It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

SWMBO BDAY DINNER (FILETS)

I haven't posted in a while any cooks due to being at the lake and a lot of travel as well for work. This weekend is the wife's BDAY and we are heading to the Hill Country (Texas for non Texans). I told the wife lets have a great dinner here before we head out in the morning and she agreed. I wanted Filets and Lobster but after the big lunch I consumed we just stuck with filets, baked potatoes, and brussels sprouts.

Got the egg stabilized at 300 Indirect for my potatoes and let them go for about 50 min or so and then threw on my Filets (Salt, Pepper, and Thyme). Did the Filets till they hit 105 and pulled them and let them rest for about 10MIN while I got the temp up to around 550. Threw them on for about 1.5Min per side to get a nice char.

Wife was on cloud nine after that steak, It was my first time trying it this way and it wont be my last. Also had a 2007 Bottle of Nickel & Nickel Chardonnay, and yes I did a white wine with a steak. It was damn hot out and a red wine outside when its 90 Plus out is not a refreshing drink for me.

Now a glass of Oban and a Fuente I am set for the trip tomorrow.
