on suday i thought it would be a good day to try out some new cooks. first i baked some wheat bread, and then i cooked some beef stew. i had the dutch oven for about a year now and just havent had time to try it out but with the colder weather here in northern MN i figured some stew sounded good. i did over cook the bread a little (first time) so was a little dry but it was still really good

  • Did you notice any difference between your stew on the egg, verses a burner on the stove?

    I want to do chili on the egg, but instead of cooking in a dutch oven, i might just fire roast the peppers, tomato, and onion and then cook the meat on the egg.  Then simmer on the stove.

  • i did tell the difference i used some cherry wood chips and did a handfull of them about 3 times thought out the cook to get a good smoke going and i could tast the smoke and i asked my wife and she said she could too not a big taste but enough to tast it

     

    i will deffenetly be doing it again and was very easy just kept the dome temps about 350 and got a good simmer going and stayed that way though the entire cook

     

  • That looks tasty!  The food don't look bad either!  I like your DO.  What kind is it?

  • I got the DO from my local egg place so i am sure it is BGE brand or something there was no writing on it or anything so not 100% sure. i know it took me a long time to use it being i had to season it and what not but now i am wondering why i waited so long
