Sacrifice help: Brussle sprouts

edited 2:34AM in EggHead Forum
OK gang got lots of stuff burning and only 1 medium egg to do it on. (Bean you could help by donating your small to the cause! ;) ) Anyone got a recipe for brussle's that will cook at about 300ish indirect? Full Sacrifice thread latter. Look who's in the "Shack"!! With 20 mph winds sketters with West Nile no worry!! :P

    Sounds kinda bizarre...and now your talking "alter".....just my opinion...but it don't sit well with me....which explains my lack of replies to those type of posts.....absolutely not trying to start a war over this..merely speaking my mind....Post on..
  • EggtuckyEggtucky Posts: 2,746 just replied Wess :whistle: ;)
  • Are you starting trouble AGAIN WessB? You been tipping the jug again too?
    If you don't have something nice to say why say anything at all?
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    As I was just my opinion...not starting trouble at all...and "What" exactly in your reply was "something nice to say" ?
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    ????? Don't understand what you are trying to say...

    Look folks. I'm not trying to be sacrireligous AT ALL! I'm not an angle by any means but am a Christian and go to church when not working shiftwork. When I tell someone on this form like the lady who's husbond had cancer I'll pray for them I mean it. Not just lip service. Only God knows whats in someone's heart and he knows mine. If I offended some one I'm sorry but NOTHING AGAINST THE ALL MIGHTEY WAS MENT!! He knows and hope you do!

  • JLOCKHART29JLOCKHART29 Posts: 5,897
    I'll figure out the brussle sprouts. :(
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    No offense taken...just echoing my original comes acrross a little bizarre, and also repeating..that it was just MY opinion..this is as you see fit..Your posts are typically very good...I just find the "sacrifice" thing a little odd...for the last time...Just my opinion..and no offense taken or intended...
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    Absolutely had no intentions of dragging your post away from getting a reply to help you with your original request....personally don't eat brussel I can't offer any help with cooking them..
  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
    call me nutty, but i'm guessing all you mean is a little exaggerated reference to "sacrificing something on the alter of the BGE", right? ...a reference to the whole "cultish" aspect.

    hmmm. i don't see why 1. ) it's hard to understand or 2.) doesn't sit well

  • JL always look forward to your post! Hope the replies don't slow you down.

    not unlike the commediens who say "when my wife cooks it is like a burnt offering
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    hmmm... I thought it was a PETA reference.

    Brussle sprout, I wouldn't dare, they might brake the egg.

  • Celtic WolfCeltic Wolf Posts: 9,773
    ALTAR is for sacrificing, or praying. As in "The priest prayed on the altar during Easter Mass."

    ALTER means to change. transform. As in "Wess altered stike's head when he stuck him with a Crown Bottle."

    Jlockhart cut those babies in half, coat them generously with EVOO and Dizzy Pig's Shaking the trees and roast at 300 till tender. They will alter your appreciation for Brussel Sprouts
  • Celtic WolfCeltic Wolf Posts: 9,773
    BREAK!! :woohoo:

    only a vacuum will put the brakes to the egg.. and a lack of Lump.. :silly:
  • EggtuckyEggtucky Posts: 2,746
    You said in your original repy that you dont reply to those kind of posts...jus making light of the fact that you just had ;)
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    And I have not responded for the last couple of months to the "Sacrifice" posts that have been posted....and really have no idea what compelled me to say anything tonight...but as usual, I'm sure I'll end up the bad guy for whatever reason for speaking my mind....Honestly don't believe I am the only one that thinks it's a little weird....let's not let this blow up into something it needs not be...
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    LOL & brussle sprouts.

    maybe I should try some, might suprise me.

  • Celtic WolfCeltic Wolf Posts: 9,773
    Well I figures J was being picked on enough without telling him he spelled Brussel wrong. :whistle:
  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,671
    Cant help it but some of my cooks become sacrifices & some of my sacrifices become great cooks. Aint no bad guys around here. Now Leroy's fingers,,,thats a sacrifice.

  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Thought it looked a little odd so I just copied. Maybe I will try some burssel's too.

  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    BTW, I was reading on of your earlier posts. Don't you have several XL's?

  • Celtic WolfCeltic Wolf Posts: 9,773

  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,671
    But this is his secret to great cooks.

  • stikestike Posts: 15,597

    though i hope you really aren't saying it's open season on spelling errors. you've been known make a few, yourself,actually. i thought we let things slide here, since this is a BBQ forum, and not the Chicago Manual of Style's forum.

    From: Greg Walker
    Subject: Brussels Sprouts & Shallots

    Just for Sir mouse and a few of his close friends ;)

    50 ml olive oil 4 tbsp
    15 ml butter 1 tbsp
    12 large shallots, peeled 12
    2 garlic bulbs, peeled 2
    1.3 kg Brussels sprouts, trimmed 2 1/2 lb
    250 ml red wine 1 cup
    250 ml chicken stock 1 cup

    In a heavy casserole with a tight lid, heat oil and butter over medium high
    Add shallots and garlic, sauté until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
    Add Brussels sprouts, toss to coat with oil and cook about 5 minutes.
    Deglaze pan with red wine.
    Cook 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Add chicken stock, stir well and bring to a boil over high heat.

    Now You're Cooking! v5.83 [Meal-Master Export Format]

    Title: Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Pancetta
    Categories: side dish, vegetables
    Yield: 1

    2 lbs brussels sprouts
    1 tb vegetable oil
    8 ozs pancetta; cut crosswise=20
    -into 1/4 i
    salt and pepper

    1. Using a sharp knife or mandoline (see notes), thinly slice brussels
    sprouts crosswise, discarding the root ends. The resulting "shaved"
    sprouts should resemble confetti.

    2. Pour vegetable oil into a large pot over high heat; add pancetta and
    stir until slightly crisp, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium high,
    add brussels sprouts, and cook, stirring often, until sprouts are bright
    green and tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve

    Makes 8 - 10 servings

    Notes: A mandoline works well for "shaving" the brussels sprouts. Use
    a fork stuck in the core end of the sprout to keep your fingers away
    from the blade.

    Brussels sprouts are not my favorite vegetable, but I can eat them. At
    Christmas time I had this recipe at a friend's home and enjoyed it.
    Given that there are a few other b sprouts eaters, I thought I would
    share. This recipe came from the Dec 2006 Sunset magazine.
