There isn't a lot of room on my apartment balcony for a conventional
BBQ. So instead I have a single burner portable gas stove which packs
into a attache style case. This can be used with skillet, small wok or
a Korean style BBQ plate. The stoves come from a lot of different
makers are an inexpensive (around $AU25)

Ya think? Wonder if ol' Tom likes his internet access. I heard that

BOB, in light of the fact we can't post our spam pics to a non-binary
newsgroup, do the next best thing and post his email addy for the spambots.

We could always email him our pictorial encyclopaedia of SPAM pics <g>

As I said, the idea was to be able to barbecue outdoors, on the
balcony. I can't use the stove as it is fixed in place in the kitchen.

There isn't a lot of room for one of those monster BBQs. So I suggested
a small single burner tabletop gas stove is a good alternative.

ps: I noticed the Korean BBQ plates I previously mentioned are less
than $AU10.00 at the supermarket. These have the advantage that you can
fit them in a dishwasher, unlike the plate on a normal BBQ.

... that I couldn't do indoors?

Well I couldn't BBQ indoors. In Australia a "barbie" is outdoor cooking
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbecue#Etymology>.

The guests would feel shortchaged if it was indoors and it would
inhibit them from barbie customs, such as wearing a beer carton as a
hat. ;-)

On a more practical note, when I tried BBQ style cooking in the
apartment the fire alarm activated.

ps: The WikiPedia BBQ entry is not quite correct in attributing the
phrase "I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you" to Paul Hogan.
In Australia a shrimp is called a "prawn". I recommend prawns lightly
grilled with some vinegar, tomato, garlic and black pepper marinate
<http://www.tomw.net.au/tomoil.htm>.

And, no, I am not selling marinate, the web page just has a free recipe
on it. I am an IT consultant. I put a few recipes and travel stories
on the web site as otherwise all the stuff about metadata and Internet
policy is a bit dull.

Please read the BBQ FAQ. There is no way in hell that you can make BBQ
on a single tabletop burner. BBQ by definition in this group is poor cuts of
meat cooked for a long time at low cooking temperatures. Please describe
how you plan to accomplish that with a single burner stove. Please be
advised
that Korean or Mongolian BBQ bear no resemblance whatsoever to South
Carolina BBQ. (Not that Korean and Mongolian BBQ aren't good. They're just
not American BBQ.)

Uh, no. He doesn't have to describe anything. The group charter
includes grilling. You might want to check minor details like this
before opening your mouth.

We? You got a mouse in your pocket, son?

How original. Would you like me to write your next Usenet post for you
as well?

You're right, Reg, but I think Brick was just trying to get him on the right
track with the terminology, ie what BBQ is. I don't think he was saying that
the OP couldn't post grill-related info here.

You are almost correct Reg. The charter for this group does in fact
include grilling as ontopic posts. However, it does not confuse grilling
with BBQ.

You're right as usual Dave. We do grill here as well as barbecue, but
I'd like to think we know the difference. And that's why I pointed to the
AFB FAQ for reference.

Steve, I'm looking forward to a possibility that I might get a chance to
spend an evening drinking with you and telling hundreds of lies about
the past.
