ABTs, Twice Baked Potatoes and a Steak

Busy weekend at the house with me working all weekend. But we did manage to fire up the Egg and get a bunch of grilling done. Quite a bunch, so I'll just show Friday night's dinner here.

Started off with some ABT's stuffed with Mexican chorizo.

They went on and were later joined by some taters.

Once the taters cooked at 400F for about an hour, they were removed, allowed to cool and Mrs. G stuffed them and they went back onto the Egg

Done

After the taters were done, we cranked the Egg up to 650 and dropped on a 16 oz ribeye that had been rubbed down with DP Cow Lick

Coupla minutes per side

Mrs. G and I split the ribeye and still didn't finish it. Was quite a tasty meal. Really liked how the twice baked taters turned out, as well as the ABTs, but the steak really stole the show.

    Its the Mexican chorizo, so it's raw. Generally you have to split the casing (or open the package if it isn't in a casing) and cook it up in a skillet. I looked into making my own chorizo once....but that's as far as it got.

    When potatoes went back on with cheese, that just long enough to melt cheese and warm?

    Yep, you got it.

    And thanks for all the kind words, Guys. I recommend trying these. I'm sure they are not "healthy" with all the butter and cheese and stuff, but every once in awhile ya gotta say screw it and live a lil.
