Was feeling like smashburgers today and someone mentioned wanting shrimp... Why not both? So I started out with some wild caught Gulf shrimp and fresh ground 85/15 sirloin. Not everyone at Casa de Cue is a fan of shrimp so I needed some other toppings. How about bacon, baby bellas and sweet onion sautéed in garlic butter, and of course some sharp white and yellow cheddar cheese.
The burgers were smashed on the KJ Cast Iron griddle and then the bacon went down to grease it back up for the shrimp. I also did a few grilled skewers and some scampi'd shrimp on the stove after I sautéed the 'shrooms and onions in a CI skillet.
Hello all. Just purchased a Kamado Joe from Costco. I bought the Costco floor model from a special KJ sales event.
I have not yet brought it home and used it, but will very soon. This will be my first Kamado grill.
Our niece and nephews stayed over yesterday, we ate, watched fireworks, and made pizza dough! My 12 year old nephew, Zack, is into cooking and he always lends a hand during summer cookouts or when he's at the house. We got him his own grill a year or so ago for Christmas and he still uses it.
I asked him if he wanted to learn how to make pizza, he was all about it! So, I pulled up Ckreef's KA tutorial and we went to work. I had him scale all the ingredients, showed him how to proof the yeast, and explained to him the what/why of the method. Our dough went to work on top of the fridge and was good to go by 11 am today.
I fired up the Big Joe but couldn't get it past 500F, it's been raining and I had less than a full load of lump in there from yesterday's 6 hour rib/chicken cook. I set up my multi-level arrangement and we went in to form our dough balls for the rest.
