ID:	1147273 I’m excited to cook my first Beef Wellington. So many recipes out there. Just gonna do a hybrid of some that seemed straight forward.

    I got a jump on it today. Made the Duxelles and salted the 3lb Chateaubriande.

    4 types of mushrooms- trumpet, crimini, shiitake and maitake. Beef from Chateau Costco.

    more to come.

      I’ve always wanted to understand more about em. No one likes them in my family but the guy at the farmers market where I got these was so full of info I’m gonna make a mission in 2022 to learn. Have you seen Fantastic Funghi on Netflix? Absolutely fascinating.

      Cook the crap out of that duxelles. If it starts leaking moisture your pastry will be f’d. (This has never happened to me at all, lol)

        I’m making my first as well for Christmas. I’m actually not a fan, but it’s my wife’s favorite. So it’s mainly for her.

          Outstanding! One of my favorites. As grantgallagher states, cook the duxelles down, and then cook it down some more.

          My wife and I were talking about making this again soon and then you pop this up! It’s a sign.

          Enjoy your dinner - it’s going to be great!

              I have a question. The recipe I used called to wrap in prosciutto. I did that but didn’t care for it. Too salty and I didn’t want to taste ham.

              Does it need to be wrapped. Can you use something else?

                grantgallagher so just put the duxelles straight on the inside of the puff pastry?

                You cook the duxelles down to draw the moisture out, but I wonder if the prosciutto still provides a barrier for the meat/shrooms so the pastry dough cooks well. But only one way to find out! And, put the duxelles down on wrap and then wrap the meat and hold it in fridge still. I don’t think I would put it on the pastry dough.

                Do you think prosciutto is salty in general, or this particular brand was?

                You need it to keep the puff from getting soggy.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
