Cowboy Keggin' My Way

This is a long post so I hope you understand why it took me so long to put it together. Everything was really cooked on the Keg.
I started of with making a Rustic Ranch Salsa in which about all of the ingredients were grilled on the Keg.
I did the red onions later and forgot to get a picture.

If you want the recipe I can post it later.

I actually made the Parsley Garlic Compound butter one night so the flavors could marry.
No pictures

Parsley Garlic Butter
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons minced shallot
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Pure all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

Time to make Mongo's Baked Beans and Ham.
Mongos Baked Beans and Ham
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 6 to 8 hours on low or 3 to 4 hours on high
Serves: 4 guys or 6 regular people
1 (15.5-oz.) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15.5-oz.) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15.5-oz.) can small white beans, drained and rinsed
(-lb.) smoked ham steak, chopped into -inch pieces
medium onion, peeled and chopped into -inch chunks
cup maple syrup
cup molasses
2 Tablespoons prepared mustard
cup ketchup
cup water
Pour all of the beans into a slow cooker. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours.

The Overstuffed Baked Potatoes.
Before baking the potatoes on the keg I washed them really good the night before and set them aside to dry. Before putting them onto the grill I rubbed them down well with smoky duck fat I rendered from a previous cook. Then I sprinkled them with Sea Salt.

When they were done I let them cool and then cut and scooped out the insde meat of the potatoes and put it all into a bowl. I had cooked an extra potato to ahve plenty to overstuff them.
In the bowl I coarsely chopped/smahed the potatoes and added sour cream, bacon(Pork Jowl bacon)drippings, cheddar cheesed black pepper. Mixed it up without mashing the potatoes too much and stuffed this mixture back into the potato skins/shells.
These were baked on the keg again until they were all ingredients melted and mixed ncely together.

When done each was adorned with a Pork Jowl bacon rainbow.

Cowboy Fry Bread
1 cup milk
1 package active dry yeast
2 Tb sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
3 1/2-4 cups all purpose flour, sifted
Vegetable oil
Heat the milk over the stove or in the microwave until warm but not hot. Pour into a large bowl and add yeast and sugar. Stir in beaten eggs and salt, then slowly mix in flour until mixture forms a smooth, elastic dough. Cover with a towel and allow to rise until double in size (30 minutes to one hour). Lightly flour work surface and divide dough into 12 pieces roughly the size of tennis balls, then flatten into discs. Let dough rise again, about 10 minutes.
Heat oil to 350 degrees in a deep fryer, large pot or skillet. Fry dough discs one or two at a time for three to five minutes, depending on size, turning once. Makes about 12 servings.

Now I'll be the first to tell someone NOT to fry on the Keg simply because of somewhat uncontrolable heat and the chance of a grease fire. I wanted to do all the cooking on the Keg so I came up with a way of doing it carefully on the Keg. I used a raised fire grate method with a small amount of lump charcoal and wood for the heat source.
Using a deep cast iron Dutch Oven with less oil than really required I was able to carefully fry the Cowboy Fry Bread.

Time for the Steaks
Having a little fun with this cook I actually cooked this as our Sunday meal.
Two of the Cowboy Ribeyes were right at about 1 3/4 inches thick and 23 oz. the other steaks were a lil thicker than an inch Cowboy ribeye and a Strip steak.

Wow, I liked that knife made out of a railroad spike.
