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!

    I have never done it, but i would imagine you would use a standard recipe and cook it at the same temp you would in the oven. 

    I would suggest using the platesetter legs up and set the pan of lasagna on the cooking grid.

    Not sure there is any benefit for cooking a lasagna on the BGE, but let me know how it turns out.

    Why not?  With a platesetter you can bake anything on the Egg you can in a stove.  The real question is would it be any different?  I suppose if you did it open top with strong smoke it might be.

    Here are some veggies I did for a large cook, that were more or less done the way you would do lasagna.  They turned out great, but not any different than done inside.  I did them on the Egg, just because I wanted to.

    Yes, just be careful about burning the edges.  I was not watching this one very close.

    Sure, the Egg is just like an oven, just fueled by lump...and ovens used to be fueled by wood and coal anyway. Placesetter legs down and 3 lil green feet under your casserole dish. I've done mac n cheese before, among other casseroles.

    I did a curry on the bge last week and pilau rice, it took on great smoke flavour, grilled the chicken first and threw it in the sauce to finish, I would recommend doing anything you like on it, my wife said it was the best curry ever.

    sometimes cheese picks up too much smoke flavor, i might cook it mostly with sauce on top and add the last layer of cheese towards the end.

    Sure you CAN, but why not just cook it in the oven?? Unless you want smokey flavored lasanga...

    I did one not to long ago. It was really good. The temp was the same as a normal lasagna. The noodles and cheese picked up a hint of smoke and really enhanced the flavor.

    fishless: foil for the majority of the cook and then remove the foil for browning and a little smoke.

    I made chili on the egg last winter, but smoked a 7-bone roast by itself, let it cool, and then made the chili on the stove with it.  I would do a lasagna the same way.
    Wonder what smoking the noodles a bit before boiling would do?  Especially no-boil noodles?
