Sunday Dinner

I’ve been quite merrily working my way through the NY Strips from last month, very very tough work, let me tell you…the sacrifices I make for you guys.
Anyhow, as the weather was quite lurvly on Sunday I decided to use the bottom of my WSM as my own little Smokey Joe kettle to grill the steaks over charcoal. After many months of me begging my local Imbibery has finally stocked one of my all-time fav wines

The Mondavi Carneros Pinot Noir is, for about $18, a simply lovely wine. It has very nice fruit and structure and as close to a burgundian flavor as I’ve found in an American pinot under $30. Buy it if you see it.
I wanted to see how much I could cram on the grill; I think 3 NY Strips and 4 ears of corn fit nicely

The nice thing about this ad-hoc kettle is that the grill itself was easy to spin so I could control the cook pretty easily by having the coals piled against one side of the bowl. This gave me both direct and indirect cooking.
Served along with a batch of oven-roasted rosemary/thyme/sea salt spuds (and another bottle of wine, natch) it was a very satisfactory way to end the weekend.
