Cookout Planning & Bush Beans Giveaway

I have received my cookout kit from Bush's Best Grillin' Beans this week. 

When they said "cookout kit", I was not expecting Emile Henry ™ and Rosle ™ items.  Very nice, Bush Beans!  And look, they made sure mine was green so it will match our Big Green Eggs:)

For the cook out I'm grilling flat iron steak and Bush Beans has asked me to pair that with the Bourbon and Brown Sugar recipe of Grillin' Beans.  After kicking a few ideas around, here's my "plan of attack".   I'm going to use Alexis' grill set up for indirect heat to cook potatoes and the Grillin' Beans.   I'll use my grill set up for direct heat to grill the steak and make a sauce.  Here's my draft menu:

Grilled Romaine Heart Salad
with a warm bacon dressing

Grilled Flat Iron Steak
thinly sliced and served with a bourbon mushroom sauce

Bourbon & Brown Sugar Grillin' Beans
no doctorin' needed

Twice-Fire Roasted Potatoes
stuffed with herbs & cheese

Do you like my new tool kit?  Do you want it?  You can't have it!  But I will hook up one lucky winner with the same kit.  As part of kicking off the opening of Grillin' season (for you slackers that don't grill all year round, ha ha), Jay, Duke, and Bush Beans are going to give one of my lucky readers the same set up and a supply of Bush Grillin' Beans.
