    WOW that looks great Beli. Maybe you should have cooked first but Steve's looked dang good also. I'm sure the Mini will belong to your lovely daughter very soon.

    I should have added that my youngest daughter also took possession of the mini - it is "her" egg.

    Any time I am cooking on the others she always has to check "her" egg to see how her imaginary cook is progressing. She's only 4 so not quite old enough to cook yet.

    My 6 year old cooks on the medium, but she enjoys the prep work and watching more than the actual cooking. I actually got a custom handle with her nickname put on the medium. I need to do one for the mini too I guess. My youngest will be 7 or 8 by the time LawnRanger gets caught up. :P

    Time spent cooking with the kids is absolutely priceless.

    TKS Zippy...it was a really nice day ..and if I told you when I had finished the cook and removed the meat foiled it and put it in an ice box...I forgot to take the finished photo on the egg....so I had to put it back..... :pinch: ..just for the photo

    Hi Jay.....TKS.... do you have a recipe for the shrimp burgers?.....
    ·
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Mike
    I noticed in one of your photos you pulled the thermometer out of the Mini and put the clip outside the dome...I suppose it is to give you some more internal space....I was wondering if it affects the thermometer reading??
