    They look great! You had a good teacher ;)


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

    Looks like you did a great job, now for the important question what’s next?   Egging has a way of growing on you!!!! If your up for it I would suggest  mahi-mahi tacos served with cast-iron veggies and guacamole.

    Me too! It's fish severing set.  There are also plates shaped like fish.  And a soup terrine.

    Never a doubt that Dichicko's would play a role.  Congrats on stepping out of the shadows that no doubt loom quite large.  Great cook while under the gun.

    OK, I'll admit to some confusion... Why the "100 percent solo cook" thread?
    Maybe it's just me, and how I've been cooking for over 40 years (started helping my father cook). Watched dad grill and just picked up what I needed that way plus learned from experience. Even when I changed over from the gas grill to the BGE, I just figured out what I needed for the transition. More a learning where the hotter spots were than anything else. 
    Of course, I almost never use recipes when I cook. The only exceptions are with the bread I make (each week) and if I'm trying something out for the first time. Even then (sans bread) it's more about getting an idea of what it's supposed to be and then tuning it to fit my taste.

  • Everyone learns differently.  I wanted more advice and thankfully had it from someone who's been doing it for a while in my dad.  He was there for my first two cooks and that seems to be all I needed for confidence.  

    It might not seem like much of an accomplishment to someone who's been doing it for awhile but I was proud so that's fine.  They turned out great.

    As well you should be. I had been grilling over fire my entire life. Then I finally bought the BGE. I had a learning curve to work through, before I thought I turned out what I thought was excellent.

    No shame in my game, I asked some of the best cooks in America (those in this forum) how to do it. They helped me and I was thrilled to turn out the best food, for friends and family, I have ever cooked in my life.

    Congrats on your first solo climb. The view from the top was worth the effort.

    Keep posting and keep cooking. You are a great addition to this group of miscreants.

    Thank you for sharing and have fun.

    It appears Grasshopper has indeed snatched the pebble from Master Po's hand.  Excellent cook.

    Thanks for the encouragement I appreciate it!  I've really enjoyed the few cooks I've done so far!

    @lloveagoodyolk.  Please don't take this as an insult but as a compliment. I don't know if you're familiar with the blues/rock artist Mindi Abair but she wails on the sax. She's bad a$$ but she has a song " Pretty Good For a Girl. Google it you'll understand what I'm talking about. Just so you know, I have 3 sisters, two daughters been married 33 yes and my mom is 94.
