Default First Souffle on the BGE

I made dinner tonight for my wife and myself on the ceramic cooker and decided to try a peach souffle for dessert.

Dinner was blood orange/apricot/ginger glazed pork tenderloins, french style creamed cabbage with meyer lemon and grilled corn. Sorry but no pics of dinner.

I was terrified that the souffle was going to fail because the friggin fog starting rolling in 200 feet overhead 20 minutes before I put it on the egg. Humidity often spells death for souffle resulting in a sad looking deflated little lump. There is an amazing souffle restaurant in San Francisco that can always turn out perfect souffles regardless of the weather (without AC!) but they won't share their secrets with me so I'm at the mercy of the weather.

I didn't get the best rise in the world (make jokes now) but it did hold together well and the texture and flavors were spot on.

To cook, I locked in 400 degrees and went indirect on a raised grid. I cooked it for 14 minutes.

I thought I would share some pics.

Thanks for taking a look at my first souffle on the egg.
