My wife got me a new weber 22.5 kettle for Christmas so I decided to go ahead and break it in with a few ribeyes and a fillet. This is the first weber that I have ever owned and after the first cook I am now a believer. Very easy to use and turned out great steaks.
My new Weber


Steaks on the grill




Off the grill and resting...mama likes hers burnt



on the plate with a baked potato



A nice salad



We finished with banana pudding



Banana Puddin
6-8 bananas beginning to ripen
1 large bag of vanilla wafers

Layer the bananas and wafers in alternating layers in a medium bowl. I usually do about 4 layers ending with the wafers on top.

Custard for the Filling
3 yolks from large eggs
1 stick butter
2 cups milk
1 TSP flour
1TSP vanilla
1 Cup of sugar
Stir all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan until well mixed and no flour lumps. Cook over medium heat and stir often until custard begins to thicken and comes to a rolling boil. Stir constantly at this point to prevent scorching and remove from heat and pour over the bananas and wafers.

Meringue-optional
3 egg whites from the eggs
1/2 cup sugar
Mix with a hand mixer until a thick meringue is formed. Add to the top of the pudding and bake under a broiler briefly until the meringue browns. Be careful because it will burn very quickly.
Enjoy

Nice gift. Very Happy It's a very versatile grill and Weber has a ton of accessories for it. The first thing I bought was the charcoal side baskets.

Enjoy!!! I know you will.

Congrats on your new toy! Grub looks great. I loves me some Nanner Puddin too! My recipe is exactly like yours and it comes out perfect every time (I don't do the Jell-O mix).

thanks bugs, I found that recipe on the back of a vanilla wafer package years ago and I have used it ever since. If I make nanner pudding, I always make it from scratch, I never use the box mix or the cool whip.

Brutus, on your nanner puddin once your pour the stuff over the wafers and nanners is that it? Do you put it in the fridge to set up? Once you pour do you go right into the meringue. Never made one but my Mom made one growing up that was killer good. Thanks

Looking good Brutus1964. I had never owned a Weber before either. One of my neighbors moved out and abandoned theirs in their back yard. I figured if they were going to mistreat it I should put it to good use and give it a good home.

Try ribs with the coals all on one side for an offset cook. Mine turned out real tasty as I am ssure yours will too. That's where the coal basket's Smookin Mike mentioned will come in handy.

jeepdad, I generally just pour the custard over the banana and cookie layers and let it soak in until it cools to room temp. It is great hot but I actually like it better served cold. I don't always make the meringue but if or when I do I usually pour on the custard and let it set while I make the meringue. That gives a few minutes for the custard to soak into the cookies on the bottom layers. You can add the meringue and as soon as you have it ready and bake it under the broiler to let it brown. This only takes a couple minutes and will burn very fast. You can eat it out of the oven or out of the fridge. I would only leave it out until it cools a little then into the fridge.

RollinontheRvr- I will definitely be using the weber to cook some ribs and chicken and anything else I can catch. I will look into to getting those coal baskets as well.
