Mother's Day on the CGA
 
Inspired by the phantastic phood that Phubar prepares on his GA I decided to fire mine up. Both sons are out of town so it's just me and the missus. I had planned to pack a picnic so we could ride our motos out to the country and enjoy ourselves. Then SWMBO pointed out that the plates on my bike expired in March. :doh: Instead I did a dry run and used my CGA to cook our dinner at home. (On the plus side, since I was not on the bike I could enjoy some wine with dinner. :grin: ) This is my inaugural cook on this cooker. Truth be told, I had never planned to cook on it in the first place. I had bought it for the wood handles but it has started to grow on me. And it looks like a perfect fit on the tail rack on my bike. :biggrin1:

I picked up some New Zealand lamb from Sam's. I also got a rosemary plant - cheaper than fresh rosemary and once planted in the garden, it will keep giving. I also seasoned the lamb with garlic, fresh thyme and S&P with some EVOO. The spuds got EVOO with S&P and the sprouts got some garlic in addition. The onions - which are the first real harvest from this year's garden - got oil and salt.

Time to light up.

Spuds went on first and then the lamb went on the safety zone for a reverse sear. With the spuds partly done the sprouts went on.

Sprouts and spuds done and lamb and onions over the heat. I also threw a briquette size chunk of hickory in for some additional flavor.

It all fits on one plate (to serve.)

And SWMBO is pleased.

I don't do many plated pix but did pause a moment for this one.

Technically not BBQ, but it was good!. I think I hit the limit on the CGA this time. I had to be careful about how I arranged the veggies when I put the meat on the fire otherwise the lid would not close! It was certainly up to the task. I'll be using this again. :grin:

Very nice! Way to please the wifey!

Nice job! They are a versatile little cooker.

BTW, if you look inside the lid, you'll notices there are factory hangers that let you hang the lid on the lip of the long side of the base. Don't have to set the lid on the ground.

Excellent. Got to have the sprouts on skewers real soon.

Great looking BBQ and a happy looking wife! Well done!

Thanks all for the kind words.

I guess I was confusing smoking and BBQ. I would call this grilling, but who am I to argue. Regardless of what we call it it was good. :hungry:

Fair call mate, we call most outdoor cooking BBQ down here.
