I spent some time this evening using my large BGE to cook up a variety of things for this weekend...

I started off by fire-roasting some eggplants for an eggplant appetizer my wife is making for a party this weekend. I cooked these direct at 450 dome, and turned them every 4 minutes to blacken the skin on all four sides.

Then I switched over to an indirect setup to cook a nectarine pie that my wife made. I cooked it at 400 degrees dome for about half an hour. I put the pizza stone in under it to warm the stone up for my next cook.

My helper got bored at this point and contemplated her toes.

After I took the pie out, I cooked a loaf of honey wheat bread on the pizza stone that I had been warming up. I also cooked that at 400 degrees for about half an hour.

Once the bread was done, I switched back to a direct setup and cooked up some fresh swordfish steaks for dinner that had been marinating in some sesame oil, cilantro, habaneros and fish sauce. I cooked them for 4 minutes per side at 550 degrees.

The swordfish steaks were plated and topped with a sauce containing vinegar, sugar, habaneros, chopped cilantro, and salt. This dish was fantastic.

    Everything looks great! And your helper is a real cutie.
  • Thanks! She's kind of reddish blonde at this point. Still just 5 months old, so we'll see how it turns out.

  • They really were good. My wife found fresh ones at the market she went to today. So much better than previously frozen. The recipe should be up on our site in the next couple of weeks. I'll post it here once we get a chance to write it up.
