  • I like the grilling power of the MINI

    Chops

    The very first Pork butt I did on a ceramic grill was the MINI. Direct at 350 dome for a few hours and it convinced me to get the XL.

    Red Eye Express seasoning is right on target. The mini did a great job with indirect setup at 350 degrees dome. Life is good with my mini egg.

    I love my mini. You'll use it if you like to sear things. It is quick to heat and works great for simple dinners and involved cooks. It does a great job on sausages, chicken breasts/thighs, fish....but searing steaks and chops is where it really shines.

    Got mine at Christmas and use it constantly. Usually just cooking for me, but it's great for cooking for 2 as well.

    Thanks JoJo.

    I use a Nikon D40x. I believe those were taken with the standard 18-55mm lens - they are all older photos (I think those steaks were one of the first cooks on my mini).

  • I only have one pic of a mini cook, it was my second which was about a 4 lb sirloin roast. The foil on the roast is where it would touch the dome.
    IMG_1423.jpg

    I've also cooked a few 3.5 lb chickens, swordfish, steaks, drumsticks, steak tips- lots of stuff. I am still learning as I find the mini is more challenging when you are putting a lot of meat in it. When the meat covers most of the grill area it blocks the draft somewhat so under those circumstances temp control can get tricky.

    I don't cook as well on it as a lot of the other posters, but I recommend making yourself a raised grid. I bought an extra grid when I got my mini and made a raised grid out of it and I use it for most cooks. For indirect I'll fold up a piece of aluminum foil and stick it on the lower grill - works great!

    These are great pics! Is the Mini ideal for only cooks above 300F or can you do one slab of ribs at 250F over a course of 4-5 hours?
