    KennyG,[p]No photo tonight Kenny, but we'll sear 3 NY Strips tomorrow with "twice fried" french fries, and a salad made up of spinach, grilled radicchio brushed with balsamic vinegar and roasted peppers ... and of course a sourdough boule.[p]The small will grill the steaks and the mini will do the radicchio and peppers.[p]Happy New Year all,
    Puj and Mrs.Puj

    KennyG,
    I can't post a photo, but tonight's fare is Prime Rib roast, bone in. I'll start it on the small at 600¡ to sear, then over to my large to finish off at around 325¡. In the meantime, when the small cools down a bit, I'll put on a nice big baker for me and a huge sweet 'tater for my wife. I'll be seated beside my roaring chimnea sipping Jack Daniels while it all cooks. Rounding things out will be some broccoli/cauliflour salad. This is my first prime rib, so I'm hopeful that it will turn out good. i'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

  • KennyG,
    No pix - one of my New Years resolutions![p]On the Egg's now - one turkey breast and one spiral cut hammy. To be followed by some Atomic Buffalo Turds and some shrimpers.[p]Happy New Years to all![p]LVM

    Vogs, that looks interesting. Care to share the recipe?

  • KennyG,
    Oh sure. I didn't think of that! :-) Well, we had two lovely, and I mean really lovely ribeye steaks. Just plain and simple Montreal Steak seasoning. With a salad, baked potatoes and peas. [p]By the way, is just me or does anyone else notice that if you buy a piece of meat at the shop, it doubles in size when you cook it? I swear to heaven that those ribeyes weren't that big in the shop. Crikey, they covered half the dinner plate. It was tough, but I finished mine. Lucky for the dog, the wife has a smaller appetite than me. Woooooof![p]TNW

  • KennyG, no photo, but I took left over leg of lamb (egged) shredded with garlic, more garlic, and then I added more garlic and some salt. Wife did up some tzaziki (sp???) put this on pita bread with onions and feta cheese! I dare any vampires to come arount here! Best gyros ever. Life is good!!

    <p />KennyG,[p]Well.............here's my entree.[p]The wife started hitting the grape juice early and changed her mind a few times about the menu. Baked taters became potato wedges and the salad just conventional. The ravages of Demon grape are knocking on the door as I type. Good thing the movie we rented (Minority Report) doesn't have to be back for a few days[p]Anyway, good eats washed down with a little Yellow tail.[p]Happy New Year![p]Ken and Carol
    "Ken still sober"[p]

  • VogsVogs Posts: 41
    Wise One,[p]I took around one pound of broccoli and mixed it with 1/2 cup olive oil. 1/4 cider vinegar, white pepper & salt to taste. Let sit for about 15 minutes. Mixed broccoli with a cup of grated parmesan cheese. Cooked indirect for 30 minutes at about 250 degrees. Tasted great![p]Vogs

    KennyG,[p]Awesome! I just scarfed down some pork tenderloin prepared simply with salt, pepper, some dried herbs de provence, and lots of fresh rosemary. Grilled direct until about 148* (not on purpose, that's just the temp above 140* that I first noticed with my instant read thermometer). Delicious, though not nearly as pretty as your dinner![p]I'm still completely sober except for the slight NY Jets home playoff game hangover that will be with me until Saturday's game (Go Jets!). This will start to change right now as I pop my first beer of the evening...[p]Happy New Year!
    Cornfed - sober, but not for long...

    <p />Here it is in all its blazing glory! 3 filets with the mustard/salt/pepper treatment. Some king crab legs (for me and EliShark), one lobster tail (for AlexShark who is OBVIOUSLY not keeping kosher this evening), and some shrimp to keep it all company.[p]Lots of champagne coming. The butter in the warmers ready to go.[p]Here's to a good year, everyone!

    KennyG,
    What a great setting!

  • mollysharkmollyshark Posts: 1,519
    We're through. It's done. Finished. Kaput. All but a few shrimp and maybe 4 oz of steak. Only casualty was the steak. Got it a little too done for my taste. Fire was deceptively hot. Lobster, crab, and shrimp were to die for. Very nice! It's, yawn, 9 p.m. Midnight? Muuuaaahhh. Maybe if we set the alarm. Gonna watch some MASH reruns on DVD and probably be snoring before the credits hit.

    MollyShark,[p]The dinner sounds, and looks, great. Happy New Year![p]Cornfed - getting further from sober

    Vogs,
    It looks and sounds great, too! How do you keep the cheese from melting off of the broccoli?

  • site1011.jpg
    <p />KennyG,

    JSlot,
    That swordfish looks fantastic!
    A combination of my favorite things.
    What all is in the sauce?[p]Janet[p]

  • VogsVogs Posts: 41
    Steve-O,[p]Most of the cheese managed to stick to the broccoli partly due to the marinade. Also, at that low of a temperature the cheese did not melt all that much.[p]Vgos

    Happy NY to you and yours, too, Chris. The recipe I use is from "Fish & Shellfish Grilled & Smoked" by Karen Adler and Judith Fertig. It is a great book.[p]The buerre blanc (white butter sauce) is fantastic on any fish. Here are the steps to make:[p]1. Bring ¾ cup dry white wine, ¼ cup tarragon vinegar, 1 T. finely chopped shallots, 1 t. dried tarragon to a boil over high heat. Continue to boil until the mixture has reduced to about 2 T.[p]2. Whisk in ¾ cup of heavy cream and bring back to a boil, whisking until the sauce has thickened and will coat the back of a spoon, ~4 mins.[p]3. Reduce heat to low and whisk in 2 sticks of unsalted butter cut into pieces. Add butter slowly until you have a smooth, silky sauce.[p]4. Season to taste with salt and cayenne pepper and serve hot![p]Enjoy!!![p]Jim

    Thanks Jim!
    Hey, any chance you will be able to attend the 2003 Eggfest here in May?? Look forward to finally meeting you. If not, and if our income situation is better next year, I hope to be able to make it down to Jawga in October.[p]Sauce sounds great...thanks again.
