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

"Best lamb I ever had." -- Wife

I really like boneless leg of lamb, but I've never been very successful in making it on a barbecue. It always comes out dry and tough. So even after a year of Egging, I finally tried it for the first time.[p]Bottom line: major success. I followed the recipe for "balsamic garlic rosemary" lamb in the BGE index, word for word, and it was amazingly tender, juicy, and flavorful. [12 minutes on each side at 400; remove at 130 internal and let it set for 10 minutes before carving.] I used several oak wood chunks on the fire, which added a great Smoky taste without being overwhelming or bitter.[p]Here were the keys, I think: (1) the high heat/short time technique; (2) the remote probe meat thermometer, which told me to take it off at 130 degrees (lower than many recipes call for); and (3) letting it set for 10 minutes before carving, which caused it to continue cooking a little bit before carving.[p]This would be a great recipe for a crowd -- just make three of these and slice them up!
