Inaugural Mini Cook

This thing is awesome. I was amazed at how fast it got up to nuclear temps with just firestarters (5 minutes). I decided to go with 2 prime Ribeye steaks.




  • Those look fantastic.  Makes my mouth water.  I'm going to buy a ribeye for dinner since my wife won't be home.  You just cost me $10.

    Dayum!  Do you ever do anything other than prime??  

    Is this you??

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

    Love the virgin minis. But the ones being used are just as nice.

    I snagged the steaks at Costco over the weekend.
  • I get a lot of meat there, how we're they?

    Fantastic. I love Costco's meat and the fact that they have Prime is icing on the cake. The New York Strips were insanely marbled but I was on a Ribeye hunt. Next time...
  • I enjoy watching you guys and the mini. Meat looks good too
