My first Q-Pit meal (pics inside)

As promised, here is my first Q-Pit meal:

Asparagus
Brussels Sprouts
Pasta Salad


Here is the prep work, I will probably post the finished pics tomorrow as it is already 8:20 PM here, and the charcoal has not hit the grill yet

The Goods:

The Sprouts:

The Spear Grass:

My darn-near famous Greek pasta salad:

And a grip of meat, marinating as I post:

Bummer!!! I always grill my sprouts in Parchment Paper (its a techniqu that has some fancy French name like En Papilaut, or something like that), but I only have about 2" of parchment left [smilie=rlp_smilie_130.gif] [smilie=rlp_smilie_130.gif] [smilie=rlp_smilie_003.gif] [smilie=madflame.gif]

So off to a saute pan they will go

Oh, well, the meat and asparagus will still qualify me as on-topic

Finished products, as promised:

The sauteed Brussels Sprouts turned out fantastic... I may have to take they "off grill" much more often [smilie=a_movinggreen.gif]



A few rogue chops, asparagus, and a few slices of a 'shroom cap I had:



The final meat products:

Steamy!!!



We drank some California Red Wine, and everyone had a good meal!

Ah yes, a valid question.

The wood shelving on the chargriller loves to soak up the greases from the grates, or my tongs, or whatever touches it. Once the wood absorbs the grease, it is hard as heck to remove, except on clothing that touches the wood.

So, if I don't cover the wood parts with newspaper,I end up with nast grease stains all over my clothes

I see you are promoting a chili forum!!!

I will have to check it out.

I fell in love with Chuck Eyes during college while I worked at a butcher shop in Cincinnati, OH. Occasionally we would get an upper rib primal, and the top portion that the owner didn't think we could get $10.00/lb for would become chuck eye steaks!!! Yes, they mainly went home with me, never to even get their fair shot at the display case
