Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

Saber gas vs. BGE

Man I love work competition's.  So today we are cooking pork loin. Half on a Saber gasser,  one on a LBGE, now I am an egghead, but I do have to give this grill a chance, I mean I do have to sell them, but I dont have to like it. So I will post pics and see who is the winner. Really the Saber looks like a pretty cool gasser. Shhhhhhhh.imageimage

    Switch the loins out after they are cooked and you will be able to sell the gasser for a ton

    OK Chris @chris123stock - I want advance notice of these cooks, given I am only about 30 minutes away, I was in to Trader Joe's across the street yesterday, would have postponed my drive by until today.....

    I like my gasser for the wrapped 'grass, use it all the time, SWMBO does not like the smoke on her veggies - says it makes them taste like meat - What's wrong with that?

    Egg would win that contest with one mate tied behind its back. All that's going to do is sell fewer gassers.

  • Now personally I feel that the BGE was better,  only because it had more flavor, not just in how it was prepared but how the internal flavor, just had more to gowith. Ok the gasser want bad,  it's a nice grill, but to the gasser guys, well you can't beat the taste of the BGE, but I will always let the masses get a gasser and leave the real cooking to the individuals that have the spirit,  and the willingness to get out there rain or shine, and take a beating to cook an amazing meal. YES I think I won in taste and presentation.  To Those who say different well there is next week,  and I will win again.  :D

    Well I hate to be contrary, but I think the gas pork looks like it was cooked better. It is looks ever just slightly pink ... perfectly cooked, and I don't see that in the egg version.  And the prosciutto from the gasser looks better ... a little crispier.  I would recommend ditching that griddle as it is doing nothing to help this cook.

    Good call on the griddle, just thought I'd try it, personally I dont like any pink in my pork, but thank you for your input, I know its better if you can get the whole deal see it, taste it. But thats life lol. Plus I will always say I won anyway, the gasser cook went home early ha ha. I think he was sick of me talking crap.

    Taste is the ultimate decider, and I was just judging looks.  Do yourself a favor, if it is pork loin or tenderloin, try it cooked direct to 140 degrees, and let it carry over to 145.  It will be slightly pink like that, but guaranteed to be tender and juicy, and that's what that cut of meat deserves.

    The griddle is my go to device for burgers.  I also use it if someone brings over steaks that are too thin.  There is nothing like putting the griddle to some burgers to get some good crust on the meat before it get too well done.
