Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Magic: inferior chicken meets the Egg and suddenly improves

In a big rush the other day -- no time to shop for decent meat or chicken. Picked up two cheap "national brand" chickens processed in the Deep South and then shipped out West in a semi-frozen state -- no names, but you probably know the brand I mean. Kind of big birds [5 lb. each], kind of fatty, odd grayish color. Not the sort of thing I would usually cook.[p]Took 'em home. Chopped 'em in half. Slathered 'em with cheap yellow mustard and season salt. Slapped 'em on the Egg at 300 with some oak chunks. 90 min. later, magic. Those generic chickens were brown and tender and smokey, and the fat had dripped off. [p]Moral of the story -- yes, the Egg costs several hundred bucks, but I wonder if we could make up the difference over time by buying really cheap meat?? [Probably not a good idea.]

    Prof Dan,
    I know what you mean. Yes, the BGE can make the most amazing steaks you've ever eaten. But I'm almost more impressed by how decent a steak you can get from a cheap cut of meat.
