Weber grillet flæskesteg

At grille en flæskesteg på weberen er noget nemmere end i ovnen.

Flæskestegen skal grilles med indirekte varme, samt have en drypbakke under sig. Jeg genbruger gerne alu bakker fra fx frosne varer eller andet godt. Det er trodsalt noget billigere end at give Kr. 100,- for 10 bakker. Det kan stærkt anbefales at bruge stege termometer. På pakken stod der at den skulle være 62grader inden i. Jeg fik det bedste resultat ved 75grader. Der står typisk på de fleste stegetermometre at en svinesteg skal være 75grader.

Grillen startes op med fx grillstarterter, langsomt brændende briketter kan anbefales.

  • 1 stk flæskesteg, jeg mener denne var 1½kg
  • Groft salt
  • Laurbærblade

Stegen efterridses ned til kødet, groft salt gnides i og får lidt laurbærblade.

 

Når de øverste kul i grilstarteren er næsten hvide fordeles briketterne i siden på grillen. Kulholdere er en fordel. Placer drypbakken i midten, og madristen oven på. Luk låget til, og lad grillen stå og varme op i ca 5-10 min. Placer nu stegen i midten af grillen, og har du et grill stege termometer kan det anbefales at placere dette så spidsen skubbes parallelt med sværen så spidsen når midten. Hvis stegens svær, ikke har et nogenlunde vandret niveau, så placer nogle kugler lavet af fx alufolie under stegen, så den kommer til dette.

Alt afhængigt at hvor hurtigt kul/briketter brænder skal der efterfyldes nogle. Kig evt i vejledningen til din grill for bedste resultat. Jeg bruger heatbeads og efterfylder 3-4stk i hver side pr time.

Efter 1½ time så denne steg næsten færdig ud, men sværen var stadig blød. Den indre temperatur var omkring 68-70grader. 15 min efter var temperaturen nået 75grader og sværen sprød. På billedet kan ses nederste højre hjørne mangler lidt endnu.

Klar til servering.

Stegen var dejlig saftig, sprød svær og smagte godt.

Som tilbehør kan man spise de sædvanlige brunkartofler, eller hvis det skal være nemt, flødekartofler. Kartoffelsalat er også godt.

Dette kan også gøres til jul, pas dog på at grillen ikke blæser omkuld eller at det regner. Regnen køler grillen ned.

Use a C= 1530 datasette as tape audio player

How to listen to audio using your Commodore C1530 datasette, and why.

Please read through the whole post, as there are some things in the end, you might want to start with.

If you’ve ever had the doubt whether there was audio or data on a casette tape, and you’ve only had your Commodore computer and a datasette, and of course a computer to work with. This might come in handy for you.

First of all, you’ll need some kind of connector for the equipment you want to use. I’m using a standard 3,5mm minijack connector. Stereo/mono doesn’t matter as there’s only one channel. If you have a stereo connector, make sure you use the left channel then. You can use the cable from a cheap set of earpieces, one item less to solder.

This is not a stand alone solution, you need to supply power to the datasette, this can come from the Commodore computer, or a stable power supply.

Beware, you might have a different version than this. This one I have here use a Goldstar Lm324, it’s a quad-amp chip. The schematic isn’t precisely the same as the model, but it’s close enough.

Basically you just attach the cable to the output of one of the amps. On the shcematic below I’ve marked Pin 1 and “Pin 7” well actually it’s the output going to the Commodore computer, but I call it pin 7 here. I’ve taken Pin 1 instead of Pin 7 as the voltage level is alittle less there. On the output of Pin 7 you get around 3v peak-to-peak, and you get around 2v peak to peak on pin 1. the normal input of a soundcard is around 1v peak to peak. So just make sure that the input volume is way down.

 

Here is an older picture where Ground and Signal line (pin7) is marked. I did a little testing here, and it’s way too much output. But it’s doable if you don’t want to solder on pin 1.

As you can see I’m using a stereo cable/minijack connector, but I’m only using left channel. Here it’s still Pin 7.

 

Sorry for the image quality. I’ve added a small extension cord to the left channel of the audio cable. It’s the green one you can see in the middle of the pcb, soldered to Pin 1 of the goldstar lm324 amp chip.

 

Before you start soldering, you should take the audio cable and stick through the rubber ring.

This is a real easy hack to do, you only need to know how to solder, and have access to a solder of course.

I haven’t tried transfering data from tape to PC into a tap file using this method, but it might be doable. If anyone tries this, I’d love to hear about it.
