This was the question my wife asked me this morning. This is a first! She's enjoying the egg almost as much as I am. So I have done the butt, spatchcock, chicken legs, brisket, pizza etc. looking to do something different. Suggestions?

    Blackened fish, grilled vegetables, paella.

    My weekend cooks (starting tonight) will be hamburgers, spatchcock chicken and baby backs.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I am doing doceggertons legs tonight/tomorrow. 

    You can try grilled shrimp with grilled asparagus and red potatoes. I made this last week and my fiance was impressed that I cooked everything on the egg. She now likes grilled asparagus.

    I finally scratched this one of the list for fathers day:

    On some Publix french hamburger buns with some horseradish sauce.  It was yummy.  




    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    I don't see ribs on your list of traditional Q. How about green lightning shrimp? ABTs? Turtle Eggs?

    I have shrimp in the freezer. That's a good one. How'd you cook it @GATABITES ? My wife doesn't like asparagus. Maybe this will change her mind ?

    Did the ribs a couple of times they are amazing. I would be more than happy doing them every weekend. @SmokeyPit I did a chuck roast last week but I absolutely ruined it. Dog food. ( he eats all the failures and he's ok with that) ill have to try the pepper stout. That's definitely near the top of the list to try again.

    I'm planning on trying the brisket burgers that were done HERE but using the Unami burger recipe that was described by @hokie_smoker HERE . I haven't done burgers yet on the egg and am anxious to try.

    Other options if I'm truly ambitious are Jay's Shrimp Burgers for those who may not feel like a burger, and I might make AZRP's Crispy Chicken also....

    Picking up couple of steaks on the way home (not sure what cut, something marbled and thick). Planning on my first reverse sear, going to toss small potatoes and brussels sprouts with EVOO/S&P onto a CI skillet, then skewered shrimp dusted with whatever DP rub I have around during the searing.

    Maybe some butt. I'm fresh out of leftovers. I might sneak a steak in tomorrow while SWMBO is hosting a bridal shower for her sister.

    Whatever is a good buy at Costco. Reverse sear steaks will make the list and I am hoping to do some hot wings for the first time. Maybe some whiskey, maybe some rum, probably both. Haha! Have a good weekend!

    Shrimp:

    I found a shrimp marinade recipe online. I found one and tailored it with what i had in the spice rack. I used lemon pepper Ms. Dash for the lemon flavor and old bay and a few other items. There are a bunch shrimp marinade recipes online. Make it to your taste palate.  Marinate for about 30-45 mins in fridge. I used a plastic zip-lock  bag. I cooked the shrimp direct @ 400 for a few mins per side. 

    Asparigus:

    I made a sauce with butter, cracked pepper, big green egg whirly bird rub, and dried thyme. It smells so AMAZING! Clean and cut off the asparagus root(s). Place them in a bowl and pour the sauce over them and let it sit for about 15-20 mins. I put them on the grill and let them char. Man, they hold so much smoke flavor it unbelievable. 

    Red potatoes:
    To save time, I boiled the potatoes for about 20 min or so in salty water. I then took them off the stove and let them rest until the shrimp and asparagus are ready for the grill. I put a little butter in the bottom of a dish with a little pepper and dried thyme. I chopped the red potatoes into may .25 pieces and dip them in the butter on both sides. Place on the grill until golden brown. I had grill marks on the potatoes with made the meal looked fantastic. SWMBO loved the plated meal. I am sorry I didn't take pics, as it would have made my narration so much better!!!! 

    You will hook her with the asparagus. The heat neutralizes the earthy taste of the vegi....

    I'm going with blackened flounder fillets and grilled veggies, maybe corn on the cobb..

  • Ribeyes on Saturday with grilled corn on the cob. Sunday we're going to my Mom's & can't fit the eggs into the van with my MIL visiting. Well, if I strap her to the roof... If you're thinking I'm being mean, I say she asked for it when she decided to stay for Weeks.

    You could always stuff something in something and enter it in the throwdown!

    Steve said I couldn't stuff my pie hole and enter a pic of my fat stuffed belly. Now I don't know what to do.

    Baby backs were on sale, so that's what's cooking now.  Someone here on another thread suggested letting ribs reach room temperature before removing the silverskin, I tried that and it works like a charm, thanks!
    Also experienced my first flashback this morning.  I did burp the Egg, but I guess I lifted the lid just a bit too far; lost the hair on my hand but otherwise no harm.  Wear gloves, dummy!
