It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    Thank You Double Egger.  As Cen-Tex said today was a beautiful crystal clear blue sky day.  Storm went thru last night more rain and some high winds, although on top of the hill winds are always pretty good.  I have not had to worry about using the large for almost three weeks...It is too wet for a spark to start a fire.    Hope this next round falls above the lakes.  Most of the saturating rains have been below the Highland lakes watershed.

    Since I am the Swmbo, and he likes to eat, he has never said anything about any cooking item that i have brought home.  BTW the first gift he gave me after he returned from vietnam was an 18x20 maple cutting board.   That board today is as good as it was the day I received it. 
  • last nites ribeye

    I watched an episode of ATK on PBS and they talked about salting a steak and then cooking.  I have been doing that for a long time but I always used course Kosher salt, ATK used fine grind Kosher salt and measured out the amount. 

    My first try with this method.  1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt to each side of a 11/2inch (+/-) choice ribeye from Costco.  I did this in the morning put the fridge until the evening.  This is almost a perfect cut.. the deckle (spinals dorsi), my favorite part, half circles the eye

    When I pulled out of the fridge there was on evidence of any salt, nothing to wipe off. I elected not to pat is dry, just put on the mini at close to 400 and fished with fresh ground pepper.

       Sorry not plated pics
    The left over

    This was the juiciest and most tender steak cooked to date.  I will be using this salting method again.
