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!

Too hot?

edited 7:52PM in EggHead Forum
The FAQ answers a question about what to do if the BGE gets too hot.
Is there a temperature limit? What happens if it exceeds it?
(I can't use LOX to get the charcoal going quickly?:-)[p]How does one get the ash out (from the mini) Since BGE's are too heavy to invert easily, and the innards would probably fall out and break, I'm guessing you have to brush the ash in the firebox through holes into the base, and then scoop it out through the door/vent?

Food P&E ratio:
If it takes longer to Prepare it than it does to Eat it, it's not worth making it in the first place.

    Doug Warner, What FAQ?, and NO, don't use LOX ;)
    later, ChefRD
    p.s. Are you telling me PP isn't worth it? :)

  • ChefRD,[p] The FAQ's, such as they are, can be found HERE. I agree; can't imagine cooking pulled pork in such a way that it would take more time to eat it than it would to prepare it. Judging from how fast a 9lb. picnic roast disappears when I have ten guests eating it, I think I'd have to use that LOX as a marinade!!![p]MikeO
