This past weekend marked the start of our competition on the famous Big Green Egg with non other than the acclaimed Patfo Lyons at the helm. Patfro went all in with his Honey Dijon Salmon cooked on Cedar Planks sided with Cedar Smoked Pears with Blue Cheese and Honey Butter. Some of us here prefer to play it safe with our entries but not Patfro, risking his self-appointed grilling reputation on this risky dish. Luckily for us his gamble payed off. The salmon and the pears took on a delicate smokey flavor and aroma that can only be obtained with the Big Green Egg. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the combination of the cedar smoke and honey-dijon was fantastic. The pears were a little under-cooked but this was easily overlooked with the flavor created by the combination of the blue cheese and honey. This dish received the high score of 8.5 stars. Great job Pat.
