Whats your most anticipated cook

I saw Centex's pork chops last week - did those on Sunday they were fantastic.

Just was the Turkey Breast - its now on my list for my next new things.

Other new adventures:

I want to do baked beans underneath a brisket or pork butt

Cast Iron - I love anything cooked with cast iron - I want to do a flat iron on cast iron.

I am trying to keep track of things that I see here and want to try.   The ideas show up faster than I have time to cook them.

What's your new directions?

    I've tried most of my "goal" recipes already; but, like Richard, I've not yet done a Paella and I LOVE paella!  
    The sad thing is I live alone, and rarely (okay, never anymore) entertain.  Paella is one of those dishes, like jambalaya, that you can't seem to make in a small amount for one person nor store and eat over several days, like chili or brisket.  
    So, if anyone wants to invite me over for their paella cook, I'll bring the wine!  
    :D

    Oh, and Richard, my favorite local restaurant Zucca's has been including both Peppadew peppers, and a jelly made from them, in a lot of their dishes; yum!

  • Going to "practice" doing an old fashion turkey this Friday - not spatchcock.
    Raised indirect, brined overnight.
    Also going to bake a cake in a couple weeks - I have never baked in my life, but we have a rum fruit cake that is a national dish in Trinidad, so looking forward to doing that on the Egg :)
  • EggcelsiorEggcelsior Posts: 9,746
    Trini, brine 24-36 hours and then leave uncovered in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
  • YEMTreyYEMTrey Posts: 1,655
    On my short list of cooks, and these are not incredibly difficult, just haven't gotten around to trying it on the Egg yet:

    Chili
    Braised Beef Ribs
    Turkey
    Meatloaf

    and I'm sure there are a few more that I can't think of right now.

    Turkey is wonderful on the egg with or without smoke wood.

    I have yet to do a whole packer and I want to do a mojo injected pork shoulder. 225 with no smoke wood. And then burnish the skin at 600.
  • Trini, brine 24-36 hours and then leave uncovered in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

    Ugh! I don't get the bird till Thursday, I will see if I can get Wednesday instead.
    Thanks Egg.

    That's funny...I was just thinking of doing some baked beans under a brisket the next time I cook one! 

    I have some pork tenderloins in the freezer that I am looking forward to cooking with some kind of sweet glaze. Also have some turkey legs I wanna try my hand at.

    About cast iron...I recently got some and have used them a whole lot since. They come in really handy on the BGE.

    My most anticipated is my next one. A chance to learn something new or improve on a go to. I am wanting to do a suckling pig.

    Ok - yes.  Suckling Pig needs to be on my list.

    That is such a party cook.   I can imagine opening up the egg with a Pig on the grill.  With the little ear foils and the footsies on.

    That has to be the most motivating post of the week or month.

    So, where do you buy a suckling pig?   Is that a Kroger or Safeway item?

    We get them 40-50lbs special order from Publix here in Fl.. Takes about a week to deliver to store.

    @NibbleMeThis Buffalo chicken burgers from last week are high on my to-do list.

    Want to try a rack of lamb or cabrito soon.

    Need serious work on paella. Tried it once and didn't do so well.

    And suckling pig has been added to the list.

    Once a year I do goose. At present, there is only one place in town that carries it, and the price is really high. Cheaper to pay for shipment from the Schiltz farm in SD. Don't do it often enough to say I've had one turn out spectacular, but I look forward to each time, and I'm getting better.

    I pastrami a corned beef brisket a few times a year. Getting more tender and flavorful each time.

    I have a friend who usually does not eat meat. But he has family members that raise goats, and he makes an exception  when they offer cabrito on the holidays. He says the goat needs to be quite young in order to avoid the very strong flavor older animals have.

    There are a few places in town that sell goat, and I've tried making Jamaican curried goat several times. I thought the results were passable, but my wife has declared that if I make it again, she had better be out of town.

    I grew up in South Dakota, and we had goose often.  I haven't had it in decades now, priced it a couple years ago and, oof-dah!  I'll have to track down the Schiltz farm.

    I had some green curry goat on a beach in Jamaica nd it was the bomb. Would love to be able to make that.

    If you look through my posts you can tell I like trying new and different things. Paella is high on the list and probably wins for presentation. 

    I am really enjoying using the wok on the egg Szechuan Peppered Calamari & Kung Pao Chicken was a great meal. 

    Red Velvet Creme Brûlée was a great dessert that i did for my Valentines Cook

    Using new techniques like Adam Perry Lang's herb brush and board dressing I did in Rib roast done like a steak was awesome. 

    Tacos al pastor has been one of my most creative cooks, I need to do it again and tweak it to be even better. 

    Of course getting a second level like a CGW Two-tier swing rack and loading it up with appetizers is always a crowd pleaser! Stir-fry, Turkey Day and Bedlam Game.... Long time no post.

    @Botch I haven't heard anyone else say uff da! on here, I like it! Here is the hotplate in my outdoor kitchen / pergola

    I'm interested in doing a goose cook this weekend as a trial run for the holidays.  How do you cook it, gdenby?
