Pastalaya

Well guys about a month ago I decided to cook a pastalaya, which I normally cook in our big 15 gallon cast iron pot... But decided to cook it on the BGE. 


Now for those of you wondering what I am talking about, Pastalaya is Jumbalya essentially but you put in noodles instead of rice. I have been using bowtie noodles, but can be done with any noodle. I used to use fettuccine noodles. 

I decided to cook some pork steaks and baby back ribs directly on the grate before transitioning to putting the dutch oven on the egg. 

Cooking it all down



About to add the rest of the liquid



All done brought inside to serve.. 


Nice subtle smoke flavor.........

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 

  • Been lurking site for a while, finally decided to start posting and becoming active, logging some recent cooks in. Defiantly have to start "remembering" to take pictures lol... Will be cooking chili tomorrow on the Xl and not sure what else I might throw onto the medium..
