2 new EggHeads (pic heavy)

@Fred19Flinstone posted his daughter cooking chicken yesterday which inspired me. I have to admit, I'm OCD and tend to lean on the anal side when it comes to cooking. But I wanted to share the eggperience with my 9 and 6 yr old sons. I decided to go with pork tenderloin since (2) come in a pack and I wanted to avoid the argument on who was going to pick the seasoning. image My 6 year old went with a pepper and garlic seasoning. He doesn't like the "spicy". Not sure what's up with that...I think he is mine. :) image Now my 9 year old...he is definitely down with the spicy. He went with a rub from a local (Dallas) guy I know which is killer. image During their search, they found these (2) options. You can only imagine what kind of conversation followed with them being 6 & 9...and making me act like I'm 6 or 9. SWMBO just shock her head. image They each learned how to use the greatest eggcessory on the market. image At the end of the day, it was an awesome eggperience. They helped me with bacon wrapped asparagus and crashed potatoes. I asked each of them what they learned. My 9 year old said "sprinkle the rub, don't pour" and my 6 year old went with "clean up as you go"...there is my OCD influence coming in. Happy Easter to everyone! Thanks for looking.

    I've been wanting to add another egg or two. Perhaps this could be my sales pitch to SWMBO. :D

    Its ok, before you said they had a conversation about the two rubs I was already thinking it..  =))

    Great job with your little chefs! Did one decide to take it off at a higher temp or did the both go to the same temperature?

    @Solson005 you really have no idea (unless you have boys and then yes, you know exactly what I'm talking about). The back n forth on the rubs that included the word "butt" was epic.

    My two children are 30 and 36 years old and it is amazing how they still remember some of the things we did together when they were very young. They are great memories.
