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! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

    The pic below shows the orientation of the bacon-wrapping - try to envision it with no tail and a piece of pineapple in the middle. 

    I told my son that we have to do it again soon and take step-by-step pics and he is on board with that so it will happen.  As many noted and have mentioned, he is the more mature and harder working member of our two man team.  Thanks again to those who have complimented me, my son, or the dish.  It was great to meet you as well.  We had a great time.

    Thanks Mickey.  To be honest, it is unlikely that we will make it next year.  This was the end of his spring break.  Next year for spring break he is going on a school trip to Japan.

    And he told me that if I go next year without him and take his mom and my SWMBO (same person, in case anyone is wondering) he will feel that I have cheated on him because she would fall in love with Salado on a different level (quaint shopping, etc) and the trip would take on a different meaning.  That's why he made me tell her that Salado is like Woodstock - just a big open field with not enough port-a-potties.  If anybody tells her anything different, I'll sick Fleurdelirious on you with her shiv.

    One quick question - pre-cooked or raw shrimp?

    Thanks - they sound great. Cannot wait for warmer weather to arrive to try these!
  • ScottborasjrScottborasjr Posts: 1,939
    Can't answer the pre-cooked or raw shrimp question but I can say that the raspberry chipolte sauce that was used in the cook is amazing.

    Raw shrimp. I actually get them frozen. They get cooked/ceviched in the lime juice and they will show that by turning orange like a cooked shrimp if you use fresh lime juice - although that is not a necessary component of it because they will also cook plenty on the grill.

    I wish I had another like him. Unfortunately my only other child is his older sister. Doesn't surprise me about Nola seeing double.

    I think you described it perfectly, sans the hot chicks raising their blouses....... oh wait!  I forgot about Fleurdelirious.  I think you described it perfectly.

    Here are pics of the prep process and of the finished product.  It gives you an idea of the size of the pineapple pieces and the length of the bacon, etc.  The finished pic also demonstrates how the bacon had fallen apart on a few of them.

    We've got 5 grills.  They are all his as much as they are mine. However, I can see an egg being the first housewarming gift I buy him some day...

    So far I have resisted buying a small egg for travel/camping because our ProQ smoker is so easily portable - especially if we take out a section.  It all latches together and I can just grab the handle on top and carry it with one hand.  And we have a 20" diameter cooking surface.  He wants a deep fryer as our next addition to the armamentarium.

    I plan on cooking this Sunday for lots of people. Since I couldn't find the raspberry chipotle sauce, I went with this witch looks delicious on its own. Should I still mix it 2/1 with regular bbq sauce? 

    Also, would brining the shrimps help? In the book breath of a wok, multiple recipes recommend shrimp and so does Griffin. (http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1147701/brined-and-grilled-shrimp/p1)

    Rothschild Farms also makes a Hot Pepper Raspberry Chipotle Sauce and a Cherry Pomergranate Habanero Sauce that are great.

    @Bjork, I'm not sure what to tell you about mixing with BBQ sauce.  I'd probably taste it and see if it provides the 3 components I'm looking for in my sauce on these: 1) tangy, 2) sweet/fruity, 3) peppery kick.  I stumbled on this by accident when I made some at a friend's house and forgot to bring sauce and all they had was HEB Peach Habanero BBQ sauce.  It was the best batch I've ever made and I've never been able to find it since.  So I've made up other options.  I have figured out that it's about individual taste - and my individual taste tells me that too much standard BBQ sauce overwhelms the other flavors.

    I have no experience brining shrimp so I can't speak to that.  I do think the lime flavor contributes though.

    Oh yeah, and special thanks for Tom from Ceramic Grill Store for providing a raised direct set-up after we had cooked the first couple of batches with plate setter.  By raising the grid the cooking was more even and consistent and there was a little more space in the profile his ceramic stone that allowed me to do a few more shrimp in each batch.

    Doing these tomorrow and have follow up question......you say raise direct above but mention the oval stone, did you mean raised indirect? The reference to the stone is confusing me....thanks in advance for advice

    Just did some, but kick them up a notch. Brined the shrimp in 1/4 cup EVOO, 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp granulated garlic 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper, covered an refrigderated for 1 hour. Used Dizzy Pig pineapple head on the pineapple and Raging River after wrapping with the bacon. Sauce was 2 parts Rothschild Farms Hot Pepper Raspberry Chipotle Sauce and 1 part Bone Sucking Sauce, unbelieveable!!! No pics because we ate them so fast.

    I'd precook the bacon some next time. By the time the bacon is done, the shrimp are overdone and tough. JMHO

    Yes, I should have said raised and INDIRECT.

    It looks like people are not only doing them justice - they are taking them to the next level.
    SmokinDAWG, I've wondered abou the relative cooking of the shrimp vs the bacon and I haven't really decided the best way to handle it.... meaning you are probably right. However, I doubt I'll change how I do it - probably because my palate doesn't seem to be sensitive enough to warrant it.

    I did them direct and it was less than ideal. People still enjoyed them but all the drippings made them taste smoky. I agree the shrimp were overcooked by the time the bacon was done. 

    Not a problem, I learned that when cooking bacon, go indirect!
