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!

For example spatchcock chicken - very moist and tender the day its cooked. Put it in the fridge in a zip lock bag and the next day its cardboard. Hard and dry. I can put in a ton of mayo for chicken salad its edible to me but then why eat chicken to begin with - just scoop mayo and eat it.
Same for pork tenderloin. I cooked a bunch for the party a few weeks ago. I had leftovers. The next day they were very dry and not moist and tender like the day I cooked them.
Am I storing the meat wrong? Do you store the meat in some sort of liquid in a bag?
Veggies - we have a steamer pan that works good for carrots and brocolli. Sometimes we just add butter. Corn grilled in the husks with butter is good as well. As for other veggies its a mess. I have tried numerous time to cook veggies on the egg and they dont come out good (no one eats them). I have tried balsamic vinegar, slow roasting and similar results. We can cook them in the steamer pot in the house but want to change them up to make them taste good. We just bought a peeler that you can use on veggies to make them into small stings. Just need to find out how to make them besides boiling them.
Most of the nights I will not be egging and it will be a quick nuked meal unless the wife is home to cook ahead of time then I just eat when I get home.
Tonight for example we will not get home until after 8:00 - Pizza/italian restaurant here we come as usual as if we had to cook starting at 8:00 we would not eat until after 9 and the kids are in bed.
But some simple meals are on here that could work for other nights. leftovers on salad I guess is a way I should start eating (force it in). Just seeing what other people eat is helpful.
