Things that make you go "Heee"

Just finished my final exam last night so it's no school for me until the end of August (no compelling courses offered this summer). This makes me want to say, "hooray" but I would rather be saying, "Heeee!!!" One way to facilitate this change, I've found, is through food from the BGE. The only meat I have at my apartment currently are some frozen wings and some frozen chopped meat.[p]Any suggestions for a tasty menu item that will make me say, "heee?" I want something that I don't usually cook. This eliminates burgers, dogs, steaks, ribs, pork chops, wings, chicken breasts, and sausages. I'm actually thinking of making squid!!![p]Cornfed

    Cornfed, I just finished making a tiny roast in the mini. A 1-1/2 lb round roast. Soaked it for a few hours in that light soy sauce, olive oil, lemon combo. Then coated it with some char-crust (roto-rooter flavor or whatever it is called).Stuck it over a tiny drip pan and let it cook for about 45 mins. Just took a bite. Oh lord it's good. I mean really good.

    Stick with the hogs and do a ham. Run a fully cooked ham into the Egg at 250F and smoke until it reaches 120F, about 15 minutes per pound. Glaze it if you like the last 30 minutes.

  • Cornfed,
    I vote for the Prime Rib .... SSSHHEEEEEEE!!

    what do u use for a stone on the small? or do u use the grill?

    Smokin' Todd,[p]Pizza on the small requires a custom setup that is not hard to create. I use a standard (not the thin type) firebrick cut in three equal pieces. Cut across the length. These act as the spacers to set the pizza stone just above the opening lip level. On these I place two stacked 12" BGE pizza stones. It works like a charm.[p]Email me if you need more info.[p]Spin
