What is your favorite indirect cook off the mini?

My WONDERFUL wife bought me a mini for my birthday. Already I have seared steaks and cooked chicken. I was wondering what are your favorite things to cook indirect on the mini. I bought some pizza stones from amazon and I am trying to come up with different/new things to cook on it: casseroles, sides and what is your setup?

    If you have pizza stones, cook pizza! I've ordered the stones, too, and I'm looking forward to cooking small, flour-tortilla crusted pizza (two tortillas with a layer of 4 cheese Italian blend in between to meld them together).

    You could set up an indirect cook where you could do a small pork butt, slabs of ribs cut into sections so they would fit on the mini - heck - you could bake a cheese cake.

    I enjoy my mini, but I've pretty much limited my cooks to steaks, burgers and chicken pieces when I'm cooking just for me, or for myself and one of my daughters. Anything more and I use the small. I have yet to fire up my medium.

    Thanks, I guess to date everything I have cooked on my large and/or mini is meat, pizza, fried rice, grilled veggies and ABT's. I'm trying to come up with something else to cook. Might do some meat balls?

    Thanks again,

    Trip, I bake sweet potatoes all the time on the mini, I have the Kimwoo from the Ceramic grill store and the pizza stones from Amazon. I bake em at 300-350, raised grid on the pizza stone. When they get a little black on the bottom I roll it a little repeat until a little black on all sides. Takes about an hour or so.

    Haven't really played much with this yet. But I'm ready if I need it. A friend broke a small/med. pizza stone so I nabbed it before it hit the trash. I used JB weld and being that all the joints are in compression, I think it will stand the test of time.
