  • Re: MiniMax on the beach in Mexico

    hey MJG-  I remember those days from growing up in the Midwest and I don't miss the snow at all.  although if  wanted to see the white stuff, I can drive 2 hours north to Flagstaff and see it up there but would want to hightail it back to the Valley of the Sun  and sit poolside drinking cold beer and grilling on my Big Green Egg!

    this was too good not to post, didn't make these on the MiniMax but they are indicative of what the trip entails food-wise.  one of our traveling companions sent this to me early this  AM. Now, THAT'S shrimp cocktail!

    Yes, spring break with my kids- and a bunch of their buddies whose parents rented houses in the same area where we were.  The weather couldn't have been better.  Low high 70s to low 80s by day, and mid to high 50s at night.  breezy most of time but Monday night the air was pretty still and I don't like not having a breeze.  The moving air keeps bugs away.

    Ok how did you get that setup or have the beaches setup grill stations?


    there was an outdoor kitchen right on the sand.  the insert had a rusted grill grate (it's off to the left) that I removed and just set the MiniMax in that spot.  it was as though it was meant to be there!


    Next trip:  PIZZA on the beach!

  • MiniMax on the beach in Mexico

    Hey guys (and gals).  One of the reasons I was so excited about the MM is that it could be taken with us on trips to Mexico.  Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point).  It worked out awesome. It's a little heavy to transport and there were concerns of the ceramic elements (firebox, platesetter, pizza stones, etc. incurring damage from vibrations but this was neutralized by using some cardboard rings and spacers.  The shrimp you get down there for $10 a pound are U 10 and they are awesome.  I didn't take pictures of the other stuff we cooked but suffice it to say that the MiniMax is definitely a must have on a trip like this.
