I'm trying to think of something different to cook this weekend on the egg.  I've done the pulled pork, ribs and chicken.  What are you guys planning on making this weekend?


  • Spatchcock Cornish Game Hens and roasted corn on the cob sounds pretty good about now!
  • If I have the time, was gonna see about grinding my own burger.  We have the grinding attachment for the Kitchen Aid Mixer & have never used it. 
    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

    I've always wanted to try a brisket but with all the horror stories I'm afraid to waste that much time and money to have it flop

    For sure I will be doing some pork belly on Saturday, but Sunday depends on what I find in the market.

    Maybe some roast apples w. brown sugar and butter, depending on what's in the orchards.

    Oh, and Mark0525, you do have to try brisket at least once. Tho' I can't say any I've done have been all that good, they all were eaten pretty quickly. The only advice I can offer is to let them get about 195, and slice thinly.

    What exactly is pork belly besides the belly of a pig.  How is it cooked?  Is it hard to find?  What's it like.  Sorry never really heard anyone cooking it.

    Thanks, I do want to try it just to see.  Most of the cooks come out really well that I'm afraid of failing I

    We are grilling shrimp and assorted vegetables for a pasta salad. Some of the roasted vegetables will go into a Stromboli with some feta, cream cheese, and cheddar - all will cooked on the egg.
    Every day is a bonus day and every meal is a banquet in Winter Springs, Fl !
  • Ribeyes tonight.  Cooked shrimp stuffed with crab (actually crab cake from Fresh Market), and wrapped in bacon, held together with a toothpick, last night.  Placed on a hot griddle and very carefully turned them a time or two to get the bacon browned. Dome temp approx 450.

    I'm making bruschetta along with some some smoked chicken quarters.
    context is important :)
  • Pork Belly is bacon.   But not yet processed to BE bacon.

    I"m a stubborn old coot.   I was at a BBQ competition last weekend and got knocked over by this one competitor who gave me a taste of his brisket.
    Take the time to learn to do a brisket.  The recipe's here are good ones!  And cook it slow. yeah,  (drool)

    Right now I got a turkey in there.   Smoking up with cherry wood.
    You might ruin a couple briskets when you do your first ones.  But Let me tell you this:  Once you got it down your wife and friends will think you're a genius !!   They will worship the ground you walk on,  You'll be immortalized with your statue in the town square...(ok, maybe that's going to far)

    So what if you ruin the first brisket.  ??
