Double cut pork chops, DP tsunami spin, baked potatoes, moon shot

edited January 8 in EggHead Forum

In today's episode of how much can you get into a Minimax, reverse seared double cut pork chops and jacket/baked potatoes, cooked outside next to a roaring fire in our chiminea.

The chops had Dizzy Pig "Tsunami Spin" rub, possibly our favourite simple meat/rub combo. Potatoes to IT 160F on the lower level before transferring to upper level and adding the pork chops. This meant the potatoes were at IT 200F when the pork chops hit IT 145F. Potatoes transferred to warming oven with plates, pork chops seared. Then dinner whilst photographing the moon.

Pork chops with Tsunami Spin on the lower level:

Potatoes on the upper level, already partly cooked:

The sear!

Plated and ready to eat:

Arty close up shot ... should have used f4 instead of f2.8:

Back outside in the warmth of the chiminea:

Moon shot, nice crater definition:

Thanks for looking!

    Thanks folks.

    @milesvdustin the chops were nearly 2 inches thick, top skin and fat trimmed off. Our butcher cuts them specially for us. Really tasty.

  • Looks awesome! 

    The peas on the potato made me spit my water out laughing. When I was a kid my neighbor's mom used to make green peas with literally every meal at 5pm sharp (she was a weird bird) 

    Because I was always just eating quickly to get back outside before dark, I would dump them on top of whatever she was serving just to get them down. Spaghetti, loaded potatoes, chili, casserole...it use to piss her off to no end.

    @northGAcock not really. Threw a couple twigs in it while we were still at Disney. Maybe this weekend.
