going to the NC mountains next week. I'm only going to take the mini. I do need some recipes to "show off".
any ideas?


    The only difference for using my mini is 9" grid and 4 hours per load of lump.

    Recipes - I use them all.

  • damn! I accidently deleted my 1st response!

    How many you cookin for?
    are you staying someplace that has a kitchen (ie- a Fridge)?

    don't forget to bring your cooking tools.

    some easy direct 400 degree mini cooks include hamburgers, hot dogs, tenderloin steaks (3 fit comfortably, 4 with some creativity)

    salmon fillet, shrimp on skewers ( I cut down the wooden ones to fit in the mini)

    I use the raised grid on it a lot for indirect cooks where I make a drip pan/heat barrier out of aluminum foil. you can cook 3.5 - 4 lb whole chickens or roasts this way
    I also can do close to 2 lbs of steak tips this way, just need to keep rotating the crop

  • Anytime Zippy - bring your little friend (pig with a tear) and he can play with my bichons. B)

    Okay - he must have name. I will need to know his name (or is it a she?) to introduce him to my bichons.
