Help! What to cook for holiday dinner

Ok Gang, I know I'm a little early but the wife wants to do a trial run for our Christmas dinner with friends. It's our year to host dinner and I have mandated that the main course will come off of our Egg. No complaints from the wife...She just wants me to perfect the meal.[p]I'd like to cook something "fancy" and I was thinking a Rib roast or something....I'd really like to hear your opinions on what to cook.
Thanks, BobbyG


  • BobbyG,[p]Roasts can be very good, either encased in salt or regular slow roast. Lots of posts on both methods and the results are delicious.[p]A brined turkey can also be a religious experience so you may want to try that also. Brine recipe of your choice and I have cooked at 23# bird in < 3 hrs after brined.

    BobbyG,[p]We did a stuffed boneless rib roast last week for guests. Made several holes lengthwise and inserted carrot sticks, chorizo, and cheese. Rubbed with Cow Lick. Can't remember if we used chips or not. [p]Came out great and was a real crowd-pleaser! Very "fancy" presentation when we carved it. Zero leftovers.[p]DrEgg
