Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

    Cut the belly and little flippers off with cooking scissors.  Use a knife to score a deep cut in the belly.  Split the back with the scissors.  Garlic, pepper, butter pats and lemon or lime on the belly.  Light the XL in the back, so you have direct and indirect, and bring to 400, raised.  Do shell down for 5 minutes, direct, the belly down for a few minutes indirect.

    Whole tails look great, but the best way to eat is to harvest both, cut to chunks and dump in hot, garlic butter.  Then share with The Spouse and try not to notice the hot butter running down her chin......
