The eternal challenge with any big barbie is ensuring all meats are cooked to the required doneness at the same time. No mean feat.
Something that can really wow a crowd without getting too tricky is a giant share-steak. Ever cooked a tomahawk steak or centre-cut T-bone? They can weigh upwards of two kilos and feed up to eight or more guests as part of your spread. Good butchers who break their own beef or supply the restaurant trade should be able to cut these bad boys for you to order. ~ Richard Gunner of Gourmet Traveller
