Beer brats are on the menu so I need to keep sharp with this cook so it's practice, practice, practice. ;) :)
Been awhile since I smokes some ribs so...
Now that local sweet corn is finally in...
The mini has been workin with the little stuff, like these lambchops. On the other hand...I'd better stick with the beer brats to feed the masses. :lol:

    Hi Clay,

    The food looks fantastic. What I can't see well enough is how you have your grill set up. It appears as though you have your grid raised higher then the gasket almost like you have an extra fire ring. My old eyes have had a hard day and I was wondering if you could please explain to me how you are set up?

    Ummm, yum!

    Question. I see Urquell for imbibing. But are you using that for the brats also? And I notice a bit of onion in the pan. Does pilsner and onion add more tang? I've tried less hoppy ales and bocks, and those add a nice sweetness to the brats.
  • Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,429
    If you would like to make them, that's fine cause it takes some pressure off me. :blink: Your the hodag Iron Chef! :cheer:

    Your eyes are good, what you see are two firerings, one on top of the other. Makes a good raised grid and a gasket saver. Got them for all my eggs including the mini. The top one is inverted to fit the curvature of the dome better. Shrinks the grid area a bit, I'm ok with that. Had this setup for a couple of years now, maybe three.

    Looking forward to the fest and the food and people. For sure I'll cook pig candy and beer brats. When the starting gun goes off it'll be an egghead cookin frenzy.

    YUMMEE!!! B) That's borderline torture!Man it looks GREAT!!! :)
  • Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,429
    Butter and onion in the pan, saute a bit until the onion starts to clear then add beer then brats, cook for about 30 minutes. Then grill brats direct to brown up with grill marks. Return brats to beer "hot tub", reheat in egg at bit to keep them hot and juicy for serving. I had Urquell on hand so that's what got used. Had my neighbors over along with two nephews for lunch with us and all agreed that the Johnsonville mild Italians were some of the best beer brats they ever tasted. Of course it was all because of the egg. :whistle: Love those beer brats.

    Thanks,I hope so,... little nervous. Lot's of important people will be there so the pressure is on.
  • Come practice at NiEGGara Fest! You'll be the life of the party with cooks like that! :woohoo:
  • Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,429
    Thanks for the offer but reservations have been for one heck of an egghead party. :)
  • Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,429
    Thanks. I think I was the life of the party last year with my "Wet Martini's". :ohmy: :woohoo:
    Should be even more exciting second time around. ;)
  • Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,429
    Thanks Hoss, I plan on a big feed this year so we gotta be ready when the masses bust down the gate. You see our egg smoke will travel right over Chicago and how many people live in Chicago? Billions and they all love BBQ. :silly: :P

  • 32 days - I have a lot to do! I am really getting excited! We're working on a special Friday night Meet & Greet - details to follow - but I'll give a big clue - Bobby Q from the mothership might be teaching us a thing or two... I can't wait to see everyone. Plan on staying around for SPSpalooza (5 live bands) on Sunday.

    Thanks Clay, That looks like a handy set up. I may have to try that one of these days.


  • Lookin' goooooood, Clay. Can't wait. Make sure you route your trip back home through Elburn to pick up brats from the meat market there. Best brats around!

    32 days?! Oh man, I've got to practice. This weekend would have been perfect weather for it, but I was sick all weekend and didn't have the energy for wokking.

    We're getting close!
