Been a lurker for a few days, reading recipes and looking for table plans thinking that someday I would get into the Green Egg thing. I've been a pretty proficient Weber Performer for quite a while and still love my Weber, but to smoke stuff I had an old 9000 pounds cast iron smoker with fire box on small wheels. It worked great but was such a pain to get going and didn't hold the heat very well that it was only used 2-3 times a year. So just by accident, the wife says "Let's go in here (BBQ Galore, Bee Caves) and get one of those floor mats for your Weber". So, after 20 minutes, I bought a Lg Egg, brought it home and put it together. Didn't get through until late so I decided to do a Prime Choice 2" ribeye as my first meal.
Pretty much followed Trex's instructions, got it up to 750, seared'em for 2 min each side, let sit for 20 min, finished off at 400 for 6 min a side. Threw on some sausages during finish off. I can honestly say....YOU GOT ME, BEST DURN STEAK EVER!!!!!. So now I gotta get busy on building a table. At first I thought it would be a little longer so I could disassemble the Weber and install it in the table at one end with Egg on other end. But the more I think about it, I'll probably just sell the Weber.
Here's a pic of how it all turned out. Ribeye done to perfection, a few slices of jalapeno kelbasse sausage, kale sauteed with garlic and roasted brussel sprouts.
And yes, my eyes were bigger than my stomach, no way I could finish that plate of food.
Thanks for all your help!!
