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!

Good morning from the west coast. I was introduced to the "BIG GFREEN EGG" in 1998 while dating my "GA PEACH" who is from Atlanta. The long distance relationship developed, we married, she and the "EGG" relocated to California. Thanks to the forum I became the "Grill King of the San Joaquin Valley". Over the years I've compiled a 3" thick receipe book just from the forum. Last year I had an end of the summer party for the people in my unit, baby back ribs and pulled pork sandwiches w/cole slaw. Had some trouble conviencing them that slaw makes the sandwich, needless to say they're hooked, and can't wait for the party this October. My "Peach" is back in Atlanta, attending her class reunion and visiting with her family, so last night I had a buddy over for dinner. Did the always perfect 3/1.5/1 method, w/ Jim's Jack Sauce. Brought tears to his eyes. He claims they're the best ribs ever. As all you "EGGERS" know those accolades are made everytime we open the dome. I've located a source for Hickory & Oak lump in the bay area. Most places on the west coast only carry mesquite. I'll be in Atlanta Monday & Tuesday for work, will definitely stop by "BGE". Getting a little long winded, so I'll close with this...Love life & live it to its fullest in happiness and health!
PS. For those wondering,the name West Coast Smokey has two meanings, I'm also a Detective with the Sheriff's Department.

  • The Naked Whiz,
    They're baby back ribs, perfected by fellow "EGGERS" Tim M and Gfw (check the archives).[p]Basically it's as follows:
    3 hours indirect 200-250 degrees
    1.5 hours indirect 200-250 wrapped in foil
    1 hour split between indirect & direct, adding sauce last 30 minutes if desired.

  • Char-Woody,
    I'm honored by your quick response, you and Elder Ward are truely the "deacon's" of the forum. I've enjoyed your Firecracker Brats and simple butterflied chicken numerous times. Hope in the future I'll be able to contribute, there is so much knowlege and expierence on this forum. In my line of work we call this an addiction.

    West Coast Smokey,
    I've got a great 12-step program: the 12 steps from the kitchen to the Egg. (Doesn't cure the addiction, but it sure does fuel it!!!) Welcome.
