Thought I would see if anyone else liked to cook out on the pit. Post your favorite recipes here if you have any. Everyone should benefit from this.........well, except for you northerner's.:twofinger
The only thing I'd change is putting it over direct heat for a time. For some reason I love those burnt ones!! :drool:
- New potatoes sliced thinly
- Lay out Alum foil
- Put a light EVOO spread on the foil
- Lay down 2-3 layers of potatoes
- Salt (thoroughly), pepper
- Repeat 3-5 until potatoes are in an even pile
- Put a foil "lid" and seal edges of foils together
- Cook over indirect heat ~20min
Nope, no salt whatsoever. Well, perhaps on the fries, but not on the steak....Cookee, I'm not sure I would ever cook meat without the use of some salt. Its purpose is to enhance the flavor without ever tasting salt. Are you sure you don't use that? The room-temp approach is an excellent one, generally speaking, unless you like really rare :thumb:
My cousin, for some reason, cannot let a piece of meat sit still on a BBQ. He's forever prodding it, getting it to make sizzling sounds while turning it into a nice piece of leather. :barf2:...I agree with cookee, a steak should not need any seasoning at all provided 1) it is a quality cut of meat, and 2) it is properly cooked (to medium rare for me). Dodgy meats and poor grillers who mash all of the juices out will require some sort of seasoning to make the resulting shoe-leather edible. Sauces only required in the most extreme cases where you can't decide whether to eat the steak or reshingle your house with it. Anything beyond that (read: charcoal) goes directly to the dog, or the trash if she turns her nose up at it.
I could eat off the grill year-round, though sadly this summer we haven't used it as much as in past years...
BBQ is something I dearly love and fear cooking myself. I rarely have hours on end to ensure the house (or deck) doesn't go up in flames, so I haven't really made a strong effort there, but really really want to.Hey, cookee: when you talk about a BBQ plate, do you mean a griddle?
