    Grilling Notes - Stuffed Chicken Breasts Monday - 11 January 2021

    This is a grill event that I mostly captured from a comment in one of the Recteq F'Book groups. It sounded good, so I copy, pasted, and sent it to the "Main Chef", she said, yep lets do it, and walla, here we are. It's good she has a clue what she's doing because after reading the post, my...

    Grilling Notes: Sunday Pizza on the Bullseye - 3 January 2021

    ....One could understandably scoff at my contention that a whole scale Cable/Internet/Phone service outage would impact a a simple pizza cook on the Bullseye.......I would.....but hear me out.......one of the down sides of living where we do is, when you lose some infrastructures (electricity...

    Delayed Online Notifications (Temp status....)?

    I've seen some discussions ref. problems with the wifi apps, but what we're noticing today, is the WiFi application seems to be working fine, however the online notification of temp status seems to be anywhere from 15-20 min delayed. Wonder if it's a "Christmas Eve" traffic load problem...

    Grilling Notes: Spatch-Cocked Sunday (Smoked) - 20 December 2020

    This grill is VERY similar to the Spatch-Cocked chicken we did back in early November, but wanted to try it on the Bullseye vice the Trailblazer. The Bullseye performed with no problems, also configured with a water filled drip pan sitting on the heat diffuser - no problems at all. Grill...

    Grilling Notes - Ribeyes on the Bullseye, Friday 18 December 2020

    Ever have a cut of beef that you simply aren't very good at? Seems like these Ribeyes (at least the last two cooks of them) have my number. Nothing special about this evening's cook - no reverse sear, just cooking a couple of Ribeyes on the Bullseye w/Grill Grates. About the only thing I DID do...

    Grilling Notes - Reverse Sear Ribeye Tuesday (Trailblazer & Bullseye) - 8 December 2020

    Tonight’s grill is VERY similar to the NY Strips we did a few weeks ago, but with some cheaper cuts of steak from our local grocer (Brookshires) - I know you thought I was going to say Walmart, but we actually do have a choice with grocers near us, not a LOT of choices, but we do have some...

    Grilling Notes: Saturday Pizza (Thanksgiving Leftovers) on the Bullseye - 28 November 2020

    BLUF: The Bullseye performed VERY well as a pizza oven (at least in our first experience). Today’s event was based on a couple of Youtube videos I’ve seen for Pizza on the Bullseye, combined with our need to use up some of the leftovers from our Thanksgiving feast - PLUS an ongoing desire to...

    Grilling Notes: THANKSGIVING Double Trouble - Both RecTeqs Engaged - 26 November 2020

    Note: Moving this Grilling Note to "The Lounge" as it covers both the Trailblazer and Bullseye for the same event. Not sure why we put so much effort into a Thanksgiving meal that at most will serve 6 people... We’re taking meals to as many neighbors who will take them, and we’ll probably...

    Grilling Notes (Hybrid) - NY Strips on a Friday Night! (Trailblazer & Bullseye Workout) - 20 Nov 2020

    We are now 2 x recteq grill owners. Some of you are going to laugh, others will simply say “what an idiot” - both reactions are certainly warranted, but hear my logic. 1) Trailblazer sets in front of the house (under a grill gazebo), but it is covered from the rain during a grill session - it...

    Grill Notes: Petite Filets on a Skewer - Tuesday, 8 Sep 2020

    Today’s grill pretty much validated our process for grilling petite filets (which we do a lot for steaks….). It was the 2nd set of smaller filets we’ve done since owning the RT-340. Prep, heat, and cook times are pretty consistent. Only delta here was the use of wood skewers to help manage the...
