- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- Good handful of Todd’s Original Dirt Rub
- 1/2 grated Monterey Jack cheese

- Sea Salt and Fresh ground pepper to taste.
- 6 – 8 Fresh Kaisers
- Mix lean ground beef with all the above ingredients. Mix by hand till all the spices and cheese are thoroughly mixed.
- Divide into meat mix into 6 – 8 equal sizes.
- I like placing patties between wax paper and rolling out to a nice uniform thickness.
- Once formed, lightly brush with extra virgin olive oil and before putting on your EGG.
- Bring your EGG up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit direct heat, before adding burgers.
- Cooking time will vary by burger thickness.
- No more than 8 minutes each side or until burgers are firm to the touch and cooked through.

- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup flour

- Starting with the Crepes mix all the ingredients together until smooth.

- Cook in frying pan at high heat this will cook fast so keep an eye on it.
- Place on plate and refrigerate.
- Take the hanger steak and seasoned well with Original Todd’s DIRT.
- Heat your Egg to High. Sear meat at high heat to lock in those juices and then cook to a medium to medium well. DO NOT OVER COOK THE MEAT please!!
- Then let it rest on a cutting board.
- In another pan with lots of butter a good sprinkle of Original Todd’s DIRT spice and cook on the Egg direct at 350 ish, the mushrooms, onions, green peppers and when tender add 1 can of cream of mushroom and about 1/4 cup of milk and stir until smooth and vegies are well covered.
- Now that the meat has had time to rest take electric knife and cut the hanger against the grain for more tender cuts and slice as thin as you can the whole thing.
- Then add to your pan of veggies and mushroom cream mix and stir it around so the meat all gets covered with the sauce you made. Take out the crepes and start building!!
- Start with one crepe in a dish and spoon in some of that great mixture then top with cheese of choice. I used mozzarella, close the crepe and top with cheese again.
- Bake in preheated Egg at 325 degrees indirect, cook for about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown!

- Steaks, 1-1/2 to 2 inches thick, preferably rib-eyes
- 1/4 cup kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp white pepper
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- Trim the steaks of any excess fat.
- Mix all of the dry ingredients together and apply to both sides of the steaks. Allow to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
- Set the EGG up for direct cooking. To increase sear marks use a cast iron cooking grid; for extra flavor add wood chips.
- When the EGG is heated to 650 degrees, place the steaks on the grill and sear for two to three minutes.
- Open the lid and flip the steaks onto a new section of the grid. After two to three more minutes, flip the steaks once more.
- Completely shut down the EGG by closing the damper top and draft door.
- Let the steaks continue cooking for 3 to 4 minutes, until they reach the desired internal temperature (check with a meat thermometer).
- Remove the steaks and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.

- 8 to 14 pound whole packer trimmed brisket, choice grade or better
- 1/2 cup coarse kosher or Sea Salt
- 1/4cup ground mild chilies such as ancho or chimayo
- 1/3 cup black pepper 2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 cup granulated garlic
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 2 tbsp celery seed Optional: wood chips
- Most butcher shops can get whole packer trimmed briskets, but in certain parts of the country all you can find are the small flat cuts. A 4 to 6 pound flat cut will cook for approximately 8 to 10 hours; an 8 to 14 pound whole packer trimmed brisket will cook for approximately 14 to 18 hours.
- Trim the brisket of any fat that is thicker than 1/8 inch.
- Mix all of the dry ingredients together and pulse in small food processor or blender until well mixed. Spread the rub generously over the brisket, wrap and let rest for one to two hours.
- Set the EGG up for indirect cooking with a plate setter at 250 degrees. Add in wood chips (oak, hickory, apple or cherry) if you choose.
- Cook until the internal temperature of the meat is 150 degrees, then reduce the EGG temperature to 225 degrees.
- When the meat temperature approaches 185 degrees, begin checking for tenderness (insert a fork into the brisket and give a slight twist; if the meat gives easily without much resistance, then you are there).
- Wrap tightly in foil with a half cup of beef broth and rest in a warm ice chest for 1 to 3 hours. It is very important to always slice brisket against the grain.
- Reserve the juice to brush on or dip.
