A couple T-bones on the new small

Finally got the new small lumped and loaded and figured I would break it in with a couple of T-bones and some shrimps.

Certainly a different feel than my large, but I am sure I will get accustomed to it after a few tries.


No Trex this evening, just hot, fast, and turned 45 degrees after 90 seconds


Turned out quite nice.  Got my hands on some truffle butter (a first for me) and slathered a little on.  Quite an interesting flavor.

T-bones turned out fantastic, shrimps were on point as well!

Now what to make for dinner tonight and over the weekend?  -Perhaps time to attempt my first tri- tip

    Dang, very nice maiden voyage.

    Proud small owner here as well.  Can easily do the same tasks as a large, slightly smaller scale.

    They are a portable workhorse.

  • Amazing! I'm sold on the small been back and forth for awhile know and your post pushed me over the edge. I'm able to move the 75 lbs and feel like I'll want a little more space.

    Great way to break in a small egg! I have the small / large combo as well and love them both! Tri-tips are awesome, we don't always find them around here but when we do I usually buy a couple.
