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

Got a few salmon going with Kahlua, Maple Syrup, Lemon slices and chives.

Placed indirect 350F on BGE on cedar planks. Decided to do indirect 'cause last plank direct burnt up after 1 hour under water. Probably tooo close to the fire.

Let them cook for about 15-20 minutes:

While we were eating the fish with a nice avocado salad, I shut the BGE down and placed some peaches on that had been drizzled with Gran Marnier and Dizzy Pig. When we were finished with the main course, the dessert was ready. Filled with vanilla ice cream and enjoyed. Oops forgot plated pics.

  • What a great looking meal.  Love salmon.  Did you get the smoke flavor from the plank doing it indirect?  Thanks.

    Yes.  Just not as much as direct but nice flavor.  The Kahlua gives a nice flavor also.

    Did you marinate it in Kahlua or baste it with Kahlua?

    Every time my elbow bends my mouth flies open.

    I mixed kahlua, maple syrup and lemon pepper and basted 10 minutes before cooking.
