Tonight: Scallops, Raging River, Woodford & A Burned Foot

Well, we have not had the opportunity to egg in awhile so we decided to do a quick cook tonight: seared scallops. Prepped with white wine, splash of EVOO, and a proper dosage of Dizzy Pig Raging River. I got the egg up to 550* with RO and just a few wood chips. Tossed them in the wok on a raised grid and cooked 2-3 mins on each side. 

I was cooking south carolina style (without shoes) and on my first flip the sole of my foot was crunching down on something and it felt cold. In a nanosecond I realized a coal jumped out of the bottom vent and was on the deck. PAINFUL.

After nursing my pain with a little more Woodford we enjoyed a delicious meal with potatoes and zucchini. No pain, no gain.

The camera still made it out:

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but when working out, we always said, "no pain, no gain."

    Nice looking cook either way, love that woodford double oaked.

    Don't know how the "foot" finished, but the scallops look perfect!! Very nice.
