    Had an awesome day today hangin out with family and cooking up some surf and turf. Consisted of clams and oysters for appetizers steamed under a soaked gunny sack on the Blackstone griddle. Cleaned and soaked the clams and oysters in old bay and lemons. Fired the griddle up on high and once it got hot tossed them on the griddle and then covered with the wet gunny sack. Steamed for about 15 minutes and the appetizers were done

    Now time for the steaks and the boil. Two T bones and four New York’s cooked on the Weber to about 120 and then transferred to the cast iron for sear and bitter bath. 51902089-2B98-41AF-A3A4-9FE78326135D.jpeg E0096519-92F1-4E99-9460-DE78DE6BACFE.jpeg 7B6829C2-CA54-475B-9C14-B910037D021B.jpeg Now on to the boil, king crab, snow crab, shrimp, sausage, mini potato’s, onions, garlic,mushrooms,corn on the cob and old bay seasoning.

    I was the same way when I saw the smokinVOLfan thread from last 4th of July. He definitely inspired me.

    Oh man, that is one surf and turf extraordinaire!

    You nailed that one Doug.

    I was born and raised on the west coast and really miss the oysters and clams.

    Glad it turned out good man! Everything looks great. You nailed it on the first time! Bet it won’t be your last though!

    Love the gunny sack on the blackstone. Never thought of that and I am hoping to get a camp chef or blackstone griddle in the very near future

    I literally just sent you a PM thanking for you thread in this cook. You were helping in California yesterday and you had no idea lol. The gunny on the Blackstone worked well. The one thing I would do different is warm the water for the gunny sack so it’s not a drastic temp change when the water hits the griddle. You could probably shave five minutes off your cook. I learned a couple other thing as well so message me when you get yours and I’ll share with you. Thanks again dude.

  20. Look at my Avatar and just replace the crawfish with the crab and shrimp. Look familiar?
