Marinated some lamb loin chops overnight, gave them a coat of DP Red Eye Express rub and then put them on the Mini for a roast.

Pulled them off when their IT hit 110-115 and removed the Mini Woo & drip pan to prepare for a quick sear. CI grid was already on so it took just a couple minutes for the Mini to jump up to almost 600. Gave the chops a sear of about 1 min per side.

Pulled them off with ITs in the upper 120s to low 130s & let them rest a few minutes.

Love the flavor of the Red Eye Express rub on lamb. It was a tasty lunch.

Dinner was Stir-Fried Beef & Tofu, a recipe from the Breath of a Wok cookbook, and could probably be considered OT as admittedly I didn't cook it on an Egg. I used my Tao wok cooker with my 20" wok. I thought maybe I could double the recipe (sized for a 14" wok) in the 20" wok but found the area for the coals in my Tao a little too small (less than 9" in diameter). I could definitely double the recipe in my XL Egg but it'd use more lump.

    I'd cooked up 2 lbs of flank for that stir fry. You would have been welcome!

    The lamb chops look fantastic! We usually get them when they are on special at Costco... I'll need to be keeping an eye out for that.
    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 thought I was pretty lucky a week or so ago to have baby backs for lunch. Lamb at lunch is absolutely awesome! I will also have to say this is the first time I have ever looked at tofu and thought Damn that looks good!

    Man that lamb looks tasty!  Makes me want to get a Woo and a CI grid for my large so I can do some searing like that.
