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!

Guinness Stew and Homemade Bread in Dutch Oven

With the days getting colder I felt it was time to get back into some comfort food.  I've made Guinness stew on the egg before and was very happy with it so to see if I could build on that I decided I'd also try and make no knead bread in the dutch oven on the egg too.  While the stew was good as always and some of the bread was saved to make the meal.  I'll post another thread about the bread  and I'll let the photos of the meal speak for themselves.

    @caliking well I have never made it before today - and it didn't go as planned.  I wrote about it here: http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1158041/dutch-oven-no-knead-bread-sos-help#latest

    I was able to shave the bottom and save almost all of the middle section.  The taste was really well developed but clearly something wasn't right - either the dough wasn't right, or the instructions.  I'm hoping others with some bread experience on the egg will give me some tips.

    Looks great!  Is the guiness stew something like this?


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @SmokeyPitt - that is it except I added 1 stalk of celery and doubled the garlic.  I used a bbq rub on the beef that had a bit of heat so I skipped the cayenne, instead of water with the tomato paste I used beef stock and in the last 20 minutes before serving I added 4 small potatoes peeled and diced into small chunks.

    It was a great meal and good lunches for a few days this week.
