Of course, you need to have your veggie if you are going to eat that much heavy food. I cooked some brussel sprout by using a recipe from Chef David Chang of NYC.

Spicy Brussels Sprouts with Mint Recipe - David Chang | Food & Wine

However, I did't use any rice cereal and mint like David Chang did for his recipe but it still came out great because I used WFO to cook my brussels sprouts. My wife usually don't care for brussels sprouts but I changed her feeling about brussels sprouts last night after she had some of my WFO brussels sprouts.

I might do that when crawfish season start. I thought about that the other day but crawfish when it is just too small to split in half and prepared like I did with the lobster. However, I have done some crazy when it comes to cooking and I surely will give it a shot with crawfish after a few beer.

Tu, The lobster looks great!
As for as the "mudbugs" go in the WFO, my first thoughts are crawfish etouffee, and definately some, left overs (from the boil as a pizza topping . Oops!, I think I just let one of my first dishes out of the bag .

Gulf,

I believe a few people from this forum have tried mudbugs pizza and I may give it a shot during lent season. I have to say I am still in disbelief how amazing the WFO as a cooking tool. Granted that it may take a lot of time to heat up the WFO, but the joy that you get to use wood fire is so much fun. Have you fire up yet?

No fires as of yet. Lots of rain, hot weather and to many hours at work .
I am a little afraid that if I start cooking that I will not finish the decorative stuff. The way it is looking right now that will probably be on after the start of "Bounty Season" .
Geauxe Saints!

Russell,

I wouldn't put myself in the same category as Karanga Dude because he is at another level. I am just a guy who is trying to cook a meal for the wife so that she won't yell at him for spending too much time with on the WFO project.

I butterflied a whole chicken and marinated (paprika, onion, garlic, mustard, black pepper, salt) it for about 6 hours. I heated up the WFO for about 3 1/2 hour. When the WFO temp was about 550 degree, I pushed the chicken into the WFO. After 45 minutes, I checked on the chicken and it was done perfectly. Let it rest for 15 minutes and we went out of town with it. It was the best chicken that I have ever cooked. The skin was crispy and the meat was very juicy. Not a bad Sunday night meal at all. My picky two years old son loves it.

One key advice that I learn from watching a short segment on Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservation” which the great American Chef, Thomas Keller suggested that you should let the chicken sit at room temperature one hour before you cooked it to ensure that chicken cooked evenly.

Can’t wait for Thanksgiving! I have to cook one bird for my side of family and another bird my wife side of the family too.
