Tonight's Cook and Semi Clean Burn...

hapsterhapster Posts: 7,420
Simple cook tonight... An almost 3lb London broil. Down on the spider for 4min. side and then finished at regular grid height.

Dinner is finished and I'm sitting here burning a stick listening to the Tigers game while I cautiously do a little bit of a clean burn.

My plate setter needs it and the entire interior of my egg is black with a wicked sheen, even down in the firebox. Just a little scared letting her rip wide open with the crack in the base. Slowly taking her up above 500 and don't want to go much above 600. Figure on letting burn like for an hour or two then shutting it down.

    I know you are enjoying that "stick", but how was the London Broil ?  Looks darn good.

    The London broil turned out pretty good. Medium on the rarer side...

    Thanks!

    Looks good @hapster we were in a tornado warning/watch during the 5 p.m. to 7 p.m hours and it was raining pretty heavy so no egging tonight for me.  Going to go out to the garage and have a "stick" here in a couple of minutes. Takeout pizza for dinner works for the kids but upsets Dad.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    Read your earlier post and then was at the store --  and saw a nice London Broil but was a little worried about pulling the trigger??  I'm thinking it must be handle like "tri tip"?

    I would agree. I usually sear for 4 or 5 min a side and then move it up and flip it every 4 min till I hit the temp I want. Usually just coat it good with some Montreal Steak seasoning.

    Looks good.  Tomato from the garden?

    @Scottborasjr glad to hear you are okay. Storms like that are scary. You'll survive the pizza delivery for one night :)

    Nice Broils!  Careful with that sick egg!

    I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.

    No garden here... Probably kill most things :)

    Just have a great produce section.

    Thanks @lakewade :)

    I haven't put a garden in yet because we've been having frost advisories lately.  I'm going to try on Monday.  Coldest Spring I can remember.  Global warming?  BS!

    Looks great Hap. Is that a Maduro?

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Thanks! It is a maduro Banker... Nice smoke, slow and even burn, lasted me about 2-1/2 hours last night while I listened to a few ballgames
  • TexanOfTheNorthTexanOfTheNorth Posts: 3,917
    I enjoy a nice Macanudo Maduro from time to time... it's a good smoke. I see you're a Tiger's fan. They've got a potent lineup with Cabrera, Fielder and the rest. I'm a Ranger's fan myself; pay for the cable sports package and watch as many of the games as I can. Enjoy the rest of the season!

    Thanks... yep, the Tigers should do well this year. I have the MLB app on my phone and can listen to every game. Grew up listening to the Phillies on radio all the time, also a Phillies fan, so I actually prefer listening to the games over watching them most times. I just plug the phone into my Bose dock and relax
