Grilled Bell Pepper & Onion

On Sunday, instead of having a baked potato and steamed vegetables with my steak, I decided to try something different. I took a red bell pepper and a yellow onion out of the fridge. I cut the top out of the pepper and removed the seeds. I peeled the onion and cut it in half. I put both veggies in plastic bags, pour in some olive oil, salt and pepper, and rubbed them a little. I put them back in the fridge while I started the Egg. When it reached 300, I put them directly on the grill (with just lump - no wood added for flavor.) I left the bottom vent and daisy wheel open. By the time I finished cooking the pepper and onion, it had reached around 400. I cooked them for about 20 minutes, turning them a couple of times each. When the pepper had a nice charring on the outside, I took them off the grill, put them on a plate and covered the plate with foil.[p]Then I let the Egg heat up for the steak (a nice porterhouse, marinaded in Stubb's beef marinade.) When I was ready to eat the steak, I took the foil off the vegetables, cut them into strips, and ate them with the steak. They were excellent. I think I'm going to make that a standard side dish (I'm going to try a yellow bell pepper tonight with a spathcocked chicken.)

    I regularly cook vegetables with steak. The way I do it is this: I cook the steak in the fusion reactor manner. ie as hot as the blamed thing will get taking into acount ambient temp humidity etc. 3 min a side and then a dwell depending on thickness of the meat. During the cook on the 2nd side or the dwell (Depending on the vegetable) I cook them overtop of the steak on a veggie rack. I marinate the vegies with Olive oil garli powder black pepper and kosher salt. If you like asparagus get ready to slap your momma.
