    Question VI, should I order a 16" round or flat bottom from the wok shop? I already have a spider so I need to get this show on the road.

    I personally like the round bottom.  I think the spatula slides easier on it.  If you were to cook it on a stove or burner, I'd definitely recommend a flat bottom, but since you have a spider, I'd go with the round.

    Fun.  Pictures please !!!!

    And here is the recipe: 

    Fresh oysters on the half-shell. Grate fresh romano and crack black and white pepper on top. Place on hot direct grate. (6-700ish) for a few min untill the juice starts to simmer and the cheese on the shell edges  start to brown. Squeeze fresh lemon in each oyster and sprinkle fresh parsley. Option 2: same as before but, add panko bread crumbs and bacon bits prior to grilling. 

    Here is what they should look like.

    Um, Travis, did you cook your oysters on a brand new Egg?

    I do not like oysters, but I did try a cooked one and it was very tasty. It is still a texture thing for me. Husband and nephew, who do love oysters said they were very good.
    The amount of consumed raw vs cooked looked pretty even when I was over there.
    Travis it was a pleasure meeting you, your wife and your father.

  • Please share your specific method for grilling pineapple. Chunks or slabs? Direct or indirect? Sear at high temp or cook at medium temp? Time and temp? Thanks.

    Not sure about Travis' method, but we really like grilled pineapple on the Egg.  Normally, I just put it on my Firewire flexible skewers, at whatever temp I'm already cooking at, and flip a few times throughout the cook till I "feel" it's done. 

    This is the only pic I could find showing the Firewires, and it's mostly 'taters, w/ only a few pineapple chunks in there.

    P.S.  Travis - those oysters look AWESOME!!!!!   :-O  Makes me wanna get some more & do 'em Drago's style again!!!


    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

    I've only done it once but, it worked well. Cut in slices(rings) and soak in rum for a few min. Coat in Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head. Use high heat (400-600) on direct grate until they soften a little. I got turned onto this by Mickey. Thanks to him.

    This is on a ham and just like Travis said. Most of the time I lay them on the grill.
