Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Garlic-Dill Pickles (NY deli style)
(for your pastrami, turkey or pulled pork sandwhiches)

12 pickling cucumbers

4 cloves garlic sliced
2 teaspoon pickling spices
4 cups water
4 tablespoons kosher salt
1 bunch fresh dill

mix the water with the salt till dissoved(brine solution).
wash & cut off the ends of the cucumbers.
arrange some dill & some garlic in the bottom of a deep pyrex dish.
place the cucumbers on top with pickling spices.
add the rest of the dill & garlic.
pour the brine solution over the cucumbers to cover completely (use a heavy plate to weigh down)
3-5 days the pickles are done [ half pickled, but will continue to get more sour]
place in the refrigerator

note: any white layer forming on top of the brine is to be removed.
