Beach Fest - pic heavy

My traveling companion and I went to the beach

First the prep
Couple tenderloins, spinach, sweet potato, almonds, peach amaretto preserves, and havarti cheese

After removing silver skin and some fat then stuffing with spinach and almonds

Added sweet potato, preserves, and cheese

Wasn't going to wrap with bacon but I was a little thin in a few spots on the tenderloin - rubbed with Sucklebusters Hog Waller

Loaded the mini, small, a couple chaise lounges, plus a bunch of water and other stuff

Eggs at attention

High winds and plenty seaweed on the beach

First time trying these - worked fine

My traveling companion relaxing and Eggs eggin

Brought the trout chime along B) It was pretty busy with 20+ winds

The tenderloins were on the small

Meanwhile beef spare ribs on the mini - direct at 240

Tenderloin is ready


Transferred the beef ribs to finish at 250 indirect on the Small

Eggcelent day
Arrived at the beach around 10:30
Put the ribs and tenderloin on around 11:30
Cooked, cleaned about a mile of the beach with our buckets and picker, chilled, caught up on some reading, and hit the water several times.
Picked up the eggs around 5:30 and headed to the house
Everything de-sanded and picked up :)
Heat index was 105 and we didn't break a sweat - windy and shade from the easy up was nice.
We will do this again

    If we aggies move to the SEC (like I think we might), we will have to start spending some quality time together as I head east for games. Great Looking cook and I am extremely jealous that you had a summer afternoon on a Texas beach without breaking a sweat.

    Looks great. Fish tomorrow?

    The foods looks great and how can you beat a day at the beach. I've never tried the stuffed tenderloin on the Egg, but your cook has inspired me. And the bacon wrap, well that's just over the top. Pork fat rules!

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.

  • We did a trial run with our son last week in his Bronco and just picked up a bucket of chicken. Windy is normal and it was real pleasant despite the temps last week so we decided to make a day of it this weekend - eggcelent decision and will do it often.
  • No fishing this trip - just chilled
  • Stuffed pork tenderloin is mightyfine. My guideline is:

    Always start with spinach
    Something sweet - Apples, Pears, Sweet potato, grapes, raisins, preserves, etc.
    Something crunchy - almonds, pecans, walnuts, cashews, or pine nuts
    Cheese - Whatever is in the fridge :)
    Occasionally wrap with bacon

    Have done several variations - Second time doing this variation - I like it

    My traveling companion wants to try apple pie filling next time - sounds like a plan to me with cheddar cheese :)

    Now that is a nice day indeed and some great looking food.

  • Thanks GG - Long day and everything cleaned and picked up.

    Lesson learned - start a little earlier and stop a little earlier.

    Putting it in the rack after a couple Crowns to help lubricate the joints B)

    Great post Frank I enjoyed reading it. I also like your tenderloin cook.

    I have a chunk of loin in a low salt overnight brine I'm going to egg later today. I plan to butterfly it and roll it up in whatever we have.

    Have a great day. Tim ;)

    Frank you rock!!!!! What a great idea..looks like you really enjoyed the day,just look at María.. :laugh: was it in Mustang Island? sure you can't get anything near that nice food around there....BTW how did you lift the small?? :ohmy:
  • RipnemRipnem Posts: 5,511

    Your such a stud! B)

    good looking grub,

    that's a perfect beaching going gear and ride, quick to load and set up..... t ACGP, Inc.
  • you're blaming this on decaf?????
  • Beli - the small is not too bad to move. Certainly easier to move with the guts out, but I move it all the time with fire ring and fire box inside.

    We were on North Padre Island beach - South of Corpus and just a short ride for us. Seventy miles of beach that is a Federal park. Twenty dollars gets a 1 year pass - open 24 hours a day. First five miles is easy cruisin - after that 4-wheel drive only. Lots of folks out there yesterday but not crowded at all - vehicles spaced at around 500' up and down the beach with plenty grills going and kids having a blast.
  • Thanks Webecca - the wibs were nice B)
  • Frank, that is just awesome. It looks like a wonderful day. Your pork is outstanding.

    It's great that you can drive right up and unload your stuff and not have to carry it anywhere. There aren't any beaches that allow cars over on this coast, so we can't do that here. LUCKY you!

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    Must go together next time we are there, TKS for sharing.
  • That's an all star outing in all respects! Scott

    Yes, vbi :whistle: ;) :laugh:
