How’s This For A Simple Explanation?

It Was A @WeberGrills Kinda Day

The day started off cleaning a Black Stainless Steel First Generation Performer Up. She had quite a buildup of charcoal on the bowl but after a couple of hours of razor blade and steel wool she came out shining-

The afternoon brought about a walk around the Back Shore and Past The Wharf.  On this walk I’d taken dozens of times and at an old apartment house I’d driven past thousands and thousands of times was a neglected pretty rare Green 18 inch Weber One-Touch Premium. She’s in very rough shape.  Needing a new lid vent, a new handle(this one is melted), new charcoal and cooking grates and some serious deep cleaning. The frame and table are in very good shape though.  

I spotted her on the walk but was not going to be stopping as I was with my beautiful Kate. 

Later that evening I knocked on the door and asked if it was for sale. It had probable been sitting there untouched for years. We came to an agreement and she’s now in my care. 

Getting home I unloaded the Green One-Touch Premium and pulled the Dove Grey Special Edition Crate and Barrel 2nd Generation Performer around front smoke the Atomic Buffalo Turd Stuffed Avocados that Kate prepared and reverse sear a NY Strip Steak. Both were elegant.  Stuffing avocados and smoking them is my new favorite thing to grill. 

Here’s the stuffing recipe from Kate-

“I didn’t follow a specific recipe. Ive made jalapeño popper dip in the past and just tossed the same ingredients in a bowl. Cream cheese (at room temp) maybe 1/2 cup. TBS of mayo and sour cream. Some shredded cheese, tsp of grated parm, chopped bacon and jalapeños. Mix and spoon on top of avacado. I topped it with a sprinkle or panko crumbs and a little more bacon. 

Next time, I’ll add more mix to it- so double of everything. There was a lot of avacado vs popper mix.”


A very Weber day…

Zero chance that a little snowstorm is gonna keep us from hitting the Weber Performer with some Atomic Buffalo Turds.

Potato Volcanos On The @WeberGrills Performer

First wrapped the russet potatos in tin foil and tossed them right on the hot lump charcoal.

After 10 minutes flip the potatos on the other side and let them go for another 10.  Once the potatos are done, unwrap them and put them to the side and put a little char on your core and seeded jalepenos.

Next cut a flat bottom off your baked potatos and then cut a criss-crossed section off the top which is the entry point for hollowing the potatos out.

Next insert your charred jalapenos into the hollowed out baked potato.

Stuff a stick of your favorite cheese in the jalapeno. You can use whatever cheese you like.

I chose cheddar sticks but you can use shredded too or even cream cheese.

then wrap with bacon starting with the bottom and stretching the bacon a bit to help it stick as you wrap.  You can also use toothpicks to secure the bacon to the potato

When placing on the grill cook them offset the coals.

Here’s my daughter Eloise helping me make the Volcano sauce which consists of sour cream mixed with hot sauce and you can sprinkle in some cayenne pepper. You just keep adding and mixing til you get to the heat you want.

After 20 minutes offset turn the potatos on the grill so the side that was facing away from the coals now face the coals and slather on a bit of your favorite BBQ sauce.

Once they are crisped up take them off and dollop on the volcano sauce.  Watch it drip down and the cut in and enjoy.

Much of the blame for the obsessive hobby of finding and cleaning up old Beautiful Weber Grills can be placed squarely on the shoulders of the founders and members of the Weber Kettle Club
