I've been posting pictures from the flurry of cooks I did with my new Big Green Egg. This round comes with a story. My friend and his wife come over to our house often for meals made on my gas grill or smoker. When he heard I'd gotten this new grill called the Big Green Egg he asked if he could come over and see my new grill. When he arrived he brought a tan "Egghead" baseball cap for me. This was more than I expected, but his next trick was totally unexpected. He asked me if I had a Dutch Oven for my BGE. I told him I could use one of my Le Cruset DO's. He said no did I have a BGE Dutch Oven? He went back to his car and came back with the BGE Dutch Oven. I was floored. What follows are some of the items I made on my new BGE Dutch Oven. I will put links to the picture posts on my website for these items if anyone is interested in seeing or reading more. Oh and by the way, I've made a point of having my friend and his wife over to enjoy some of the things I've made on my new Dutch Oven.

BTW & FWIW I have had not one, but two flashbacks and both time it was doing these dishes in the Dutch Oven. The temperature wasn't particularly high but the same thing happened both times so I will share. Some steps of these cook have you adding lots of ingredients or stirring lots of ingredients. This means the lid was open for long periods of time. This meant lots of coals got ignited while this was happening. When I closed the lid for 15 or 30 minutes or so I had to shut the top cap and lower draft door way way down. This starved the fire of oxygen and I got flashbacks the next time I opened the lid even though the temps weren't real high. I burned the hair off my left arm one week and my right arm the next. I feel pretty stupid, but it WILL NOT EVER EVER happen again.
