Gosh, some really lovely looking cooks.  I remember @Basher had a view about why your chickens were coming out with a colour gradient @Troble.  No sign of that on your most recent cook.  Did you work out a reason?

@David Chang, I love your Indian meal.  Laughed at the thought of you getting a 32 up those stairs of yours, hernia by hernia as you said when you hauled the 19 KK up with your mates.  It may be that having two 19 KKs will work for you.  For my part I like the flexibility of being able to run two grills at different temps for different parts of a meal.  

@tekobo I believe that color was only on the rotisserie. My last few cooks with chicken I have not done rotisserie but that is likely coming soon. I got an itch for Peruvian chicken and I’m finally home for 3 weeks after traveling 8 straight weeks

Couple of recent grill cooks. Love the versatility and grilling room in the 42. In this case fire on the right side only. On the cook with the chicken thighs and breasts I let the bird parts come up to 120 or 130 then moved them down onto the lower grate on the right side to sear before taking them off. Sausages stayed up high but way over to the right over the fire. Veggies in the basket down low are great. Except in this case I didn’t realize the kids wouldn’t like the char on the sprouts as much as I did. Anyway- loving the 42 more and more. Burgers tonight. Can’t wait.

You can’t go wrong with that Peruvian chicken recipe of yours @Troble.  Let the fun begin!

Movin' on up as George Jefferson would say. This pizza actually tasted very good. Pepperoni and sausage. Still ugly but I'm working on that. Cooked a few burgers too. 

 

Looks pretty good to me.  The taste is all that matters anyway!

While no pics of any "homegrown" (with a shoutout to Neil Young!), I did take advantage of the nice weather (mid-50s and sunny) to do a pork tenderloin. Direct, main grate, 350F, with a mash-up rub of Sucklebusters Texas Pecan and SPG.

That little flapper was from me trimming the silver skin off. It was a tasty nibble!

Plated with some nice pasta carbonara and side salad. I love carbonara but hadn't made it in some time - no clue why?

first pork butt/shoulder on the 19 kk hot and fast with a horizontal charcoal split. had to refill the small basket section once during the cook. 1.6kg took around 5 hours at 300. i didn't wrap, but maybe i should have because the pork was dry. or use a water pan next time? do people do that with kk?

paired with some homemade masa harina tortillas and nachos.

I've never used a water pan. Probably wouldn't hurt anything but I don't see the need. You could have done your hot and fast will a disposable drip pan under the butt as a shield from the direct heat. Unless you were trying to test you basket splitter.

Get a controller and fan and chill as the meat slowly roasts under low heat while staying nice and moist in the process. All your cooks look great so you surely don't need advice from me. But I have found that high temps on big pieces of meat don't work for me.

yeah i run a fb 2 pro and guru fan. but looking back, i don't think i've ever had a successful brisket or pork smoke that i was happy with eating. they are cuts i rarely buy because it's expensive in hk and we need a ton of people to consume it. but i really need to master low and slow before hot and fast..

It was really nice out yesterday so while I worked on a pro just in the front yard I cooked some ribs out back 😁

If you are not getting a successful pork butt cook you are probably not cooking it long enough. Early on I would get nervous and pull them off around 190 and while they were ok they were just ok. But once I started letting them go to 200 to 205 the results were much much better. Keep that temp low and let the meat tell you when it is done, don’t you try to tell the meat when it is done.

Been awhile since I did a proper cook so tonight I picked up a couple of filet mignons, rubbed with sea salt & black pepper. Reversed seared in a cast iron pan with Irish butter, rosemary & thyme sprigs

grilled some asparagus in the pan while the meat rested 

roasted baby potatoes with olive oil, truffle salt, rosemary & thyme finished with shredded Parmesan cheese

just like riding a bike. Love this meal as it’s so easy in the KK and so much better than going to a steakhouse 

grilled a bunch of chicken breast after that I’ll use for Ceasar salad/chicken pitas and then chicken bowls with guacamole, corn, black beans & quinoa
