This recipe was said to take 30 minutes or less using a 12” skillet and the broiler. I changed it to the 12” BGE Cast Iron Dutch oven on the Egg. I finished it on the Egg up in the dome vs broiling it. The bottom line was things took 60 minutes not 30, but it was still quite simple to make. Why did I do it on the Egg? Simple, I could add a little wood smoke flavor to this dish. Why the 12” Dutch oven vs. a 12” skillet.? Two reasons: My cast iron skillet is only 10”, not 12. Also trying to stir the ingredients in a low sided skillet is much harder than a high sided Dutch oven. I will let the pictures tell the story and cut to the chase. This was a very tasty and easy to make Shepherds pie recipe. The extra flavor from the oak wood chips was well worth cooking it on the Egg.
