle butter ($19.75 each; $39.50 per kg), a butterflied whole chicken with shish tawook marinade ($13.10), Nonna’s pork & fennel sausages (2 packets of 500g, $13.90) and some wagyu sirloin (two 250g, $31.95). They currently deliver to most areas in Sydney, check here if you’re unsure. Ours was conveniently delivered the next day, promptly at the selected time slot.

The arrival of daylight saving was the perfect excuse for hosting our first backyard BBQ for the season!

We kept it simple, throwing most things as is, directly onto the charcoal BBQ.

We even pulled off cooking the eye fillets on the BBQ; the heat was lower by this stage which allowed the steak to cook through, maintaining a juicy inside and achieving a beautiful brown crust and grill marks on the outside. We used my Japanese tamago egg pan to catch the porcini mushroom and truffle butter. My bottle of truffle oil was later brought out for extra truffle goodness!

Clean your BBQ first...ribs are smiling hot but you don't want them just smoking :p


Prepare light and crunchy salads and fruit to offset that meat overloading feeling.


Low and slow is the best way to go! especially for cheap cuts, or ribs. yum yum!!


My fav tip is slow and steady makes food more tasty :)


Never let little ones make mud pies near the bbq or the next time you use it, you have to scrub hard mud off it first.


Let the man cook the meat, much less hassle and they can enjoy a beer or two


Make sure the grill is really hot before you put your steak on and it will never stick and only turn it once

Use an oiled cloth to clean the grill before you put the food on it!


Clean your BBQ with beer, and always leave a thin film coating of oil on the plate.... Doing this stops it from rusting...


Ebile skewers are always good - Rosemary works really well with lamb 


clean the barbie with before and after, its amazing and you get extra butery goodness when you cook!


Wet stale bread rolls then place them in aluminium foil for 5-10 mins on the grill for a crusty outside but soft and fluffy inside!


I always make my own 'Meaty things' on sticks;

The best Barbies are made at home with bricks,

Plus I always supply the toothpicks!
