  • Re: Made in the USA?

    Who cares where they parts are made or where the final assembly takes place? In the grand scheme of things does it really matter?

    "Made in the U.S.A." stopped being a meaningful phrase many moons ago.

    Look at your car, your television, your computer, your cellphone, etc., etc., etc. How many are made in the USA? So why would the country of manufacture matter on a BBQ device?
  • Re: Trouble with Guru Adaptor Door on the Large Egg

    Why not just slide the screen out when you're using the guru adapter, then put the screen back in when you're not? No reason for the screen to remain in there when using the guru.

    It should just easily slide out to the right, then you can just thread it back into the grooves when you need it.
  • Honey Lemon Shrimp

    Ingredients1.5 pounds 16-20 ct. raw shrimp
    3 Tbsp Honey
    3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
    1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp kosher salt
    a few grinds black pepper
    2 tsp Dizzy Pig Shakin' The Trees or other favorite rubInstructionsPeel and de-vein the shrimp and blot dry.

    Whisk together all remaining ingredients. Marinate the shrimp in 2/3 of the marinade for about 30 minutes while the BGE comes up to 350*. Reserve about 1/3 of the marinade for brushing the shrimp as they finish.

    Grill the shrimp direct at 350-375* on raised grid (skewers optional). Lightly dust with additional Shakin' The Trees or other rub on each side as they cook if desired.

    Cook approximately 3-4 minutes per side or until they curl up. The honey will caramelize a little and give a nice sweet crunch that is offset by the tang of the lemon juice and dijon mustard.

    As the shrimp finish, brush or drizzle them with the reserved marinade mixture.NotesNumber of Servings: 2-3Time to Prepare: 20 minutes
  • Jalapeno Creamed Corn

    Ingredients6 ears fresh white or yellow sweet corn
    2 jalapenos
    1/3 c heavy cream
    2 Tbsp butter
    Slat and pepper to tasteInstructionsFire roast the jalapenos until the skins are charred. Enclose in a paper bag for 30 minutes, then peel off the skin. Cut the corn from the ears. Dice the fire roasted jalapenos and mix with the corn.

    Add butter to a heavy cast iron pan direct on the BGE at 350*. Cook the corn and jalapenos in the butter for a few minutes, then add the cream and cook until corn is tender and cream is reduced. Salt and pepper to taste.NotesThis was inspired by a side dish at Kevin Rathbun Steak in Atlanta.Number of Servings: 3-4Time to Prepare:
