  • I just cut mine in half, season with a little olive oil and whatever type of seasoning that moves you. Start it flesh side down on medium high heat for long enough to mark it, turn it over and baste with butter to finish it off for a few minutes.

  • looks good to me!! Where do you find thst sauce???
  • Actually I use to think the same thing. In fact whenever I burnt something on the grill I would jokingly tell my wife it was blackened. However, I have learned that it is the blakening seasoning that just makes it "black" in color not burnt. Goo…
  • Oh shoot, Way too much stuff happening around here. I was lookin' forward to hangin' out with you guys, and so was Karen..... Take pics please... :(
  • Now that's sweet. Just got my mini a couple of days ago.
  • Actually I was reheating some sliced prime rib leftover from Easter.
  • Easily done... I think I did the same thing. Now I have a large, medium, small, and I just got a mini yesterday.
  • Looks good getting very excited now. I'm going to be picking my mini up today. Did yours come with the daisy wheel top?
  • I use it for storage now.
  • I remember those a mini on order to make four for me.
  • Thanks Grilled the shrimp with some Bear claw seasoning. Tossed the salad with spinach and arugala salad. Topped it with the shrimp, some parmesan cheese, blue cheese , bacon bits, and balsamic vinegerette.
  • Lookin' good. I have one on order myself. Can't wait1!!!
  • Yep, The lobster came from Costco. ironically I got the top sirloins from the extremely overated Omaha Steaks (in my opinion). However, this is the yearly special they have that actually makes a good deal. 4 top sirloins 4 filet' mignons 2 crab…
  • Personally I've tried it both ways. I have not noticed a distinctive difference. I still alternate from time though. Some may say that leaving the membrane on holds in more moister. Some say taking it off allows for more penetration of the rub on …
  • I am waitin' on the delivery of my mini too. Just my two cents.... Did not know about this whole suspect gasket thing until now but I will wait until mine needs replacing before I do it. The way I figure it, the gasket came in the price of the Eg…
  • Mike, Lookin good. I have come to the conclusion that not only are you the rib master, but the seafood king as well. I love grillin' shrimp, but I always wondered as to what temp you baked those at.
  • Thanks for all of the earlier input. That's why I have that puppy on order right now. And yes, barring any unforseen calamities Karen and I are going to try to make tha scene.

  • Yep, 5-6" it was. Very small task to shovel a path to the Egg today gotta' have those priorities in line . My son took care of the sidewalk yesterday.
  • Now that's an idea Mike!!!! Lookin' good.
  • Now that's a good lookin' pizza!!!
  • Whoa!!!! Those look mighty tasty. Everything from cookies to croissants, to beef wellington...... Who needs an oven???? In fact the wife just got a new oven about a year ago and (and it's still new) it may have been used three times. [IMG][/i…
  • Actually they came as a pre-cooked frozen product. I made a mixture of bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic, and a touch of hot sauce. Just takes around 15-20 minutes at 350 to come out with great results.
  • Looks great!!!! Nuttin' like a little meat lump. And Green bean casserole.
  • Nothin' does a steak like steak!!!!
  • Whoa Mike, Lookin' good!!. Got inspired to do mine a few days ago while trying to clean out my freezer. I froze a couple of caps and forgot about them. Gotta' stop doing that compulsive shopping and shop out the freezer

  • Whoa Mike, I feel your pain. I was just dreading the infamous power wash and treatment on our deck. But looking at the size of yours makes my job seem like small potatoes. Karen says she is going to help this year......yea right
  • Mike, Lookin' good!!! That's all I needed.Gonna' show these pics to Karen to justify my case for getting a mini. :evil:
  • Love that Wok action. Looks great!!!! MG]
  • Actually that is a stove top grill that was sold years ago. I figured it would be just as good for making meatloaf.
