Been looking forward to this day all week. We woke up early this morning, in order to enjoy it to it's fullest. It was such a beautiful day out, that it would have been blasphemous to cook inside. :)

I found a few homemade Spicy Chorizos in the freezer and started with those. This is one of my favorite Steven Raichlen recipes. You can find the recipe in the Barbecue Bible, page 231. Here is the post when I originally whipped those up:

I didn't plan ahead, so I had to use the Auto Defrost option in the microwave. :? It kind of cooked the inside a bit when I did this, so the sausages were a little overdone after I grilled them up. They were still good, but a little dry.

After I took the Chorizos off the BGE, I threw the spider and wok on there for some fried potatoes. Started with a little bit of chopped onion:

Then threw on the diced up potatoes that I had nuked in the microwave for a few minutes (along with some butter) to soften up:

My wife made the Bacon, Eggs and Grits inside. The Chorizos were a little dry from having to defrost them in the micrrowave, but that wasn't anything that dunking them in Grits and Hot Sauce couldn't take care of. :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hmm...I just noticed in the first post where I mentioned that the Chorizos were dry. I did overshoot the temperature this time around, to about 185 deg. But now I think the main problem was the lack of fat. I'm going to have to whip up another batch of these, and make sure there is enough fat in them. The flavor is amazing.

I know what you mean, BBcueZ...I love cooking all 3 meals outside too. Been way too long since I've camped.

Eddie, I love me some grits and G.R.I.T.S. (girls raised in the south)... :wink:

Nicely done. Why didn't you do the eggs outside? When you say chorizo...do you mean Spanish or Mexican chorizo?

Great use of the wok! I really need to get one but after upgrading the kids' phones over the weekend I'm lucky I can afford to eat. :wink:

When I have to give frozen meat a quick thaw I put it in a plastic bag and submerge it in hot water. Did it with some brats on Saturday.

Thanks, y'all. Brad, yeah, I don't know why I didn't use hot water...didn't don on me for some reason. Too early in the morning for my brain to function I guess. :?

This was Steven Raichlen's recipe from the Barbecue Bible. It's his Spanish recipe for Spicy Chorizo. I highly recommend it...especially now that you're into sausage stuffing.
