Did some steak and frites for dinner tonight.  Thanks @Skiddymarker and @radamo for the tip on double frying the fries.  Worked out great.  Flat Iron steak, rubbed with Texas Roadhouse rub, indirect at 320 until 100 IT, then let rest.  Meanwhile, did the first fry of the fries, at 325 for about 6 minutes, until getting translucent, then drained and let cool.  Raised the Egg up to 425 for the garlic cheese biscuits, and reverse seared the steak for about 90 seconds a side, on the CI Hibachi.  Steak came off and rested, while the fries went back in to 375 degree oil for about 3 minutes.  Nice and crispy without being over cooked.

    The pan is foil - get them at the grocery store, with all the foil pans.  They are great used over another pan for doing bacon on the Egg.

    I did some experimenting with making fries on the egg itself, I think a smoke flavor on potatoes would be good.  Never could come up with something that was both easy and tasty.
    Maybe next year.

    Yep, it's a Lodge. Repurposed the gasser to bring it up to cooking height.

    Nice looking cook.  Glad the fries came out well.

  • If you know in advance you're having fries, you can cook them just until they brown, not too hard, then let them cool and bag them in the fridge overnight.  They will be very crispy on the second fry.  Of course works for left overs too.

    Oil temp is important, more important than I realized for 40 years of cooking.  Did not realize it until I got a Thermapen so I actually know the temp.  All those years I had been cooking them too cool I believe.

    Great idea on using the thermapen for checking the oil temp. I fry  a lot of things one of these and never trusted the dial. Will be using my thremapen from now on. image

    At work we blanch out fries at 360 and put themminnthe fridge to cool overnight not covered. This gives the starch a chance to dry out and create a thin "crust". Then fry them at 370. Best chips ever. We also only use kennebec potatoes.
