  • Re: Ribs and Bang Bang Shrimp

    Very nice Dyal!!  On the sauce did you just mix till you liked the taste?  I've had Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish and they were great, I tried the online recipe and thought is was way to sweet.

    250-300, just move to gasket level.  And thank you!
  • Open Pit Style Chicken and an CI Apple Crisp

      As a kid we used to cook a bunch of chicken on an open pit and I've been trying to recreate that taste on the egg.  I've gotten close but never spot on.  Today was SPOT on.  @Darby_Crenshaw  made a comment a week or two ago about liking his chicken cooked low n slow and that got me to thinking.  So I decided to go about 4" above the gasket at about 250° direct rubbed with BBBR and Dizzy Dust with 2 chunks of white oak and 1 chunk of cherry  I figured go big or go home. This is about 2hrs into the cook

    Meanwhile I got the dessert going on the small. Just a CI Apple Crisp. 

    After 3hrs the chicken was at 160ish in the thighs and I moved it down to gasket level just to crisp everything up a bit.  This was after going skin down for 30mins

     Plated up with some purple cabbage slaw(same kind as last week because I needed to use up the cabbage) and waiting on dessert to get done.  

    And dessert is ready 

    No plated pics of dessert because I just forgot.  
  • How bout some Steak with that Loaded Potato

     Tonight supper was steak and loaded baked tater.  Couple of good sized spuds rubbed with EVOO and rolled in salt on the small @450 indirect 

    Mrs 3969 wanted steamed veggies so I fired up the rice cooker to steam some carrots,broccoli and cauliflower 

    Couple of Strip Steaks that have been salted for bout 2hrs.  Nothing special but they got cooked on the mini at about 650°. No pics but where else would I cook a steak?  

    I wasnt to into the steamed veggies tonight so I chopped some of the broccoli to go with the cheddar,chives,bacon and sour cream that was destined for a baked tater.  The steak was great but the potato stole the show.

    If I plan on cooking 2 pieces of Ahi I have to buy 3 because I will eat 1 on the way home.  Yours looks awesome!!
