Gasser Experience

Right now I'm visiting relatives in Tampa (Temple Terrace) and we decided to cook some strips on the grill. Since I've been talking about the BGE so much lately, I got nominated to do the steak cooking. But first off the brother-in-law had to clean the gasser ... too bad I didn't have the camera handy ... what an absolute mess. Back to cooking, I decided to do my best at the TRex method. S&P and olive oil on the steaks, I fired up the gasser and got it up to a whopping 425 (or so the therm said), put the steaks on and they immediately were engulfed in flame. Blah, blah, blah. After all was said and done, I ended up cooking them 4 + 4, rest 13, 4 + 4. They were done to perfection, everyone raved, and to the Egger (that would be me) they might as well have been cooked under the over broiler. [p]When I get back home, a real TRex strip on the Egg is going to be the first meal. What a incredible difference there is between the Egg and a gasser.[p]Dave's In Tampa.

    Dave's Not Here,[p]Hey in this case it surely wasn't the cooker. It was the cook! Seriously that was very impressive.
    But IM sure it would have been real sweet to have that EGG though, huh? :)[p]ST

    Dave's Not Here,[p]Sorry you had to battle the gasser. Glad your folks were impressed, though. Just imagine if you had brought a Mini along . . . some people just don't know what they're missing.[p]Good luck on that Egged steak when you return.[p]TRex

    Dave's Not Here, [p] I just got back from Tampa on Monday. There's a BGE store there in case you needed to pick up any odds and ends or show the relatives around. My brother said it used to be called the BGE store but now it's called The Outdoor Kitchen Store (3925 West Kenndy Blvd. Tampa) Stopped in and said hello. Seemed to be friendly folks until they realized I wasn't there to buy a new grill. Just a gasket... When they heard that, they were on to the next customer. My brother was a little pissed because he wanted to hear the rundown on the Egg but I reminded them that they are in sales and a lot of profit isn't made off a gasket.
    I took him to the ceramic cooker area (yeh, other brands are sold there too) and gave him the rundown. Funny thing was an older couple who were looking at a high dollar gasser started listening in and wound up joining in on my sales pitch! Told them all about versatility of the Egg and of course, the great folks here on the forum. I feel confident that an Egg was purchased by them after I left. At least I hope so.
    Enjoy your trip!!! Mac
