Man whad'a ride! :woohoo: (sorry about the poor pics)

A buddy and I put in an hour or so yesterday in search of the Great Morel mushroom. Find the right couple of dead elms and you won't believe how many of these things you'll find beneath. :ohmy:

So I cooked the tri-tip that should have gotten the heat last night and got to try the Cognac Sauce that many have tried and raved about. The recipe calls for Leeks but these particular fungus work well as an alternative. ;)

The sauce recipe

the raws


Meat in the spider if you've never seen that. (dome temp 400º) :whistle: it was pulled soon after the photo and the rig was set back to raised grid and the meat/spuds went back on to finish.


Plated :)


This sauce is soo worth the work and will happen again SOON! like saturday with a Porterhouse :woohoo:

    Oh, so jealous that you can go foraging. I don't think we have elms here.

    Can you part with the recipe for the sauce?

    Hideous little things aren't they! But the taste... ooohhh yummm. We have no elms here so when we go for morels we look for old burnt areas that are coming back to life. They seem to do well in the charcoal..... ;)

    That looks awesome! Did you by chance take a pic of the picking grounds before you got all of the mushrooms?

    I was in such a frenzy I didn't even think of it til it was too late.

    Firing up the small now to fry up a batch.

    A few years back I was walking up a creek looking on the bank for morels when I walked up on 84 in one place. :woohoo:

    No camera. :(

    I will never forget that day. They were everywhere I looked! I went prepared because I had some plastic grocery bags...when I went back the following year the property had sold and the new owner had a campground over the spot I found so many morels the year before. :(

    I'm going horseback riding this Sunday and hope to find some morels in the woods.
