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!

Scallops? We're talking about scallops?

To quote allen iverson (kind of) we're talking about scallops for dinner. Have four big fresh ones but have never done them on green egg or anything else in my life.

I've done some research and see that some have done them at 500 degrees direct for no more than 2 mins on each side. 

Anyone have any advice on a good spicy rub to toss on 'em

Also any advice would be great as we give these a shot in a few hours. 

Thanks!

    I would cook them in a hot cast iron pan with some ghee and little lemon, salt,pepper.  Few minutes per side and done.  I like to do them on a Himalayan salt block, but that is probably not in your inventory YET!

    That's how I do them.  No lemon until after I cook though, and last time I used goat butter.  I generally don't clarify my butter for pan frying, don't mind if it gets brown.
