Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Weather or Not to Cook? First BGE Try.

I have been hanging out for a while on this forum and finally purchased a medium egg.  It goes along with a Weber kettle, Weber gas grill, and a Weber bullet.  I do like BBQ.  Following the advice of many in this forum, I started with spatchcock chicken (direct with raised grill).  In the normal course of matters, I would not have cooked outside yesterday, not because of the temperature (20 degrees F) but because of the wind (gusts of 40 to 50 mph).  I was amazed how well the egg maintained temperature in such awful conditions.  All turned out well, except that the chicken was a little smokey.  I suspect I did not wait quite long enough before putting the chicken on the grill.  The egg came to temp pretty quickly, and it is hard to judge the quality of the smoke output in a 40 mile an hour wind.  Here's the marinade I used for the chicken:  juice of 1 lemon, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1 tsp. black pepper, 1 tbsp. dried oregano, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, and 2 tbsp. olive oil.  Also baked two cored Fuji apples filled with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Very tasty. 

I have appreciated all the information you have been posting in the forum.  It's especially helpful for a beginner.
