Ingredients

– ½ small leek, sliced into thin rounds
– celery stalk, thinly sliced
– ⅛ celery root, cut into ½ inch cubes
– 1 large shallot, peeled and chopped
– 1 clove of garlic, peeled and minced
– 3 sprigs of thyme
– 1 qt water

3½ tsp salt
– 2 small pumpkins of about 1½ lbs each
– 3½ oz. (100 g) feta cheese
– Watercress for garnish

Instructions

Set the EGG for direct cooking at 350°F.

Put the cut vegetables, thyme sprigs, water, and salt in the Dutch oven then put it on the cooking grid. Place the pumpkins next to the Dutch oven and close the lid of the EGG. Roast the pumpkins for about 30 minutes while the vegetables are cooking. After 30 minutes, check the pumpkins and the vegetables in the Dutch oven to see if they’re soft. Continue to cook if they’re not soft yet.

Remove the pumpkins when cooked and leave to cool. Remove the Dutch oven from the EGG and remove the thyme. Peel the pumpkins, halve them, and scoop out the seeds. Cut the flesh into chunks and add them to the Dutch oven. Purée the mixture in a blender and pour through a sieve, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

Cut the feta into cubes and put them into different bowls (suggested: 8). Pour the soup in the bowls and garnish with the watercress.

– 2 racks of baby back or spare ribs
peach preserves

Rib Seasoning:
4 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp dry mustard
2 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp salt

Instructions

Prepare your EGG for indirect cooking by setting the convEGGtor at 300°F.

Combine all the rib seasoning spices in a bowl and mix well. Remove the membrane from your ribs and trim them as preferred. Apply the seasoning to both sides of the racks.

Place the ribs on the Rib and Roast Rack with the bone side down. Let cook for one hour. Flip the ribs and rotate the rack to its other side. Cook for another hour.

Baste the ribs in your peach preserves then wrap them in aluminum foil. Make sure to wrap tightly, so as not to allow any gaps that would promote steam. Cook for another half hour.

Unwrap the ribs and cook them directly on the grid for an additional 15 minutes to let the glaze set. Allow them to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
