Are they still using those old boxes.  Must have over ordered Grin Grin

Do a search on YouTube and you should find the video of Thommo

The video was shot just behind the factory in Adelaide.

It saves them have a instruction booklet as all the info is on the box. Thommo must have passed on a long time ago now.   But at least  I have one of his recipe books Cheesy Cheesy

Thomso died on Boxing Day 2011.  I got a phone call late in the afternoon and was later asked to join the guys on the radio at 4BC to have a chat about him.

This is the simmer ring we have been using and it helps to lower the heat.

Hi Dave (Smokeydk)
Went to the camp store  re my gas ring burner. Staff say I should be able to turn the gas down far enough with a tap for each ring.
I also have been watching Thommo on you tube. It is a shame he is not alive I think I could have sent him small stirrers for mixing as he does make bit of a mess using a bigger stirrer  Grin Grin
regards Kev Wink

He was a real character Kev.  You would have liked him.

Do you know he rarely used a stirrer so most likely could have done with some.

He had a really large butchers knife that he just about used for everything.  It was his stirrer as well as his cutter.
