Well, the family has requested that I don't do anymore briskett, pulled pork or turkey for a while. (That just sounds crazy to me) I did get carried away and did a lot of each.[p]So, then I made ABT's but I was the only one that could eat them. They couldn't even eat the wimpy ones with the membranes and seeds removed.[p]So, I need to branch out a bit. Has anyone tried stuffed bell peppers? Stuffed tomotoes? We are also trying to keep the calories at a reasonable level. They were all acting like Jalapeños stuffed with cheese and pulled pork, and then wrapped in bacon wasn't diet food or something..[p]Also, I have some bone in Chicken breasts. I always do boneless breasts. Any thoughts on the Bone-in breasts would be great also.[p]Have a nice weekend everyone..[p]

    James,
    Chicken and fish are both wonderful prepared on the Egg. Search the recipes for "spatchcock chicken" or "beer butt chicken" and you'll think you're in heaven. Diet food, too! Turkey breasts are so easy it's amazing. Any kind of fish is great grilled, but salmon's especially suited...use a maple and brown sugar glaze with Dizzy Pig Raging River Rub, or try my dijon bourbon recipe in Bill Wise's cookbook. Of course, there's always squid. Always, always squid...(big smile here, NB!)
    Cheers,
    G.

    James,
    I've been buying those large stuffing mushrooms and putting a tablespoon of pesto with some extra parmesan cheese in them. They're yummy. I toss the mushrooms in extra virgin olive and grill direct at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes,or until soft. Large portabellas work great also, but scrape out the gills to make room for the stuffing.
    Maybe more of an appetizer, but the meaty texture of a whole grilled mushroom can make it a main course with maybe a salad on the side.
