We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

If your really getting picky...by order Scamp Grouper, Hog & Yellow Tail Snapper are top of the food chain. Then Black, yellow fin and Gag Grouper etc... American Red Snapper is right there too. Then the rest of the snappers Mangrove, Lane etc...Red Grouper is the bottom of the Grouper Species. I saw an interesting article that there is a device coming that will allow to test if the grouper is really grouper http://www.tampabay.com/news/new-handheld-device-can-fish-out-fake-grouper/1264792 . Anyway, they are all good fish. Secret to fish is freshness. Best way is to look at the eyes. Had Gator many times...but don't think its that good. More of a novelty. some of the fellas really like it. To me if I am going to eat swamp critters I really like frog legs and turtle soup (nawlins style). Anyway its all good coming off the BGE.
I am interesting in learning here. The lesson I have learned from brining is to the rinse the bird post the brine and pat dry. The rinsing allows the skin to flavor and also keeps from being overly salty. Good luck on the big day!
So what do you do when the NFL blacks out to local broadcast of your team....you fire up the egg (I am not going to talk about my laptop with a streaming connection to an offshore site and an HDMI cable attached to the outdoor TV)! Today was a all day smorgasbord. We started with seared ahi (put in fridge to enjoy last). We then did a batch of smokey-spicy wings. Then we decided to do a batch of fried panko shrimp- sorry for the non-purest perspective but they were perfect for a mid-game meal. Then I did a small roaster for after the game. Wow-great day in the yard with the egg! Life is good and that goodness for a fast internet connection.
