12 year old Cooks up a Storm - for Real!

What a day to cook...cold, hard rain, and windy. I'm talking about that horizonal rain that feels like needles when it hits you. But - the 12 year old son (Young David) was a real trooper and stuck to it for many hours...checked temp every 30 minutes on the minute. He was on a mission! :)

Last night - we picked up a nice 6# Top Sirloin Roast and YD said he'd cook it. Earlier today - before the weather got nasty - we did some prep on the meat. Nothing special - just trimmed it up a little and rubbed it down with some Garlic, Salt, and Pepper

We woke up Scooby Doo - gave him a big mouthful of lump Scooby Snacks - and then stuck the tall GrateMates and the ring in his mouth...with an aluminum drip pan too. He wasn't to thrilled with this snack :laugh:

Scooby was whining bad wanting some food - so we gave him a chunk of meat

Here's the Chef for the day - but he was too busy giving an interview with the Xbox to smile for the camera - just wait until you see what this kid did!

Well - after we pulled it out of Scooby's mouth - we sliced it thin for some Great Steak Hoagies- here's his cook

Game time - Plated on our finest china again with melted provolone - lettuce - and spicey mustard - added some doritos - and to save a few calories - check out the Diet Coke Chub

Also did some real oatmeal and raisin cookies on the mini - just didn't get any pics - the entire meal was pretty awesome.

    Jimmy, like I said earlier - nice time with the family and food looks good too.

    We're about to get your rain. Flood warning already in place just waiting for the storm to get hear...anytime now.
  • Great Job! I am going to get my grandsons involved! I think the pizzas will get them going! (I don't care for pizza pesonally but will eat a tons to get them going!)

    A proud moment...great for a dad to spend time teaching the finer points of BBQ...nice :)
  • Bill - it's a ton of water! I just jumped in my bassboat to get to the shower! :laugh:

    We got alot of water. Lanier is at full pool or the winter! The fish have a real discombobulated look on their lips right now! :)

    Great job. Love to see the kids involved.

    My kids are usually off playing with the neighborhood kids - I keep hoping they will take an interest, but so far they are content to let me do.

    Results looked great.

  • Hungry - You'll start liking pizza if you do a BBQ pizza on the egg with just a hint of wood in the lump. We did a bbq chicken pizza with honey bbq sauce and a thin crust. Addded cilantro and diced onions - WOW! Doesn't taste like pizza...more like a open face bbq sammich! :)

  • LOL - Young Dave is loving the compliments! :laugh: He just asked if he could do some pizzas tomorrow night. When I asked - "here or at the Cici's Buffet" - Man, you talk about a lost look on a kids face but the answer was classic. Dave said - "we'll do them on the egg if we can make a dessert pizza too"! :laugh:

    You gotta love it...

    Too funny - probably what my kids would say too.

    The only time they get to go there is when the grandparents take them.

    My kids love making their pizzas - they can put just exactly what they want on them.

    So I end up making 6 pies for the 6 of us, and we all have leftovers.

  • dude these are the memories you will cherish when u are old like me enjoy
  • :woohoo: a STAR is born B) better get another Egg 'cause that one is his, now! :evil:
  • DrZaiusDrZaius Posts: 1,481
    That is awesome. I try to get my daughter cooking with me as much as possible. Keep it up.
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!
  • Better get a second fridge! When his buddies discover how good the vittles are they will call your place "home". My 19 year old son eats pulled pork like he is eating a bowl of cereal. I've had my egg less than a year and he asked why I waited so long to get one!
