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.

Tip for bacon you use for seasoning.

I saw this on some show. I dont remember what one it was but I have been doing it for a few months and It's amazing. 

Buy some Wrights bacon and remove from original package. Put in Ziplock and freeze. When you need some bacon for seasoning or cooking, cut off what you need. The frozen bacon cuts super easy and you can get exactly what you want. I dont eat the stuff by itself but cook with it often. This saves on waste also. 

Included is a pic of a birds nest on my back porch. Note the mangrates in the background. (they make the pic egg related)

    That's a great tip. We buy a pound of bacon and cut the whole thing in half. Freeze in 2 separate ziplocs and use the half strips as needed.

    Really cool tip- thanks!  I love bacon, but I don't eat it too often.  I have found bacon goes bad pretty quickly in the fridge so this will be helpful.


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    good tip, mon.  For some reason I'm thinking of bacon and eggs.  Get some seasoning on those mangrates - they're rusting!

    You could throw them in the belly of a stick burner for a few months.   After a nice patina built up you'd never have rust problems again.
