porterhouse update...

Wise One & Timothy M2, Thanks for the help. The porterhouse was perfect. Wise One... the 3-3-4 method was just right for the inch and a half thick piece of meat. Medium rare just like you said. Tim M. great website. Alot of useful information....Thanks Again, MikeS
P.S. Now what do I do with my Weber Gas Grill????????????

    Sell it as it's a little too expensive to use as a storage bin for your cooking utensils. Many have done just that but putting a little cash back in your pocket never hurts. (more meat money, or accessories for egg)

    MikeS, whether it be a Weber, a Charmglow, a Ducanne or any other gassy it is best to sell it or give it to the "uninformed" before winter sits in as mice think it is cool to have an unused residence nearby where the Smart Folks live! (since they bought a BGE...get it?)

    MikeS,[p]The perfect use for a gas grill is to cook some Jimmy Dean or equivalent sausage patties. You then chop that up in a food processor to use as a pizza topping on the great pizza you can cook on the egg.[p]The sausage puts off too much grease to dirty up your egg with.[p]Cheers,

    Awwww MAN! Sausage cooked on the egg direct at 250 is heaven. Smokin Todd cooked some at the Eggfest that would knock your socks clean off. Burn the grease off the coals before cooking any lighter meats! I have been doing all my camping sausages on Junior this way. AWWWWWW!!!![p]Sorry. I lost my mind.[p]yeeeee ha.

    MikeS,[p]I would keep that gas grill. It can be very useful for keeping items warm while add'l items are cooking. A pretty neat setup I saw was a gas grill that had quarry tiles placed on the racks. They would preheat the tiles on med/low heat, then keep it as low as it would go to keep calzones and pizzas warm while the others were cooking. [p]Another take on keeping the gas grill is it's nice to have a backup cooker at times.[p]Ashley
  • YB,[p]Cool little table for small egg. I assume you made the cutout but where'd you buy that table/cart from. I'd like to get one myself, although small egg for me needs to be mobile a lot of the time that'd be good for @ home.[p]Jeff

    <p />Jeff E.,
    That is a 30 year old typewriter table i painted and put a Corian top with drop down sides on.I used 1/4" stainless steel threaded rods with acorn nuts to hold the shelves in place...It works great.Below is a couple pictures of the bar stool i made to travel with.
