Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Twice Baked Potato with a side of Filet Mignon (lots of pics)

edited July 2013 in Beef
Twice baked potatoes were made using bacon (sprinkled with bone suckin rub while it was cooking), sour cream, french shallot and mozza/cheddar cheese.  Baked huge russets potatoes on the egg, removed the top and emptied the flesh using a spoon.  Mixed the flesh with sour cream, shallots, bacon and the cheese.  Filled the potatoes with the mixture and added some more cheese on the top then back on the egg.

The beef tenderloin was rubbed with the steak rub I received from @double in the rub exchange.

    This looks FANTASTIC.  Invite me over any time.  The steaks are just my style, crusted on the outside and red on the inside.  Nice job.

    Me likey.......... How did you do the steaks? Looks like you seared them first and then indirect? Dueling eggs? Or sear, remove, reduce temp etc...?

    @Skiddymarker The egg was too hot for romaine and there was not enough space in the plates. The potatoes were huge!

    @JerkChicken The steaks were seared direct @850F for 60 seconds on side #1, 60 seconds on side #2 then repeated one more time on side #1 and #2.  Went indirect with the platesetter for 8 more minutes flipping every 2 minutes. Rested for 10 minutes under a loose piece of foil.

    Looks like you nailed it!  =D> Excellent job! 

    Did you cook and hold the steak or potatoes or do you have two Eggs in your grill arsenal? Always interested in how people do multi-item cooks.

    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.

    @caliking yes, beets with olive oil and fleur de sel

    @jfm0830 I only have one egg.  I started by baking the potatoes indirect.  Removed them and covered loosely with foil in a pan.  Removed the platesetter (I have a woo2) and increased temp to sear the steaks then installed the platesetter again and finished indirect.  While the steaks were resting, I placed the potatoes back on the egg.
