B) :laugh: Sitting here this morning thinking about Father's Day and what it means to be a Father ( I have a almost 14 yr old daughter :unsure: ) More importantly I was wondering from all my fellow Eggheads...what would be your ideal meal to cook on the Egg since none of us want to eat someone else's food at a restaurant :lol: I would love to hear what some of you think ! Again, Happy Father's Day to all !

Michael in Murfreesboro, TN GO BUCKEYES ! don't hate me for that !

    I'm doing one of my favorite cooks - ribs and beans.

    I did burgers and hobo taters yesterday.

    I agree with you about not wanting to eat anyone else's food, and especially what it means to be a father, and how to be the best one I can. Not an easy job, to be sure.

    I used to think brisket was my favorite egg meal, then I realized I like pork butt just as much, come to think of it...ribs and Trex'd steaks share the #1 spot too, along with chicken, meatloaf, salmon, ribs, pork loin, turkey, etc, etc ........ get the idea? They're all great, and they're all better than the restaurants.
  • :woohoo: That sounds really good ! Thanks for a very tasty response !
  • Thank you :blush: :whistle: :) I appreciate the great reply. This is what Eggin is all about
  • I get it...loud and clear ;) I am hopefully gettting a BBQ Guru in the next couple of weeks and I will be trying a Boston Butt for the second time (first on my own. Bente did the first one on my Egg a couple of months ago) And once I get the Butt figured out, I want to tackle a Brisket ! It will be fun trying !

    My ideal meal would be:

    Bacon-wrapped scallops
    Spicy and teriyaki shrimp on skewers
    Prime rib with horseradish sauce
    Twice-baked potatoes
    A really good cheesecake from Hank's (here in STL)

    Instead, we're just eating leftover pork loin - Portabello/pepper:


    And potato/asparagus/pepper salad:
  • Wow, what a night/day! Not sure what a Bachanal is, so I don't feel too bright right now. I will look forward to seeing those photos of the days cooking ! There is nothing better than a great meal on the Egg ! Thanks for the post
  • AWESOME :woohoo: Those are great photos of some truely delicious food ! You will have fellow Eggers going crazy that's for sure ;) Thanks for the pix and response !
  • :laugh: Man does that look good. Great picture. I need to post some of my stuff but not sure how to just yet. I just signed with Photobucket so hopefully I can attempt to come up with some decent pictures. Yours look good enough to eat right off the screen ! Thanks for the input to my question. Happy Father's Day !
