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

Anyone do their own deli meats off the egg?

After successfully cooking the tri tip I was thinking a meat slicer would make some mean deli meat. Anyone do this on a regular basis?

    Yes. Right now I have Canadian bacon and pastrami in the freezer. Saturday I will cook a boneless pork loin for dinner and leftovers will be sliced for sandwiches. Turkey and chicken breast are done on a regular basis. ;;)

    I recently did a batch of pastrami and turkey breast.  Sous vide first, then smoked.

    I have done Turkey breast. It's the way to go. So much healthier (lol) and a lot better. Real turkey over deli meat, real turkey wins every time!

    So you just buy a whole turkey or what? I really want to grind my own turkey..but I have to buy a whole bird..which would be overkill

    I've done turkey, Canadian Bacon, regular bacon.  Really want to try different roast beefs and other charcuterie.  Turkey was fantastic...

    heres a trick with pastrami, roll and tie it up before cooking, fits the rolls better than long narrow strips. this ones a newengland grey corned beef smoked into pastrami

    @boileregger - Thanks for the compliment.  Here is the post - but I realized I didn't mention much in the way of method etc.  http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1150200/post-holiday-turkey-deal-fun#latest

    After I boned out the turkey carcass I removed the breast from one half of the skin.  I pulled the sinew out of the tenders and stuck them on top of the breast on the skin.  Sprinkled the whole thing liberally with rub (I used High Mountain Steak Rub - but it is heavy on garlic so I knew it would work for turkey) and then put the other breast on top facing the other way to make a more even log shape.  Wrapped the skin remaining skin over top and tied it fairly tight in a log.

    Cooked on the egg indirect at 350 to internal temp of 165.  Pulled and rested for 30 min. before putting in fridge to chill.  I have one more in the freezer - vacuum packed ready to cook.  When I do it I will remove the skin before slicing.  It just got in the way and I didn't want to eat it anyway, so it would be better removed.

    Each roast is over 5 lbs raw - and so I paid about $1.50/lb for the meat.

    Thanks all for the advice. I have been thinking about picking up the Charcuterie book for a while, this might just push me over the edge on it. I would love to do smoked turkey, the wife loves  that stuff.

     

    How do you guys like the slicers you own? I don't own one yet and have heard mixed reviews about them.

    My Chefs Choice 632 is perfect for how little I use it, once a month or so. Paid 300 from Williams sonoma.

    bought my ritter about 10 years ago for under a hundred on close out, use it about once a month and heavily on week or two every year. its worn out now, blades loose and the cut goes from thin to thick now, still works ok for me. thing is we all dont use them everyday and some might use it a couple times and into the closet, if i didnt have a camp with lots coming up to fish i would hardly ever use it, when its time to replace it though itll be another inexpensive one

    I get the prime sirloin at costco and always throw an extra on for slicing.  Little prepared horseradish and thin sliced onion and you are done. I have also done a slightly modified guy fieri baltomore bad boy recipe on the egg with sirloin then sliced thin.
