    My menu, which doubles as fathers' day & my birthday!

    Appetizer: seared diver scallops with jalapeno cilantro infused butter sauce and grilled tiger prawn cocktail

    Entree: Seared 35-day dry aged bone-in ribeye steak with a horseradish cream sauce, served with asparagus & hollandaise sauce, garlic Parmesan mashed potatoes, and grilled corn on the cob.

    Dessert: not sure, my wife is supposed to be making something (hopefully the strawberry cream tart I hinted at earlier in the week!). we'll see. lol

    I am co-hosting a Texas BBQ for about 20 folks on Tellico Lake. Our menu is

    Beef sausage (home ground)
    Beef ribs
    Texas pit beans
    grilled corn
    white bread (home made)

    Weird thing is I will be Eggless! Using my co-host's Stumps, Klose, and Weber. Should be fun.

    Would love to see pics of that cook!

    Absolutely! And it will be all for me, of course I will share if the family wants some. Heading to the store in the morning as well.

    I am thinking wings and ribs. That should keep me busy, after I go on a nice long hike early in the a.m.

    I live in Knoxville. Maybe I'll bag my cook and crash yours! It sounds great!
  • Hi Chris,

    Sounds great, but guess you have to convert some folks to the Egg today....Have a Great Day..

  • Best of Luck....Hope the first overnight cook has gone well...

    Happy Fathers Day.
  • I've been planning for several days now for today. We are having Surf and Turf:

    Scallops and Ribeye
    Tossed salad
    Mashed potatoes

    I'm going to wrap a few scallops each in bacon, turkey bacon and prosciutto and see what the family likes best.
  • I am interested in hearing about the Jalapeño Cilantro infused butter sauce is prepared. I did a very nice Spicy Grilled Jalapeño and Lime marinade last night. It was excellent.

    Have to work today, but coming home to cook up another ABT and stuffed mushroom pizza. Been craving this all week :woohoo:

  • I think I will follow your lead though think I will go w/Applewood bacon on the scallops.

    Best of Luck and have a great day!!!

    Thanks, Happy Fathers Day to you also.

    I have marinated boneless Country Style rib meat going in the Smoker Egg, baked taters in the Mini Egg. The beer is in the frig and I have plenty of ice for makin Gin Martini's. DianaQ has promised me an apple crisp with vanilla ice cream. :)
  • If my Applewood smoked bacon wrapped scallops turn out as nice yours on your web site, I know what everyone will get in the future.

    Did a chicken, in my vertical CI roaster, surrounded with carrots, celery, peppers and mushrooms along with fresh corn on the cob on the grid.
    One floor down was the appetizer. Did a Cajun Shrimp done up with onion and lemon slices.
