I thought that since we’ve just started this blog about Egging that I should show some of the highlights of the last 7 months of cooks. So here goes…
Sep 11, 2011: the very first cook, I did after we got back from Fargo EggFest was simple burgers. I didn’t want to do something too complicated for the first one, I was more or less just learning how to light it properly and control the temperature.
Sep 13 2011: the second cook on the BGE. Did a beer can chicken and some grilled peaches
Sep 14, 2011: First steaks off the Egg
Sep 16, 2011: First pizza attempt… these have got WAY better since!
Sep 18, 2011: To celebrate my first week of egging… I did a TURKEY!!! It was a little over smoked, but it turned out pretty good!
Sep 21, 2011: Greek marinated pork tenderloin
Sep 22, 2011: Chicken Thighs. Left a couple unsauced so I could try the rub on its own.
Sep 23, 2011: My first (and so far only) Brisket attempt. I should point out that this was a low quality cut of meat I picked up at Wally World in Fargo. I was just excited because I never see brisket in Canadian grocery stores. My mistake was not known the US meat grading system and this cut was the lowest on the scale. It tasted good, but was sort of dry.
Sep 26, 2011: My first Spatchcock Chicken… never heard of this technique before but it’s basically taking the back bone out of the chicken and cooking it flat on the grill. It cooks faster and more evenly this way.
Oct 1, 2011: EGGtoberfest!!! We had people over for a big potluck gorge-fest! I’ll let the pics speak for themselves.
Oct 15, 2011: Ribz (and some tater skins)
I guess I took a one month picture taking hiatus…
