Seafood; Oysters, Clams, Tiger Prawns, and Artichokes

2nd cook. My mother in-law came home with a feast, so I fired up the XL.I did not put lobster in the title because she had them steamed (facepalm). 350 direct, BGE lump with a few chunks of mesquite. Added the clams first in a CI pot with garlic, onions, butter, and white wine, bout 15min w lid on. Atrichokes face down 10 min, then flipped. Added my prawns, back split on skewers, and oysters. Had a light buld and split my lobster and threw them on the last 5 minutes to give them some fire. Results : delicious, but my oysters were dry, didn't have enough fat or brine to keep them from drying out.

    Looks great.   The oysters need only a few minutes.  Sounds like the basis for a great paella.

    Will not let me edit out the dupe??
  • @ Richard FL yeah lesson learned.

    @Td66snrf, I spent about 4 years lurking and the wife surprised me for my 31st; best gift ever. I can truly say the amount of knowledge and insight I have gained from this forum made the transition from gasser to this smoother. Still a learning curve but I am 100% forum taught, never been to an Eggfest, local store demo's, or even had food from an Egg before my first cook.

    Looks great. I wish we had better seafood here, I kiss the great readily available seafood in Louisiana.

  • It all looks great! We love the grilled artichokes here but don't always have good ones at the store.

    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.

  • @td66snrf she is an awesome ML, what should I try for my first low and slow. Wanna do it on Thursday, my day off. Want it to be a huge piece of meat and I wanna get up early for some reason, hahah.

    @CPARKTX @TexanOfTheNorth Pretty lucky living in So-Cal for food; avocados, chokes, and fresh seafood all year round. We have our problems, primarily political, but food we have got it made.
  • Did  some burgers last night, no need for a new thread, they were delicious but my times got away from me. The ML likes em well done and I like medium-rare, everybody loved em but I wanted mine more pink. Went direct bout 500, 3 minutes a side and went until mine hit 140ish, but I stepped away to grab a beer, at 135, and shot to 145. Doohh.
    Burgers 2lbs 80/20, 1 Tblsp Fish Sauce, 1 Tsp, 1 tblsp black pepper, 3 cloves garlic,1 egg, 3/4 C bread crumbs.
