BGE Brent Tribute Cook Thread

Sometimes good ideas are contagious. Several of us were discussing ways to honor our friend Brent over the weekend. Our boy Steve @thetrim was thinking along the same lines when he graciously posted a Brent tribute cook. We would like to honor Brent (and Nichole since we all know who was doing the cooking ;) )  by encouraging each of you to recreate a dish that Brent has posted on the forum previously and post it here along with the link to Brent’s original post.

Brent and I would talk often about the status and overall health of the forum. When things would go sideways in our opinion, we always vowed to “fix the problem” by posting cooks. We figured great cooks would restore the forum to former glory. Without our friend, former glory is unattainable but let’s give it the ol’ Wildcat try. 

To participate, simply click on the “discussions”
button on his profile and decide from the many great cooks he posted. 

Thanks in advance for participating and honoring our friend and his family.

    Great suggestion!  Ready participant.
    I will give the Denver Lamb ribs another go since he steered me down that rabbit hole.  As you can tell from the linked thread, this lamb adventure presented a few challenges. 
    And yes they have been intentionally relegated to the freezer since getting my a$$ kicked by them back then!
    Just pulled out a rack so I anticipate firing this up Weds. 

    Louisville;  "indeterminate Jim" here; L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.

    I was actually thinking about this notion this morning.  There are a number of posts to pick from.  I'll try and do one of his recipes justice this week.
    It's "Smokin Gal", not "Smoking Al".

  •  Here is an interaction I had with Brent about one his cooks back in April. His down to earth nature, compassion, and awesome wit are all evident in the response.
     I told him I was going to plagiarize it. Will attempt it soon.

    @DoubleEgger he inspired me to make a Rosemary Garlic pork belly fried green tomato and jalapeño pimento cheese BLT with sriracha aioli. 

    I’ll allow it.  ;)

    Norah and I are hoping that this weekend we can do some seafood as a tribute, we know it won’t be up to snuff comparatively, but want to honor him as he was always kind to us.  He and some other eggheads did something very special for us.
