Steak Tips and Harvick Wins Again

My pulled/tore muscle is getting old! It only hurts when I breathe or move, so no real problem. In any case, I wanted some real food tonight, so it was Big Steel Keg time! I just taped up my side tight to minimize the pain. A few beers will also help.

Steak Tips
I went with some steak tips for today's dinner. One set I marinaded for a few hours in Stubb's Beef marinade. This stuff adds some serious kick, so be careful is you use it! Here are the ingredients all ready:

The darker steak tips are the marinaded ones. I also cut up some peppers and onions and also had some whole mushrooms. I oven baked some small potatoes as well. I went all out.

Using skewers can make handling a bunch of small things easier on the grill. Here are the assembled sticks:


Letting the Steel Keg heat up:


I cooked them around 600 degrees for 10 minutes total. Almost done:


Dinner is served!:

It was really good.

Kevin Harvick Wins at Martinsville
I almost hurt myself even more watching #29 Kevin Harvick run down the leaders at the end of the race at Martinsville:

And he did not even wait until the last lap, he took the final lead with 3 laps to go! Sorry Dale Earnhardt Jr fans, Kevin was going for the kill! This is fun stuff.

If you win at Martinsville, you get a monster Grandfather Clock along with the trophy! This is so cool:


Homework
I need to run some screens tonight and see what I may do next week market wise. I am 100% in cash after the great past couple of weeks of trading. I will update later if I see anything good.

Added:
Final review in NCT, SA, CEF, KBX. Have to work some charts.

Have a good night.

Thanks man! Between the food and the Harvick win I was feeling a little better.

Hey, where did all the snow go?

Great looking grub, and nice to see you playing through the pain. Just keep that duct tape handy and get someone else to haul the Keg around; you'll be better before you know it.

Hey Zyde!

Thanks! Food was great, my side is bad. Thanks for stopping in!

I've never heard of this Big Steel Keg until now -- whoa, that thing's a beaut!

And, yes, looking at those pics just started making me salivate. Damn you, GYC!!! :)

Well, hopefully some good eating was just what your body needed to heal itself. How much longer until you trip to the Caribbean?

Holy crap, that food looks SO GOOD. Why am I not your neighbor?

Is it me, or does your Big Steel Keg look a lot like R2D2?

Hey David,
I will be gone the last week this month, cannot wait!

JH, yeah it does look like R2D2 a bit. I can assure you that had NO influence on my purchase decision.

Those steak tips look so good. What did you use for the marinated ones?
