<p />Finally got a bunch of photos back. I will post them as i get them scanned. Here are some shots I took on Christmas. Mr. Toad's Pork Loin ala baby egg. It was a hit. For those that haven't tried it, it is a great presentation, and as tasty as you can get!!

    Nature Boy,[p]That is absolutely gorgeous![p]Of course, given your reputation, when I saw 'snail photos' I figured...[p]Cathy[p]PS Escargots a la Egg? Why not?

    Nature Boy,[p]I too was thinking you cooked snails - yuck!! Might as well eat worms too.[p]That picture is great - you could win the "BBQ picture of what I cooked" contest - if we had one. Even the bacon strips look good.[p]Tim

  • Cat,[p]You echoed my sentiments exactly. I was expecting a cast iron skillet full of the little devils swimming in lemongrass broth or some such concoction.[p]Regards,

    Cat,
    Didn’t some of our Florida Eggers have that problem? [p]Here is the recipe for the Eggscargot that found:[p]1 dozen eggs shells
    2 dozen rubber bands
    Lots of Garlic
    Butter[p]Stuff each eggshell half with a rubber band. Wrap the stuffed shells in foil.[p]Rub the garlic on and butter on a piece of French bread. Wrap the bread in foil.
    Place the bread on the egg while it is heating up. Flip once.
    Heat the egg to 700. [p]Put Steak on grill and cooks usual. When the steak is done, place a pat of butter on each steak.[p]Slice the bread and serve with the steak.[p]Oh, I almost forgot the Eggscargot. Take the foil pouch and place in the indoor green receptacle.[p]Actually, there is a farm on the East Coast that grows some of the best snails in the world. I think 20/20 did an article on them once.[p]Eat More Beef,
    RhumAndJerk

    Tim M,
    Thanks! Actually I like snails. My wife's family cooks a very spicy snail soup that is excellent. Tomatoes, tons of spices, and lots of smails. Yum. Now y'all got me thinking![p]Snails in wine, butter, garlic in a cast iron skillet on the egg!![p]Have a 9.5 pound chunk-o-chest to go on this evening, and some ribs to go on soon. Below zero windchill is perfect egging weather!

    Nature Boy,[p]When it warms up here there are many snails under rocks and dead logs -- I'll send you some.[p]Just kidding. I am way to picky about food to try grasshoppers, ants, frogs,snake, rat, any type of bug or mollusks of the class Gastropoda (snails). [p]Tim

    Nature Boy,
    I've eaten a lot worse things at survival school during Viet Nam. Besides, snails with a lot of butter and garlic and hot French bread are GREEEEEAAAAAATTTTT! I hadn't thought about doing them on the EGG. Well, there's the balmy Palmetto state weekend ahead.
