Wonderful Mothers' Day Cook

I've been owning and cooking on my Egg for a little over a year, and I am still impressed with this little device. For Mothers' day dinner, I had planned my most ambitious cook to date: Bacon wrapped scallops, Baked potatos, baked Vidallia onion, corn on the cob, and filet minion. I fired up the Egg to 325° and put the on 'taters (wrapped in foil after jump starting them ala C~W) and the Vidallia (peeled, wrapped in foil with butter, salt, and pepper). I then put on the scallops. This proved to be an adventure. As the bacon fat started to render, the flames started to grow(there seemed to be a direct corralation ;-)) After a couple of minutes, I took the scallops off and unwrapped them and then put them back on for a couple more minutes. After the 'taters and onion had been on for about an hour, the ears of corn went on (btw, the temp had crept up to about 450°). The corn had been soaking for about an hour. Once the corn went on, the temp came down quickly to 350°. The veggies stayed on for about another 15 minutes. After the veggies came off, I added more lump and bumped the temp up to 700° and put on the filets for 3-3-4. This was my first try w/ veggies on the egg, but I am sure it won't be the last.
As an aside, I tried to use this opprtunity to try and convince she-who-must-be-obeyed that I 'needed' another Egg to comliment my large. She just rolled her eyes and told me to save my money. Hey, at least she did not say 'NO'!
I love my egg![p]Chipper

    Chipper,
    If you liked the veggies on the Egg, get yourself a wok. I was with a dealer this last Saturday for an Egg demo. They used a wok in both a lg Egg and a med Egg. To say I was impressed, would be putting it mildly! I gotta have one! It really was simple and the food was great!!!![p]BTW, the demo was a great success! People were amazed at what the Egg can do. Little surprise though! After nearly 3 yrs of Eggin', I'm still amazed at what I can do with it and how well everything turns out.[p]Keep workin' on the Missus! She'll finally give in and then be tickled pink that you've got flexibility now to add to meals.[p]Cheers, [p]Dr. Chicken
