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!

BGE use-primarily low&slow/hot&fast/another mix/or something else?

Curious as to the predominant use for your BGE; smoker, grill, oven or other.  I'm in the smoker category with the primary temperature band 250*F +/- and dipping lower (180's) for smoking peppers, salmon and a few other goodies.  And I do go to the "hot&fast" side for steaks (cow or other), some roast cuts, spatchcock anything, pizza and the appetizers.  Probably run 80+% low and slow.  Of course, with the required time for low&slow it does skew the curve.

     Wife and I have steaks every (most) Sunday nights and pizza on Friday nights so of course those are high temp cooks. Ribs are about every other week and a pork butt when my daughter says she needs it.  She has three teenage boys and they love Q.

    I've got a Cookshack Smoker and a CharBroil infrared grill also and I hardly use them at all.

    3-2 in favor of high temp on average

    So far, I'm running approx...

    40% high heat (steaks and pizza)
    40% grill (burgers, brats, chicken)
    20% low and slow (ribs, sirloin tip, butt this weekend)

    Bought a pizza stone recently and pizza will likely bump my high heat usage up a bit. Pizza is absolutely awesome on these things!

    I am more on the low and slow side...I do a lot of pork tenderloin, chicken, pork steaks, etc all of which I tend to stay south of 300 degrees on.
