Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Put it on about 45 minutes ago and it is up to 104.  Have the cast iron grate on indirect in the XL and have the grate temp reading 255 right now.  Don't want to fuss with it too much more, because my past experience is that the Egg will go up a bit as the meat cooks further.  Overall will try to keep it under 170 for the duration.  Combo 3/4 hickory and 1/4 mesquite for flavor.  Also used salsa/bbq sauce instead of ketchup for the mixture.  Will report back later, but it sure smells good right now.

    When it hit 155, I put on a coat of ketchup and German mustard and let it cook to 160.  It is presently wrapped and in the cooler awaiting friends to arrive.  MMM meatloaf sammies coming up.
