What to cook with MPO & Reversible Griddle
« on: January 27, 2013, 08:19:45 PM »
I got a 14" cast iron round reversible griddle. I am looking for ideas on what can be cooked or grilled on the griddle under MPO.  I have not tried to use it yet. Meat should cook faster and stay moist. Do I need to season the griddle first?

Thx in advance.

Steaks are the obvious answer. If its not seasoned, you should season it first. The seasoning will probably burn off the bottom. You might Ned to oil the bottom after use so it doesn't rust.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

I will start experimenting with different cuts of meat. I am trying to see if there is a considerable benefit using MPO for grilling.

I tried MPO with a ribed griddle last night to cook hamburgers and baked potatoes.

I got ground beef from Costco, mixed it with parsley and lemon pepper. Cooked it till internal temperature is 160F. Came out really good, very juicy. Cheese melted very quick.

Robed the potatoes with olive oil and salt. Cooked till internal temp is about 215 F.  Potatoes skin was slightly chared, crispy but hard. Best potato skin I ever had. Devoured the entire potato.

I am not an experience griller, but I can tell there is added benefit in the taste with MPO , I didn't pay enough attention to cooking time, I think potatoes were cooked under 40 minutes.

MPO vent was fully open to keep food moist.

I am trying to discover and look for ways to measure MPO / girdle benefits.
