Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

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.]
