This was awesome...

Chese Steak Fatty - inspired by another thread on another board.

This is how I like my cheese steaks...

Italian Sausage....



Provolone cheese -

YES, I SAID PROVOLNE!!!



Fried Onions, sauteed mushrooms, steak...



Getting happy on the Egg - over 2 corned beef and surrounded by pig balls (that's what I'm calling them)  that I saw on another board.

All Sliced Up...





OMG!!!!!

OK - here are the Pig Balls - Italian Sausage wrapped around Velveeta, enrobed in bacon...





Last but not least - the Pastrami - This is for tomorrow...

Just going on the Egg....

That all looks delicious......That steak fattie looks awsome.  I used steakumms and some home made Cured Italian sausage when I made mine and they were great.

Nice job

I was thinking of getting a guru.

Hey Craig - I'm surprised to hear your Egg won't hold a low temp - are you lighting up too much lump perhaps? What's your process for getting it ready to cook?

Kinda like the minion method. About 6 chunks of lump in the chimney to start. Using RO lump. It got fairly aggravating. The mes makes life easier, but I do wish I could figure out how to make my egg stay at 225. I have the cast iron adjustable lid. The BGE home office and store is close by..they aren't much help. I am going to get a charcoal burner for the new place.. Prolly a WSM and a guru. Might get the gurur and adaptor fot the egg.

Thanks for asking Elly!!

Here's how I start my Egg -

I take a paper towel and drizzle it with veggie oil.

I twist it up and lay it on the coals in the center of the Egg (I use Royal Oak lump too) and light it. Once the coals catch I typically close the lid to let the ceramics heat up. After it's drafting pretty weel I put in the plate setter and let that heat up. You need to keep an eye on the temps so they don't get out of hand. As you probably know once the temps get high it takes a long time to get them back down. If I'm cooking low and slow I usually start really keeping an eye on things around 200 degrees.

Thanks Elly!! 

  Once I get moved and settled in Fl I will prolly try it one more time for smoking.

 It may be the medium is just not big enough.

I love it for baking and steaks...

  Have a great day!

Looks good Elly!  I prefer provolone on my cheese steaks also!  Where abouts in SE, PA are you?

All of it looks great! I'd love some more info on the pig balls. How did you assemble them? It's just italian sausage, cheese, and bacon?
