looking for cook ideas

I am cooking for 5 people on Sat night and looking for some Ideas .
As of right now I am leaning towards a Tri-Tip  but wondering if any one has a good suggestion



  • Prime rib
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

  • Salmon

    Tri-tip :P

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Steaks or Split Chicken Breasts. Those are always crowd pleasers if you hit your temps!
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • I've seen petit tenders (Scotch tender, Chuck tender) in Longo's Zehrs and Metro this week. Maybe we are finally getting worldly eh? They have all been AAA Angus.

    Something tikka masala. Egg gets hot enough to actually cook Indian foods.
    Minimax and a wood-fired oven.
  • And if you don't overcook the tri-tip, it slices so well for sammies, if you have any leftovers….

    If you have a plate setter, smoke two chickens. There will be enough for everybody and plenty for leftovers. Brine over night (dry or wet) for best results. The people love BBQ. Give the people what they want.

    If you don't have plate setter, I recommend making a variety of kebabs. Maybe lamb and chicken? The egg makes some of the best kebabs I've ever had.
