London Broil - 1st Forum Post - 2nd EGGperience

I'm new to the forum and a new EGG owner, so pardon any missteps I may make. Feel free to point out where I can improve.

Sunday was the 2nd time I've fired up the EGG after getting it at EGGtoberfest. I like cooking London Broil, slicing and incorporating into a salad.

Threw it onto the grill at about 675.

Seared it for 4 min and flipped. Realized when I flipped 4 was probably a minute or so too long

Seared the other side for 3 min, flipped and roasted for another 3 min. Pulled it, foil wrapped and rested for 5 min, it ended up medium well.

Here is the side seared for 4 min

And the side seared for 3 min

Sliced enough to get lunch going

Quickly thrown together salad with twice baked leftover potatoes and a little broccoli/onion stir fry made for a very good and filling lunch.

I can't wait to find out what else will end up better just because it's being cooked on the EGG!

    If thats your first cook and your first post I would no be critisizing ANYTHING! The slightly char on one side was nearly gone after rest and the pics look like you have been taking food pics for some time. Only advice I would give is some folks have problems with burning there gasket doing those high temp cooks on the first couple of lightings. I f you didn't great. Outside of that great start!! :woohoo:

  • That's a good looking broil! Most likely you'll soon be using your egg come rain, shine, snow ... hurricane ... and you'll get a feel for exactly how you want things to come out .... judging by your pics ... looks like you are already there!

    Hmm, what will end up better because it was cooked on the EGG.......almost everything.

    Nothing to criticize on that cook. It looks a lot better than my first cook, or probably my tenth.

    Welcome and enjoy. There are a lot of good cooks here to learn from (and there are people just like me too).

    I appreciate the compliments and suggestions. I really did not want to do high temp cooking out of the gate, but delayed on getting the plate setter and got too eager wanting to try it out.

    I want to do something low/slow next, but I also want to give pizza a whirl.
  • KMagnus,

    Way to go!...Damn the torpedos and gaskets. Great cook and don't be afraid to try anything.
