Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

Two firsts for me.

1. I made mini pizzas on the mini. They were delicious.
2. I'm making cold smoked beef jersey with cherry wood. The wet sauce I used was a mix of raising the steaks, worstichire sauce and honey. I got the egg and guru holding at 175. I'll keep it posted as things change/go. So far I only have a pic of the weight of the jerkey.

    Just a homemade crust, bbq with chicken. It was really good. They were thin crust and they were just crisp enough to have a nice crunch sound

    I am interested in the beef jersey?  I made a bacon dress for my wife but she will not wear it...

    I made a big batch of jerky and posted it last week. Just used salt and pepper. It turned out great. What cut did you use? I used cube steak pounded out very flat.

    Cheap round is best for jerky. Rib eye and the fat content would not be that good or last very long. Fat gets rancid imo

    Suprisingly the fat wasnt to much, i was able to strip away most of it.  Ill try round next time.  It was really good! it was just over cooked.

    Setup:
    Mini woo with pizza stone on top of the grid. 

    Temp:
    400

    Time:
    About 7-9 minutes.  i was cooking it when i was also prepping the LG for the beef jerkey, so im kindof guessing on the time.

    The finished product had a crunchy crust that didnt bend when picked up, but it was soft and moist.
