Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

grilled caesar pointers

I did a search and found lots of pictures of great looking grilled caesar salads but not much in the way of how to do it.  Thought I'd try it out.  Anything I should do other than throwing the romaine on a hot grill and hoping I don't cremate it?

    I don't cook my romaine.  Just the chicken.  I make my own dressing from scratch each time (has to be in an unfinished wooden bowl) then, when the chicken is done, cut it up to bite sized pieces and put on the salad.  Then add the croutons and Parmesan cheese.
    I went to www.foodnetwork.com and they say to grill the romaine leaves (not cut up) for 1-2 min per side.

    I throw them on the grill, cut side down, with nothing on them for a few minutes - flip them over, brush on dressing and parmesan and leave for a few more - lets the cheese melt - I just do it at whatever temperature I've cooked whatever else I'm cooking - don't need to leave them on too long - just long enough for the leaves to start wilting and some grill marks to appear

    Thanks, I'll give it a try tomorrow and let you know if I was successful.  Had a great cook tonight although I realize I must have screwed up on trying to post pictures of it.  However did manage to keep my reputation as world's greatest martini maker and seriously tore up a bottle of high end sipping rum that a client gifted me with.
