Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Surf and Turf for my wife on Mothers Day

Technically we did this a day early but that's because we are joining the masses and going out for dinner tonight.  Our local "Whole Foods" type of place called Earth Fare had a sale on grass fed Filet Mignon and a Lobster Tail for 9.99 and my wife and I jumped right on that as we did for valentines day as well.  The steak is amazing and although she doesn't like Lobster I certainly do and more for me :)

I cut the tail in half and basted with butter and a little garlic and threw them on flesh side first for about 5 minutes (they were still somewhat frozen). I then flipped them over and basted with some more butter/garlic mixture and threw the filets on as well.   Didn't do a high temp cook with the steaks it was already 8PM and we were at baseball fields all day we were starving.

Took off the filet and let it rest after giving it the poke test for a good medium rare

I can't say enough about this beef.  Grass fed, you could cut it with a butter knife and the lobster was so good as well!

Oh yeah and I made the kids (the reason for our Mothers Day) a Mushroom and Swiss burger and 2 of them had cheddar burgers

Sorry for the lack of details.  I'm beat from yesterday and I had 4 hours of sleep and back to the grind today for the kids!   

Have a great Mothers Day everyone!
