It's been a while since I've posted but rest assured we cook on the Egg(s) EVERY night, unless we're eating something we made the night before. Tonight's dinner was different so I thought I'd take a few pics.

Cutting up redskin potatoes for steak fries:

Baby carrots in EVOO and brown sugar, roasted in a dutch oven at 325 direct for about 50 minutes, stirred every 10:

Redskin wedges roasting in the other Egg, in a dutch oven at 325 direct, EVOO and Dr. BBQ Eastern Rub, roasted for about 50 minutes and stirred every 10:

Carrots all done:

Potatoes all done:

Grilling some eggplant slices, Dizzy Dusted:

The different part. Some good friends suggested that we try marinating flank steaks overnight in marinade made from one part Coca Cola, one part ketchup, and one part Italian Dressing. Here they are after 24 hours in the marinade:

Grilling the steaks, 500 direct for about 10 minutes total:

Eggplant all done:

Flank steaks all done:


On the plate:


Carrots with EVOO and brown sugar were excellent. My wife makes these all the time in the oven with her stoneware. This is the first time we've cooked these in the Egg and of course they were very good.

Eggplant - OK, but I'm not a big eggplant fan to begin with.

Steak fries are a huge favorite here, we make these all the time in the Egg. Very good tonight as well.

Flank steak with the Coke/Ketchup/Italian marinade: not quite what I expected. The flavor of the marinade by itself was good and I had high hopes for the steaks but I didn't get quite the level of flavor infusion that I was expecting after 24 hours. They definitely did not suck - there was some nice char and carmelization on the outside and they tasted fine, just not quite as "marinated" as I thought they would be.

    Thanks for sharing, very nice. The carrots and potato's look particularly appealing.

    It all looks great Jack. Great variety and the spices sound great. Making me hungry. Have a TRex going now with AZRP shrimp to follow.

    That Sir is a fine looking meal. Hate the steaks didn't turn out to your expectations. The veggies would have been a meal alone.

    I thought the steak looked great. Try leaving the Ketchup out and poke a few holes in the meat.
    Got to try those taters.

    Very nice-looking cook, Jack! I'll have to try the DO carrots and potatoes--those really caught my eye.

    Not sure what the coke and ketchup do..but I marinade my ribs in italian dressing a lot of times...keeps them moist and tender...

    Great looking cook. We did a tenderized flank steak last week marinated in olive oil, worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar and garlic for a couple of hours. The wife thinks this cut could double for fajitas.

    Everything looks great, but I thought you had a giant pot of mini wieners there until you said it was carrots!
    Could you possibly give me a quick rundown on how you do the potatoes?
