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!

    I'm new here as well!  And boy, I'm sure glad some people see steaks as simple!  Steaks are probably the hardest thing for me to cook properly and consistently cook them properly.  Definitely post pictures of your first cook!

    Welcome, Bienvenue! Always room in the asylum for another Canuck.... You are just downwind (generally) from @Little_Steven, on a clear summer night you can probably smell one of his multiple eggs cooking away.

    try reverse sear. i find thicker steaks are easier. indirect, 250 low and slow. i shoot for 100-110 degrees..remove steaks and loosley cover with foil or set out. remove the place setter and let it roll, no top and vent wide open. at 600 i put them back on till 130-135...thermapen is a must. pull and set uncovered for 5 minutes...try it

    Welcome from a Oklahoma Egghead here. Looking forward to more posts. 

    We like pictures and documenting your cooks are a great way to remember what you would or wouldn't do the next time around to make your food even better. Almost every post somebody can learn something from, either a recipe, technique, or tip it all makes us better eggheads!

    Thanks for the tips!  I'll definitely try that out as soon as I get my Egg.  And I've already got a Thermapen that I use for BBQ, grilling, and homebrew.  I'm guessing that lack of exact control of temp is making cooking stakes harder than it is on a BGE.
