Made a Lamb shank potjie in my Cadac no 3 potjie pot. I cooked it for almost 7 hrs and it nearly fell of the bone . It was a very cold windy day so I had to shield the pot a little bit from the wind. Wind is a important element to consider when BBQ in Ireland or Europe. As it’s a lot cooler here than Africa. And because it’s currently winter in Ireland the outside temperature is also rather cold plus the the wind chill has to be taken into consideration . If you can shield yourself and your cooking from the windchill your winning! So a kettle type for wood , charcoal or gas lid type BBQ is recommended for these elements. Either will work and will stand you well for any other type of cooking/BBQ.
I served the Lamb Shank and vegetables broth on a bed of rice.
