    billex:[p]Brush the potatoes with olive oil and season with a rub or seasoning salt of your choice. In a preheated cooker cook the potatoes for about an hour prior to grilling the steaks. You can pull the potatoes and cover with foil until the steaks are ready.[p]Regarding the steaks, ask your Princess what she would like.

    billex:[p]Sorry, 325º/350º and turn them a couple of times. The skin may start to burn a bit if you place them in the center of the grill over the "hot spot". If this happens, move the potatoes to the outer edges of the grill.

    billex,
    I put my potatoes in the microwave on the baked potato setting (about 7 minutes each) to get them about 85% done. Then I olive oil them and sprinkle a liberal amount of kosher salt on them before wrapping in foil and placing on the Egg while it is warming up for the steak. By the time the steak is ready, the potatoes are perfect. Works every time.[p]Spring Chicken

    SC:[p]Try those taters once without the foil and microwave and 100% on the cooker!

    billex,
    Glad to hear you are putting your egg to good use. The low and slow John and I set up came off 18 hours later (at 205 degrees internal temp) and we had quite a feast. When is your father-in-law joining the ranks?

  • Hi billex,[p]I tried a Perini Ranch Steak Rub last month that worked out very good.[p]1 tablespoon corn starch or flour
    2 tablespoons salt
    4 teaspoons coarse ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    4 teaspoons garlic powder
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon granulated beef stock base[p]Makes about 1/2 cup
    They suggest applying the rub and cooking immediately so the salt doesn't pull moisture out of the meat.
