Haha. Anyone from RM is welcome to dinner! Give me a bit of notice though...

Dave - they call it 'potate douce' here. Same thing though. Cool huh? I also have a company that imports me NZ lamb and venison too (french lamb and venison being sh1te!). Everyone knows the best produce comes from NZ;)

Nice! :D
Just having a standard kiwi bbq as it's such a nice summer day.
Lamb chops, venison sausages, Assparagus, Zuchinni's and portobello on the BBQ, corn on the cob and washed down with a bottle of cloudy bay Sav.

Hell yeah!

Miss the kiwi barbies.

Have a Tui for me (I know, basic beers for me!).

I'm gonna build me a great big rock and slate bbq for this coming summer. Big enough to grill for 20+ people. I'd like to add some kind of smoking chamber onto it too. Not sure how though...

For sure!

Drop me an email and we'll sort you out with a great deal.

Have you had enough of the stateside snow? I thought you guys were having a great season... The snow is pretty damn good here. Did a bit of hiking yesterday - fresh tracks.....

It would be cool to have you over.
