Christmas Dinner

What is everyone making for Christmas Dinner?

I'm thinking about doing some homemade Swedish meatballs and cooking some radicchio wrapped in pancetta on the Primo. I will probably do another vegetable on the grill as well. I had originally planned on doing a couple chickens (wrapped in bacon obviously) on the Primo, but I really like the smokey flavor from the charcoal in veggies.

Most will probably have to google some of this but the following has been our family Christmas dinner for decades:

huge prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, brusell sprouts with walnuts, some other side dishes, salad, and for desert, figgy pudding with hard sauce

Probably just a bunch of wagyu and not much else to mess with the taste.

Something on the Big Green Egg standing rib roast perhaps. Jeff, I've never used a Treager but they intrigue me and I have heard good things about them.

We usually do a beef tenderloin, Alton Brown-style with the cumin rub. I'll make some kind of mushroom/wine reduction sauce with whatever nice mushrooms I can find at the store.

Might also do some double stuffed shrimp potatoes. Usually do some braised brussel sprouts or something like that. Adam Carolla cranberry sauce.

For dessert, I like to do a homemade pumpkin pie with brûlée topping, using some sugar pie pumpkins if I can still find any.

Figgy pudding with hard sauce sounds incredible. Maybe I will forgo the pumpkin pie and do that instead.

I usually do Brussels sprouts with pine nuts, butter, and garlic. Walnuts sound interesting. How do you prepare them?

We start with lots of cheeky appetizers, then grilled tenderloin steaks, grilled rack of lamb, baked Smithfield ham on homemade biscuits, fresh salad, roasted red potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, lemon chess pie, various backed fruit pies with ice cream, champagne, and assorted Belgian Triples, with Morgado Tawny Port.

Thankful that the word Turkey is not on the menu list and there is no singing except for old rugby songs outside while the steaks and Lamb are grilling.
