That looks great! Those are some of the best cross-hash marks I have seen. Let us know your secret.

Also, how did you keep the bacon wrapped around the mini-asparagus. I didn't see any butcher string. Thanks for the pics, and bon appetit!

Cast Iron Grates? It doesn't look like a typical Weber kettle cooking grid from the picture.

Looks fantastic - I just cooked some asparagus myself tonight - the bacon thing would of been awesome.

Where did the cast iron grates come from?

It looks like they may interfere with your cooking. Do you need me to fix that for you?

The cast iron grate is from Weber, but i think they discontinued it because the majority of people is to dumb to taker proper care of it.
For me, it is wonderful and once its seasoned goo, its kinda like nonstick, really easy to clean.
It comes with an outer ring with hinged sides.

The Asparagus was held together only by the bacon, i tied it very tight and the Bacon also shrinks while cooking. No toothpick needed.

Come back tonight for the rest of the show :twisted:

I think the size of that tenderloin qualifies your first t-bone as a Porterhouse. Looks delicious !!!

The other Steak was giving my some headache, as the tenderloin was quite big but only half as thick as the other side. Like that, it would be almost impossible to cook both sides to medium.
Well, before i waste a good steak i rather get creative, so i cut both pieces of meat off the bone.
The Roastbeef will be grilled as usual, but for the thin tenderloin i have better plans :twisted:


First, i had to increase the surface to mass ratio in favour of the surface.
In other words, pound the **** out of it...

Then i spread a goat cheese, mixed with roasted garlic and chopped rosemary
on top.

Rolled it up , wrapped in Bacon and tied it together with butchers String

This is gonna have to wait in the refrigerator til tomorrow, as i cant
grill it today :?
At least i´ll have something to look forward to at work, tomorrow.

Btw, i just noticed i used 2 kinds of Bacon in one recipe, beat that !

Hope my doc doesnt get to read this :oops:

Well THAT was a solution .. I usually build a two-level fire, and put the strip half on the hot part, and cook it as if the tenderloin were not even there. You have a lot of ingenuity and energy to attack a problem as you did. I'm sure the results will pay off !!

I've got a pair of perfectly good filets in my freezer that I could just grill normally, but you've inspired me. I'll have to find some pancetta tonight when I go a shopping ..

That's too bad they discontinued it. I would LOVE to have that grate.

You can get a PCI grate from a Genesis
that fits in the space between the hinges
on the newer hinged grates.

Lodge makes a cast iron grate
and Steven sell the Tuscan grill
which adds removable legs
making it more versatile.

Yes! I use Steven's Tuscan Grill directly on top of my wire grates. It doesn't have to custom fit down inside. Just get you some cast iron that will fit on top.

Don - I want, I need, I must have some of that. It looks so wonderful! 8) Fantastic job.

I posted this before, but I couldn't find the thread. After some additional research, here's what I have:

Order the part # 91425 (which is the wire part of the rack) and the PCI cast iron grate for the b or c series gassers (Part # 41452). That is the exact setup shown here. Total cost is about 45 bucks with shipping. The griddle (Part #9881) also fits into the wire part of the grate for cooking breakfast.

Modified from a post on the Virtual Weber Bullet by user Chris K. Thanks Chris.

EDIT- apparently the wire rack is not longer available, just got off the phone with Weber. I may try back and talk to a different rep however. Drat you Weber :evil: You are making it very difficult to love you. :roll:



I can't wait to do breakfast on my Platinum 8) -disregard :x

Cheers!
