Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Well it has been 2 weeks and have not had time to cook anything. So I decided tonight was the night even though I still did not have a lot of time.

So we are getting ready

Time to lite the fire starter

meats on, they were a little thin, I was trying to stretch a dollar when I sliced up the loin

six minutes later, the finished product

Not bad, but six minutes was a little too long for these thin steaks. Hopefully next weekend will be better.

    GREAT first cook.You need to cook to internal temp instead of time. ;) You are started in the right direction.An instant read thermoter is invaluable.Mine has saved WAY more $$$ in food than the initial cost of the thermometer. ;)

    I normally cook to the internal temp, but I watched the DVD and they cooked at 650 for 2 minutes, flipped, 2 more minutes, then flipped again and shut off the air for 2 more mintues and they came out perfect.

    Just need fater steaks.

  • Very nice first cook, and nice pics too. I would recommend a Thermapen, from Thermoworks.

    Sounds expensive, but worth every penny!

    Nice first cook. I agree with Hoss about internal temp. Warning......Cooking on the egg is very addictive!

    Nice cook and great pics. If you are ever faced with thin steaks again...hot tubbing works wonders.

    You put individual steaks in freezer bags or vacuum seal and immerse in water that is somewhere around 100* for about a half hour per inch of thickness. The meat then only has to come up 25* to 35* to be cooked. A basic sear finishes the cook and the meat is done to your liking through the whole cross section. With a thinner steak or chop it allows you to do rare or medium rare consistently.

    Thanks, they were already in vacuum sealed bags. I like to buy the Crown Sterling Ribeye loins and cut them into steaks and then, I vacuum seal them individually and put in the freezer for camping trips or whatever they are needed for. Will have to give that a try.
