One of these days, I am going to have more time on my hands that I can post my cooks in a timely basis but just ain't happening right now.  Rest assured that all of these cooks were aided by all of you on the board and I do appreciate it.

Although it gets a bad rap, there are some interesting recipes in the Big Green Egg Cookbook, especially when I got it on Amazon for like 15 bucks on sale. I decided to make the Chili-Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Caramelized Blackberry Sauce.  I changed it to Cherry sauce since that was the preserves I had on hand.  We served it up with some Hasselback potatoes although we made those inside. It was excellent although I would reduce the sauce more as it was a little thin.  Here are some pics:

It was pouring while I was cooking so I had to improvise


Final plate with Hasselback potatoes and Green Beans


Over Labor Day, cooked a variety of things but unfortunately didn't get pics of everything.  In addition to the below, we did scallops on the salt block and also Steven Raichlen's Chicken under a Brick.  So sorry I didn't get the pictures but I swear, it happened.  

First try at ABTs on the Egg.  Stuffed with Cream Cheese, garlic, cilantro and lime juice.  So good.



Also made a chocolate chip cookie in my Cast Iron Skillet cooked on the Egg.  Actually, the first Baking I have done.  I got the recipe from a post by Griffin with the recipe on his blog.  Here is the link.  
It was really good and everyone loved it.

Good stuff and I do promise I will try and be more current on my posts.

  • Thanks for sharing. I like the BGE cookbook. Thank God I didn't listen to some who didn't like it. Glad it is part of my collection.

    Nice cooks.  Especially like the improv on the umbrella. 
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

  • It all looks great.  Cookies were not on my radar until now.  Keep taking pics!

    Very nice.  After all the chatter and pics of ABTs, your photo of them has prompted me to try them this weekend.  Never done them before.

  • Wolf pack, Here is the recipe I used but lots of me out on the web. Basically, you cut slits into a potato but not all the way through. Put some melted butter over the top and some Parmesan cheese and then bake ever grill or oven. Really good.
