Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

Needing to cook four eight pounders on the large - any suggestion for fitting them all on at one time? Normally cook two using the V rack with platesetter and drip pan method.

  • Do you have an extra cooking grid?  If I'd put two on the bottom, rest a cooking grid on top of them and put the other two (smaller two) on that grid. Maybe a 3 down 1 up would work as well.

    Isn't it hotter up in the dome, so wouldn't you put larger on top?

  • Not if you are building a pyramid type pile.

    Question, if cooking 2 butts side by side, doesn't the outside meat cook faster therefore creating a need to rotate the meat?
