Breakfast - French Toast and sausage links on the griddle


French toast batter = equal parts milk and eggs a little vanilla, sugar and cinnamon







Plated  - Dad get overly done(burned ones)  cooking on the kettle temp control was an interesting challenge, I basically shut all vents down to get the griddle where I wanted it.


Syrup is from @MrHoss best stuff to come out of Ontario since Rush.

Kind of a Day1/Day2 cook, but wrapped it up today, and it's the first of three I'll have in the next few days. Today's cook: Habanero BBQ Baked Beans. Of course, it's kind of a twofer as I needed to smoke a pork shoulder to get the drip action in the beans. Began with the layout:

Now for the shoulder rub: (sucks that I don't live down the street from The Spice House in Chicago anymore!)

And the magic bean dust @OoPEZoO provided:

Bacon fried up and veggies taking a hot bath in the grease:

Meanwhile, the WSM is reaching temp, so the beans go into a CIDO and take their position in the basement:

Shoulder takes the top bunk. (Don't tell the butt that it's not the star of this show!)

3 1/2 hours in, and the beans come upstairs and let the shoulder have the run of the WSM for the rest of the day:

I could make a meal of this stuff! (Oh, wait, I just did…)


Beans will be center stage again on the 4th. I have a couple other cooks to plan now. Can't wait to see what everyone else cooks up!

How's about some lunch

I decided to forego the griddle and went with the grill grates for a panini grilled cheese.

Ingredients: Sourdough bread, smoked turkey, salsa cheese(holy cow delish), Piri Piri sauce (another gift from @MrHoss) mixed with mayo





Going on the Mini 18 OTG







The Press


There we go


This sandwich was so amazingly delicious, Grill grates if anything else are perfect for making panini type sandwiches.

MacEggs and I had a traditional family dish of mine for brunch today, bacon mushroom sandwiches:





Crisped bacon get wrapped in paper towels:



I drain some of the bacon fat out of the pans leaving some for the mushrooms to cook in. If after adding the mushrooms you notice the bottom of the pan dry add in some reserved fat:





When the mushroom have cooked through they will release water. When this happens place contents of pan in several layers of paper towels to dry the mushrooms then return to the pan to cook:



What you are looking for is to crisp up the outside of the mushrooms a bit:



Do the paper towel wrap on the mushrooms at the end too.

Toast 2 pieces of white bread, butter them and put bacon and mushrooms on with salt and pepper:

Looking good today! I regret making my tuna melt inside today but timing necessitated it. I've got some pork chops brining in the fridge for dinner, more on that later.

I simply love seeing @LightningBoldtz cooking so bloody much. Fine looking food Jeff....those grillgrates do look handy for pannini style finish. Only one real problem with cooking so much though L.B. - I think you need another cooker or three to handle it. Seriously.

@LightningBoldtz

Once you've got a few cooks and a good coating of grease in the kettle you should be able to dial in those temps 8) She's too clean! ;)

Love the French Toast idea - especially cooked on a red beauty AND outfitted with the slick griddle!

Mushroom stuffed with stems, shallots, garlic and blue cheese:







I drain off the liquid before stuffing.









Had some dough left from yesterday's cookup but did not have Mac and his Kettle Pizza attachment. I made do with L.B.'s upper rack from his kamado......using it to elevate my stone to a inch or so from the lid vent:

Spent more time with my family and friends tonight and less time taking pictures but managed to take two of the preparation & grill set up.

Lightly seasoned and EVOO on the bone in chicken breasts & drums - locally grown yellow squash and onion skewers on firewire - twice baked chopped potatoes. The wife made pie too but that didn't hit the grill so it's not featured. You'll have to take take my word for it but, it looked as good as it tasted.





If the rain holds out tomorrow there will be more to come. Good times
