Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Harold McGee: no BBQ expert

While I have nothing but respect for Harold McGee (author of "On Food & Cooking", et al), it's clear he knows bupkus about BBQ--read this piece from the NY Times and tell me why we shouldn't all school him on how to cook ribs over charcoal:
Here's his blog, too, where he admits that a rib rack will improve things a bit:

    Well, I wouldn't go that far..... but after reading that article, I'll agree he is not as "on top of" his Weber kettle as he should be.

    For indirect cooking, most folks position the charcoal on the sides of that cooker(their grates actually have hinged doors for adding more coals during long cooks). Now, they sell curved charcoal baskets that clip to the sides of the kettle, which actually allow for a fair amount of space in the middle of the grate for indirect cooking.

    I can actually make some pretty good chicken on a kettle.


    Happy Trails
