Info
This recipe looked really tasty on paper and was simple enough, but presented some difficulties on a Large Big Green Egg. At times the pan was cooked over direct heat and at others indirect. I do have a Half Moon Raised Grid I could use for direct indirect, but I wasn't sure if the frying pan would fit. I tried doing a setup on the AR that I think may need some tweaking. The potatoes turned out excellent, but I did have the sticking problem the high heat sear at the end was intended to solve. I will let the pictures tell the story, but the bottom line here was while they weren't as pretty as they might have been but they tasted excellent. No one commented about the appearance because they didn't know how they were supposed to look. Based on the taste I was asked to make them again next week.
